Islandmums is thrilled to welcome Yogini Kamadevi, also known as Carla Zurcher, to Guernsey from 25 September to 2 October.
Kamadevi is a certified hatha yoga teacher and a holistic wellness practitioner; she regularly provides workshops and retreats in Switzerland, Middle East, India and Africa. Kamadevi integrates a wide variety of massage and practice styles, having trained with a number of well renowned spiritual gurus, particularly in India. However, her practice, teaching and way of life is to attune herself to the natural flow of intuition.
During her massages, she works in a very personalised way with each individual, using body work or talking as needed and relies on her own intuition and awareness to guide her to help people deeper and further.
While in Guernsey she will be offering a hatha yoga class, a workshop on intuition and various appointments for intuitive massage, based at Ziggurat Hotel.
Chief Mummy Officer, Sasha Kazantzeva-Miller met Kamadevi during a trip to India and was inspired by Kamadevi’s approach to life.
‘For many, motherhood is a rite of passage and a new phase of life that sets us on path of discovering who we really are and connecting to our authentic selves. It certainly has been for me and I am so grateful for the many teachers and friends I have met along this path.
‘I am deeply honoured that Kamadevi has accepted the call to come and share her gifts to the Guernsey community and that Islandmums is acting as her local host. It is the beginning of me starting to offer some of what I have learnt, and what has enriched my life on my own journey’ she added.
At Islandmums we believe that the world sorely needs us women to listen to our own inner wisdom and to act upon it. Kamadevi’s trip and teaching is the first in what we intend to be a number of workshops, retreats, and visiting teachers to support, nourish and inspire us to do just that.
Intuitive massage: 75 min
Techniques included in the massage are reiki, deep tissue, chakra cleansing, breath awareness, aromatherapy and shamanic interventions. The session could end up being a consultation with regards to emotional blockages, queries, etc.
This is for anyone seeking wellbeing, inner harmony and mental equanimity. Some people require more physical attention, others psychological and others more spiritual. Generally Kamadevi looks to synchronise between all aspects, unless she detects a specific required focus or if the person asks.
Three daily massage slots from Wednesday 26th to Sunday 30th including 14:00-15:15, 15:45 – 17:00 and 17:30 – 18:45. Please book via Eventbrite.
£70 per 75 min session + Eventbrite booking fees
Hatha Yoga session with Kamadevi hosted by Hot Yoga Guernsey: 90 min
Ha means Sun, Tha moon and Yoga union. Hatha Yoga is about understanding our polarities
and bringing them together. Yoga is a very ancient philosophy from India and the Orient
dedicated to the study of one’s Self and the attentiveness to the Divine. It is a practice of
Asanas (body postures) and Pranayama (breath work) in order to acquire mind equilibrium
and support the deeper states of meditation (soul).
Friday Sep 28th, 9:30 – 11:00, St Peter’s Parish Hall, Les Buttes, St Pierre du Bois, GY7 9SD. Drop-in: £11. You can also purchase 6 ticket voucher books for £55.
Special thanks to Vanessa at Hot Yoga for hosting Kamadevi as part of her regular yoga sessions.
Awakening Intuition Women Circle: 2h 30 min
This is a special circle co-created in collaboration with Michelle Johansen at Female Potential and Sasha Kazantseva-Miller from Islandmums open to Female Potential pod clients.
Awakening Intuition is a nourishing active meditation practice aimed at welcoming our intuitive capacities and embracing the sacred feminine. You will receive inspiration about how to be in-tune with your innate intuition and welcome the wisdom that is harnessed from within. The session will include an intention and discussion period, aimed at connecting to our energetic communication and helping participants to express what we perceive and truly feel.
The very word intuition has to be understood. We know the word ‘tuition’; tuition comes from outside, somebody teaches you. Intuition means something that arises within your being; it is your potential. That’s why it is called intuition. Unless you have your own wisdom, your own vision, your own clarity, your own eyes to see, you will not be able to understand the mystery of existence – Osho.
Sunday September 30th, 9:30 – 12:00 am. Please liaise with Michelle or Sasha for bookings.
Special thanks to Genevieve Langford (Hotel Ziggurat), Grace Galliot (the Natural Health Clinic), Michelle Johansen (Female Potential) and Vanessa-Leigh Willis (Hot Yoga) for helping make this trip possible.
