Yoga Ananda Holistic Centre, Reigate, Surrey

Dedicated to women’s bodies and rhythms, space to unwind, relax and let go. Working in harmony with our natural rhythms, and adopting postures and movements that nourish where we are at, in our cycle, or in our lives.

Gentle yoga to unwind the body and mind, meditative moments to take the energy inwards, some journalling and reflection…and a gorgeously relaxing session of Yoga Nidra to ease out tension and leave you feeling great!

For women, a softer approach at certain times of our lives, including during menstruation, menopause and pre and post pregnancy, these nourishing practices exactly what our bodies and minds need.

Practical Magic – Summer Solstice Herb Workshop

Sunday 21st June 10.30 – 2pm Prairie Garden

Sussex Prairies, Morland Farm, Henfield

Four workshops this year, each with a different theme – can be done as a course or individually.

On these inspirational workshops, Nalini will guide you on a morning of creativity, nature and healing and teach you some ‘Practical Magic’ to take home with you. From gathering herbs and making products, to meditative moments and peacefulness, these workshops will appeal to both the practical and the mystical – open to everyone who would love to know more about healing herbs, wild plants, skincare, aromatherapy and natural remedies.

Summer is at its height now and days are long and languid.  Nature is at her best and it’s a great time to get stuck into herbs for summer first aid, aromatherapy to cool things down and make some great remedies.  We will focus on cooling body lotions, protective lip balms and summer facial products.

It’s summer solstice – so a little bit of magic included to mark the longest day of the year.

Herbs & 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.

Ananda Christmas Meditation, Chanting & Satsang

Sunday 13th December, 10am – 1pm Reigate – click here for details.

“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, teacher)
