Devi Shakti aims to liberate women from pain, discomfort, poor health, and a sense of not feeling like themselves.
Women dealing with hormonal imbalances, grief, trauma, loss of identity and lack of self-confidence is common amongst today’s hectic society.
Devi Shakti uses a variety of healing modalities to help women better address the symptoms of these concerns including; period pain, irregular or absent periods, irritability or PMS, acne, breast swelling, fatigue, headaches, bloating, fluid retention, weight gain, cravings or binge eating, digestive problems, mid-cycle pain, infertility, stress and trauma related symptoms…
The goal of Devi Shakti is to go deeper within, beyond the symptoms, addressing the root causes of why such conditions may commonly arise in the individual.
Many women aren’t aware the effects stress have on their hormones. Devi Shakti classes are designed to lower stress hormones, improving quality of sleep, digestion & over all hormone production
Often there are a number of underlying factors contributing to hormone imbalance. Devi Shakti classes directly target the organs and glands that promote healthy hormone production
Pain, bloat, irritability or discomfort during your cycle is not normal and can be managed. Devi Shakti goes to the root cause of many of these hormonal symptoms
Many women are unhappy with their weight, skin and general health, often as a result of hormones. Devi Shakti will empower you with the tools to discover your Inner Goddess
Dr Alison Howes is a qualified Yoga Teacher (Level 2) with a PhD in Applied Science. After suffering endometriosis, thyroid disease, anxiety and depression for over 15 years, Ali turned her research to Yoga Therapies (the science of yoga) to better manage her health. After improving her own symptoms, Ali discovered a strong link between trauma, emotional distress and grief with that of many women’s health issues.
She furthered her studies in Trauma Sensitive Yoga—a unique style of Yoga to help rebuild neurological pathways and which enables the student to manage hyper-arousal and triggering. Her research and practice applies the psychological theories developed by leading researcher in psychiatry and trauma, Prof. Van der Kolk and that of the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioural Medicine.
Ali is also trained in Mindfulness and Shamanic practices. Her yoga is therefore truly unique, combining each of these therapies to help recondition the nervous system whilst improving hormone production. Her practices work the body deeply on both an emotional and physical level and have been successful in managing both hormonal conditions and traumatic stress.
Before starting yoga last year, I had suffered migraines every month since puberty. They had reached a point where I could no longer go about my normal day a couple of days each month, and I was constantly taking pain medications. After working with Ali on specific poses and yoga practice a couple of days each week, after 6months my migraines are all but gone. If I feel a headache coming on, a few specific yoga poses usually prevent it from progressing.Busy Mum of Three
