LUNAR PHASE FOR THIS PRACTICE
NEW MOON ~ the new moon is the low point of the lunar cycle, a time for rest, retreat and visioning. It also marks the start of a new cycle, an opportunity to shed old skins and step into something new.
PRACTICE FOCUS: REST AND SLOWNESS
The myth of consistency, predictability and infinite resource runs deep in this culture that still prioritises productivity over the health and wellbeing of its people and still believes the earth can perpetually give without consequence. A culture that views the priority of pleasure and rest as indulgent and lazy and looks down on anyone who isn’t showing up consistently in their life or work. But linear consistency isn’t sustainable and pleasure is our birth rite.
We'll be using things from around the house to take some restful, restorative postures, moving gently through a series of movements designed to bring awareness and blood flow to the organs of the pelvis and then we'll rest HARD with a yoga nidra <3
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
- Restorative postures
- Yoga Nidra (Deep Relaxation practice)

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.
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 and breath. Exploring resistance, defences and patterns through the lens of movement, meditation and relaxation to discover the freedom to breathe well, move well and live well.
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 our ever shifting mental, physical and emotional needs.
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.
I offer movement inspired by our wild nature; playful, spontaneous, fluid 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 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.
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).
