Yoga and Parenting with Myla Leinweber

As parents, you may have heard that your inner calm will help your child regulate when emotions are running high.  If you have been in the midst of whining, a tantrum, refusal or sibling fighting, you may also know that this is easier said than done. In this 90 minute workshop with Parent Educator and Coach, Myla Leinweber and E-RYT 500 certified yoga instructor, Heidi MacPherson, expect to weave yoga, awareness and educational tips to understand how to cultivate that place of calm even when your child is losing it. The workshop’s aim is to build a practical toolbox that includes movement, breath, understanding physiological changes when emotions escalate and communication tips that will support both you and your child to return to that place of nurturing calm.


This workshop will be available both live and online, and replay will be available for purchase.

Myla gratefully lives, works and plays most of the year in the unceded and traditional territory of the Sinixt First Nations, but was born and raised within the Hahuulthii of the Tla-o-qui-aht Ha’wiih and returns often with her two daughters and husband. After going on maternity leave from teaching kindergarten, she completed a masters level parent coaching program and now works as a parent coach and parent educator to support parents to feel confident, parent the individual child they have (especially the spicy ones), and enjoy parenting more, leading to a long lasting connected relationship.


Myla offers courses and workshops to meet the needs of both the parent and child, and can be found on Instagram @joyful.parents.


Before teaching yoga, Heidi spent 27 years as a piano clinician and music educator with children as young as 3. In 2010, she began to incorporate music and yoga therapeutic principles within her teachings. She is a proud mother of two adult sons and lifelong partner for 34 years. Reflecting back, she understands more fully how parental models of behaviour have generational cyclical impacts. Yoga has supported her especially within moments of dysregulated nervous system responses and emphatically believes that simple yogic practices will bring more joy, balance and love.
