LUNAR PHASE FOR THIS PRACTICE
FIRST QUARTER MOON ~ Traditionally a time of action and energy, an invitation to reignite commitment to intentions and practices. At this phase in the lunar cycle the moon is making a hard angle with the sun called a 'square' and it's said that any issues that come up at this time are a call to action. This moon phase can also bring up challenges to confidence, our resolve is being tested (you don't say!).
FOCUS FOR THIS PRACTICE
Using the senses to stay present and enhance our experience of our yoga practice and perhaps our lives
The senses become habituated to that which they are exposed to often and stop taking it in. And right now lots of us are spending a lot more time in one setting than usual. When our senses are numb and dull our experience of life is often numb and dull. Indoors we tend only use our eyes and ears, out in nature we use all of our senses to take in the world around us. The senses are satiated in nature.
Throughout our practice we will explore using the senses to stay connected to our bodies and in the present moment.
‘What is called our experience is almost entirely determined by the habits of attention’ ~ William James
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Zoom as a platform offers us the chance to each see each other face to face as a group no matter where in the world we are! You can mute your end at any time.
The link will be sent to you via email on booking. It's free and super easy to use. Please download in advance and test your audio/video to avoid any delays on your end.
Opening check in ~ at the start of the session we'll do some centring to land and arrive and then depending on the size of the group we'll take around 10 minutes to check in with some or all of the women attending <3
Wild Woman Yoga ~ Wild Woman Yoga is about surrendering to the flow and being released from expectations of consistency, predictability and infinite resource. It is here that we may experience freedom beyond form and feel empowered to practice in a way that is fluid and adaptable to the waxing and waning of our needs and natures.

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.
