Goddess, Ritual and Rise - celebrate my birthday with me!

Copy of Happy International Womens Day.png

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.

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.

Sacred Women's Circle - What is the Sacred Medicine my Soul is asking for? April.

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, Reiki Master, Depth Coach and Priestess 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!

Limited to a max of 12 women. Booking is via Fringe on the link below. Any problems please email me allison@inspireyoga.co.uk

Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari as Kundalini Shakti

Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari as Kundalini Shakti

IMG_0942.JPG

Goddess, this month we explore, embody and integrate the energy of Lalita Tripura Sundari, one of the Goddesses of Love; who embodies desire as the universal creative force. Desire, Kama is always the first seed of life. Lalita personifies desire in all of it’s form, starting with the cosmic desire that impels the formless unborn to explode into forms.

The most dynamic expression of Lalitas power is as Kundalini Shakti, the evolutionary power that sleeps at the base of the spine until awakened by the Goddess.

We’ll explore manifestation and using desire to bring the unmanifest into the manfiest, the formlessness into form. We’ll explore this through creative flows, mudras, invocations, guided visualisation and more.

Lalita also represents the Queenly embodiment of feminine authority, beauty and creativity and she embodies spiritual bliss and self realisation.

As usual we will start the afternoon with a poem, a reading, discussion or myth around the theme, before starting to open and move our body, building into creative flows before moving into deeper, longer held poses and ending in a delicious yoga nidra or guided visualisation.

As we work with one of the Goddesses of Love wear your favourite yoga clothes!

The exchange is £37.50.  

Looking forward to sharing this time with you.

Connect to your Souls Truth with Goddess Isis

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.

About Allison:

Allison is a Senior Vinyasa flow teacher, Archetypes Coach, Therapist, Reiki Master and Priestess. She has been working with the goddess energy for many years weaving the Eastern and Western psychologies, and creates workshops and events with her own style of mixing the deep soul medicine with equal measures of sacred ritual and light-heartedness. She is passionate about empowering women to connect to their truth and living their truth and works with the goddess energy in a way that is both mystical and magical and practical for every day modern living.

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

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.

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 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.

*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.

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.

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.  

Looking forward to sharing this time with you.

*New Class*  Thursday evening flow - Saffron Walden

*New Class* Thursday evening flow - Saffron Walden

Allison 7.jpg

At long last, I am delighted to be starting a new class in Saffron Walden. This weekly class (Thursday evenings) 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 evenings 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.

Together we will dive into inspiring, creative, dynamic and nourishing flows with a different theme each week.  Some weeks maybe physically 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.

As I am off to Ibiza to run my last retreat of 2018 mid November, the first few classes are bookable by class - so you can try it out and see if it is for you.

Thereafter, it will be block bookings (at a reduced price).

Class price: £15.

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.

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.
