Spilt Milk Yoga is the book I wish I’d had when I became a mother.
I want the best for my children, like all mothers around the world.

In reaction to the spilt milk of my mothering day I react; I flare up, feel hurt, angry, lonely, anxious. The spilt milk will just happen, but I want to grow my conscious response to it, and become more the person I want to be. That’s the yoga part, my inner work. It’s important but it’s not easy.
If you are a mother yearning for greater freedom to love your life while you live it, to be present to your joy and your children, then Spilt Milk Yoga is for you. If you want to connect to your own inner wisdom, (which is in there, no matter how far away from it you may feel) and thrive, not just survive motherhood, then Spilt Milk Yoga will guide you toward growing your capacity for self-knowledge, joy and purpose, not in spite of motherhood but because of it.
