From Treelance to You | Happy Mother's Day

Hey there Yogis!

For our ongoing celebration of Mother's Day, let us remember the different forms of mothering and motherhood

Mother is definitely not limited to one form. Mothering can be a lot of things: from babysitting other women’s kids, mentoring children in the neighborhood or baking cookies for them; to offering a nonjudgemental ear for nieces and nephews, devoting one's life to teaching, or even chosing to be a pet mom and loving unconditionally a fur baby! 

We should not be closed-minded when it comes to motherhood. Today, more than ever, we invite you to acknowledge how rich, diverse, and abundant motherhood can be.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you!

I. "i will have to wait till i'm a mother”, by Rupi Kaur

“i struggle so deeply
to understand
how someone can
pour their entire soul
blood and energy
into someone
without wanting
anything in

II. Happy Baby Pose: Kurmasana

Happy Baby Pose is a movement we see babies do quite naturally when they discover their feet and practicing it can relieve stress while inviting feelings of joy and playfulness

Happy Baby Pose awakens your inner child and is an instant mood booster! It melts away nervous energy, relieves stress, and transforms your busy mind to that of a young, carefree infant. It zaps tension and reinvigorates your mind, body, and soul.

Ananda Balasana is also a great stretch for the inner thighs, inner groins, hips, hamstrings—even the shoulders and chest are involved. It offers freedom in the back muscles, which is great after doing other poses, especially backbends and twists. When you take Happy Baby, the sacrum broadens. It gently stretches the inner groins and the back spine. It also calms the brain and helps relieve stress and fatigue.

III. Still Born | Book

Still born is a profound novel about motherhood, friendship, and the power of community from Guadalupe Nettel, one of the leading lights in contemporary Latin American literature. 

Still Born is the story of two friends who make diametrically opposite choices in life. Alina and Laura are independent and career-driven women in their mid-thirties, neither of whom have ever built their future around the prospect of a family. Laura has taken the drastic decision to be sterilised, but as time goes by Alina becomes drawn to the idea of becoming a mother. When Alina’s daughter survives childbirth – after a diagnosis that predicted the opposite – and Laura becomes attached to her neighbour’s son, both women are forced to reckon with the complexity of their emotions.

With her signature candour and insight, Nettel explores maternal ambivalence with a surgeon’s touch, carefully dissecting the contradictions that make up the lived experiences of women.


We'll get back to you shortly Yogis!
