I am also a meditation teacher, and have been working in the wellness space for over 15 years. Running global meditation retreats, speaking at events and running corporate workplace meditation programs.
Since being a mother, I have also been teaching private 1:1 Vedic meditation courses in Byron, and online. I am so passionate about teaching parents how to meditate and integrate a daily practice into our busy kid filled lives.
1 | Describe your “Mum Uniform” in 3 words?
Active-wear, jeans, dresses
2 | As a mother and meditation teacher I’m sure you’ll have a few great tips for other mummas on how to apply mindfulness to parenting?
As a mum it is non-stop attending to our children’s needs, running a home and for some working as well. It can all get overwhelming pretty quick.
A great tip for getting on top of (losing your sh”t) in the moment, is deep long breaths, focusing on extending the exhale.
However, ideally, we want to not get to that point, this is why is it so valuable to have a daily practice that helps release stress, tension and fatigue so that you don’t react (or loss it) at your little ones.
For me a daily meditation practice is my saviour… I truly feel I am a better mum for it.
3 | What was your most unexpected pregnancy symptom and how did you overcome it?
Feeling that deep inner mother protector feeling arise.
It was an unexplainable instinct to create an environment I would want my baby to grow up within. I made big changes and moved back to Byron Bay, into a cottage on my parents farm and started studying all about gentle & conscious parenting.
4 | What are your top tip/s for getting out the door stress free with a toddler?
5 | One piece of advice you wish you’d been given before you first became a mum?
Ask for help!
I still need to get better at this myself.
Generally, us mothers don’t want to burden others, and feel we can just get it done, and we do! But, at the risk of totally burning out.
(Oh, and if I could id have a cleaner once a week, that would be a massive help).
6 | Do you have any self-care tips that help you feel like a more balanced Mumma?
Looking after your mind, body and soul.
