I don’t like the word tribe. Every time I see a meme on Facebook (gasp…even on the Mommy Fitness page) that tells me to “find my tribe,” my stomach turns over just a little. I don’t like the word tribe. I’m not a tribal girl... But then again, maybe I am.
Hygee. Kinda looks like hygiene, which would be good to incorporate in your life too, but it’s not that word. (As moms we all know it can be easy to get so busy you forget about yourself, while taking care of littles.) But we’re not talking about hygiene. So what is hygee? It is finding pleasure in the simple things in life and embracing the moment. It’s about connection with yourself and those around you.
I started my first company before having children. When you're Type A like me, it just comes natural to work 60-80 hours per week to make it happen. Then my son was born.

What if I told you that there are some cultures that give a new mom the respect and reverence she deserves? I don’t have to tell you that we are NOT living in one of those cultures.

If you’ve been intimidated by the idea of going to a yoga class, I totally feel you.
I didn’t think I had “a yoga body.” I’m not in great shape & I buy my yoga leggings in the plus-size section. And I most certainly can’t to a headstand (frankly, I don’t have any desire to!)
They are all over the internet - Facebook, Pinterest, blogs. And every time you walk through Target, strangers see you belly and feel compelled to share the birth story of every woman they know.
For those of us who work full-time, outside of the home - it can be easy to become dissatisfied with the day to day of the business world. But...
With our new check-in/sale station we've got a great spot to feature local resources for Omaha families!
One of the best parts of what we do is hearing your empowered birth stories. We share them in class and over coffee. But what would happen if we shared them with even more Omaha moms?
You know hearing positive stories from other moms helped you so much during your pregnancy. They helped you gain the confidence you needed. Pass that on to another mom by sending us a short selfie video.
