what is self.ist

Since becoming a Mother, my idea of selfishness has changed drastically. Sleep is precious. Time is treasured. And being alone is sacred. As a Mother, I struggle with giving myself permission to be still, to eat slow and to reset.

Self.ist arose from my desire to change the negative connotations associated with selfishness.  As our social standards evolve, so do our actions, words and thoughts. Yes, the struggle is real, and #SelfCareSunday is also a thing. My hope is that slowing down and softening is no longer a trend, but a lifestyle that we live, breathe and embody 24/7. Self.ist is a stepping stone towards selfishness in the most unselfish way. 

Join us in slowing down and doing something just for you. It's okay to leave the kids at home (with supervision, of course). And, this is not exclusive to just Moms. If you're someone taking care of others, this class is for you, too.

May 18th - save the self.ist date

Make yourself an appointment with yourself. Just like your oil needs to be changed every 5,000km, and your teeth cleaned every six months, so should you carve out time just for you (and hopefully more often than every six months).

Join us on for kombucha cocktails, a live podcast recording, self.ist speakers and a Feelosophy Yoga and Massage class led by the one and only Ashley Brodeur. 

Be sure to buy your tickets ahead of time as these will fly like hotcakes!
