*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.

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!

Goddess Isis: The way of the Awakened Woman - sacred practices

IMG_0942.JPG

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.

Embodying Shakti

Embodying Shakti

Goddesses, I invite you to join me for this special weekend as I share all that I am passionate about with 4 aspects of Shakti; Durga, Saraswati, Kali and Lakshmi.  

It is fascinating to to learn about the different aspects of Shakti, via the Goddesses, but it is only when we Awaken, Invoke and Embody them that we are aware of the inner resources we have and how they can be used practically in our every day life - whether that is in our intimate relationships, our business, career, family life, health, spirituality and deeper purpose in life.

Through the weekend we will go on a journey to meet each Goddess (and via the 4 elements of earth, water, fire and air.  Expect dynamic flows and restorative yoga, yoga nidra, pranayama, ritual, journeying and journalling. 

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

She Who Flows
A Prana Vinyasa Yoga Workshop with Delamay Devi

During this Prana Vinyasa yoga workshop, Delamay will guide you through a variety of Saraswati inspired namaskars and wave sequences finely crafted to awaken the sacred waters of the body, designed to massage, purify and coax the multi-layers of the physical body to deeply open, breath fully and move as one.

We approach this creative practice as a moving meditation, turning to face different directions, working alone and in partners and potentially moving into the matless space. We explore a full spectrum of pulsing, body and rhythm vinyasa to enhance freedom of expression in the fluid body, satisfy the busy mind and ignite the creative spark within us all. By drawing upon the power of Sahaja/Spontaneous movement we increase our range of motion, enhance our individual mobility and find balance with total ease. With a perfect balance of movement medicine and yoga asana during this flowing and inspiring workshop, we will be using Kramas / different stages of evolution within asana making it suitable for all levels.

Your exchange is £37.50 and spaces are limited.

The Amazonian Warrior Goddess

IMG_7677.JPG

Following on from some amazing insights whilst taking part in a fabulous Teacher Training module in Bali, for this mini retreat, taking a departure from the Hindu Goddesses for May, to dive into the Archetype of the Amazonian Warrior Goddess.

Come and join me in May, as we go deeper on a journey and connect to the energy and essence of the Amazonian warrior - connecting to her inner and outer strength, her ability to see through the veils of illusion to see the deeper truth and to use alchemy to bring about empowered change.  We will connect to the focus, direction and deep sense of spirituality in this Goddess, connected to the cycles of nature.

Discovering the Wild Woman with Kali

IMG_0942.JPG

In March we will come face to face with the Dark Goddess of Kali.  Some fear the power of Kali...and stay away in favour of other softer feminine Goddesses, but to the extent we deny the existence of the power of Kali within us, she becomes a destructive force.  If however, we shine the light on the darkness and we show respect to Kali, she becomes a tremendous, powerful ally in our journey through life and embodiment.  We will meet Kali in the Wild untamed woman, in the parts of us that are not pretty, in our righteous anger and even our passionate rage.  We will use the power of Kali to see us through times of transformation and releasing all that no longer serves us.....whether that is physical "things", relationships or habits and beliefs. Through strong grounded fire flows, we will connect to our inner strength, our truth and stand strong in our authenticity. 

We find our raw power in Kali!

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.  As we dive deeper into the Goddesses, I increasing the time to 3 hours to give us an opportunity to explore via mind, body and spirit.

Abundance and Inner Radiance with Lakshmi SOLD OUT

IMG_0942.JPG

As the third in my Goddess series we meet Lakshmi, the Goddess of Abundance and Good Fortune. 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.  This month we explore how we are with giving and receiving and allowing ourselves to feel abundant on all levels, including our health and love as well as financial.  Often a scarcity mindset or lack of abundance can be caused by not feeling worthy or deserving of "richness", a sense of not being enough or there not being enough to go around.

Through heart opening flows, we will cultivate an attitude of gratitude and inner radiance and allow all the inner riches to flow, we will cultivate deep acceptance and love for all parts of us to allow us to shine our authentic light.

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.  As we dive deeper into the Goddesses, I increasing the time to 3 hours to give us an opportunity to explore via mind, body and spirit.

Awakening Shakti

IMG_0942.JPG

This  month we dive into our Shakti.  Who is she, what does it feel like when we connect to the power of the Divine Feminine, what parts do we embrace and embody easily and what parts do we resist and hide from? We will explore how different aspects of Shakti will show up at different times in our lives and in different aspects of our life? We'll experience the contrast of the feminine warrior to the nurturing mother, from the fire of transformation to the lover of beauty, abundance and wisdom.....  As we awaken; what aspects of us come alive, what aspects have been slumbering?

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 - this month we experience a fabulous new venue and places are limited. The exchange is £32.50.  Looking forward to sharing this time with you.

Acceptance and Inspiration

IMG_0942.JPG

This month we start with Acceptance for ourselves and where we find ourself in our life right now.  We express gratitude and kindness towards ourselves; we reflect on our challenges and achievements and as we move into Autumn, we take our attention inwards, take stock of where we are right now, connect to our inner fire and strength and ignite our passion to find inspiration to take us into this new season.  Expect flowing practices connecting us to the earth and igniting, stoking and preserving our fire.

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.

Strength and Surrender

Strength and Surrender

IMG_0942.JPG

This month we explore the play between strength and surrender.  For a lot of us, through life we have learned to be strong, physically, mentally and emotionally - but in being so strong have we allowed ourself to surrender?  Or for some of us, do we lack belief in ourselves and do not see our true value and so surrender to others needs rather than finding and owning our inner strength.  Through our yoga practice, let's dance between Strength and Surrender and find our own balance place between the 2 that works for us in our life right now.  It doesn't have to be either  / or - we can integrate both.

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.

Connecting to the Divine Feminine

IMG_0942.JPG

Ladies.....let's take an opportunity to retreat to together and connect to different aspects of the divine feminine.  Let's see how she shows up in our yoga flows, restorative poses and guided visualisations and how we can use these different energies in our every day life, off the mat.  We will integrate flows, mudras, mantra, readings from Lakshmi, Saraswati, Durga and Kali....  There are times to surrender to the beauty, abundance and inner radiance of Lakshmi, connect with flow, intuition and creativity of Saraswati, the dynamic power of transformation, and fierce love through Kali and the physical emotional and mental strength, personal empowerment, protection and honesty of Durga.

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.
