So, during my teaching gig at Mysore Yoga Copenhagen last autumn, I met and befriended Tanya Lee Markul, co-founder and editor of Rebelle Society. It turns out that we have a lot in common: both American expats living in Scandinavia, both first-time mothers of little lads, both artsy, creative yoginis…

As a fan of Rebelle Society, when Tanya asked if I was interested in writing for them, I was intrigued! Tanya also very graciously gave me some pointers on how to expand my writing style to fit the Rebelle audience. So here it is: my attempt at writing my birth story more creatively… expressively…rebelliously!

While you’re at it, check out Tanya’s website and get your copy of The Best of Rebelle Society). US-based readers can also check out her article on self-acceptance and love (go Girl!) for Mantra: Yoga and Health. It has Erykah Badu on the cover…what’s not to like?!

Tanya dear, I thank you! Here’s to more ‘creatively maladjusted’ #rebelle #rebellesociety #MamaMagic contributions together.

  1. Hi, just discovered your blog, as a fellow ashtangi! Interesting reads 🙂 It would be interesting to read your views on brahmacharya and sex as both a new mum and ashtangi. All the best!

    1. Hi there,
      Thanks for stopping by! You ask a big question! I find Pattabhi Jois’s book Yoga Mala has a good definition of brahmacharya. I approach my ashtanga mummyhood in relation to these specific topics starting from that book. Hope this helps. All the best to you and please keep reading and subscribe!

Have your say
