Mama Be Wellness Retreat


As mothers of young children we often feel disconnected from others, unsure of who we are, anxious about how to parent the “right way” and are left depleted and exhausted. Unfortunately, our most valuable parenting tool -us!- is often so worn out that we can’t be available to our kids in the way they need.

Join us for a day retreat just for moms like YOU – moms who care for our families, care for our communities and often neglect to care for ourselves. Together we will create space to renew and restore.

We will also learn new and practical parenting tools to take home that you can start using right away to more effectively manage challenges in your home and your relationships.

Sarah is a certified hatha teacher at the 200-hour level and has trained in mindfulness meditation. She brings humor, groundedness and open-heartedness to her work.


Lora Ferguson is the Founder and Co-Director of Austin Family Counseling and a Licensed Professional Counselor.
