August Newsletter

Sat Naam dear all, 

I have not sent out a newsletter in July, as I've been kept on my toes and challenged by work-related demands with very little time to myself to do anything apart from keeping up our crazy patio-jungle that's an explosion of green right now. 

July saw some tough things happening here, and saw some beautiful things happening - as life goes.

Leicester has seen a much prolonged lockdown compared to the rest of the UK (4 weeks longer), and so not much has changed yet to the way in which I'm offering my services: all treatments, Closing the Bones ceremonies and CtB trainings, and all in-person work has still been non-existent, and all yoga classes will stay online for the foreseeable future (see more below).

I do hope that I can slowly start offering treatments and Closing the Bones sessions again in the near future, but much will depend on the expected 'second wave'.

But there are still our daily Zoom yoga classes (to which we've now also added a weekly Pregnancy yoga class), and there is another beautiful upcoming Rebozo Self-Massage & Self-Wrapping Red Tent

I have been communicating back and forth with Annelies Tavernier from As (Belgium) about our previously cancelled Closing the Bones training, and we were looking at the end of September (26 & 27 September - see to run the training, but just then Belgium went back to much stricter regulations and is now also on the UK's no-go list, so unless things change profoundy, that too will not be possible. I will keep everyone informed.

We are looking to run a Closing the Bones training in the Autumn near Leeds/Bradford (UK), but here too much depends on the pandemic...

And my Instagram account and FB page are still teeming with offers and discounts every week! I'll include a selection below, but for those on social media, it's by far the easiest place to always find all current offers and discounts that I'm running on Rebozos, malas, homemade and Neal's Yard products, etc. If you're not on social media but would still like to be kept up-to-date about these offers then do please let me know, as I could send them via email or Whatsapp to you if you wanted that.
Rebozo Self-Massage & Self-Wrapping Women's Circle
Ever since the first beautiful and nurturing Rebozo Self-Massage & Self-Wrapping Red Tent during the GBKY festival, I have been running these sessions once or twice a month, with women joining from all from all over the world, from all walks of life and backgrounds, from so many different cultures, and from so many age groups ranging from teenagers and young adults to women in the peri-menopause and having entered those beautiful wisdom years of the crone. Many women have been joining nearly every circle.

I have my August Rebozo Women's Circle coming up this coming Friday 14 August, 8-10.30pm GMT - and I have a few last spaces available. It's not a good idea to wait til the last day to register, as almost each workshop has been booked full. 

For all info, you can go to the Facebook-event or the folder that you can find on my Workshops webpage.

And it's also not too late to order your rebozos if you want to use authentic ones. 

Women trying to conceive, women having recently given birth, women recently having miscarried. Women learning how to wrap and massage themselves when they are menstruating to help eliminate period pains. Women learning tools to help with their IBS. Women finding themselves again. Women falling in love with themselves again. Women honouring themselves again. Women rising up and holding the space for other women to rise up... Women diving deep into their pain, and coming back out on the other side. Women being vulnerable and real among other women.

Videos can be on or off, so you will be sharing as much as you are comfortable with.

I will be introducing you to the Rebozo or Manta, a shawl traditionally used in Closing the Bones or Cerrada-ceremonies. Traditionally offered during the postpartum (or to heal a miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, loss), Rebozo work as offered in Closing the Bones is also used to support us when menstruating, to mark major transitions in a woman’s life, such as the menarche, marriage, divorce, job or home changes, (peri)menopause, hysterectomy, … , to help with fertility problems, as well as for treatment of anxiety, shock, trauma, PTSD, ADD, autism, or sensory over-stimulation. There is nearly no end to its applications.

If you ask me to name what has changed my life most profoundly in the last 4 years, it's these Rebozos and what they allow me to do for myself and others. The work they allow me to do. The feedback this cloth can give me as soon as I wrap it around myself or someone else...

For me, the humble Rebozo or Manta symbolizes both the fabric and the tight weave of Sisterhood: it provides support, comfort, softness, the feeling of being held, and a chrysalis-like space for the many transformations we as women go through. While being rocked and wrapped in a Rebozo helps a woman to find her own self and center again and seals up any energy leakages, being in a circle of women can do the same thing for us. Now imagine the strength of those 2 combined…

So we will gather online, share (if wished) in a Women's Circle, and nourish ourselves with beautiful Rebozo massage techniques for the entire body from head to feet, with a tender womb-space massage and with Rebozo wrapping on ourselves, holding space for stagnated energy and stuck emotions to be released gently but powerfully.

I’ll show you several ways in which you can massage your entire body with a Rebozo (and even use it for stretches in your yoga practice), teach you to wrap your own head, torso, abdomen and hips, and show you some hands-on massage techniques for the abdomen and hips, helping to release tension from the abdominal fascia as well as adrenaline deposits on the hip bones.

