About The Event
Full Moon Fierce Free Flow & Yoga Nidra ONLINE
Tuesday 2nd June 2020 5-6:30pm
Zoom online (link sent on booking)
An invitation to stay connected to the seasons and cycles of our bodies and nature through movement and rest amidst all of the uncertainty and change.
An energising, celebratory and soothing practice for the full moon ♥
These classes fluctuate with the lunar phases offering an opportunity throughout the month to explore the restful, the dynamic and everything in between but know that you can always practice at the level and pace you feel each and every week.
I will always offer more dynamic options when we're primarily resting and vice versa because we're all cyclical creatures and each and every day brings a different experience.
NOTE: As part of my insurance if you are new to my classes I need to have an email or phone consultation of sorts with you first. And everyone needs to fill in and return the health form before joining the session. Thank you so much for understanding ♥ Feel free to invite anyone you might like to join you.

WILD WOMAN WIND DOWN
A gentle yoga practice that is fluid and adaptable to the waxing and waning of our needs and natures as women. Wild Woman Wind Down is an adaptive and feminine approach to yoga that seeks to support, nurture and empower women through all life stages and cycle phases.
An invitation to fully surrender to the seasons and cycles of your life and practice in a way that nourishes and supports your body wherever you might be in your menstrual cycle or greater life cycle. It offers full permission to be released from the expectations of consistency, predictability and infinite resource. Each practice ends with the deeply restorative and restful practice of Yoga Nidra.
The practice is both informative and experiential and includes information about how our yoga practice can best support our bodies during the difference phases and life stages.
- Gentle fluid asana (Well Woman Yoga inspired)
- Yoga asana for different phases of the menstrual cycle, stages of life (pregnancy, menopause etc.) and conditions depending on the needs of the group

FIERCE FREE FLOW
A Fiery, Wild & Free Dynamic Women's Yoga Practice

An invitation to invoke your inner wild woman, incite rebellion and surrender to the flow. This practice invites you to release stuck energy, shed inhibitions, and liberate yourself to explore intuitive primal movement.
Dynamic, fluid and playful asana to a diverse and danceable playlist.

Totally optional - you can always choose to not join a room and move, breath, lie down, drink tea, journal instead!

MY TEACHING STYLE
When it comes to yoga I love to work hard, play hard and rest incredibly hard! I like to sweat, dance, roll around, laugh, cry, try things I don't think I can do, explore things I love and liberate myself from the confines of structure and form to invoke feelings of freedom and wildness.
I love to explore challenge as I feel yoga can reveal to us that we are capable of so much more than we think we are and helps to challenge self-limiting beliefs.
Working Towards Being Completely Permissive & Inclusive
I seek to offer an inclusive, supportive, autonomous and nurturing environment which offers the space and freedom to explore the practice in a way that suits and serves your ever shifting mental, physical and emotional needs. I am defiant and rebellious and don't enjoy being told what to do so I try not to tell you what to do either and instead use permissive invitational language whilst still providing enough containment to hold the practice space safely.
My intention: Freedom
My intention as a teacher is to invite the exploration of freedom and unearth the many individual pathways to liberation through movement, self enquiry, meditation, breath, community and rest. Exploring resistance, defences and habitual patterns through the lens of movement, meditation and relaxation to discover the freedom to breathe well, move well and live well.
I offer: Wildness
I offer movement inspired by our wild nature; playful, spontaneous, fluid, cyclical, rhythmic and self-guided and regularly weave stories, themes and ideas from daily life and nature into the practices. My teachings are very much rooted in the modern day whilst also drawing inspiration from the traditions of the practice and the old ways.
I choose: Honesty
I choose to bring the truth of how I feel to each and every class because I truly believe the more human we can be with each other, the easier it becomes for us to be human.
I am committed to making sure I don't:
- Tell you that you're safe - I cannot define your parameters of safety and we do not have the same lived experience
- Tell you what you're feeling - I cannot possibly know what it is you are feeling and whilst there are some crossovers and archetypal themes our human experience is not universal
- Take lightly the theme of letting go - letting go is not a simple putting down of a suitcase and I will not approach it as such
- Ask you to forgive - some things are unforgivable and forgiveness takes time and is a process that cannot be rushed or forced
- Ask you to manifest - Rachel Rice words - '[the law of attraction] is not an ideology of liberation — financial or otherwise. It actually relies on and replicates systems of domination in which unsuccessful people are such because of personal mindset failures'
- Ask you to push through - you are in charge of your experience and I refuse to take away your autonomy or your right to feel what you feel without shame or judgement
- Speak generally - again I cannot speak on behalf of your experience only you can know what you are experiencing so I will only ever speak from my own perspective
- Proliferate the problematic love and light ideology - I believe in facing the darkness and feeling the challenging feels, I don't believe in bypassing challenge with phrases like 'good vibes only'
I am committed to making sure I do:
- Keep learning and growing and listening
- Challenge myself - my unconscious bias, my thoughts, ideas, privilege, judgments, the stories I have about myself and others
- Actively seek out information that helps me to be more inclusive and understanding of the perspectives of others
- Call people out and pull people up on discriminatory behaviours
- Admit my mistakes and do better
I have a lot to learn and I'm open to being called out on my shit and told when I get things wrong. For sure I've made mistakes but I'm learning and growing and committed to doing so.
And finally music is a huge part of my life and therefore my classes, I am a musician, music lover and worked in London in the music industry for years before becoming a yoga teacher. My playlists are diverse and eclectic seeking influence from rock, folk, blues, soul, gospel, dance music, indian classical, world, fusion and more.
Outside of The Studio
Outside of the studio I live for the outdoors. Nature, wild yoga, adventure and rewilding are passions of mine and I host regular Nature and Yoga Workshops and Retreats combining time spent in nature with yoga and meditation to harness the transformational effects of these powerful practices.
Explorations of the Feminine are inherently inclusive and as such these circles are open to all who identify as women including trans, non-binary or any other expression or identification of femininity. These circles value diversity of expression, experience and perspectives.
Open to all ages, life stages and cycle phases, including babies and young children (with adults).
