Spilt Milk Yoga Spring Retreat @ Riverslea Retreat Centre, Otaki
Nov 10 @ 4:00 pm – Nov 12 @ 12:00 pm
Spilt Milk Yoga Spring Retreat @ Riverslea Retreat Centre, Otaki | Hautere | Wellington | New Zealand

A con­tem­pla­tive and dynam­ic week­end of guid­ed self-inquiry or mothers, led by Cathryn Mon­ro, sup­port­ed by restora­tive yoga led by Kirstie Cleary.

This is time for you. Focused on you. Be guid­ed skill­ful­ly through self-inquiry process­es. Be fed won­der­ful nour­ish­ing food. Sleep. Be held in deeply restora­tive yoga prac­tices. Awake to bird­song. Meet fellow-travelers in a beau­ti­ful place. Con­nect to your own wis­dom, joy and pur­pose through embrac­ing your path as a moth­er. Ready your­self for the next step, enliv­ened in the new growth of spring!

Many people think yoga is just yoga pos­es (Asana), but Spilt Milk Yoga focus­es on self-knowledge (Dhyana) the “yoga on the inside” devel­op­ing our inner bal­ance, flex­i­bil­i­ty, strength and mind­ful­ness. I bring my train­ing to that process and guide moth­ers in this impor­tant work we do, approach­ing moth­er­hood as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to come to know our­selves, rais­ing our­selves while we raise our chil­dren, embrac­ing moth­er­hood as a path know­ing our edges rather than resist­ing or avoid­ing the challenges.

In the room you’d see me warm­ing par­tic­i­pants up to their pur­pose, guid­ing con­tem­pla­tion and jour­nal­ing to focus inten­tion. The work is tai­lored so that each moth­er can ori­ent to a moment she wants to know more about, or to cul­ti­vate a new response to. There is guid­ed shar­ing and con­nec­tions are made and then I inter­view some­one who wants to learn more about her­self and her sit­u­a­tion. If it was you, we’d chat, we’d fig­ure out our pur­pose, we’d get well con­nect­ed up and then I’d direct you in an enact­ment lay­ing out this unique sit­u­a­tion. We’d lay out what’s going on out­side and inside and the ques­tion or inten­tion you are hold­ing. When you see and feel your inner world in this way it is more pos­si­ble to build a con­ver­sa­tion with your­self about your deep­er moti­va­tions, world-view, and pat­terns. When you intro­duce your updat­ed, con­scious inten­tion, or a new idea, to your exist­ing struc­ture you have an oppor­tu­ni­ty to prac­tice your aspi­ra­tion in this live moment. This enables you to lit­er­al­ly prac­tice this new approach, to feel it in your core, to embody the expe­ri­ence as your own prac­tice. The oth­er group mem­bers are involved in this work and the con­ver­sa­tion and shar­ing that come from it are rich, true and pro­found. The work is trans­for­ma­tion­al, and relates to the spe­cif­ic devel­op­ment of the par­tic­i­pant, and the group.

SPRING RETREAT SPECIAL OFFER: Sign up for the Spilt Milk Yoga Spring Retreat and go in the draw to win prizes of
– a 1hr mas­sage with Kirstie Cleary
– an audio­book copy of Spilt Milk Yoga – A Guid­ed Self-Inquiry to Find­ing Your Own Wis­dom, Joy, and Pur­pose Through Moth­er­hood. Great for in the car, or in your ears when you’re doing house work, or any time you are hands busy/ mind free.

Cathryn says; Spilt Milk Yoga is the work of soft­en­ing into our human love and learn­ing, the work of com­ing to know our­selves, devel­op­ing aware­ness, choice and flex­i­bil­i­ty, and using all the chal­lenges of con­tem­po­rary moth­er­hood as fuel for that process. The Spilt Milk Yoga Retreat is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to immerse your­self, take time to reflect and con­nect to self, and be guid­ed in find­ing prac­tices that will grow your wis­dom, joy and pur­pose in your every-day moth­er­ing life, not lat­er some day, when the kids have left home and the house final­ly stays tidy for longer than 5 min­utes. It’s about hav­ing that con­nec­tion to your­self and oth­ers now, for life.

Kirstie says; I’ll be offer­ing nour­ish­ing ways to reju­ve­nate our bod­ies, minds, and spir­it. Ways to keep moth­ers juicy and joy­ful. Ways to help us stay con­nect­ed to the essence of who we were before we became moth­ers, so that we can cel­e­brate the full­ness of who we are now as we nur­ture our fam­i­lies. Reju­ve­na­tion is an art that dials up your deli­cious­ness. It feels good. And if we feel good, we are more like­ly to be cre­ative, play­ful, pas­sion­ate moth­ers to our beau­ti­ful chil­dren.