Bring a Rebozo (or, if you don't have one, you can try a pashmina-type fabric (not too slippery though!)) to the session, and some massage oil and a small towel. The cloth you work with should be around 2-2.5m long, and 50-60cm wide.

If you would like to work with a Mexican Rebozo but you don't have one, you can purchase them from my webshop and I can parcel them out in time for the workshop. - click further to Rebozos/Mantas. I have some beautiful discounted combos of open and close weaves that are perfect for the work we do in these workshops (and what you can then keep doing at home).

If you can't make this date/time, feel free to get in touch to be kept up to date about any future workshops of this kind.
Daily Zoom Yoga classes during this lockdown

For 20 weeks now (this new week being the 21st) I have been running 5 weekly Zoom classes, Monday to Friday.

(this is how you'll see me :) )

The first 3 days of the week we repeat the same kriya & meditation, so you get to experience a kriya and meditation much deeper should you want to (of course you can just join only once!).
* Monday 7-8.30pm
* Tuesday 7-8.30pm
* Wednesday mid-morning 10.30-12

And then we have the 2 shorter (45 minute) classes:
* Thursdays 12-12.45pm: lunchtime class
* Fridays 4.30-5.15pm: weekly meditation class

--- these are the UK (GMT) times, add 1 hour for e.g. Belgium, the Netherlands, France, ...

You can always check this again on the Class Schedule page of my website.

We now ALSO have a Pregnancy Yoga Class on Zoom every week, on Mondays from 3.30 to 5pm GMT, in a very small and intimate group. Payment works per 5 consecutive weeks (£45 for 5 weeks). No experience in yoga is required, any pregnant ladies (past 12 weeks pregnancy) are welcome. You can find more information on pregnancy yoga (including your right to ask for time off from work for these sessions) here: .

I will be continuing with this schedule for the foreseeable future, and I am taking into account that this might be the new normal for another several months still, as resuming in-person group classes with physical distancing measures and regulations around airflow, PPE, etc. would be extremely difficult in the smaller venues we use (especially at the Space to Breathe and my home). I don't think it's feasible at all at the moment to resume any in-person classes. And so-called "hybrid teaching" (some of you in person in the room, others on Zoom) is something I won't do, as I would personally feel that I'm serving neither group to my best capacity if my attention has to be divided between people physically present, and people online. I feel that both media come with totally different needs for teaching, with different ways of holding space and being present to you all. So while I very much appreciate that Zoom classes are not the ideal scenario and I would love to see and teach you in an in-person setting again, my feeling is that our current Zoom classes are still the best possible solution given the alternatives, and will probably be for a (good?) while to come.

And so even though we cannot be physically together, I have found that our online classes are allowing very powerful work to take place, and I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity to continue to teach.

If you like to join us and you're wondering about the payment structure: this can be found on the Prices page but I'll add it here again for ease of reference:

We are carrying on with the same prices as for our normal 90 min. Zoom group classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, but instead of access to 1 class a week you will get access to ALL 3 of these classes on Zoom every week!

  • Single week: £10
  • Series of 4 consecutive weeks: £35
  • Series of 8 consecutive weeks: £65
  • Concessions: £28 for 4-week series; £55 for 8-week series; £7.50 single week.

Additionally, for the 2 shorter (45 min.) Zoom classes on Thursday and Friday, you pay 1 fee but get to do both these classes if you want. Price is £5 per week for these 2 sessions (or £4.50 concession fee).

You will get all information to log in sent to your email after you've paid via BACS (bank details are in the green box on the Prices page - I can provide Belgian euro-account details for people in Europe or PayPal account details for people elsewhere).

New Webpage for Homemade Skincare Products

I'm very happy to let you know that I'm finally reworking the webpage for my homemade skincare products so that you can much more easily find products organised together in related categories:

🌺Body Care (Body Washes, Body Lotions, Body/Massage Oils, Deodorants)
🌺Facial Skincare (Facial Masks, Toners, Facial Oils, Face Lotions, Facial Washes)
🌺Hair Care (Shampoos, Hair Oils)
🌺Hand Care (Hand Washes, Hand Sanitizer, Dishwashing Liquid)
🌺Room sprays
🌺Bug Repellents
🌺Stretch-Mark, Scars, Blemishes & Skin-Problems
🌺Aromatherapy Section
🌺Herbal Blend section

The new organisation of the page is already live -- I still have to work on font sizes and layout for a more pleasant visual experience (my husband thinks it looks horrendous still!), but searching for products has already become much easier now (and as I did this whole makeover at midnight on a Saturday, I don't know when I'll next have time for further work on it, so for now, it's usable!)

And as always, products are still fully custom-made just for your order, so that you get the best suited product for you and your family.

