In our current world, we have been undervaluing what it means to be a woman, and a mother. But in many ancient traditions and teachings, the mother is celebrated and revered for her power to create and sustain life. In my search for a better understanding of who I was becoming, and why I struggled so much to value this current season of my life, Kundalini yoga has been one of those ancient teachings that has guided me to a new understanding.

Alexandra Di Cecco has been a Kundalini yoga teacher since before she was a mama. She has been teaching and guiding women through pregnancy, birth and beyond for nearly 15 years, and her dedication to inspiring women to live a more conscious and grace-filled life is truly contagious. Just listen to the way she talks about what it means to be a mother – it will change how you feel forever.

In this episode, I spoke to Alexandra about the kundalini teachings, but also about how we can live with less anger and more grace, how we can switch off the ‘superwoman addiction’, and what conscious parenting really is.
