Summer Solstice Celebration – a Women’s Workshop – online

Saturday 2oth June – 2pm – 4pm

This is the first in a series of online workshops to celebrate the Wheel of the Year through the solstices and equinoxes – join me on a magical journey around the year, starting with summer solstice!

Summer is at it’s height as we arrive at the longest day of the year – nature is in full flow and hopefully, days are warm and languid!  The solstices and equinoxes mark the mid point of seasons.  The solstices represent the longest and shortest days, while the equinoxes represent balance when day and night are equal.  Each one has its own wisdom and guidance.

In this delicious workshop, we will delve into the meaning of the summer solstice, the magic and inspiration it contains, and how we can live more in tune with the seasons to bring harmony into our lives.  (Note too that the seasons are contained in our menstrual cycle so we’ll have a look a that too – it’s fascinating!).

Some gentle and restorative yoga, and a gorgeously relaxing session of yoga nidra to celebrate the height of summer.

We’ll chat about what this year’s solstice means to us in view of what we have been traversing this year, both individually, and collectively in view of the lockdown restrictions.

And of course, we will perform a little ritual together to really honour this special and potent time of year!  Concluding with choosing a card for you from the stunning ‘Nature’s Whispers’ oracle deck.

Cool, Calm….and Totally Collected! – Yoga and Menopause

Saturday 11th July 2pm – 5pm  Total Therapy Studios, Horsham

Yoga offers a pathway to health and well-being through our whole journey of life, but perhaps during menopause, it really shows itself as being of optimum benefit.  From gentle movements to nourish aching joints and strengthen bones, to breathwork that eases hot flushes and overwhelm, and everything in between, there is something for all women to be gained from making a dedicated gentle yoga class part of their self-care.

The inclusion of restorative poses where we take the support of bolsters and blocks, are a joy to most menopausal women.  My personal feelings here are that, as well as the benefits of supported poses, there is an unconscious sigh of relief when women do these poses as they finally allow themselves to receive support after supporting others for so many years.  Part of the menopause journey is being OK with letting go and receiving support, and starting to say ‘yes’ to ourselves!  Gorgeously relaxing sessions of Yoga Nidra included.

Come and take some well-earned time out to ease into these gentle, nourishing practices that will leave you feeling more in control of your menopause.

For all women, perimenopause, menopause or for any woman who is interested in knowing more about how to navigate and reap the most of the change when it arrives.

burns….and a whole heap of other stuff too!” (Nalini)

Understanding Yoga Nidra

An informative and relaxing workshop

Saturday 31st Oct or Sunday 1st November – to be confirmed

Leamington Spa 

For yoga teachers, yoga students, or anyone who wants to dive deeper into their understanding of Yoga Nidra and Meditation.  This three hour workshop will give you an in-depth overview of this life-changing practice.

Yoga Nidra is a deeply restorative and integrative practice that takes us into the present moment, which is the only moment we have.  And while it may look like you are just lying down and relaxing, it goes much deeper than that.  Yoga Nidra provides tools for navigating life with a sense of calmness and peace.  In addition, we learn  how to welcome and respond to whatever conditions arise, without the need to ‘fix’ anything.  A regular practice develops a sense of ease that infiltrates into all areas of our lives.

Yoga Nidra as a tool for healing

Shock, trauma, pain, stress and  anxiety impact the health of the nervous system and can lock us into a state of constant hyper-arousal that drains us of energy and enthusiasm.  Because a regular practice of Yoga Nidra works on restoring the health of the nervous system and calming down the anxiety response,  an increased sense of calmness and well-being takes place.  Yoga Nidra is also recognised for as effective for pain management and sleep disturbance.

On this workshop, in addition to deeply relaxing sessions of Yoga Nidra, we will explore how Yoga Nidra fits into our yoga practice and the eight limbs of yoga, how it aligns with the koshas and why it is so important to have an embodied understanding of Yoga Nidra as a meditative and healing practice before sharing it with others.  “My hope is that this workshop will inspire you to really explore Yoga Nidra, through a dedicated self-practice, or through a professional training” (Nalini)

Nalini will share her many years experience of meditation and yoga nidra.  She trained with iRest yoga nidra and with the Ananda School of Yoga and Meditation.  She lived at the Ananda Yoga and Meditation Centre in Italy for many  years before returning to the UK in 2014.  She also trained with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli in Yoni Shakti – Women’s Wellness Yoga and teaches regular yoga, yoga nidra and meditation classes and workshops.

Ananda Christmas Meditation, Chanting & Satsang

Sunday 13th December, 10am – 1pm Reigate – click here for details.

“I have participated on a variety of Nalini’s workshops and courses and loved them all! I could go as far as saying they have transformed my outlook on life: The herbal workshops have reconnected me to nature and opened my eyes to the chemicals in commercial products; her yoga and nidra have been the tonic to a fast paced life.  However, Nalini has been much more then a teacher- I would definitely describe her as a life coach for women’s wellness! Thank you Nalini- look forward to another workshop”! (Vicki Fitzpatrick, teacher)

“Thank you for a wonderful morning of dance and yoga nidra.  Every time it is a different experience and I take away new ideas and realisations.  It is so enjoyable and revitalising, and unlike anything else” (Regular Dancemantra attendee)
