Radio interview with Nigel Hopkins and 1:1 Companion Coaching Session giveaway

By | Media, News | No Comments

Today  Nigel Hop­kins inter­viewed me a year on from the pub­li­ca­tion and release of Spilt Milk Yoga. We talked a bit about Christ­mas, and about the dif­fer­ent ways I’m offer­ing Spilt Milk Yoga out to moth­ers, work­shops, lounge talks, 1:1’s. On the sub­ject of Christ­mas I thought it’d be nice to gift a 1:1 Com­pan­ion Coach­ing Ses­sion to a mum some­where. To go in the draw to win a free Spilt milk Yoga 1:1 with Cathryn, just sub­scribe on the sub­scriber pop up, or at the bot­tom of this page, before mid­night this Fri­day Nov 10th.

By | News, Workshops | 2 Comments

Christ­mas Spe­cial — 25% off 1:1 Com­pan­ion Coach­ing Far from a hol­i­day, Christ­mas can be a chal­leng­ing time for moth­ers. Host­ing. Cook­ing. Bud­get­ing. Man­ag­ing blend­ed fam­i­lies, rearranged fam­i­lies, com­pli­cat­ed, tricky and lov­ing fam­i­lies. Expec­ta­tions. Dis­ap­point­ments. Fair­ness. Hurts. His­to­ries. This won­der­ful time of year can feel not-so-won­der­­ful as we bal­ance the load. How would you like to hold Christ­mas this year? How would you like to hold your wis­dom, joy, and pur­pose so that Christ­mas can be more of what you believe it could be? If you’d like some more options in your approach to Christ­mas, some per­spec­tive in amongst it…

Mother-guilt. Turning Guilt into Gold.

By | Video | No Comments

Moth­­er-Guilt. Ouch. Why does being a moth­er hurt so much some­times? What do we do with “the con­crete block of doubt” that sits in our chests? How is the guilt and pain we feel when we think we’ve let our chil­dren down, an oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect to our wis­dom, joy, and pur­pose? Last night I was inter­viewed live by Kate South­ward for A Yogafied Life       Mov­ing through mum guilt… Hel­lo beau­ti­ful souls! Tonight at 8:15pm I am delight­ed to be speak­ing live with the won­der­ful Cathryn Mon­ro. A Welling­ton based author and self enquiry facil­i­ta­tor — Cathryn’s book…

Workshop: TRUE Yoga Auckland

By | Workshops | No Comments

Stop. Breathe. Reflect. Con­nect. Why is it so hard to pri­ori­tise self-care as a moth­er? Is it because we think we don’t deserve it? Is it because we’re just too busy jug­gling the dai­ly demands of domes­tic life, work, and moth­er­hood? Per­haps think you will pri­ori­tise your inner life some­time, one-day, tomor­row, lat­er. But when is that? When the kids have grown up and left home? Real self-care is more than a man­i­cure — it’s some­thing that lasts, some­thing that sus­tains you, some­thing that gives you the gift of con­nect­ing to your­self in a way you can take your bet­ter…

Anxiety, Worry, Fear and Overwhelm — Honour Your Self. Sharing Chapter 23 with you

By | Blog | No Comments

How are you going with the school hol­i­days? Jug­gling your kids and oth­er work com­mit­ments — feel­ing guilty that you’ve farmed them out while you sol­dier on — try­ing to squeeze in the qual­i­ty moments you think you should be hav­ing but not feel­ing it? Or per­haps you’ve nailed it, you’ve carved out this time for a road trip, craft­ing activ­i­ties, sand­cas­tles and flow, and you’re wran­gling sib­ling fights and domes­tic tasks like Nan­ny McPhee. For now. We expect so much of our­selves, we want so much for our kids, and some­times those things mount up, and under the pres­sure…

What is My Task in this Mothering Moment?

By | Blog | 2 Comments

That dark shape in the mid­dle of this pic­ture is a nest. And on that nest is a moth­er black­bird. And under that moth­er black­bird was an egg that is now a baby black­bird. We have watched over the last four weeks while the nest and its inhab­i­tants have been thrashed about in the branch­es, storm-tossed by wind, drenched by rain, and pelt­ed by hail. It is amaz­ing that the nest has with­stood the ele­ments and that the egg and chick stayed on board. Through all of the tumult that wee mum has held relent­less­ly to her task. Alfred Adler…
