Current ways you can explore movement and stillness with me (all sessions are from 45 mins to 1hr 30 mins, feel free to read the context behind each class):
1. From 'Burnout to centered' class
Realigning and balancing the energy: for those that are feeling burnt out or taking steps to prevent burnout.
(Spending 15 years as a senior leader in a masculine corporate industry before my nomadic entrepreneurial journey, I understand what being constantly burnt out with the need to find balance is like.)
2. Holding space for men - 'Functional movement' class
A full body stretch - for functional movement giving mobility and flexibility, one class at a time.
(From bodybuilding to yoga - 2015, I was injured unable to train, found my way to a solo yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico or yoga found me as tis was the last thing I wanted to do, telling myself "yoga isn't going to maintain or replace the muscle I lost"... I quickly found I lacked range of motion in my shoulders, hips and hamstrings because of lifting weights mindlessly for years… so through yoga my perspective opened, I rehabilitated in body, letting go of the ego, releasing trauma that I had held in body from the loss of my brother and here my journey of body, mind and soul began! - I took a few years off lifting weights to fully integrate this part of my life journey and although I split my time in what is strength training now, I never went back to competitive bodybuilding,
So, I know exactly the journey of starting to implement yoga into your lifestyle as took me a while to adapt, but with consistency and a suitable teacher, you can too.)
3. Holding space for the sacred womban - 'Sitting with the Feminine' class
Ground and rise in your feminine form - reconnecting to your portal, the womb space, the sacral/gut/intuition. Honouring the times when red tents, circles, existed!
Beginning with breathwork and affirmations to moving into a yoga flow (off the feet, so no standing) with heart and hip openers.
(Being in my masculine of 'doing' for so long, I was left with no choice but to drop into my feminine and 'receive'. For a whole year, I sat in my feminine, rested, meditated, prayed, went deep within, inter-connected, inner-stood myself in ways never before, I tried to work, do, create, but nothing would connect. I eventually let go of the frustration, as I was clearly being guided to stillness and integrate all my years of work so I may ascend to my calling, my purpose. Once I had received, downloaded, filled my cup, I was ready to for the next chapter of my path in a place of balance.)
