About this Class

The instructor will share nine important communication skills in every relationship and ways to increase positive communication, deal with differences, manage stress, set financial goals, and maintain a happy and healthy friendship bond. Couples will participate in fun relationship-strengthening activities with their partner during the workshop.

The instructor will also discuss the physiology of love and how the heart-brain connection impacts relationships. She will introduce the concept of mindfulness as a potential way of being present and intentional within the couple relationship.
