About Nalini

womens workshops

I’m Nalini, qualified women’s wellness coach, yoga teacher and holistic therapist and healer.  I specialise in women’s healing and empowerment, offering expertise, safe space and support for health and well-being.

I started my career in humanitarian aid and delved into holistic therapy and yoga in my spare time.  What started as a hobby seduced me away from my career to live and work in the Ananda spiritual community and yoga retreat centre in Italy for many years, which reshaped my whole life.

I qualified in Aromatherapy and Massage in 1994/95 and have studied and qualified in different holistic therapy approaches over the years including Reiki, Bach Flower Remedies and Body Listening (Body Psychology Skills)

After suffering with intense pain and PMT, I discovered Alexandra Pope’s work on Menstrual Cycle Awareness.  Apart from drastically reducing my symptoms, this work transformed the way I live my entire life.  It’s the most empowering and healing work a women can do, and the best prep for menopause too!

I qualified with Alexandra as a women’s coach and went on to qualify in womb yoga and yoga nidra to provide a rounded and unique approach to women’s well-being.  I blend all my skills into bespoke sessions to suit who you are and where you are at in life.  My approach is authentic and deeply rooted in my own experience.

I specialise in healing of women’s issues and our womb stories, and in providing tools for empowerment.  I also run women’s circles and workshops which are deeply nourishing, giving permission for rest, and providing the space for our voices and stories to be heard.  There is such an opening and joy in women when we come together in this way.  In every circle, I witness the relief in women as they finally arrive somewhere where they can talk openly about their experiences and share with other women.

I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience, and giving women the tools and support to empower their own lives.

Menstrual Cycle Workshop

I work with women holistically on many health challenges including the menstrual cycle, menopause, stress, anxiety and grief.  I also work with Women’s wellness yoga (womb yoga) to support fertility, postnatal, menstrual cycle and menopause.  This softer approach to yoga brings something really special to women, bringing them home to themselves and giving space too for deep rest and renewal.

As a ScarWork therapist, I use this effective treatment for integration and healing, both physically and emotionally, working with women who have had breast surgery including mastectomy, C-Section healing and many other scars.

I offer holistic coaching and therapy sessions for dealing with issues including stress, anxiety and sleep problems.  I also hold space for acknowledging and healing  the underestimated impact of miscarriage, abortion, hysterectomy and birth trauma.

My own life experiences and rich training enable me to offer you support, empathy and expertise on your own journey into healing and empowerment.

I hold healing herbs workshops too.  On these fun and interactive workshops, we connect with Mamma earth and use her gifts to make our own products, always with a little bit of magic in the air!  Click here for info on current workshops.

Passionate about herb and wild flower gardening and producing my Nalini Natural Skincare range.  I live surrounded by healing plants, many of which find their way onto my workshops or into my products.  I love cats, dance, travel, reading, journalling and being in nature (and cappuccino too!)   I play harmonium, an Indian musical instrument that accompanies devotional chanting, and follow the path of Bhakti Yoga – the yoga of devotion.

What I observe is how you interact with people, be they students, client , colleagues or acquaintances….is you create a  connection, a space in a conversation or a literal space in a classroom or office that people feel safe and welcome.  (A. Roach)

A great listener, a sounding board for thoughts and ideas, someone who clearly has lots of experience of many different aspects of the world we live in, who has learned from their own experiences and who has enormous compassion for others. (T. Reid)
