Magdalene Women's Circle

Magdalene Women's Circle..png

Goddesses, I am so honoured to be able to offer a sacred Magdalene Women’s Circle.

When we work with the energy of Mary Magdalene, we connect into pure love, into unconditional support, into the true essence of the Divine Feminine and as we work with this energy, we can connect deeper into our true feminine essence.

For me when I started working with this energy it was a coming home. I have found that I have softened, found more inner stillness and serenity, yet I feel stronger and more dedicated to standing in my truth.

For many of us, this Magdalene energy is an essence of the feminine that has been missing in our lives.

We will join together in ritual, ceremony, sharing, some embodied movement and guided visualisation.

In the tradition of the Magdalenes, these circles will be limited to 12 goddesses.

I do hope you decide to join me for this special event.

We will meet in a beautiful space, high up in Camden with fabulous views over London from 3 sides. It was important to me to find a place that was both light and elevated.

Be Wild, Be Free, the Wild Woman.

wild woman.jpg

Goddesses; I invite you to join me in this deeply transformative sacred space as we join together for a mini retreat dedicated to the Wild Woman.

"Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity and ageless knowing.

Her name is Wild Woman..........but she is an endangered species"
Clarissa Pinkola Estes

We’ll connect into the wild, untamed part of ourselves, we dive deep to connect to the instinctual, the rooted rawness of our being and connect into the essence of freedom. When we try to fit in, we may squash or contain our Wild Woman; instead when we embrace her we open to absolute freedom.

We will meet together and combining my many years of experience as a yoga teacher, depth life coach, therapist, priestess specialising in working with the divine feminine and over our three hours together, I’ll create sacred space and we will meet together, to share, to open up to our intentions, moving into juicy and dynamic flows before softening into deeper held restorative poses, ritual and a deeply healing and powerful yoga nidra to end. We will invoke, integrate and embrace the Wild Woman archetype. We’ll bow to and honour her and the gifts she brings to us, freedom, connection to our body, our instinctual nature, to the earth and the cycles of nature.

This will be held in sacred space and there will be rituals to connect to the Goddess both within and without.

This mini retreat is for just 9 Goddesses and the exchange is £49.

Power, Presence, Healing and the Divine Feminine with Goddess Isis
Sep

to 29 Sep

Power, Presence, Healing and the Divine Feminine with Goddess Isis

Power, Presence, Healing and the Divine Feminine with Goddess Isis

Goddess Isis is the very essence of the Divine Feminine or Shakti power and her name means: “Woman of the Throne”. She is devoted to empowering women and stands for the awakened woman (versus the wounded woman).

She supports every woman in her quest to reclaim her power and take responsibility for her own healing journey on every level, (Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual)

She awakens the innate healing ability within us all and empowers us to use the healing power of LOVE and GRATITUDE to raise the energy body to connect to Source.

I soften

I strengthen

I show up

I surrender

By connecting in with the many aspects of Goddess Isis, we will align to our truth, and give ourselves permission to soften. In that softness we will discover more strength have the confidence to show up fully, to live a fully expressed life…..and in so doing we surrender to the flow.

Having just run a Sunday mini retreat dedicated to Goddess Isis, I was overwhelmed by the power and energy in the room and have been guided to run this weekend retreat taking this work deeper.

This is open to all women ready to explore their connection to the Divine Feminine, via the Heroines Journey and Goddess Isis.

This weekend will be a mix of creative vinyasa flow yoga, soft restorative yoga, ritual, walking meditation, and more…..expect to dive in with all of your senses and have an embodied experience of being empowered by the Goddess as you connect to reconnect to your personal power.

This shows up in our everyday life in situations such as: being able to draw loving and firm boundaries, being able to say no without feeling guilty, committing to a practice of self care, creating harmonious relationships where you are able to merge with another without losing yourself, find renewed energy and enthusiasm for life, a sense of wellbeing and knowing you are your own best healer as we tune into our intuition and listen to what needs to be shed or embraced to enable us to live a fully expressed life.

Come and be willing to be playful, open, curious and dive deep. When we surrender to Goddess Isis, she will show us the way!

Tilton House.

