“The body, in its infinite wisdom, knows its own way back to wholeness.” Eugene Gendlin
Hello, I’m Gwen. I’m a Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist for Mental Health, Well Women Yoga Therapist and Women’s Health Practitioner based in Fishponds, Bristol. I offer one-to-one sessions as well as group yoga classes and workshops. My approach to yoga and movement is gentle and respectful of the body. Its not about pushing or pulling the body, looking good or achieving the ‘perfect pose’. My aim is to encourage integration and permission for the body to move with ease, in a way that feels nurturing, explorative and joyful.
As a Women’s Health Practitioner I incorporate working with herbs, basic nutrition, natural healing techniques and bodywork. I share teachings about the menstrual cycle, supporting women and girls to better understand the natural rhythms within the cycle and how to harness the energy and benefits they can bring us, working with any issues relating to this. I work with women and girls from maiden years to menarche, motherhood to menopause. I love this work because befriending the natural fluxes in our monthly cycle and life stages supports self acceptance and the confidence to access the innate wisdom and power that these cycles offer us. I can deliver bespoke wellness workshops in your workplace, or in your home with a group of friends.
I am also currently training as a Focusing Practitioner which is a practice of deep Inner Listening: tuning in to the whole of our being, learning to listen to our body and to the intuitive knowledge that resides in us. In all areas of my work I aspire to provide a supportive space where the whole of each and every person is welcomed, the light and the shade, nothing needs to be left outside.
