Summer Solstice Nidra Festival – a month of nidra recordings for deep summer rest December 20- Jan 15th My solstice gift to you
The Summer solstice is a time to rest, pause and savour all that we are grateful for. When we lie down and practice nidra we are not only listening to our body wisdom but also to that of the earth herself. In the summer months we are likely be outdoors more and lying on grass, sand and under trees so your practice is often more powerful. Over the summer holidays you may like to gift yourself the time to practice daily. There is no best time to practice or right or wrong way of doing nidra. However you might like to get some headphones and fathom how to download the recordings onto your phone or tablet so that your practice can travel with you. Sign up here

Seven Planets and Kundalini Yoga Thursdays 9-10am October 28th- Dec 16th on zoom and in person
Do you ever wish you had a road map or an instruction manual for understanding what the heck is going on in life? This teensy 8 week course is to help shed some light on the life you have lived so far and possibly help to reframe your life ahead. The main framework for this is understanding that we are part of a cyclical universe and just as the planets above have their own speedy or slow cycles then so do us mere mortals on earth. As above so below!
The course consists of one introductory class to explain the theory and how to have a hot date with a calendar, a timeline and a trip down memory lane. The following 7 classes are all Kundalini yoga kriyas and meditations to integrate each life phase. You are then equipped to apply the tools whenever you wish and be prepared for your future life cycles.
Thursdays 9-10am October 28th – Dec 16th. Usual class rates apply and recordings are available for those who can’t attend in person or online at that time. Book in here if you wish to attend in person
Pranayama Monthly Sunday Session Online and in person $15 or $5/koha unwaged Next session Sunday 7-8.30pm January 2022
A 90min monthly class for graduates of my year long pranayama programme ( or those who regularly attend my classes). Now that you understand the way you breathe and can use more of your lung capacity you are ready to explore the breath technology of Kundalini Yoga. New pranees are also welcome!
Each month we explore a new therapeutic breathing practice, exploring pauses, nostril dominance, purification, how to breathe in strokes for different brain focus, and how to whistle your way to happiness. These practices bring healing and a meditative quality to your practice. The session will include a pranayama that you can be a part of your daily practice for the month if you wish. This month our focus is to release and clear what is no longer working for us. We also welcome the energy of the eclipse season – addressing our distractions from our purpose.
