Women’s Wellness Yoga

welcome home to yourself

Nourishing practices that work with you where you are.  Avoiding techniques and postures that don’t suit certain times of our lives.  Embracing those that do. Empowering and healing.  For all women everywhere.

Yoga designed by women for women.  A practice that supports our natural rhythms.  Permission for rest included with yoga nidra.  Supports menstrual and menopause health, fertility, pre and post pregnancy…and all things woman.

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 are for you too.  Above all, women’s yoga understands womens’ bodies.

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.  She pays attention to each individual student’s needs, and 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)

Meditation

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

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

Simple yet profound techniques and practices you can learn and use in your daily life.

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.   Moreover, it is proven to reduce stress and anxiety and increase energy and concentration.

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

Yoga Nidra – the art of relaxation and healing

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 relaxing, it goes deeper than that.  This is the practice where we really learn how to welcome and greet ourselves exactly as we are . As a result, healing can take place.  Yoga Nidra provides tools for navigating life with a sense of calmness and peace.  In addition, we learn  how to welcome and respond to whatever conditions arise, without the need to ‘fix’ anything.  A regular practice develops 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.  Because a regular practice of Yoga Nidra works on restoring the health of the nervous system and calming down the anxiety response,  an increased sense of calmness and well-being takes place.  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 awareness inwards,  the things that need addressing rise to the surface for acknowledgement or healing.  In addition, we touch the base of inner peace and calmness that is our essential nature.  From here we become adept at  responding to life rather than reacting, often from habit rather than wisdom.   A sense of deep peace is usually experienced at the end of a session.

One to one sessions last an hour – investment £55
