Gentle Yoga is both a practice and a state of being. Yoga exercise is a small part of yoga practice and yoga as a state of being may be experienced anytime anywhere.
This evening is an exploration of yoga of the heart and mind. It is a tantric path of yoga and draws its inspiration from a weaving of several paths including; Buddhism, Druidry and the Goddess. Woven throughout the talk are short meditations, creating space to experience the potency of gentleness in our lives.
This presentation will take place during the great festival of Maha Shavarati dedicated to the Goddess Durga, which celebrates each of her nine aspects. Wednesday 2nd October is Kushmanda’s day. It is said that she created the universe through the radiance of her smile, so tonight we will explore Gentleness as a key to our innate power and creativity.
Thalia has lived in Glastonbury since 1990. She is a Yogini, an Ardbandrui and Bard of the Druid Clan of Dana, ‘An Clann Draoidheachta Danan’. She is also a Bard of OBOD. Interest in Druidry began in 1985 whilst studying at Falmouth School of Art. Her Druid Grove, the Avalon White Hart explores the Avalonian dreamtime in a quest for the Aquarian Grail. She ordained in 2010 as a Priestess in the Fellowship of Isis.
Thalia is a yoga teacher and artist. Yoga became the centre of her life in 1966 at the age of five. Initially taught by her mother, she practised Iyengar Yoga until she discovered Satyananda Yoga in 2013. Between 2015-2017 Thalia trained to teach Yoga at The Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales, under the directorship of Swami Nischalananda Saraswati. She received her spiritual name of Chitrini whilst on the course. As a teacher she uses bardic skills to share her passion for gentle Yoga attuned to the rhythms of nature.
As we become attuned to the rhythms of nature, we may awaken to our essential nature. We are welcomed home to ourselves. This is the aim of Thalia’s teaching in Three Hills School of Yoga and the Grove of the Avalon White Hart.
