Brittany Bamrick | Yoga & Meditation Teacher/Co-founder of Bliss Camp Retreats

One of the most impactful decisions I made began before my daughter, Blake, was even born! In my second and third trimester, I completed my 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training as continuing education and to enrich my personal meditation and asana practice. I cannot emphasize enough that it was one of the best life decisions I’ve ever made. Physically, my pregnancy and labor/delivery was as smooth as could be. Emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, all the teachings, lessons, discussions, intentions, meditations, and healing that took place during that course was not only a gift for me, I know it directly impacted her.

I think one of the most important things I’ve done is to be proactive in being present for my child and organizing my schedule to accommodate time with him. There is always going to be work and work will be there tomorrow. Not only is it in regards to work, but also time spent on my phone. Being aware that he is watching and absorbing what I do even when I don’t notice. I think that’s been big impact and helping him know that I’m there for him and he’s valued and has importance.

They’re absolutely amazing, so brilliant, and thriving which I’m beyond blessed to say!!! Greatest challenges have been work/family balance. I’m overcoming that challenge by the “Family Business Board” we have at home. Read more>>
