A women's path to health and well-being.
An ancient path for modern women.
Yoga should be taught using the Ayurvedic principals and knowledge, using the chakra, the energy centres which are like chapters in a book, or seven keys, the beginning of a journey, the beginning of your dreaming.

I do hope at some point in the course you start to value the gift.
Is it helping/healing you?
Women's wisdom is worth more than gold.
Yet it is often given freely.
For me, for you, for the women of the future.
Start the course for free and see what you think.
After buying a 10 week pass I recieved this text from one of my lovely students yesterday.
Just investing in my future while I have some money! Thanks Namaste Mary."
How do you wish to invest in your future?
I have focused on bringing in the nourishing, feminine practices. Simple through to advanced yoga, including Hatha, Flow, Yin & Restorative yoga, more than thirty meditations, self- massage, crystal meditations, essential oils, the beautiful hand gestures, all interconnected with breathwork or maybe breath relaxation is a better word.
This is the surface layer, the teaching meditations and yoga classes will encourage you to gradually move deeper and discover what gives you joy in life. The teachings are practical and inspiring, giving you the time, to really think and then make plans and all the time the physical practice is making you stronger and more flexible

I encourage you to cook & eat more vegetarian food. Bird Song is in part a vegetarian cook book.
Take your time, you do not need to become a vegetarian or vegan overnight. You may want to eat meat. It is always your choice.

A dreaming story.
Miwa Gawaian tells how the Spirit Woman Korrobori came to Earth from the sky, and created the world as a place to rest during her travels. She created trees and plants, to provide food, beauty and shelter. Then she created two sisters to look after the world she had crafted. She named the sisters Wurrata, the Beautiful One, and Wiridjiribin, the Rememberer. Korrobori showed the sisters all around the world she had made, and taught them which plants they could use for food, medicine, and other things.
When the time cam for Korrobori to return home, the sisters were sad, and begged her not to leave. Korrobori took her magic staff and planted it into the ground, where it turned into a beautiful white flower. She named it Miwa Gawaian, although this flower is now known as the White Waratah. Korrobori told the sisters that if they needed her, they could always talk to her through the Miwa Gawaian. She would hear them and come to help them.
The course is the "yoga" of everything I have learnt and experienced in my life.

In the beginning I was organising a timetable and ‘doing’ the classes & meditations, I found that once I chose a class and repeated it rather than mixing them daily the connection came. Feet rooted
in standing postures, body heavy and pulled into the earth in laying postures, tingling….
Has felt like I’m wrapped in a warm cosy blanket, slowed down a bit and calmer.
