After 6 weeks of holidays I packed lunch boxes and shipped 3 kids off to school and kindergarten. The house is quiet and I'm starting to gather my thoughts for the year to come.
I feel that this year I will take some big steps diving deeper into my path as a yoga teacher, but also as a creative. In saying that I have to remind myself that my primary role in life is still being a MOM. Yes in some ways I'm just a mom.... well that's what I used to say but over the years I realised that the word 'just' does not describe this roll or do it any justice.
I am a MOM, I am a Yogi and together I'm a Yoga Mom. I've learned that the best way for me to feel whole is to create a synergy between all areas of my life. I now look at everything I do as a form of practice. Asana is such a small component on the path of a Yogi. Its the quality of relationships that really reflects how far we've come along this path.
For those of you who follow me on Instagram you know that I love to play around with my kids. I do this because it keeps them involved in what I'm doing, because it opens their eyes to the idea of Yoga not being only pose and because it shows you my friends a side of me ( the playful silly mom) I wish to share.
I rarely plan these shoots, I usually get inspired by something I see, like a superman cape and quickly grab the camera to capture the moment. kids are kids and they definitely don't perform on request so we usually end up capturing something we had'nt planned.
I've shared with you below a series of photos captured together, a little behind the scenes. Welcome to my world of creative play.
XX, Yoga Mom.
