There is no end to any movement
We are a mind-body movement group of professionals who work around the world to support and empower others to live a fulfilled, happy and joyful life.
Molly and Nid joined forces in 2015 to through a mutual friend and passion for mind-body movement. They share their stories about how mind-body movement has supported their life journeys and brought them to sharing with others.
As a dancer Nid grew up working with her body, yet she struggled with depression in this career as the body was never sufficient alone. Her solution was to become a workaholic lawyer where she became lost in her rational mind; panic attacks ensued. After a head injury, Nid healed herself through holistic approaches. Her key strategy was to use her body's expressions (symptoms & emotions) to measure her recovery. She shares her lessons through her teaching, as we can only ever genuinely teach from lessons that we have experienced.
Nid teaches movement from the place of conscious awareness. To empower others to discover the tools of how the body and mind talk to one another, which helps us hear our unconscious and larger self. All movement must come from a sensation of ease, fluidity and stability - her core themes. She keeps group numbers small to ensure each person gets the movement awareness that they need for their whole being.
Nid works mostly with retreats and private clients. Her work draws many with long term pain or health issues to discover how to enjoy their body and use conscious awareness to understand their whole being for a full life. For those in perfect health she loves to challenge your edge, face your perceived limitations and expand your full potential!
Nid's approach to movement:
From the breath we can deepen into ourselves, relax, soften and find support. The principles of postural alignment aid the skeleton in supporting the body with less muscular effort. Muscles that are supple and responsive at the right times and in the correct manner in movement. Through the use of gravity we can enjoy movement with connection to the earth, play with resistance and use its support when weak. Proprioception teaches us about our relationships with the world and others. The spaces between body parts, thoughts and action all direct how conscious we are of our lives.
Molly attended her first yoga class, seeking stress relief and exercise, as an anxious teenager with disordered eating, worrying about exams. She dipped in and out of yoga practice for the next few years whilst at college and traveling, coming back to the practice when things became stressful. Once working full time, her practice became more regular and she started to recognise the impact that yoga had upon all aspects of my life. This prompted her to complete my first 200 hour teacher training in 2013, and has continued training ever since.
Having benefitted from the therapeutic impact of yoga in her own life, she recently completed a diploma in Yoga Therapy with Yogacampus so she can offer tailored and bespoke yoga practices to help individuals heal on all levels - physical, mental or emotional.
For Molly, yoga has demonstrated that our body, thoughts, feelings and mind are capable of changing and evolving through a regular practice. She believes that by practicing again and again, and allowing the practice to evolve, yoga can take us on a journey of self-discovery, acceptance and growth.
First and foremost a student herself, she is driven to share any or all of what she has learned so far to anyone who is curious. Yoga is for everyone, all abilities, bodies and levels of experience.
Molly's Approach to Movement:
Molly's classes encourage students to listen to, and work sensitively with their own bodies and nature. By cultivating awareness of how the practice affects the body, mind and spirit – students create a process of self-enquiry, allowing them to reconnect with their own inner teacher. Her intention is to create an environment in which students are empowered and inspired to find their own expressions of yoga.
