After years of yoga practice, a healthy and an idyllic island pregnancy, she was shocked when her post-partum experience and recovery completely transformed her relationship to her yoga practice and womanhood in general. Completely torn and rearranged and told she needed “a total pelvic floor reconstruction”, she became determined to find the wisdom that would eventually allow her to heal herself.

Along the way, she was immersed herself in the old ways and used herself as a laboratory. Her biggest revelations came through the work of Sexological Bodywork and Somatic Experiencing.

She is the creator of MagaMama.com– a virtual community and interactive guide for post-partum moms who want to heal their bodies, reawaken their libido, strengthen their relationships and mine the full experience of motherhood. kajyoga.com
