Holistic Wellness For High-Performing And Busy Females Who Keep Delaying Their Own Total Health & Happiness... So they can feel rested, indulged, informed, nurtured and empowered again!
FEEL GOOD WEDNESDAYS
" As a mother & wife at home, female worker at work and a 'woman' in society, I have been always a warrior without taking any time for peace. But this attitude dragged me to the edge of a cliff with a restless past. In pain, burnt out and angry, I was about to lose my mental and physical health between home, work, parenting, my relationships, endless tasks and responsibilities. I was profoundly failing to achieve life fulfilment and happiness between my fights.
But then, yoga & mindfulness saved my life!"
Today, I am surrounded by more and more frustrated and exhausted female individuals who perform at high levels of competence in many roles, but along the way, often put their own interests and well-being away. I hear them. Thus, I've designed FEEL GOOD WEDNESDAYS to enable these female bodies and their busy minds to feel themselves again - rested, calm, connected, empowered, loved, content, happy and healthy.
Let's redefine the role of WOMAN together!
You are invited to My Sanctuary Room to feel good again!

HOW YOGA CAN HELP
HIGH-PERFORMING & BUSY WOMEN TO LIVE THEIR LIFE FULLY?
Breathing exercises can teach women how to stimulate the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PSNS - responsible from rest & digest response in the body) and regulate the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis (HPA axis - our central stress response system). Thus, improving immunity, defeating the side effects of stress, counteracting the side effects of burnout and PTSD, promoting positive health such as uplifting and energising the body, shifting the mood, prevention of insomnia, chronic fatigue, major depressive disorders, reducing anxiety levels, cooling the body during hot flushes, pain management, better digestion and more may be possible. It is even said that some regular breathing practices can slow down the effects of aging process at the cellular level.
Mindfulness & Meditation
Mindfulness can increase women's awareness of their own reality and their needs during aging. The holistic approach of yogic principles can make women more resilient in daily life, in particular during challenging times. Meditation can help improve focus, concentration and other brain functions to see and undo the dysfunctional negative pattern of thinking and emotions, strengthen memory, help increase awareness of the self, helps to combat with daily stress, burn-out and many stress related symptoms in the body.
Mindfulness Meditation can make the process of problem solving easier for women to be more tolerant of any difficult situation and to cope with them in a practical way more purposefully, happily and mindfully- so they can approach the problems calmly and create functional solutions creatively in their career, community and relationships with themselves and others.
Yoga Flows & Postures
Yoga flows can help regulate hormones in the endocrine system and burn excess adrenaline and cortisol, improve cardiovascular (heart) health, release joints, promote better sleep quality, uplift the mood and cultivate positive emotions, improve sexual and physical quality of life.
Long hold of the yoga postures can help improve strength, flexibility and a sense of balance in the body & mind. They have a tremendous positive effect in the skeletal (bone health) and muscular systems where the aging process has a huge effect in a female body, especially after the age of 40 due to oestrogen level dramatically begins to fall. Yoga postures raise awareness about a sense of presence. Forward bends can help inward turn and relieve stress, anxiety, irritability and rage. Inversions against gravity can increase blood circulation and stimulate hormonal glands. Gentle backbends can increase breathing and open the heart centre, producing a feeling of positivity and lightness.
Through restorative prcatices, women can unlock their potential of creating their own refuge to slow-down, take a pause and just BE.
Deep relaxation & Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) also work at PSNS & HPA axis level and can help combat fatigue and insomnia by promoting deep rest after a night of tossing and punching the pillows, prepare the body and mind for a good night sleep, stimulate the rest & digest response of the body to repair and recharge.
Restorative forms of yoga can bring a sense of calmness, peace and relaxation to the body and mind, relieve joint and back pain, promote natural healing qualities in the body, lower body temperature through PSNS in the body - hence may sooth vasomotor symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats and may be useful to aid recovery; help sleeping better and reduce anxiety and depression. It is also an antidote to stress-related ill-health symptoms.
Ayurveda & TCM
Yoga philosophy can guide women towards a deeper spiritual / personal growth or transformation to develop their values and purposes in life. By practicing this thousands-year-old wisdom, women can reunite with their truth, achieve emotional stability and enjoy life, merge with their wiser selves, and eventually blossom into their Second Spring.
Ayurveda & Traditional Chinese Medicine practices places great emphasis on prevention diseases and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. Knowledge of Ayurveda & TCM enables women to understand how to create and support this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to their own individual constitution, and how to make lifestyle change to bring about and maintain this balance holistically. While the modern science views many female symptoms as the advancement of aging, Ayurveda & TCM view this as the body’s wisdom slowing down the aging process to bring a new balance in our lives.
MY LAST BLOG POST
YOGA & MENOPAUSE
The aging process of women normally accelerates tremendously in their 40s and over compared to their early years. A woman's body responds to aging dramatically (especially through menopause), while a man's body responds more slowly throughout his life. This is because the fluctuating oestrogen level (female hormone) with aging is a major concern and manifests itself impressively in the menopausal stages. They can profoundly affect a woman’s physical, psychological and psychosocial constitution after the age of 40. However, NO WOMEN IS TOO YOUNG FOR MENOPAUSE, including teenagers.
Yoga for Women classes are also integrated yoga sessions helping women over the age of 40 as well as younger women who are already going through menopause inc. premature-, early-, peri- and postmenopause. They are also designed to inform, empower and nurture these women by holding introductory wellbeing courses, group workshops, regular weekly classes and private one-to-one sessions through yoga & mindfulness practices.
These sessions help women develop a sense of balance and harmony inside and outside to achieve different goals for their overall health and wellbeing. Since they are designed with the needs of menopausal women, it is extra beneficial to practice with a dedicated teacher in customised yoga classes exclusievly for women. As an acredited Menopause Yoga teacher my mission is to help these women have their meno-symptoms under control and enjoy the life on & off the yoga mat fully toward their second spring.
