Deciding how I wanted to raise my 2 girls was a very important decision. I wanted to provide them with tools that would allow them to grow into successful and emotionally stable young adults. Mindfulness & Meditation was a large part of my upbringing. I began to realize it was this foundation that helped me significantly throughout my own life. It allowed me the mindset needed to be successful in school, higher education, relationships, and as a mother. As a medical professional within the neurological world, the benefits of mindful practices became even more evident with the increasing scientific research supporting it. The joining of my scientific mind, and my personal upbringing lead me deeper into my mindfulness journey.After completing training courses with Mindful Schools, my passion led me to begin teaching these valuable skills not only to my own girls, but also to other children within our community.Soon after came the birth of Mindful Buddiez. Drawing upon my passion, medical training, motherhood experiences and inspirations of my lovely daughters, we launched our first character, Omi.
“The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is.”
As I walk hand and hand with my girls on this journey of life, I invite you all to join us. It all begins and ends with “the breath”. Let’s teach our children the value and power that exists within it.
Our Mindful Team,
Co- Founders: Gia Saggar, Bela Saggar
Gia (age 15) and Bela (age 12) are sisters who have been blessed to have mindfulness practices introduced to them from a young age. These techniques have helped them learn to better deal with their emotions as well has introduced them to concepts of kindness, gratitude, self respect and love. Although the 2 girls still have their fair share of fights, they ultimately understand how to STOP, BREATHE & RESET when needed. They are excited to share this mindful concept with other children & grow the "Omi & Friends" brand.
