When You Focus On The Good, The Good Gets Better
On October 26, 2019 we held our first Mama Wellness event here at Play Collective. Mamas and Non-Mamas were both welcome to join us at this event! This was a day of self-care for women by women. Mama Wellness was a sold out event, we received such great feedback we will be bringing it back in 2020.
Mama Wellness started around 10:30 am where the ladies had time to check in and check out all of our women vendors, have some yummy Chia Pudding provided by EatGud or some delicious Oatmeal from Wellness-Simplified where they were able to add their nutrient rich organic superfood blends like their cinnamon/chia/acai/maca/cacao.
We started off with an individual sage performed by Citlali Readings and then meditation lead by Annette Romo Yoga, in order to properly set an intention for the day and release any negative energy that was not serving us. After our group meditation session, everyone was able to go to their preferred station. Some of the stations we had available were massages, fascial stretch, hair and makeup. There was a designated time for a group yoga session led by Annette Romo Yoga, which was incredibly relaxing and a good way to move our bodies.
At our upstairs loft we set the tone for a relaxing massage by MYOFLUX Massage Therapist, Alice who also did cupping to increase blood circulation. Pilates Instructor and Fascial Stretch Therapist, Marla performed Fascial Stretches to reduce pain, stress levels, tension and improve sleep to name a few benefits of this stretch. We had mood lighting, calming sounds, aromatherapy towels and an essential oils humidifier.
Since it was Breast Cancer Awareness month, we asked all of our guests to wear something pink in solidarity to the fight against this disease that have affected so many women. We had the honor of having The Grateful Hearts, a Breast Cancer Awareness group speak. We had April & Ali talk to us about their journey with cancer and they provided us with some important information on prevention and self-advocacy.
Towards the end of the event, we had Judith from Citlali Readings give our guests a tarot card reading. We then ended with gratitude journaling and a final meditation. All of our guests received goodie bags with notebooks for journaling and tote bags from Ink Head Design & Prints, in addition samples and coupons from our Sponsors.
We are so happy with the amount of positive feedback we have received about our Mama Wellness event. Some mamas have told us this day was one of the best postpartum days they have had! This made our hearts so happy, we love to be there for our mamas. We have received feedback regarding doing another one and it is in the works for 2020!
