Living in rhythm: yoga for heart & soul

Yoga in Southampton and Meditation in Eastleigh with Yoga Teacher StellaHey there beautiful soul, I’m Stella Tomlinson and I’m a writer, yoga & meditation teacher and energy worker.

And my soul’s calling is to guide and inspire sensitive, soulful people like you to connect to inner peace by living in rhythm with the flow of life through movement, rest, meditation, guided self-reflection, and cycle and seasonal awareness in alignment with your needs as a highly sensitive person (in an all-too insensitive world).

If you are you looking for inner peace and meaning in this frantic world; if you’re sensitive to your surroundings and other people and easily feel overwhelmed by too much stimulation and information; if you’re intuitive and empathic and crave quiet-time and spiritual connection …  then let me welcome you home. 

Who am I and what do I do?

I’m a writer, Dru Yoga & Meditation teacher, energy worker and Priestess-in-training and I’ve been on the path of exploring the mind, body and spirit connection since around the year 2000. I’m also the author of the book Peace Lies Within.

I’m a lover of simple, joyful, mindful living; taking the radical option of rest and relaxation; understanding that all of life is connected; and living in connection with the flowing rhythms of the moon and menstrual cycle and the sun and seasons; and I’m a highly sensitive person.

And I believe that the epidemic of stress, anxiety and depression in Western cultures – which I have experienced myself – is due to a profound sense of disconnection.

Disconnection from our bodies; disconnection from the natural rhythms, energies and ebbs and flows of circadian rhythms, the menstrual cycle, the lunar cycle and the cycles and seasons of the year. Disconnection from the joy of simple, sustainable living in accordance with nature.

All this disconnection is a path to burnout and ill health … via stress, anxiety and depression.  Do you feel it too?

So I believe that in our stressed, pressured, busy culture we need space and time to be.

To reconnect with our bodies; to reconnect to our breath; to reintegrate body, mind and soul; and to quieten the din of external stimuli and our anxious, analysing noisy mind so we can hear the inner, intuitive voice of wisdom guiding us to reconnect to our own needs; the natural rhythms and cycles of the day, month and year; and to live radiant, joyful lives based on meaningful connection.

This is how I try to live my life and it’s brought me so much more contentment and fulfilment now I embrace who I am: an eternal, radiant soul born into this highly sensitive, cyclic female body.  You can read more about me here if you’d like to.

What I wish for you

I’d love for you to feel this same sense of coming home.

A sense of reconnection to something that was there all along: the guidance of your sensitive, loving heart and soul, and the guidance of the natural rhythms and cycles of life which will show you how to live your life in a state of flow (instead of resistance and stress and low energy).

I’d love for you:

  • To understand and embrace your sensitivity so you can thrive in this often insensitive world.
  • To feel your body, mind and soul are connected and to help you feel at home there.
  • To know that you can rebalance your nervous system, release tension from your body and feel at ease and relaxed in body and mind.
  • To connect to the monthly cycle and flows of your menstrual cycle and the lunar energy cycle (if you don’t or you no longer menstruate you can absolutely attune to the lunar monthly cycle).
  • To honour the cycles and seasons and their energies and gifts of connection as a grounded, embodied spiritual practice.

Above all, I’d love for you to feel at peace, empowered and living in sacred connection with your body and soul and the natural rhythms and cycles and flow of life.

Is this what you’d like in your life?

Here’s how I can help

I’m currently realigning how I work to focus very clearly on being a guide to fellow sensitive soulful people to empower you to understand, care for and love your sensitive body, mind and emotions, and to reconnect to and live in accordance with the rhythms and flows of the cycles and seasons in order to connect to inner peace and a more heart-and-soul-centred way of living.

“Stella’s Dru Yoga classes are relaxing and energising at the same time. I can’t wait for my Thursday sessions. I come away feeling so healthy, relaxed and calm. The sessions help with the healing journey, on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. I wish I had discovered Stella years ago. I cannot recommend Stella and Dru Yoga enough.” Allison M, Chandlers Ford.

“For Stella, Dru yoga and its spiritual well being, is part of her DNA. She brings her passion to all that she does with an absolute desire to share its benefits with all. I love her classes and particularly enjoy receiving her regular posts and emails outside of her classes where she reminds us to take a moment to slow the pace of our busy lives and with shared words of wisdom, she helps us redirect our energies and find space for calm and peace. Stella’s passion and desire for all to experience the beauty of an inner peace is inspiring and infectious.” Debbie, Southampton
