Rest and Restore – Meditation and Yoga  Nidra Workshop

✨ Sunday 14th December 3pm – 5pm ✨

Linear Fitness, Mill House, Borde Hill Lane, Haywards Heath

This magical time of year offers us the possibility to follow Mamma Nature’s superb wisdom and slooooow right down and turn inwards a little. Taking time for ourselves, to meditate, reflect and enter deep relaxation with yoga nidra …is a balm to body, mind and spirit.
Connecting with our hearts and souls and easing into being instead of doing – just what’s needed at this busy time of year.

✨Workshop includes:
​ – Gorgeously relaxing Yoga Nidra
​- Meditation lesson and practice
​- A period of reflection and journaling
​- Tea and mince pies of course!

Ease into a sublime afternoon of deeply nourishing practices and melt into a state of deep rest and rejuvenation – full permission given!
We do too much and when we don’t take time to rest and restore, we diminish our energy, creativity and mind power. We often run on low batteries and continue anyway, believing we need to keep going to get everything done. The good news is that taking periods of deep rest and relaxation actually make us much more productive, creative and happy! Yayy! So come along and be good to yourself and have a well-needed boost to your energy levels, relax your nervous system and let it all go… go on, you know you want to!

Workshops 2020

New Year – New Beginnings – Women’s Workshops

Dance of Awareness – Yoga Nidra – Feminine Essence – Ritual

Sunday 5th January – 1pm – 4pm Yoga Ananda Holistic Centre, Reigate

Sunday 19th January 10.30 – 13.30 Handcross Parish Hall near Horsham

Burn away the dross

Expressing our aspirations for the New Year through dance and gentle yoga. Connecting with our heart energy, the earth, the elements, the chakras and the world around us…

Visioning and dreaming into our heartfelt intentions through journaling, candles, flowers…relaxing into a deliciously nourishing session of Yoga Nidra and closing with a life-affirming ritual to light up our year. Ritual is a way of taking a pause on our life path to see more clearly where we are at and where we are heading..and to let go of what no longer serves. We will work with fire to burn away what needs to go to make space for the new to enter.

Moon is waning, the perfect time for letting go of what no longer serves as we move into New Beginnings.


Gently honouring our femininity through dance, yoga and ritual, feeling our connection with ourselves, each other and the nourishing Divine Mother energy of our earth. Precious time-out for us to rest, relax and restore.

Herbs and Nature Workshop for Kids

Thursday 23rd July – 10.30am – 1.30pm

Having worked with kids on these workshops, it’s always a joy to watch how they light up when immersed in nature, and start to learn the wonder of healing plants.  Armed with some scissors, glue and a big piece of card, they will make a collage of herbs and plants and learn loads of stuff that gets them really inspired!

We will get stuck into making a couple of products that they can proudly bring home to share with you, and maybe they will teach you a thing or two too!

I ran these whilst living in Italy with great success and am delighted to start offering them this year at Prairies.

Practical Magic –  Herbs and Aromatherapy for Facial Skincare

Wednesday 9th September – 10.30am – 1.30pm

All the workshops have a different theme this year and can be done as part of a continuing course, or individually too. 

In this workshop, we will be really focussing on facial products and skincare and you will go home with some nourishing, natural products and the know-how to continue making your own at home. Aromatherapy and vegetable oils have everything we need for an excellent facial skincare routine and are kind to your skin and to the earth.  You don’t need to spend a fortune on products that claim to be natural, many of which have a lot of unnatural, nasty ingredients in them.

There will be time for a walking meditation in the gorgeous gardens, and sharing of how simple it is to bring meditation into our lives, however busy we are.

“I have participated on a variety of Nalini’s workshops and courses and loved them all! I could go as far as saying they have transformed my outlook on life: The herbal workshops have reconnected me to nature and opened my eyes to the chemicals in commercial products; her yoga and nidra have been the tonic to a fast paced life.  However, Nalini has been much more then a teacher- I would definitely describe her as a life coach for women’s wellness! Thank you Nalini- look forward to another workshop”! (Vicki Fitzpatrick)atri
