12 Things I Learned in My First 12 Months of Motherhood

It's been 12 months since my life changed forever... But I still remember the day like it was yesterday. After seventeen hours of labor with one final push I felt a release as my daughter came into the world. They handed her to me and with shaky hands I kissed her all over her little body. She was my sun, my moon, my stars and I felt a new kind of love spark in my…

The Yoga Expo – A Place For Yogis and Yoga Teachers

A few years ago I was the quintessential couch potato.  Weekends were spent on Netflix marathons and various bowls of salty snacks. The words 'exercise,' 'yoga' or 'meditation' were not even in my vocabulary. Back in those days I would've never imagined that one day I would be attending The Yoga Expo in Fort Lauderdale, not just as a student but as a yoga teacher.

Why I Won’t Let Endometriosis Ruin My Life

 I'm sitting on a birthing ball looking down at my ever-expanding belly. A kick, then another reminds me of the beautiful baby growing inside. At seven months it's still hard to wrap my mind around it. I'm really pregnant.  When I look back on the journey of how I got here, it was as if I had to run a marathon with no end in sight.

Why I’ve Been a Hermit for Months

You may have noticed less emails, less blog posts, less activity on Sookton's Space. My friends haven't seen me in months. I've been popping up hosting workshops and events, and then quickly retreating to my home. The truth is, I have been spending a lot of time alone, reflecting, and writing. In the past I would have called myself "selfish" for this kind of behavior. I would have said, "Suki, people want to see you. You…
