Sleep is essential: it restores and replenishes us on every level. Yet sleep can be elusive at any stage of our life cycle, and issues with it often show up around the transition of menopause. Not being able to sleep was certainly a wake-up call for me.

And while I have shelves of books about sleep and overcoming insomnia written by experts, it was a holistic approach using the Koshas that healed my insomnia

Transformational tales

Heartfelt. Margot’s teachings feel like they come straight from her heart to her students. Having said that, Margot is very knowledgeable and it is obvious that she must put a lot of time and preparation into to each of her classes, workshops and retreats.

Margot’s always structures her classes so we get the most out of them. Margot tailors her sessions to not only the yoga poses, but with our current season or lunar phase in mind. Margot explains how these influences show up in our lives and affect our minds and bodies. This is beneficial to me because it helps me understand the benefits of each pose and the effects it has on my body and wellbeing.

I always get the most out of my classes with Margot and feel like I must get special attention. But at the end of class I see others go up to Margot to praise and thank her. I’m never lacking and leave each class with an “oh, I needed that.”


The thing that shines through all of these settings is the depth of her knowledge and the care she puts into sharing it. Everything Margot does as a teacher is informed by her deep understanding of anatomy and physiology alongside yoga philosophy and practices. Her great skill is in weaving all of her knowledge together so that every choice she makes as a teacher and every cue she gives her students is considered and informed. This level of care and insight is rare.

Margot is never heavy-handed in sharing her wisdom. Instead, she offers clear and meaningful explanations for the practices she teaches, allowing her students to learn about the systems and processes of their bodies and the benefits that yoga brings them. And she does all of this with grace and humour and humility, which means that the learning is both effortless and enjoyable.


Thank you, Margot, for a profoundly beautiful day. It was an honour and a privledge to sit with a wonderful group of women and be part of something so beautiful; to hear the voices and stories of others and to be part of a such an important shared experience. I love the Goddess Circle.

Thank you for your wisdom, courage, leadership and your voice; for taking the plunge and initiating something so vital for women.

From one ‘wild woman’ to another, my deepest gratitude.
