Mom Deconstructed Podcast Interview

By | Blog, Media, News

Recently I chatted to Liz and Kate, makers of the Mom Deconstructed Podcast series, also mothers and sisters-in-law. They are down to earth, funny, honest and into opening up important conversations about the realities of motherhood. Kate even shares a moment and we look at it from a self-inquiry perspective. Listen here     We cover; When do we intervene as parents vs. letting children be independent. The struggle is worth it when your children are small, rather than when they’re teenagers. The value of being consistent-ish. My wish list of what I knew at the beginning of my parenting…

What are you plugging right now? My new book “Spilt Milk Yoga – a guided self-inquiry to finding your own wisdom, joy, and purpose through motherhood.” It’s the book I wish I’d had when I became a mother. The spilt milk is the challenges we face as contemporary mothers, the yoga isn’t poses, it’s yoga on the inside – how we react and deal with all that spilt milk, from the shock of birth and the shift in identity, to managing our own behaviour while we manage our kid’s behaviour, and navigating the paradoxical social invisibility even though we’re doing…

OWN IT – Embracing Motherhood as Path

By | Blog, Media

An article I wrote for The Yoga Lunchbox about Spilt Milk Yoga – What it is – Where you can get some more – and How mothers are changing the world!  Motherhood is a fast-track opportunity to gaining self-knowledge. What does self-knowledge mean? What is inner work and how do we DO it? How does one actually self-transform? Motherhood is like the most intense, long haul retreat you could ever go on; you meet your best and your worst behaviours, and no matter what you have to show up every day and be “Mum”, even when you don’t feel up to…