I am so excited to be returning to this beautiful venue, Tilton House, snuggled in the Sussex countryside.  We will practise our yoga in the wonderful yurt, working in a circle....which is the natural way for women to gather and share. Tilton offers beautiful, boutique twin rooms, the most amazing, nourishing and warming food and a truly, special nurturing atmosphere.

As well as yoga in the yurt, there is a cosy library we can use for evening chats, and the most stunning grounds for walks in nature and a sauna.  Our food is eaten in the beautiful, homely kitchen where we will enjoy 3 delicious meals per day.

Queen, Take your Crown

Queen, Take your Crown

IMG_4230.jpg

Goddesses; I invite you to join me in this deeply transformative sacred space as we join together for a mini retreat where we explore becoming the Queen of our lives and taking back our power, embracing the wild, medicine and wise woman. When we do so, we take our crown and wear it.

For many women we spend our younger years trying to fit in, or find our way and in doing so, we may turn away from our truth and end up feeling disempowered. We probably don’t consciously know this, instead we feel stressed, dissatisfied, unfulfilled and looking for the “thing” that is going to complete us, or be the answer.

Goddess, you are already perfect, powerful and you are all you need to be!

The journey for a woman is in and down - as we connect to the Goddess and use her power and bring it through in a way that is authentic and unique for each of us.

We each have a call - and inner stirring to take the journey. Many resist, and when we do, this often shows up as physical symptoms. I believe we have 2 major calls to adventure, one in early adulthood and one as we approach maturity. I am noticing this is getting younger. It used to be around 45, but now in many aware women this is mid to late 30’s. We have an inner calling to connect to a power within….and to lead a life in alignment with our truth. I believe when we resist this, our body manifests symptoms to make us pay attention. (These could be the symptoms of hot flushes etc from peri and menopause, or from digestive issues, or more serious dis-eases).

This is our most powerful time as women - it is when a portal opens for us to step from maidenhood into a fully empowered woman. When we step through this portal, our inner world has greater importance and significance and we know in our body and soul that in order to have a harmonious, loving, healthy, joyful outer life, we need to nourish our inner landscape!

When we don’t, we end up managing symptoms, we get disillusioned, we try to hold onto how things used to be and it gets harder and harder.

When we dive in, we are in flow, we are in the magic and we are co-creators of our life and our body.

We will meet together and combining my many years of experience as a yoga teacher, depth life coach, therapist, priestess specialising in working with the divine feminine and over our three hours together, I’ll create sacred space and we will meet together, to share, to open up to our intentions, moving into juicy and dynamic flows before softening into deeper held restorative poses, ritual and a deeply healing and powerful yoga nidra to end. We will invoke, integrate and embrace the Queen archetype as we bow and honour the Wise, Wild, and Medicine woman and all the others phases that have brought us to this rich and rewarding phase.

This will be held in sacred space and there will be rituals to connect to the Goddess both within and without.

This mini retreat is for just 9 Goddesses and the exchange is £49.

Intuition, the Wise Woman

wild woman.jpg

Goddesses; I invite you to join me in this deeply transformative sacred space as we join together for a mini retreat dedicated to Intuition with the Wise Woman.

In this special mini retreat we explore and open to the wealth of wisdom within. When we take some time to switch off from all the noise and the "shoulds" and the "right things" to do, we can soften into that incredible cauldron of power within as we open to and own our own wisdom. Wisdom and deep knowing that comes from our life experiences, those we tap into in the collective unconscious and what we brought with us from past lives.

As usual, we will begin with setting a divine intention, story telling, before we dive into a creative vinyasa flow practice, slowing down in deeper held poses before a guided visualisation to embrace the inner medicine woman.

This will be held in sacred space and there will be rituals to connect to the Goddess both within and without.

This mini retreat is for just 12 Goddesses and the exchange is £37.50

Solstice, Goddess, Ritual & Rise.png

Goddesses…..our next Goddess, Ritual and Rise event will be on 21st June as we gather together in sisterhood to celebrate the goddess within and honour the summer solstice and the birthday of one of our special sisters!

Together we will practise sacred ritual, honouring surya, the sun and the longest day. I am hoping that the weather will be kind so that we can spend some of this evening outside in nature..

As a yoga teacher there will always be some yoga and embodied movement in these Friday events (but less than my Sunday afternoon mini retreats) there will always be a ritual and an opportunity to rise together, and we we will end with a delicious guided visualisation.