AND I have beautiful new labels for my homemade skincare products (I'm sticking with old-school handwritten for now): 

Postage to other countries is easy and straightforward too (I send out parcels to Belgium nearly weekly for example; packages arrive within 4-7 working days in Europe).

Product of the Month is definitely my new new essential oil blend available for this heatwave / hot Summer weather. Ultimate refreshing grapefruit and bergamot (the last one not pictured as I didn't have one), combined with beautiful cardamom which is known to soothe and cool the senses. Available in spray form (£15) to cool you down when on the go or outside, or in a 10ml pure blend to add to your diffuser, body oil, ... (£14). This also be found on my homemade product webpage as "Summer cool-down" under Aromatherapy Blends.
And on my Instagram account I publish (mostly on Thursdays) a discounted oil blend each week at -10%. 

1-2-1 Sessions

You can of course still book private Skype or Zoom sessions which can include:

* yoga classes

* health consultations

* consultations around fertility, pregnancy, birth

* pre- and postnatal yoga

* Kids/Family Yoga

* Meditation & Pranayam sessions 

* coaching 

With restriction slowly easing, we might be able to take these sessions from online to in-person if you live nearby and have a garden (I don't have one) or if we meet in the nearby Fosse Recreation Grounds at the top of my road or in the Rally along the canal...

As for the private yoga classes, this is also a great time to invest in doing a 5- or 10-session series (these are always discounted compared to individual sessions) on a specific topic to explore further, or something that will specifically serve you right now if you e.g. suffer from anxiety or feel overwhelmed.

A full list of topics you can choose from for these 5 or 10 session series is listed here but below are some that might specifically be appropriate right now for some people - with the most popular currently being ‘Authentic Relationships & Intimacy’.

Update on Closing the Bones Trainings

So as already stated above, I have been communicating back and forth with Annelies Tavernier from As (Belgium) about our previously cancelled Closing the Bones training, and we were looking at the end of September (26 & 27 September - see to run the training, but just then Belgium went back to much stricter regulations and is now also on the UK's no-go list, so unless things change profoundy, that too will not be possible. I will keep everyone informed.

We are looking to run a Closing the Bones training in the Autumn near Leeds/Bradford (UK), but here too much depends on the pandemic...

One thing I LOVE about Neal's Yard Remedies are their BOOKS! They publish the most fantastic books on Natural Health - on herbs, on aromatherapy, on nutrition, on massage ... These books are NOT promoting their products. Instead they are giving you information on health, nutrition, aromatherapy profiles and safety, ... PLUS all the information you need to make your OWN recipes for skincare, for herbal concoctions, for food, etc. I'm running a small promotion on 2 wonderful smaller books from their series:

- Looking Good and Feeling Younger (normal RRP £8.50)
- Little Book of Essential Oils (normal RRP £3.50)

I have 1 set of both books available for just £9.50 instead of £12! Of course you can also buy them both individually, and I have most of the other bigger books in the second picture available too.

These felt-padded EO lockets are always popular, so I'm offering them once more. If you buy one of the following NYR 10ml essential oil blends -- Meditation Blend £17.50, De-Stress £13.50 (not pictured) or Women's Balance £15.50 -- PLUS the stainless steel Rose locket (that's the only one I have currently available) £12.50 each (or £13.50 if you want to include the chain) which comes with a set of 10 (washable) differently coloured felt pads on which you'd simply put a few essential oil drops -- you get a FREE 5ml (!) Immune-System-boosting essential oil blend that I'll make for you and your family especially (taking into account whether you have small children, pets, ...). (Of course you can buy the oil blends and lockets separately as well at the prices indicated above). These lockets are a fantastic and very economic way to use your essential oils or oil blends, AND safe around pets and small children where diffusers often aren't (they are only safe depending on the oils used; the age of your kids; or the type of pets you have).

All of these offers have to be ordered through email or direct message - they are not as such available on my webshop.

Full Moon Info monthly available on the blog
Every month about 7-10 days before the full moon I try to write a long blog post (the only ones I still write...) on that full moon's effects, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Meridians as well as Ayurveda and Yogic Knowledge.
Just remember to go to every month to find all the information ready for you!
Where to find us on Social Media?
* My Instagram account is the easiest place to always find all current offers (much easier to find things there than on Facebook). 

* Shuniya Kundalini Yoga Facebook page: for class & activity announcements, special discounts, seva opportunities for workshops or retreats, posts on (kundalini) yoga, pregnancy, health, nutrition, ...

* Sikhs(') Nurturing Nature Facebook page, blogwebsite page: the places to be for caring for our environment and for all homemade products. On the Facebook page I share lots of posts and information on how you can reduce your carbon footprint, reduce your use of plastic, use products that are healthy for you AND Mother Earth, how you can make your own products, ... and generally try and help raise awareness on taking care of our Mother Earth and walking lightly on Her.
