Bryony is an initiate of a hidden, yet very much alive, ancient women’s shamanic tradition, whose origins stem from the British Isles, Eastern Europe, and the temples of old in Greece, and Crete.
Having been a student and teacher of yoga for many years, specialising in Womb Yoga and Yoga Nidra, Bryony stumbled across this living pathway by a series of synchronicities and serendipitous events. This rich tradition leads the walkers of it’s ways into a more empowered, and enriched life, equipping them with the tools to stand both firmly planted in the earth, whilst exploring their inner sensual and stellar selves.
Skilled in bridging worlds and turning the mundane to magic, she invites those willing to dive deep, to come to the betwixt and between and discover the sweetness that it holds.
The fusion of Bryony’s training in yoga and shamanic practice allows her to navigate the architecture of holding sacred space – through ceremony, classes, workshops, retreats and one on one sessions. She offers alternative and nourishing methods for students and clients alike to discover their own medicine through movement, magic, myth and mystery school teachings.
Hers is an ongoing inquiry – committed to the path of learning and discovery, she continues to develop her work through shamanic and yoga training and a dedicated daily practice.
Shamanic Womb Work
There’s something about Bee’s
The sweet essence of inspiration ‘primum ens melissae’ ~ honeyed breath of life.
Melissae, meaning “bee” in Greek, also refers to the priestesses of Ancient Greece who attended the temples in devotion to the Great Mother, who in turned was titled Melissa “the queen bee.”
An initiate of this golden thread that weaves it’s way through her conciousness.
Treading the pathways of ancient womb shamanism, Bryony is skilled in bridging worlds and turning the mundane to magic.
Her connection to the bees, began at an early age where one of her first memories is of burying a bee at the bottom of her garden, placing a feather as the headstone.
Eventually the signs and symbols that crossed her awareness were too many to be a coincidence, and led her to the trembling veils of the Lyceum.
This gynocentric tradition invites the walkers of its ways to engage in practices that allow them to move with sexual potency, and work with its honeyed wisdoms to lead a more fulfilling life and cultivate deep healing.
A living pathway dedicated to the sensual process of being both the flower, flow-er and the sharer of these nektars. Bryony invites those who are willing to dive deep, to come to the Betwixt and Between, to discover the sweetness that it holds.
Bryony discovered yoga as a young girl, sparked by a curiosity after watching her mother do headstands in the living room.
What began as a largely physical practice, since then has evolved into a pathway through the inner architecture of her being. Yoga has given her the key, to unlock a whole vocabulary of movement, allowing her to dance freely between the different rhythms of life.
As a yoga teacher, Bryony encourages her students to find their own rhythm, whilst they journey together through the body into stillness. Offering detailed yet gentle instruction, she invites practitioners to remain attentive to the breath, exploring the different realms of movement. Looking inside to create deeper freedom of expression.