Each month there will be a different theme and I will be inviting in some guests too - a few ideas I have now are drumming and crystal bowls.

There will be less asana than usual (but we will of course still join together in creative flows). I invite you to wear your most gorgeous clothes, (that you can still move in), wear glitter, flowers in your hair, favourite scarves…anything goes - just wear something that makes you feel special and gorgeous.

We’ll go with the flow, connect to the Divine Feminine, allow shakti to rise, discover freedom, empowerment, juiciness, magic, laughter and more….

We’ll gather together in a special yoga community and keep the vibe high.

I’ll provide some tasty food and more… I’m so excited about this event and I hope you decide to join me to celebrate the Goddess within.

Give yourself the gift of a mini retreat - as usual spaces are limited.  The exchange is £37.50.  

Looking forward to sharing this time with you.

Connect to your Souls Truth with Goddess Isis

InspireYoga_4.jpg

Goddesses; I invite you to join me in this deeply transformative sacred space as we join together for a mini retreat dedicated to the Goddess Isis and how we connect to our souls truth.

For many years, the Divine Feminine has been subdued, and for many women now, the only way they know how to be powerful and succeed is to connect in with their masculine energy. Through the mythical Heroine’s Journey, we discover the journey towards the Goddess, the Divine Feminine.

This mini retreat will continue with this theme and will be dedicated to Goddess Isis and how by invoking her energy we can connect to our power, purpose and presence. When we connect to the power of the Divine Feminine, it can be soft, serene and still incredibly powerful. Goddess Isis will help us to heal the wounded feminine and integrate all parts of us on the path to wholeness.

As usual, we will begin with setting a divine intention, story telling, before we dive into a creative vinyasa flow practice, slowing down in deeper held poses before a guided visualisation to meet Goddess Isis.

This will be held in sacred space and there will be rituals to connect to the Goddess both within and without.

This mini retreat is for just 9 Goddesses and the exchange is £49.

Embrace the Medicine Woman.

Embrace the Medicine Woman.

Medicine Woman.png

Goddesses; I invite you to join me in this deeply transformative sacred space as we join together for a mini retreat dedicated to the Medicine Woman.

This month we meet and embrace the Medicine Woman as we open ourselves to the healer within and the sacred medicine each of us has to share with the world. We may see ourselves as a teacher, a leader, a coach, a healer, a visionary, a mother, a seer, a visionary, a priestess, a truth seeker or wisdom holder…..in each of these roles, we have our sacred medicine.

It may not be our job, our career, or our business but even if at first our role seems different to one of those mentioned above, for most of us, when we connect into our own sacred medicine, we realise we fill one of these roles of the medicine woman, even if it is not obvious at first.

We’ll also look at how we dispense this medicine to ourselves, do we allow our own inner light to be switched on, do we allow ourselves to be healed, to be nourished and receive the medicine before we pass it on.

For many of us, we have been persecuted in the past for this medicine, the ability to heal (whether this is through actions, words or touch) and we hold that memory in our collective unconscious and can be reluctant to own our medicine. In this safe space, we allow ourselves to be open to exploring this and integrating it in a way that feels authentic to each of us.

As usual, we will begin with setting a divine intention, story telling, before we dive into a creative vinyasa flow practice, slowing down in deeper held poses before a guided visualisation to embrace the inner medicine woman.

This will be held in sacred space and there will be rituals to connect to the Goddess both within and without.

Goddesses…..after the success of this event for International Women’s Day, I have decided to make this a regular monthly event. I’m playing with a few names at the moment, but as I am keen to share this one, I have chosen one of the names:

Goddess, Ritual and Rise

and I invite you to join me on Friday 5th April to celebrate my birthday Goddess Style.

As a yoga teacher there will always be some yoga and embodied movement in these Friday events (but less than my Sunday afternoon mini retreats) there will always be a ritual and an opportunity to rise together, and we we will end with a delicious guided visualisation.

Going beyond the Veil of Illusion with Goddess Kali

Going beyond the Veil of Illusion with Goddess Kali

Kali2.jpg

This month, shortly after the New Moon, we’re going to be working with Goddess Kali again as we go beyond the veils of illusion, we let go of the unreal, and move into our truth with Goddess Kali. She is the warrior goddess who appears in our life when it is time to let go of who or what no longer serves us, or when we are in a place where we feel stuck and cannot see a way forward.

