Supporting body, mind and soul during menstruation, fertility, postnatal, menopause and beyond.

Women’s Wellness Yoga – Coming Home to Yourself 

Meeting you where you are…

A softer approach to allow for the physical and emotional body to experience a deep healing and letting go.  Connecting with ourselves, our femininity and Mother Earth, feeling our connection with her and with ourselves.  This is a sublime practice that nourishes and nurtures, harmonising with our natural rhythms.  Permission for rest included with yoga nidra.  For all women, everywhere.  Supports menstrual and menopause health, fertility, pre and post pregnancy…and all things woman.

During certain times, a softer practice is what is called for, and yoga specific for women meets us where we are at.  Women’s wellness yoga was developed by women for women – is exactly what we need!

I have attended Nalini’s Women’s Yoga class and find it very relaxing and nurturing. Nalini’s focus on the feminine aspects of yoga practice is refreshing and affirming. I really enjoy the slow movements, breathing, and the guided relaxation with yoga nidra is particularly special. Nalini gives loving guidance with her gentle voice. She pays attention to each individual student’s needs. She introduces us to sacred practices to connect us with the Divine. Nalini also plays harmonium, has a beautiful singing voice, and I love to join in when she leads kirtan/chanting.  (Julie Gibson, Yoga Teacher)

If you have a coil, are trying to get pregnant, have your period, are postnatal, in menopause, have a prolapse…. these practices will support you and help you avoid some of the stronger postures that aren’t beneficial for you at this time. If you are tired, stressed, aching or in overwhelm – these practices will support you too.  Women’s yoga understands womens’ bodies.

Meditation

There is no aspect of life that cannot be supported and improved by meditation.

Supporting you with relationships, business, health, stress, anxiety and pain management as well as personal growth.

Simple yet profound techniques and practices you can learn and use in your daily life independently, anytime, anyplace, anywhere!

For anyone who feels that stress and anxiety are an unavoidable fact of modern life, meditation reminds us that within each one of us is an inner core of peace that we can learn to access at will.  This ancient practice is becoming part of our culture and is widely recommended by doctors, business managers, schools and hospitals.  This is because it offers positive and life-enhancing results on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Meditation leads us to the rediscovery of our innate nature of peace and equanimity.

“ This ancient technique, practiced by many spiritual paths, has something to teach us, whether we are spiritually inclined or not.  Regular practice benefits health and well-being and increases energy levels and brain power. Moreover, it is proven to reduce stress and anxiety”.

It doesn’t remove difficult times but it does provide a way to get through them with integrity and to see the bigger picture.”

Yoga Nidra – the sublime art of relaxation and restoration

Yoga Nidra is a deeply restorative and integrative practice that takes us into the present moment which is the only moment we have.  And while it may look like you are just lying down and deeply relaxing, it goes deeper than that.  This is the practice where we really learn how to welcome and greet ourselves exactly as we are and can result in deep healing.  Yoga Nidra provides tools for navigating life with a sense of calmness and peace, learning how to welcome and respond to whatever conditions arise, without the need to ‘fix’ anything.  Through regular practice, we learn to live with a sense of ease that infiltrates into all areas of our lives.

Yoga Nidra as a tool for healing

Shock, trauma, pain, stress and  anxiety impact the health of the nervous system and can lock us into a state of constant hyper-arousal that drains us of energy and enthusiasm.  Regular practice of Yoga Nidra works on restoring the health of the nervous system and calming down the anxiety response, resulting in an increased sense of calmness and well-being.  Yoga Nidra is also recognised for effective pain management and sleep disturbance.

One to One Sessions of Yoga Nidra

These sessions are a wonderful opportunity to work together, from a quiet space.  By allowing quietness and taking our awareness inwards, whatever needs our attention can naturally surface and be welcomed in.  We learn the technique of allowing things to be as they are, not needing to fix or change anything, and how to step into being the witnessing presence of our lives.  We become present to what life has to tell us, and touch the base of inner peace and calmness that is our essential nature.  During a session, we work with the breath, meditative self-inquiry and through the wisdom of the body.  A sense of deep peace is usually experienced at the end of a session.

One to one sessions last an hour and cost £55.  In person or via Skype.

Please contact Nalini for further details.  Teaching privately for businesses and one to ones.
