16 years ago I did my first yoga class with Trish Brown. It was a saving grace for me at the time as I found myself in a new city with few friends, a toddler & new born baby and then suddenly.... a single mother. My life had been turned upside down... I guess you could say "I had hit rock bottom"... but week after week, one class after another, I found a new strength coming through me. I decided that one class a week wasn't quite enough and so started the Dru Yoga Teacher Training. Before long I found a new me shining through!
It was while on this course I first heard the story of the musk deer which really struck a chord in my heart. Over the years I've shared this story with many children in my yoga classes and now it's in a book for you to share with your children and their children...and their children.
My dear teacher and friend, Patricia Brown, will be opening the launch this coming Friday who will no doubt share her insightful vision and some words of wisdom. The delightful illustrator, Yuti McLean, will be travelling down from her home in Northern NSW for the launch and my inspirational friend and talented book designer, Mouli, will also be present.
I would deerly love you to come to help me celebrate the birth of Deer-lightful into the world and to help Deer take His first steps forward. There will be an opportunity to experience the story too so bring any young ones in your life along!
Light refreshments available during signings of the book.

I'm very excited to be writing my first post ever, and in it I'd like to give you a taste of the fun, joy and playfulness that teaching yoga to young ones can bring. Teaching children and teens is not only something that is really worthwhile for them, but is therapeutic for us. Imagine a life where you can get up in the morning knowing that the day is going to bring you opportunities to do yoga, to sing and dance, to play games, to connect, to create, to laugh, to play, to relax... to let the inner child free. What a way to make a living!
