Hi, I’m Brandy! I am married to my college sweetheart, and together we are raising four beautiful and busy daughters 🙂
What I love most about Renew Mama is that it allows me to involve my entire family in yoga. My kids can participate in classes with me, my husband can come to special events with us, and I can go to classes alone for self care as well.
I have taken just about every class that Renew has offered!! Currently, I like to go to Candlelight yoga on Monday (after the kids go to bed!!), Power Yoga on Wednesday evening, and Yoga Flow on Saturday morning. I also like to drop in to Movers & Crawlers and Little Kids Yoga when the day allows for it 🙂
I first found Renew Mama when my now 2.5 year old was only 6 weeks old (Fall 2014). We took Mom & Baby yoga before Renew even had a physical studio. Since fall of 2015 though, I have been regularly taking classes at the current studio.
My best piece of advice is to take time for yourself! Being a mother is so important, but remembering who YOU are is just as important, if not MORE important! No matter how many times someone mentions “self care” you cannot truly understand its worth until you have experienced it. I am a better mother and wife when I take time out for myself; having the studio as a ‘home away from home’ helps my relationships immensely. I can honestly say, I don’t know what I would do without this community!
