feminine embodimnet at its finest
~ deeply nourishing and restorative ~

In this Feminine Embodiment Classes I’m offering practices to support Woman in slowing down and going in, finding into a deeper place in her body and giving it permission to be, to be received, heard and met fully. The classes are based on Somatic Feminine Yoga, Vocal Activation,
Meridian based Yoga and Daoist Chi Gong practices,
Authentic Movement, Dance and Nervous System regulation-wisdom.
IIn this practice we cultivate :
~ Deepening into the base, the pelvic and earth, accessing the downward spiral, the connection into the earth.
~ Fluidity in the body which comes through softening and gentle opening through circular and wave like movements; fluidity awakens sensuality.
~ Your authentic expression, opening into sounding; humming, sighing, growling … leaning into the permission to allow your being to have a sound as you move and feel and are, as you spend time entering your physicality and accessing your essence, your truth, your humanness.
~ Alignment into your vertical, the 3 energy centers; womb - heart -3rd eye; supported be the earth below and heaven above.
~ Daoist practices to strengthen womb/ovarian and heart/breast energies
~ Core Strength
~ Capacity to be with life as it unfolds around us and to feel while staying aligned and grounded.
~ Attending to Seasonal Meridians and the Cyclical Nature of Life
This sounds like a lot but I weave it all into a beautifully guided flow. My guidance is an offering and you’re always invited to listen in and if your body needs something else please follow that guidance. Also Rest is always an option.
I draw on 25 years of practice in dancing, somatic practices like BMC, Contact Improvisation, Daoist practices, Chi Gong, different styles of Yoga and Meditations and movement in nature. I have a diploma in Sacred Feminine Yoga and I’m trained in Ki Yoga which is based on the Chinese meridian system. I weave all of these experiences into my sessions.
SHE SESSIONS formats
*As a single class, a class that stands on its own and is very beneficial for the awakening of the feminine aspect in women. It will offer a taste of The SheSessions.
**As series, usually 8 weeks, where we meet and practice in the same circle of women over 2 moons, deep shifts and changes will happen over those weeks.
A more authentic expression of who you really are will flow into your life.
A new way to be with emotions and feelings; you’ll have more capacity to allow and feel them and not be engulfed or overwhelmed by them.
Your physical body will feel more fluid, comfortable, and pleasurable. Strengthening is happening in an organic and easeful way.
Hormonal Imbalances, period pain, transition into menopause, pregnancy are all greatly supported to come into a healthy and wholesome place.
Blockages through the body of an emotional, energetic or physical nature will soften and open up.
getting in touch with a deeper aliveness in your being.
Supporting an ongoing inquiry and curiosity about living in a female body and the potential arising from that. Tuning into your physicality, the heart, the breasts, the womb, genitals and ovaries and experiencing their energy and potential.
Dropping into the support of the circle of women around you, even so, each woman is practising for herself, there is immense merit of sharing the practice in the structure of the circle. To be feeling the women around you in the practice, each in her own expression and also allowing our hearts and instincts to be touched by each other’s experience of the moment, Every second week there will be space for a sharing circle. For those women, who struggle with trusting other women, this is a great space to heal those wounds.
Experience the benefit of the commitment to self, to showing up every week for the class and reap the benefits of that commitment. Practice the masculine aspects of reliance and structure and experience how that supports your growth.
These classes are for any woman with any level of fitness. Rest is encouraged and supported whenever needed.
A Womanly Reset for the New Year
In the flesh in Mullumbimby.
As I've been devoted to be offering the SheSessions again over the last two months, I'm feeling in my body and being how beneficial this practice is. I'm so much more grounded and present, my breath is deeper, my pleasure pathways are open wider and deeper, there is more aliveness, joy and capacity to be with life in me. I'm feeling nourished and confident.
So yes, I like to share this experience with others in the form of The Un-Taming; 5 consecutive day of early morning practice plus on the last day catered, shared breakfast with sharing and closing ritual to anchor in the goodness.
Next Intensive will be in autumn 2024.
Claudine’s Sessions are a big highlight of my week where I feel myself
as the woman I long to be, empowered, pleasure filled, in my body, freely moving energy.
After the session, I always feel myself moving in the world from a beautifully soft and centred place.
As a practice, it develops my femininity, my openness, my presence, my heart.
I believe every woman would love and benefit from this practice.
The only reason you wouldn’t do it is if the timing of classes didn’t work, and you can always work that out!
Do yourself a delicious favour and do it!!
