I real­ly look for­ward to the ses­sions with Cathryn. It’s like hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with myself, but hav­ing it val­ued by some­one else, and reflect­ed back. It’s some­thing I’m doing in my week that’s pur­pose­ful.”

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.”

It has been a week since I attend­ed of the Spilt Milk Yoga Week­end Work­shop. Dur­ing the course of the week I have found myself with a smile on my face, reflect­ing on the warmth and under­stand­ing I felt dur­ing the the work­shop, and per­son­al growth and insight I per­son­al­ly gained. Today it took an hour to walk to Kinder­garten, I could have rushed my daugh­ter, told her to hur­ry, over­looked her obser­va­tions of the flow­ers, stopped her from play­ing in the stones, hid­ing in the phone box and deterred her from climb­ing a wall… but I didn’t. When we…

It’s so great to know that there are oth­er women out there who are think­ing and feel­ing sim­i­lar things to me.”

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.”

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.”

A gift for your cur­rent and future self, as a woman and as a moth­er.”

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.”

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.”

  ‘Spilt Milk Yoga’ is an insight­ful read.  It’s heart-war­m­ing, fun­ny, brave and thought pro­vok­ing. I real­ly appre­ci­ate the truth of Cathryn’s words. Hon­est­ly, I don’t prac­tice yoga (of any kind).  But the under­ly­ing prin­ci­ples of the yoga Cathryn writes about not only applies to its dai­ly prac­tice / and moth­er­hood, but to dai­ly life — for any par­ent. It does for me; per­son­al­ly, and as a proud father of two boys: sev­en­teen years and a four­­­teen-month-old. I tru­ly enjoyed it. The pages in my copy are rid­dled with pink high­light­ed areas (from cov­­­er-to-cov­­­er) that I found rel­e­vant not just from…

To set the record straight this isn’t your tra­di­tion­al par­ent­ing book. Spilt Milk Yoga is a book to nur­ture and guide moth­ers along this beau­ti­ful, but also some­what con­fus­ing and frus­trat­ing jour­ney by approach­ing moth­er­hood as a path to greater self-knowl­­­edge. Each chap­ter is short and sweet to meet the needs of the busy moth­er. With­in each chap­ter the author shares her own hon­est, down to earth and humor­ous par­ent­ing sto­ries, a prac­ti­cal prac­tice applic­a­ble to each expe­ri­ence and a guid­ed self-inquiry for moth­ers to con­tem­plate, respond to, devel­op, and record their prac­tice. Ques­tions asked include: Will moth­er­hood ruin my…

I am LOVING the book, tru­ly. Not quite fin­ished yet but lov­ing the short chap­ters which work per­fect­ly for the tired nights or quick cof­fee breaks. I espe­cial­ly loved the quote about your child’s behav­iour being a reflec­tion of your own behav­iour — that has stuck with me this past week as my daugh­ter has been test­ing. It’s so easy to get frus­trat­ed and so that quote helps me check in before my reac­tion. I also find I strug­gle with the ques­tion­naires, but in a good way! They make me think, and it will be inter­est­ing to go back in…

Thank you Cathryn My hub­by ( Mark / Mr Uber) just pre­sent­ed me with your book! You have total­ly nailed it … I have been a mum since I was 21 -three teenagers lat­er and I’ve nev­er read any­thing that con­nect­ed the busy and beau­ti­ful strug­gle of moth­er­hood. Feel­ing like you have lost your way on the jour­ney and yet con­tin­u­al­ly evolv­ing to cope with the ever chang­ing sit­u­a­tion. Cry­ing over the spilt expressed milk brought back so many mem­o­ries …all the spilt milk over all the years . I look for­ward to using my book to give me light…

I am lov­ing this book. I love that it gives me per­mis­sion to pick it up and put it down- it’s not anoth­er book dusty on the shelf mock­ing me for nev­er fin­ish­ing it. It calls me and encour­ages me. It chal­lenges me and inspires me. It makes me sigh and realise I’m not alone whilst mak­ing me laugh. I love that it’s writ­ten by a NZ woman and it fits in our cul­ture. I love that it will be with me for a while. My moth­er whose youngest child is in her 40’s just asked ” can you make…

I final­ly picked up Cathryn Mon­ro’s book Spilt Milk Yoga last night and start­ed read­ing. It. Is. Awe­some. One of the best yoga books I’ve read all year. And if that’s any­thing to go by… this event will be awe­some too. Moth­ers need this (fathers do to… but for now, we’re focus­ing on moth­ers). It doesn’t mat­ter whether you’ve ever been on a yoga mat before, or whether you just hate yoga pos­tures. This is the yoga of self-inquiry. It’s about self-reflec­­­tion, con­tem­pla­tion and adopt­ing behav­iours and tools that sup­port you as a par­ent.
