As we all know, being a Mum isn’t easy, we are excited to bring you a 3-part series of interviews with our @thecleanaddicts Ambassadors who had a baby last year.
We hope that through these stories, they will give you strength and encouragement if you’re going to be a Mum or am already one!
In this part 2/3 feature, we catch up with Yoga instructor, @roxannegan_ on her thoughts on Motherhood after having her daughter Mila, body image advice (which I personally look up to her for). Plus what she's up to right now with her new role in the wellness industry!
What is something you learned that you wish someone had told you?
how do you BALANCE family time & work with a baby?

"I know it’s easy to say but really, be kind to yourself. It takes 9 months to make a baby, it’s gonna take time for your body to recover.
what are 3 tips for moms who struggle with negative postpartum body image?1. I know it’s easy to say but really, be kind to yourself. It takes 9 months to make a baby, it’s gonna take time for your body to recover.
How has your yoga journey evolved after being a mum?
I am still teaching yoga but just a couple of classes a week because my priority now is spending as much time with Mila as I can. In short, my main responsibility and focus is still being a mom!
In terms of my practice, it’s mainly stretching and breathing exercises to help me relax and de-stress.
WHAT ARE YOU UP TO RIGHT NOW? I HEARD THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN UP A NEW ROLE. CONGRATS!
Thank you! I have even going with the flow for the past 2 years, but now that Mila is a little older it’s great to set new goals. I just embarked on my new role as the Yoga Program Manager of Como Shambhala (Sg) so that’s pretty exciting for me.
I get to teach, work with an amazing team of instructors to continue sharing the benefits of Yoga!
