“This is a feminine yoga to meet us and nourish us exactly where we are right now: every day of our lives as women, every day of our menstrual cycles, and every day of the times in our lives when we are beyond our cycles – this yoga is adapting and adjusting to our needs.
If you have ever felt that what you are looking for is a yoga that respects and honours you as the woman you are in this very moment, then this yoga is for you – Welcome home to yourself” – Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
Women’s Yoga is a way of practising yoga that honours our ever-changing moods, cycles and rhythms. Bringing to the mat who we are today, right now, and moving, exploring from a place of awareness of that knowledge of what is present for us today.
I have been practicing yoga asana since childhood, over the years developing my understanding of the practice to align with the wisdom and intuition of my own body. I have been greatly inspired by my dear friend and incredible teacher Uma Dinsmore-Tuli who has helped me to listen further to my own intuitive wisdom and honour the cycles and rhythms of life that arise naturally. I did Uma’s Well Woman Yoga Therapy (Womb Yoga) Teacher Training in 2012, and have since then had the pleasure of assisting regularly on this training, enriching and deepening my personal practice and being inspired by the stories of the community of women who are sharing together in this yoga.
I also am a student of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of love and compassion) and allow my practise and offering of yoga to be deeply centred in the heart.
I am excited to have this opportunity to regularly meet together in a circle as sisters. Come join us at this new weekly home for Women’s Yoga – Tuesdays 11.15am-12:30pm at the beautiful Life Centre, Islington, starting 28th March.
Sivani Mata Francis
All women are warmly invited to come share in this late morning offering of yogic practises to connect with our feminine source power. Arrive and lie down for complete relaxation and nourishment with the meditative journey that is Total Yoga Nidra. Then explore intuitive movement (yoga asana), potent gestures (yoga mudra), and other practises that respond to the needs of the group, as well as honour our cyclical nature, the elements and the essence of being woman.
Maha Shakti ki JAI!
