Spilt Milk Yoga WORKSHOPS, RETREATS and COURSES bring you together with other mothers in a safe environment to reflect, share and engage with your own journey and the inner work of mothering. Using contemplative and dynamic interactive methods Cathryn guides participants through processes of reflection and practice, bringing to life what you are wanting to cultivate in your journey through motherhood. Participants come to understand more about why you do what you do, learn to connect to your own wisdom, joy and purpose, and to practice in real-life scenarios what it is like to apply your discoveries. Expect to reenter family life with customized concrete practices and come away feeling empowered, purposeful, and more connected to self and others.
Spilt Milk Yoga INTRODUCTORY TALK is a 1–2 hour interactive talk at your school, workplace, community group gathering, or in your lounge with friends. Cathryn will introduce Spilt Milk Yoga and guide the audience through a shared self-inquiry conversation. Expect to come away feeling more connected to your community, and with fresh insight into the value of your life as a mother.

What mothers are saying about Spilt Milk Yoga Workshops with Cathryn;
“If you are a Mama who feels a bit overwhelmed and lost every now again (uummmm… I think that is probably all of us), you should check out this workshop. I have attended 2 workshops with Cathryn Monro and have walked away from both of them feeling lighter and more confident in my natural intuition as a Mother. Cathryn has a magical way of helping you to realise that all of the answers to all of the questions are in you, you just need to slow down and listen.”
“I grew as a mother; became more self-aware and with that, more confident, proud, accepting, calm and grounded. The work was invaluable for myself as an individual but also in my place in our family journey. The work has brought me to a place I had not yet reached by myself.”
“A gift for your current and future self, as a woman and as a mother.”
“One of the best tools a mother can have under her belt; a space to reflect, unpack, learn and grow as an individual and mother, all in a safe space. And led by a soul you’ll be so lucky to encounter. Cathryn truly understands motherhood in all it’s exhausting monotony through to it’s all-encompassing joy.”
“I enjoyed the structure of the course; the flow, the meditation/mindfulness, journalling, the size of the group (safe, reassuring space). Truly felt like no judgement from other mothers experiencing similar and yet different journeys.”
“I realised I could still break the chains of trauma that had been passed down through potentially generations and didn’t have to repeat those same experiences with my daughters. This journey also helped me to forgive. Forgive my mother, my grandmother and made me realise that they were just human too, and had their own path to walk.”
“It’s so great to know that there are other women out there who are thinking and feeling similar things to me.”
“The workshop helped link my reactions to some habitual judgements and responses, it gave me much needed clarity. I feel closer to my daughter than I have in a really long time.”