An often used phrase: “If we always do what we’ve always done, then we’ll always get what we’ve always got”

I know from my own experience and life, I have run the same patterns many time, and when I found myself in the same unresourceful place, I had used the same behaviours, strategies or beliefs to get me out of that place. Great in the short term…..but very soon I was on the same cycle and in the same place again! With Goddess Kali we find the courage to move into a different groove, release ourselves out of the pattern we have been in and create a new one.

This means, truly facing ourselves, all of ourselves, recognising our truth and owning all parts of us, so we can start creating new patterns that are more aligned with our truth.

Before we can create anew, we need to shed, release, let go, or even destroy. Change or transformation cannot happen until we release the old. Often I see people looking to bring in the new before they will release the old. Let’s invite Goddess Kali to help us to release.

It is said that when we resist Kali, she eventually turns up and can bring with her a trail of destruction and chaos as everything appears to be falling apart. If instead of resisting her, we invite her in regularly - think of it like spiritual hygiene, then the changes, the releasing are smaller and more comfortable.

As she encourages us to see our truth and she unconditionally loves us for this truth, we have to turn and face our shadow. When we avoid our shadow, it has power over us, when we face and integrate it, it often becomes our greatest resource!

Give yourself the gift of a mini retreat - as always places are limited. The exchange is £37.50.  

This will be a small mini retreat - I am limiting it to only 12 spaces.

Looking forward to sharing this time with you.

Goddess……I am being called to do the deeper work with Isis and I am sure she will resonate with many of you two. For February - we go deeper into the aspects of Isis we explored in Jan (but it is still a stand alone workshop if you didn’t attend January).

This month, we will explore the way of the Awakened woman through sacred practices connected with Isis. Alchemy. Transmutation.

We will explore our deepest truths and how we honour them in this life time; what is preventing us from living that truth, and how we are showing up in our lives, for ourselves, our family, the planet etc.

What are we being called upon to alchemise?

When we surrender, so our power is stronger!

“Queen Isis of Egypt holds, guards and disseminates our sacred contracts to the goddess. As Divine Mother to the people she activates the gold within our hearts, gives us the courage to rise up above past limitations and fears and unlocks our inner keys of power and purpose.”

As usual we will start the afternoon with a reading, a poem or a prayer, starting to move and open through our body before we move into deeper, longer held restorative poses and ending in a delicious yoga nidra. 

Give yourself the gift of a mini retreat - as always places are limited. The exchange is £37.50.  

Looking forward to sharing this time with you.

Sacred Women's Circle - Connect to the Divine Feminine - Feb

AllisonBali104.jpg

In ancient times women gathered together in circles to connect, to practise ritual, to share from their hearts, to listen, to learn; to be seen, to heal and to create magic.

I feel strongly called to be part of a group of women...modern day medicine women to bring back the power of the circle. Come along and join me for these monthly circles where you will be warmly welcomed and held in a safe, sacred space.

Each month will have a theme, and we will work with one of the goddesses - it maybe Durga, Kali, Lakshmi, Isis, Mary Magdalene, Hecate or an archetype such as crone, mother, amazonian warrior or priestess.

Expect to open with an invocation, a reading, a chant or a short meditation.

We will work with oracle cards and essential oils. We will open the circle for sharing where each woman will have an opportunity to speak (if she wants to), and to be witnessed. We will do some kind of movement practice; maybe some energy work, maybe some creative work and ending with a guided visualisation / yoga nidra.

About me: Allison is a Senior Yoga teacher, a Reiki Master, a Depth Coach, working with archetypes and a Hypnotherapist. She works specifically with women to allow them to open to their authentic selves and to be empowered. She works with the Goddesses, bringing in ancient wisdom into the practical every day life. She loves the mystical, magical and ritual and is highly intuitive....and at the same time she is passionate about sharing this in a way that is practical and grounded. We need to be able to integrate both!

