Grab our free "Parent's Pause" bite-size practice

What to do when you have a challenging parenting moment, how to bring yourself back to a balanced state? Here is one answer - this practice can support you on the spot (or in retrospect) in getting more clarity to respond from your true values.

Get your Pause now!

You can recharge and care for your baby - both at the same time! Try our bite-size mindfulness

We will help you be your best.


Do you feel depleted and frazzled? 

Are you frustrated you can't parent the way you always wanted to - consistently supporting the healthy emotional development of your child? 


Does your child's near-constant need for attention and safe care clash with your own emotional or physical needs, and other obligations?

 Does it seem impossible for you to recharge and access peace of mind?


Mindfulness and self-compassion can help turn down your anxious mind, silence the inner-critic so you can meet your struggles with more ease. Being emotionally self-aware and resilient, in turn, allows for strengthening the attachment with your child. This secure bond and your healthy coping patterns are the best gift you can give to your child for life. Kids learn to regulate mirroring you.


We provide tailored practices that fold into daily routines, take away no time, and offer benefits to both: you and your child. 


Let's bring in some ease.

"The best decision. It truly turned my life 180 degree

I was exhausted; my anxiety was through the roof. I felt hopeless. Parents Pause program showed me how many opportunities and ways there are actually to recharge with my baby around. I finished the training restored and grounded, ready to take on new challenges. Now I have tools to keep myself sane :). Interestingly, my son is easier to manage now when I’m in a more confident place.”


Sada, online program participant

"This was the first time I meditated with my son around, I never thought it was possible...

It was absolutely great. It made me more aware of my environment, triggers and my reactions to it. I found it even entertaining."


Ashley, Meditation Playdate participant

"Working with Ela is a must, it made a huge difference in our family

Ela is a great leader, gives compassionate advice and facilitates in a way that is free of judgment and welcomes everyone so that we felt comfortable. She's very kind and eager to support us."


Jen and Chris, coaching clients.

" Ela provides helpful tips and tools each week.

 She also creates an environment that is supportive, open, and accepting. I have learned so much and was able to get rid of my crazy thoughts that were making me feel miserable. Now I enjoy being a mom so much more and I know what to do to help myself when things don’t go according to plan.”
