Mig McMillan
Artist, Teacher, Hilarious Human
Go Aqua. Trying to live a completely green lifestyle with teenagers may work for some – but we were in real danger of bloodshed and estrangement. Going aqua means that we are as green as we can be in the household at the same time allowing our heathen offspring to dabble in evil consumerism to the degree that keeps them socially viable and us out of jail.

Mig is small and green – but not a frog. Although she might possibly rather eat flies than cook. She has four children and a husband is on sabbatical to Auckland (so really is still a Taurangian – she has that house with a mural-ed fence and freedom dwelling flowers in Cherrywood). Mig lives in the smallest house in Forrest Hill – a place of very few trees.

Lucy Aitkenread
Author, Mother, Activist

You should all know about the phenomenon that is Lucy aka Lulastic & The Hippyshakes. Her blog has a silly fabulous amount of thousands subscribed, as does her YouTube Channel. Blog = here. Youtube channel = here.

How can we raise daughters that love their bodies in the face of toxic messages from the beauty industry? Will my body lotion stop me getting pregnant? Can women be interested in beauty and still love themselves? Should we shave our body hair?

We’ll be discussing these questions and many more in a workshop with Lucy Aitkenread, columnist for Cosmopolitan and author of Freedom Face. By the end of it you may just be ready to shake off some of the shackles of a beauty industry based in toxic ingredients and toxic self-hate.

Lucy Aitkenread graduated from the London School of Economics in 2008 with an Msc in Social Policy. She went on to work for a global NGO as a climate change campaigner, helping community activists to organise effectively.

After her second child was born, Lucy’s love of social and environmental justice took a turn towards the impact our lifestyles have on the earth’s resources, and the different ways that raising children can promote or impede a fairer world.

Three years ago Lucy and her family moved from their brick house in South London to an off grid yurt in a forest in New Zealand, where they try and live in deep connection with nature. Lucy has written two bestselling books on living without shampoo and body products and wants to enable women to shrug off the toxicity, both in ingredients and self-hating messages, of the beauty industry. Through her website and youtube channel Lucy hopes to inspire people to live in peaceful relationship with the children in their life and the earth they tread upon.

Convinced?
Maybe the allure of Food Trucks, Community Gardens, walkway to the beach, Live Music and plenty of space for children to explore may put a smile on your dial?

There’s only one way to find out…

Book your ticket, come see, listen, experience the magic of Aoteaora’s most handmade and whole-hearted little YOGA festival 15-17 September 2017.

PS: We fibbed. Mig isn’t really local anymore, even though we want her to be. We all like a little magic.
