Cookie Bites for Breastfeeding Mums

2019-04-12T15:22:29+00:00

Thinking back to the first few weeks after the birth of my son, one of the things I remember the most was the constant hunger once my milk came in. I think I remember it mostly because it felt so strange to go from not feeling hungry (or rather, feeling like I had absolutely [...]

Parents, stop judging parents.

2019-04-08T14:29:46+00:00

Damned if you do, damned if you don't: This is what modern day parenting means. It seems we have fallen into an era of extreme judgement, and I think it's in due in part to the way we have become obsessed with labeling the various parenting styles; co-sleeping vs. crib sleeping, breastfed or bottle [...]

Thoughts on Savasana

2019-04-08T06:00:56+00:00

Breathe in, breathe out. This is not sleep. It's the one time in your day that you can rest your bones, become heavy and weightless all at once. It's the few moments that you can give yourself permission to let go completely. No more tension, no more worry, no more labels. In this moment, [...]

The art of setting intentions

2019-04-08T06:07:39+00:00

As a teacher, I start every class the same; Eyes closed, deep breaths, and time spent on letting an intention sink into mind and body. Sometimes I have a specific intention in mind for the practice, other times I prefer to leave it open to the individual. "Why is it that you showed up [...]

Lessons

2019-04-08T06:13:24+00:00

There are lessons to be learned each day. Little morsels, waiting patiently for us to notice. We only have to open ourselves up to these lessons to receive them. We are the only ones that hold ourselves back, ignoring the moments, missing the chances for metamorphosis; chances for astounding, earth-shaking change. Go slowly, go [...]
