Wellness for all
Updated: Mar 31, 2021
Whilst away I really dug deep to think about how I wanted to use this platform, my yoga classes and all of the work that I do. I came to the conclusion that:
We all deserve to be well, and through this platform I hope to offer everyone some tools to cultivate a greater sense of wellbeing.
Two things I would love to fix within the wellness industry are that:
We have forgotten the origins of indigenous healing practices, and rarely honour the heritage or culture
The Wellness industry is not all inclusive
I could write a list of everything I feel is wrong, but as Gandhi says “be the change you want to see in the world” and through this platform and during my classes I aim to do just that.
For me it is important to offer my students a space where they feel able to connect with themselves, this surpasses race, age, gender, ability or status. Yoga is a space to process difficult emotions, not just the easier ones. We all need space to breath and cultivate calm and so all humans will feel welcome.
Yoga surpasses the physical asana practice that is done on the mat. Many people only associate yoga with being physical exercise and are completely unaware of the philosophy that underpins it. My classes will be structured around philosophy and how it can be applied in the modern world. I aim to appreciate and amplify the voice of its origins. Yoga offers us spiritual guideposts which help us navigate our experience of the world both internally and externally.
Self care isn't an indulgence, it is a necessity and many people who have experienced trauma or difficulties do not have the financial access to healing practices such as yoga. It should not be available for just those with privilege. I aim to make my classes accessible to all. For those without the means to pay, please send an email to me directly.
As I said above: we all deserve to be well, and through this platform I hope to offer everyone some tools to cultivate a greater sense of wellbeing.