*New Class* Thursday morning flow - Elmdon Lee, Saffron Walden

Allison 7.jpg

At long last, I am delighted to be starting a new class in Saffron Walden. This weekly class (Thursday mornings) will be held at the beautiful Elmdon Lee, Saffron Walden. In the winter, we will practice inside with a warming real fire and in the summer months, we will practice outside in nature under the shade of the trees, when the weather is warm enough.

Come and join me on Thurs mornings for a small, intimate yoga group. There will be a max of 8 students, and each class will be themed. Sometimes with the various Goddesses, Durga, Kali, Saraswati and Lakshmi, or maybe honouring the moon cycles, the seasons, the energy in the room. My intention is to create this class as a sacred space to practise yoga, not an exercise class.

Together we will dive into inspiring, creative, dynamic and nourishing flows with a different theme each week.  Some weeks maybe more challenging, others more restorative but always working at a deep level. 

If you don't know me - I am absolutely passionate about yoga and I love it and live it - but I am not serious!!  Bring a sense of playfulness too.  We can  still go deep, get to know ourselves, stretch our body, mind and soul.

No experience is required - this will be a mixed level class and I will give options to cater for all.  Suitable for experienced yogis and healthy beginners.

Not suitable for pregnancy (unless you have already been doing yoga with me before your pregnancy).

Spaces limited to just 8.

I’ll run this new class as “book by class” initially so you can try one class and see if it is right for you.

Class price: £15.

Rising into your power, purpose and presence with Goddess Isis

IMG_0942.JPG

Goddess……this theme has been percolating over the last few months and now is the time to share this new theme and I am so incredibly excited.

With Goddess Isis, we will connect into, honour and respect our personal power, our souls purpose and our presence, and cultivate a way of showing up every day, (no matter what is happening) being in our natural flow.

This month we will let go of struggle, negative self talk, ideas about how it should be and we will surrender into our flow.

When we surrender, so our power is stronger!

“Queen Isis of Egypt holds, guards and disseminates our sacred contracts to the goddess. As Divine Mother to the people she activates the gold within our hearts, gives us the courage to rise up above past limitations and fears and unlocks our inner keys of power and purpose.”

This mini retreat coincides with the Full Moon and so the perfect time to embrace this theme and Isis.

As usual we will start the afternoon with a reading, a poem or a prayer, starting to move and open through our body before we move into deeper, longer held restorative poses and ending in a delicious yoga nidra. 

Give yourself the gift of a mini retreat - as always places are limited. The exchange is £37.50.

Creating a positive 2019 with the power of the Divine Feminine

catherine-mcmahon-10118.jpg

Goddesses, I am delighted to be sharing this special offering with you to close out 2018 and bring in 2019 with conscious awareness.

We will enjoy challenging and detoxifying yoga flows to cleanse and energise our body and uplift and inspire our spirits, and call on the various deities and divine feminine to allow us to release what no longer serves us and to invite in what will enable us to move forward into the next cycle.

In this mini retreat we will use ritual, mudra and myth to create a sacred space and call in the energies that will facilitate our growth.

I promise this will be a deep and inspiring afternoon dedicated to you and will be special and sacred!!

However, as usual we will follow the usual cycle of the workshop by starting with a reading, a poem or a prayer, starting to move and open through our body before we move into deeper, longer held restorative poses and ending in a delicious yoga nidra. 

Give yourself the gift of a mini retreat - as always places are limited. The exchange is £37.50.

Winter Solstice Day retreat

tofte labyrinth.jpeg

Come and join me as I return to the beautiful Tofte Manor, for a full days retreat to celebrate the winter solstice and to take some precious self care time for you ahead of the busy festive period.

The highlight of a days retreat at Tofte, is walking the labyrinth.  It is said that we lose ourselves in a maze but we find ourselves in a labyrinth. I have brought groups here before and this is a really powerful one.  There is a large crystal at the centre and you can really feel its energy.

We will practice in the beautiful crystal room, which has underfloor heating and giant quartz crystals in the corner. 

The day includes a healthy and delicious vegetarian / vegan lunch.

As we gather together, we will reflect on the period that has passed and set clear intentions for the period ahead; as usual for my retreats, I will weave in the myths of the goddesses with energising and uplifting flows, with deeply held restorative poses, balance, time in nature, journalling time, ritual and we will of course finish with a beautiful yoga nidra!

