Nine years ago I was inspired by this beautiful yogini, Tara Lee, who helped me find and instil peace and strength during both my pregnancies. She radiates such calm and joy and I would always think to myself "I want some of that! How do I get that?" And it was because of her I was inspired to continue and explore yoga as a student and eventually teacher. It was an honour and pleasure to have spoken with Tara this week. And it's no secret why she's notably "one of the top 5 teachers in the UK today" (Evening Standard). Through yoga, Tara is changing the experience of motherhood—and life—for women throughout the U.K. and abroad. For those of you interested in practicing with Tara keep reading for a chance to win one of her award-winning DVDs!
In honour of American Mother's Day this Sunday May 8th and throwback Thursday I'm sharing my first photo as a family of four taken five years ago as well as a special article written for all you hard-working, selfless, beautiful and LOVE-ly mothers, mums, mamans, madres, or however you prefer to be called :) Happy Mother's Day and enjoy this wild ride of motherhood!
Three years ago, I attended my first ever wellness retreat. As I’m writing this a day before attending a wellness retreat, in my hometown of Los Angeles, 6,000 miles away from my new home of Barcelona, I’m reminded and inspired by the life-changing benefits of retreats.
A mother today has far less time for herself compared to that of a previous lifetime “B.C.” (before children). What is fundamentally important is how women manage personal energy, as this is what makes a real difference to their health, happiness and harmony. Whether full or part-time at home or at the office, all mothers are working mothers. Constantly juggling and demanding patience, love and energy in order to balance their daily needs and those of loved ones mothers really do need to learn new ways they can take care of themselves. You cannot pour from an empty cup so it's important as mothers we keep our self-care tank full.
