Meet Caroline of Better Me Yoga …and Sydney Mum

“When the gardener plants an apple seed, does he expect the apples to appear at once? Of course not. The gardener waters the seed, watches it each day, and feels happy seeing the growth. Treat the body in the same way. We water our asana and pranayama with love and joy seeing the small progress. While we know what our goal is, we do not focus on enlightenment. We know that when our practice is ripe, illumination comes.”  ~...

Moody, powerful, dramatic and winning

“As a long time amateur photographer, I’ve always loved experimenting with black and white photos. I find them moody, powerful and dramatic. I find design, photography, drawing, writing and other artistic pursuits of mine all feed into my creativity. They all help sharpen my ‘eye’ and I’m constantly refining and improving my design skills as a result. Anyway, a friend saw some of my pix on my private FB...

For the love of dance

“I started my dance studio after returning from the Commonwealth Games as a member of the swim team in 1986. I had given up school in year 11 due to being away on tour for 81 days that year so when I came back I pretty much had nothing, except dance. My one condition as an elite swimmer was that I was to be able to continue with dancing, which my coach enabled, and as a result I came home a qualified dance teacher. So it fell into...

How two mums run a successful Speech and Occupational Therapy practice for kids

Every now and again when the kids have driven me to breaking point I wonder what it is like for women whose everyday profession is helping kids to then switch into ‘mum mode’ and return to their own families. Julia Orsini, a Speech and Language therapist, and Kaya Lyons, an Occupational therapist, are two local mums and business owners doing just that. Together they run Kids Spot and Active OT 4 Kids in Sydney’s East...

Mums supporting Mums

Saturday was Human Rights Day, although I was enjoying the day among friends my thoughts did drift to those in this life who are really doing it tough. Tough because they are not choosing to be persecuted or discriminated against but that it is being imposed on them – the rights of a refugee or migrant, a person with disabilities, a LGBT person, a woman, a child, indigenous Peoples, a minority group, or anyone else at risk of...

Sydney Mum continues talking education

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the new reforms hitting the HSC and NAPLAN from 2017 and my thoughts how it will impact our family and my role as a mum. Since I have come across some interesting articles that talk about the importance of early intervention, in particular the possibility of NSW schools implementing a phonics test at the end of year 1. It would seem that Australian government schools could be taking a page out of...

Does Social Media make us better people?

Oh My Gosh… What an amazing response I have had from my network of family and friends about my first ever blog posted a couple of weeks ago. So many kind words – words of encouragement, love, praise and well wishes – yet it’s left me with conflicting emotions. Immediate and lingering is an overwhelming sense of gratitude however there is also a sense of feeling exposed in that special way only the online world can,...
