Why You Should Stop Measuring Your Diastasis. Or Anything Else For that Matter.

Diastasis-Recti | MuTu System

Yoga can lay claim to an awful lot, simply by virtue of its longevity - there are many claims + theories which I am woefully unqualified to weigh in on, regarding 'How … [Read more...]

Why Sometimes It Feels Sucky Before It Feels Good

Dr Seuss quote

We women rely on our intuition, our instincts, a lot. They serve us well + are almost always the very best signals we have to guide us when to Go + when to Stop.

Mama Judging. Don’t Go There.

You know that Mom? The Mom at the school gate, or in the mall with her toddler, who looks so damn together? Her hair is brushed, her expression gives nothing away, she's wearing clothes that weren't made for a pregnant woman, or a man, + her child is gumming an apple or an avocado. Yes that one.
