I'm so excited today to share this giveaway with you all and talk a little bit about my dear friend, Katie. She has been my boss since I started working at the studio, my teacher since she led my teacher training and my friend since we've had our unofficial two person sewing club. Katie constantly inspires me with her wisdom, playfulness, dedication to her family and the way she manages to live a yogic life in a busy city while being a business owner, freelance journalist, author, yoga teacher and mother to two small children!
I was delighted when she asked me to help her out with her latest book, 'The Yoga of Birth,' and I took over the job of editing and now helping her get it out there in the big, wide world. I've read it a couple of times now, and it is a truly wonderful book. I don't even have kids yet and yet I've found so many bits and pieces in this book that have inspired me and made me think about what I want my own pregnancy, labour and early days of parenting to look like.
This is not a yoga asana (poses) book; rather, it details how the practices of yoga and ayurveda can help women throughout conception, pregnancy, birth and all the way through to toddlerhood. Even if you're not into yoga, I'm sure you'll learn something from this book.
The book is available to buy on lulu, and you can find more info about upcoming events here. The book website isn't live yet, but it will be soon and you can find it here.
Finally, the official book launch is tomorrow at Jivamukti Yoga Sydney at 10 am. It's a family friendly event with gifts galore, games, snacks, and copies of the book will only be $15! Katie will, of course, be there signing books and talking a bit about The Yoga of Birth.
To enter to win a copy of the book, just leave a comment on this post. I'll leave comments open for 1 week. Good luck to you all!
