New Year, New everything!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year and a great 2019!

I have been busy over the festive break, changing my name from “Jess Yoga and Wellness” to “Jai Mā Yoga”, finding new venues and times for all classes, and even having a bit of family and chill time!!

The new name is to mark my finishing my British Wheel of Yoga 300 hour yoga teaching certificate. Jai Mā is Sanskrit for , roughly translated, “in praise of the Universal Mother!”. (There is never just one interpretation of Sanskrit.) This actually refers to Mothers in a broad sense , so the archetype of the Divine Mother , Mother Earth, and actual Mothers and Mothers – to- be, who I particularly love to work with!

So, I am very pleased to publish my new timetable and newly updated website, and share the new venues for my classes, X10 fitness in Kingsteignton and Pretzel Studio in Bovey Tracey! Click on the meus for more info.

Well Woman Yoga mini retreat Sun 4th Nov

I have two spaces left on this Sunday’s workshop, 10am-1pm at King St Studios, Newton Abbot. This is a lovely, flowing, easeful yoga style suitable for women at all stages of life. You are welcome if you are pregnant/ postsnatal/ perimenopausal/ looking to conceive, and I aim for you to come away feeling inspired and more balanced! We will focus on pelvic floor awareness and gentle abdominal toning; practices that cultivate Shakti (female energy); pair work to get a great stretch and feel supported by a partner; and blissful restorative poses where we stay in one position for around 7 minutes just letting the weight of the body sink into the earth and receiving deep rest.

There will be tea and homemade vegan cake to finish, with a chance to chat.

£25. Book via jessyogawellness@icloud.com or call me 07707297316

New baby massage and postnatal recovery yoga course

I’m looking forward to meeting a new crop of babies and Mamas on Weds 17th Oct for a 5 week course ( no session Weds 7th Nov).

The Birthlight approach to massaging babies in the first three months is unique; we combine relaxed holds, gentle movement and breath work for Mums with a nurturing and effective massage routine.

This is such a precious time with your newborn 💞

£45 for 5 weeks including tea and treats before each class and massage oil. Free, easy parking and access. At my home studio in Ogwell.

There are 2 spaces remaining 💛

Well Woman Yoga:

A lovely, enjoyable, nourishing form of yoga, inspired by my recent training with Francoise Freedman of Birthlight.

Blissful Bumps Pregnancy yoga workshop:

One space remaining: Sat 18th Aug 3-5pm £15

I will be found at the beginning of the Summer holidays at Sundara Festival, working in the kids area, and at Santosa Living Yoga and Bhakti camp at the end of the holidays, offering massage and teaching yoga to the smallest campers! I recommend either of these as a way of delving deeper into the many forms of yoga there are, as well as dance, singing, spirituality, holistic therapies and bodywork, and just plain old fun and connection. Oh and the best hot outdoor shower ever, overlooking Glastonbury Tor!
