Yoga Nidra Programme – Deep Rest

Come home to yourself in this body-mind restoration Yoga Nidra where you can experience the technique in person. Yoga Nidra is a guided relaxation that you listen to as you rest in a totally supported posture. This can be lying down or sitting, or reclining. We use lots of cushions, bolsters and blankets to ensure we are fully supported in our posture, so that we can deeply let go at a pace that suits us. As you rest, you will be guided into a relaxation by my voice. Sometimes focusing on the breath, sometimes on the body, sometimes on sensation, sometimes on ...

Overwhelm? 5 steps towards re-balance.

Are you overwhelmed? Are you interested in a FREE ten minute meditation you can listen to, to help you re-connect and gain perpective? Read on... Sometimes we all have 'off' days. Sometimes it lasts longer than that. Something just doesn't feel quite right and we reach a state of overwhelm... our mind doesn't want to stop thinking, and ironically it stops our thoughts from being clear. Energy levels drop and lethargy and procrastination win us over. But we must keep going! It's not as simple as retreating into our shell until we recover... There is work to do, maybe ...

Help baby (and yourself!) to relax with reflexology

I am often asked if I can treat little feet... Mums who have been with me in pregnancy yoga are keen to carry on this nurtured feeling after the birth, for themselves as well as their little ones. So, I have created a four week course for Mummies/ Daddies/ Nannies/ Grandparents to learn how to soothe and comfort their own babies and children through the power of touch, with the magic of reflexology thrown in... "(Ralphie) sleeps better and longer. I am doing the reflexology 3 or 4 times a week. The course was really interesting and enjoyable" S.S., 2015. Over the ...

Pregnant! Now what…?

Pregnancy. A time for many changes physically, mentally and emotionally. Sometimes even spiritually, as you become awestruck about the absolute miracle of life, growing within you. Sometimes good feelings, sometimes not so good. How can I help to support you? As a mother to three children, with three very different births under my belt, I have experienced many different scenarios during pregnancy and labour. From denial to fear, from diabetes to shoulder dystocia, and from shock to euphoria and total empowerment, I believe I have enough experience to listen without ...

Doing yoga

So, you might ask what does 'doing yoga' consist of? What do we actually do within a class? As a beginner, will I be able to 'do it' at all? Perhaps you have been to many yoga classes, or done many home videos. Why is dynamic yoga any different? In dynamic yoga we use repetitive actions to awaken the deep sensitivity within the body; to be open to sensation as it happens and to lengthen and broaden the body, creating space and openness within the bodymind. There shouldn't be any expectations, although flexibility and strength often occur as a natural by-product of this ...

Doula – birth support for you and your family

A birth doula is someone who is employed to support you in your choices during your labour and birth. They can also be employed for a period after the birth (post-natal doula) to help around the house with light duties, look after your newborn while you shower or rest, and make sure you feel supported at this special time. It is especially useful if you have a nervous partner or no partner to attend the birth for whatever reason. Births with a doula present are more likely to be calm and have a relaxed birth, with little or no anxiety, and less interference. A prelimi...
