Shakti Yoga Circles

 

Shakti Yoga is a practice inspired by the teachings of Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, my teacher and mentor and author of the women's yoga bible, Yoni Shakti.

Specifically designed to support women's bodies, Shakti Yoga offers some glorious and delicious practices accessible to all women that, although seeming quite gentle, are very powerful indeed: it's a creative and nurturing blend of flowing movement, breathwork, yoga nidra, mudras and sacred chants.

This practice deeply honours the cyclical nature of women and is therefore a great support for all women's inner seasons: menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, post natal time, perimenopause and menopause.

By (re)connecting and honouring our feminine rhythms we can also access new and more profound levels of spiritual connection within and a stronger connection with our creative centre, our Shakti, and this can have a profound echo in all aspects of our lives.

In my Shakti ​Yoga circles I aim to always create a nurturing and safe space where all women can feel held, heard and honoured for who they are, their perfect and beautiful selves - and I use the circle as a powerful container to help me facilitate individual and collective transformation and healing (my own included!)

Currently running as Monthly Women's Yoga and Self-Care Circles: please click here for more info and bookings

And I would love to hold a special Shakti Circle for you and your sisters! Please email me to find out more and to book

6 weeks Shakti Yoga course - In Tune with the Moon

(Wildgoose Space, 228 Mina Road, BS2 9YP)

After the success of the first two In Tune with the Moon Shakti Yoga circles (the first one started on the first new moon of this year), I am excited to offer another circle of Moon Sisters before the summer holidays. 
This course continues the work started in January this year and will evolve in its own organic way over the six weeks according to the phases of the moon, the phases of our inner cycles and the deep needs of our souls. 
Each session will include grounding chanting and yoga nidra to begin with, an opening sharing circle followed by nurturing yoga and a final relaxation and closing circle. If you have never expereinced a women's circle before, this is true medicine for the soul! And if you have already been gifted with the experience, you know that you are in for a treat! As when women get together, the magic happens.
This is a creative and nurturing space for all women (pregnant and postnatal included), it's a safe and sacred space and so it's a closed circle.
Spaces are limited.
Investment: £60 paid in advance (please email me for more details). NO drop in available, sorry. 


Sunday 8th April, 10am - 12noon