Your investment for this full day of deliciousness, connection and divine self care is just £97 and spaces are limited to just 14 people.

I look forward to sharing this magical time with you.

Allison xx

Divine Self care with Lakshmi - a heart centred practice

Divine Self care with Lakshmi - a heart centred practice

IMG_0942.JPG

Goddesses, as we dive into December and life out there can get a bit frantic - I thought it would be the perfect time to have a mini retreat dedicated to Divine Self care and invoking Lakshmi for a heart opening practice.

As it is winter, we will connect to the fire of the heart, stoking that fire and bringing it into the heart in a way that nourishes, revitalises and opens us.

We’ll invoke, embrace and embody Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance, love and true worth. Through working with Lakshmi, we will connect into our sense of worthiness and the gifts that we bring to the world when we show up in all of our truth and magnificence.

“Lakshmi throws the spell of the intoxicating sweetness of the divine; to be close to her is a profound happiness and to feel her within the heart is to make existence a rupture and a marvel; grace and charm and tenderness flow out from her like light from the sun and wherever she fixes her wonderful gaze or lets fall the loveliness of her smile, the soul is seized and made captive and plunged into the depths of an unfathomable bliss”

Sri Aurobindo.

As usual we will start the afternoon with a reading, a poem or a prayer, starting to move and open through our body before we move into deeper, longer held restorative poses and ending in a delicious yoga nidra.

Queen...take your Crown - Luxury Ibiza retreat

We become the wise woman.

We become the medicine woman.

This is a time to be celebrated!

The word crone comes from CROWN.  Are you ready to take your crown and be the QUEEN of your life?  It's time to let go of the patterns that keep us small, and step away from conditioning that may have made us feel that we are less valuable, less worthy (instead of more so) so that we embrace, yes EMBRACE this empowered stage of our lives.

Embodying Durga

Embodying Durga

IMG_0942.JPG

As Autumn approaches we will revisit one of the Warrior Goddesses with Goddess Durga - one of the Warrior Goddesses, the Divine Mother and the Goddess of Protection and we’ll explore her qualities around being grounded, drawing boundaries and authentic feminine leadership.

Durga has 8 arms - each carrying a weapon with a certain purpose:

1.Chakra in her 1st upper right hand symbolizes dharma (righteousness, spiritual teachings or duty). We must perform our responsibilities in life and follow an authentic traditional spiritual school.

2.Conch in her 1st upper left hand symbolizes the ”Pranava” or the mystic word ”Om” or ”Aum”, which indicates the Goddess holding on to God in the form of sacred sound.

3.Sword in her 2nd right lower hand symbolizes knowledge, which has the sharpness of a sword. Knowledge which is free from all doubts is symbolized by the shine of the sword.

4.Bow and arrow in her 2nd left lower hand symbolizes character like Lord Rama (the seventh avatar of the Lord Vishnu). When we face difficulties in our life we should not lose our character.

5.Lotus flower in her 3rd lower left hand symbolizes the awakening of spiritual consciousness in a soul. The Goddess will help her true followers to understand the transience of life and seek the ultimate truth.

6.Club in her 3rd right lower hand is the symbol of Hanuman (the Hindu monkey god) and symbolizes surrender and devotion. Whatever we do in our life we do with devotion and love and accept the outcome as the Almighty’s will.

7.Trishul/Trident in her 4th left lower hand is a symbol of 3 qualities – tamas (non-activity), rajas (activity) and sattva (inactivity). The Goddess is the remover (the purifier) of all the 3 types of miseries – spiritual, mental and physical.

8.4th lower right hand symbolises forgiveness and Her blessings. We must forgive others and ourselves for mistakes or/and any hurt we may have caused.Through flows, readings, ritual etc we will explore and embody the qualities of the Goddess.  As we explore the qualities, we will look at how we can integrate these into our yoga practice and into our life in general.  As we start with Durga, we will be exploring her qualities around protection, being grounded, drawing boundaries and authentic leadership.

As usual we will start the afternoon with a reading, a poem or a prayer, starting to move and open through our body before we move into deeper, longer held restorative poses and ending in a delicious yoga nidra. 

Give yourself the gift of a mini retreat - as always places are limited. The exchange is £37.50.  

Looking forward to sharing this time with you.
