The Embodied Parenting Online Course was created to help parents and professionals foster resilience, regulation and wellbeing through the wisdom of the body. Whether faced with toddler tantrums, unruly teens, bullying, peer pressure or social media struggles, an embodied approach helps us understand and respond effectively to challenging behaviours, and stay calm and connected under pressure. This 2-part video series includes contributions from 7 leading experts.
Course hosts Jane Dancey (Embodiment Facilitator, Embodied Yoga Principles) and Kirstie Seaborne (Embodied Parent Education) are joined by 5 other experts who share insights and practical tools that help parents reduce stress and conflict, increase connection and compassion, and become the leaders our children need us to be.

- help your child soothe and calm

The package contains two videos drawn from the original 5 day Embodied Parenting Online event.
Body Knowledge : How to truly communicate with children whilst valuing yourself, with Dr Lori Baudino (Dance Movement Therapist and Clinical Psychologist)
Drawing on everyday parenting challenges, Dr Baudino explores how viewing behaviour through a lens of body and movement helps us regulate, relate and learn. She shows us how to look beyond labels and judgements to see the wisdom behind the behaviour, and how to respond instead of react. She explains about sensory, temperament and movement profiles, teaches us her DANCE acronym, and guides us through a Sensory Superpowers exercise, before sharing her top embodied parenting tip.
A panel of experts join Kirstie and Jane to discuss why and how the body is a valuable parenting resource.
Themes include regulation and resilience, power and play, mastery and mystery, doing conflict well, growing up our boys, interdependence vs independence and sustaining healthy, dignified and joyful relationships with ourselves, our children, and our world. Featuring Susan Bauer (Dance and Somatic Educator, author of The Embodied Teen) Ted Braude (Director of Boys Work Project, retired psychotherapist) Dr Anna Cole (regional lead for Hand in Hand Parenting), Stephany Dano (Embodiment Facilitator and Roots for Empathy Instructor), and Dr Lori Baudino (Dance Movement Therapist, Clinical Psychologist).
