I am a writer, Yoga teacher, breastfeeding counselor, home educator and mother of three children. Although I used to be a refugee lawyer, my days of carrying an attache case are over and I now wear leggings to work– now I teach Yoga classes that fit around my family.

I have been teaching mixed ability Yoga classes for almost 10 years in my local area.  I also teach groups of mothers, along with their children, and I run specialist workshops for groups such as athletes.  I have a passion for making Yoga a part of daily life and I try to bring this into my teaching, giving students tools they can take away with them and into their own lives.  I am a recreational runner, a keen hillwalker, gardener and cook.

My writing has been published in The Green Parent Magazine, OM Yoga and Lifestyle, Stealing Time Magazine and The Journal of Refugee Studies. I am also Contributing Editor for LLL’s Breastfeeding Today and Breastfeeding Matters (both member publications), and my work has been published in New Beginnings and Feedback. I have also contributed to Musings on Mothering, an anthology published by Mothers Milk Books. I formerly blogged for Mothering.com and now contribute to Home School Life Magazine’s blog.

    Thank you so much for your blog (and Facebook page which I have just ‘liked’ so hopefully will keep up with things that way a bit!). I am just struggling with lots of parenting questions exactly like the ones you discuss – and broadly the feeling that our way of life in this society does not support parenting choices which really work for the children, and how to work around this – so I am delighted to read your ideas and thoughts on a range of issues, and I will continue to work (also imperceptibly, but a way behind you on the road I think!) towards achieving a more harmonious life for our whole family. Thank you – your blog is so much appreciated 🙂 Emilie x
