Event Details

Come and create, connect and celebrate PANDA week (peri-natal anxiety & depression Australia) at our first Creative Mama Circle.

Facilitated by Lizzy Williamson, post natal depression thriver, dancer & founder Two Minute Moves together with Anna Kellerman, art therapist & founder Mama Creatives.

As mamas we spend our lives making sure everyone and everything else around us is being taken care of. The idea of taking time out for our own self care can seem too hard or not possible. But to do all the things we want to do in our weeks we need nurturing too. This is a morning to reconnect with what it is you need to feel the way you want to feel. It’s taking a moment out of your busy life to be nourished creatively and physically. To discover, and remember, the small steps towards getting your identity and ‘self’ back.

 

 

 


 

About this Creative Mama Circle

Lizzy will be sharing her story with post-natal depression, the steps she took towards overcoming it and take you through a nourishing movement practise that you can realistically implement in to your daily life.

Anna will briefly discuss her life threatening birth story having suffered severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP Syndrome, which resulted in post traumatic stress disorder. She will be sharing a series of practical visual art activities that you can then implement on a daily or weekly basis as a way to heal and nourish yourself at a deeper level.

All art materials and refreshments will be provided plus every mama who attends will each receive a fabulous take home gift bag. Extra prizes and gifts to be won too.

This is a charity event supporting PANDA, with profits from ticket sales and 20% of book sales donated to this worthy organisation. If you can't make our Creative Mama Circle event but want to support PANDA, you can donate here.

Please note that although the morning will be therapeutic this will not be a therapy session.

Leave your mother guilt behind and join your fellow mamas for a morning of nurturing, connection and celebration.

After a brief stint as an actor she started producing theatre and launched a successful nation wide young playwrights competition for emerging writers that ran for 5 years.

Incorporating her love of movement, Lizzy is a certified Personal Trainer, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Presenter, Speaker and contributor to MindBodyGreen, The BubHub, BellaMumma and more. Her workouts have been featured in Lorna Jane’s YouTube channel, news.com.au plus many other fabulous online publications, programs and blogs.

About Two Minute Moves

 


Lizzy Williamson has spent over a decade helping women to get their bodies, energy and confidence back. With more than 50 fun and simple exercises, you'll learn how to make working out a part of your every day, whether you're on the couch watching TV, at the kitchen bench waiting for the kettle to boil, at the playground with the kids or just clinging to a bottle of wine (yes, a bottle of wine can make you fitter!).

Backed up with down-to-earth advice and the inspiring true story of how Lizzy found herself through movement, TWO-MINUTE MOVES is the guide to stopping the excuses and reaping the benefits of a happier, healthier more energised life. It starts with two minutes.
