What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a practice that teaches us how to intentionally bring our attention back to the present moment. Throughout our day, we tend to get pulled in 100 different directions as we try to manage and keep up with our daily demands. It is not uncommon for our minds to wander from the here-and-now and ruminate about the past while simultaneously worrying about the future. 

In motherhood, mindfulness helps us be present with our children, manage our emotions and develop enriching relationships with the ones we love. It also helps us cultivate confidence and self-compassion for ourselves. In essence, mindfulness helps us navigate the stressful and savor the wonderful.

Carina Devi

Head of Mindfulness

Hi Mamas, I’m Carina Devi - yoga, meditation, and mindfulness teacher, and single Mama to a wise and wild four year old, Harrison Cedar.

I was fortunate to be raised by yogis who taught me how to live mindfully at a young age. Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness have been the guiding lights and anchors that have given me my greatest joys (like an out-of-this-world-pleasurable home birth), and helped me navigate through the darkest times (like when I was trying to find my way out of the trenches of postpartum depression and anxiety).
