Tuesdays 10-11 am
Kalie Star Roots Yoga
Join my baby massage class running every Tuesday at 10:15 am for five weeks from Tuesday 12th April 2022 at the Art & Spirituality center in Georgie, Edinburgh.
This wonderful course is very relaxed and suitable for babies from 0-12months to pre-crawling. This course is a wonderful mixture of massage strokes, yoga stretches (for the wee one), relaxation (for parents and babies), sensory stimulation, songs, and rhymes for your wee one. There is always time in each session for informal chat and tea, coffee, and homemade treats.
I run group sessions for up to 7 parents and babies as I feel the babies really relax and enjoy the company of the other little ones in the group setting but being with a group also ensures that you won’t be the only one with a hungry or tired little one! It’s all really great fun and a lovely way to meet other parents and babies.
Baby massage is a wonderful way to bond with your baby and can help with the following…
Digestive tummy trouble
help support a restful sleep
reduces the stress hormones
Increases oxytocin and is very comforting
The course is £54 and I supply, your baby massage oil for you to keep and some handouts for you to take away with you and practice at home.
I look forward to meeting you and your little one and being part of your bonding journey.

with Gita and Krishna
Going by our spiritual names “Gita and Krishna” for our offering, we both have chosen to dedicate our lives to the spiritual process by practicing all branches of classical Yoga as well as Tantra Yoga, intensely everyday. Gita has been studying traditional Hatha, Tantra, Kundalini, and Holistic Yoga as well as Energy healing such as Reiki and a variety of other practices. Krishna is a Reiki, Crystal and Voice healer. Deeply dedicated following the yogic life in all it’s directions, and putting past tantric, yogic, and mystical knowledge into use through channeling from past lives. He is deeply devoted to his inner Guru who he feels is always with him, guiding him.
In each of our daily practices, we have often felt the magical benefit of properly chanting mantras. Not only is it effective for relaxation, meditation, and healing, but by chanting these sacred sounds, our cells and energy, and thus our very being resonate with these combinations of sounds. This creates transformation in the deepest parts of our mind, evoking positive changes in our mental and emotional state, spiritual evolution, and an overall positive shift in our internal and external life. We are both experiencing these strong changes day by day as our lives go on. We hope that this simple yet deeply sophisticated spiritual journey will be experienced by many people, to help them facilitate deep personal healing and evolution, as well as beauty within and around them. We wish for this bliss to touch everyone that is willing.
We offer our Nada Yoga Class on Friday at 5:30 pm (60-90mins)

WHAT ARE OUR MONTHLY GOLDEN ENSO SHAMANIC CIRCLES?
Zen circles, ensō, are symbols of teaching, reality, enlightenment, perfect in their continuity, balance, and sense of completeness, and yet often irregular in execution. They are at once the most fundamentally simple and the most complex shape with endless expression variations. Ensō evoke power, dynamism, charm, humor, drama, and stillness.
Ensō symbolizes a moment when the mind is free to simply let the body/spirit create. And you will be free to express yourself in accordance with the beauty of imperfection. Be ready to merge fully each month with powerful Toltec Rituals, Ceremonies, Initiations, Storytelling, Sharing time, Japanese Shamanic Forest Bathing, Cacao Ceremonies, Rites, Mandalas and Esoteric Numerology readings to find your Ikigai (your soul mission), Divination tools, Shamanic Journeys, Meditations and more. Our Circles will happen in person, in the Art and Spirituality Centre in Gorgie) or online according to the current time, but they will be there for you each month. Our Circles are Golden and you need to be an Inner Explorer to be part of them. “Since the earliest times, the golden thread has been the symbol of a knowledge that comes from personal experience and is free from institutional conditioning. It is a thread because it represents the continuity of an experience that is always old and always new. This thread is golden because it is immortal. “ Raimon Panikkar (Spanish philosopher and theologian )
WHAT IS A SHAMANIC JOURNEY AND WHAT IS SHAMANISM?
Shamanic meditation is simple, even for beginners. It is similar to eastern meditation practices, but it doesn’t concentrate on leaving behind the stresses and illnesses of daily life. Instead, it focuses on using a spiritual connection to heal these worldly concerns in their roots.
You will lie down, close your eyes and, transported by the driving beat of Giada’s drum, you’ll be guided in your own powerful shamanic journey as a deep evolution of communication with your spiritual guides (your higher self as well as others) to lead you on a personal journey of healing and understanding. You will journey to find your power animal ally and with a purpose, a question to gain insight into an issue that you want to know more about. And you will come back with your ally and an answer.
Going on a shamanic journey, you will able to access the other worlds through your dreaming body, into non-ordinary reality. This is what happens when you dream in your sleep, but in a shamanic journey you learn to dream awake.
Shamanism is a spiritual practice that goes beyond every beliefs and culture and is about trying to reach your full potential as you walk on planet earth, so connecting yourselves to the whole. Shamans were described as the first physicians, magicians, artists, storytellers, spiritual beings. But shamans are healers that make changes in invisible realms to help healing in the ordinary reality of the community. Shamans see in the darkness while connecting with the divine outside the time in an altered state of consciousness.
Some powerful benefits from Shamanic drumming:
- Reduce stress
- Improves concentration
- opens up acceptance of self
- it encourages the body to desire a healthier lifestyle
- beneficial to your cardiovascular health
- boosts your immune system
- induces a deeper self-awareness by prompting synchronus brain activity and alpha waves
- helps releasing negative feelings and emotional trauma

Women’s Moon Circle
with Fay from Yoga with Fay and Cori from KOA
Our themes will vary and will bring awareness to the seasons, energetic occurrences and rituals. For thousands of years women sat together in circles, to share, to listen, and to talk. To hear one another and to be heard. They disappeared from view for a while but have gradually made their way back. These circles are a unique way of finding connection; with yourself and with others. Through this space of listening and sharing we empower one another. Amazing things happen when we come together!
Fay has been holding circles for over two years, all safe and welcoming spaces. Cori has been part of these nourishing circles since August 2021 and jointly they hold the space.
We will begin with a little gentle movement to drop into the body, guided relaxation or yoga nidra and then open the space for sharing if you feel called.
(Circle structure may vary)
These circles open to all self identifying women.
Cori is an experienced wellbeing professional with a background in reiki, mindfulness, sound, yoga and coaching. Her offerings are deeply routed in the importance of listening to your heart and finding balance. Cori has been offering mindful yoga and walks to women in Edinburgh since March 2019 and loves working in the community. Cori is passionate about empowering all beings to celebrate the uniqueness of who they are. With Cori you are in supportive and safe hands.
Fay is an experienced yoga teacher, massage therapist and reiki practitioner. She has a background in health and an interest in women’s health for longevity, wellness and vitality, after finding the benefits of a unique practice in her own life. In early 2020 she completed additional training in Yoga Therapy for Women’s Health and Wellness which lead her to the path today of training to become a Yoga Therapist. She holds open, accessible and welcoming spaces with a focus upon enjoying yourself as much as anything else.
Together, Fay and Cori have an incredibly strong yet soft energy.
If you’ve not attended a circle before and feel a little nervous and curious that is normal, please DM Fay with any questions you may have.

This FREE workshop about PAINTING AND SHAMANIC MEDITATION
is sponsored by Gorgie Collective.
Behind every mask there is a face and behind every face there is a story. We all wear masks, also with ourselves, when we tell us the stories we want to hear.
How do you feel about the face you’re portraying for the world to see? Are you truly yourself? Do you feel that you can be you, no matter what social situation you’re in?
Why are we so afraid to be authentic? During this afternoon together we’ll start with a welcome ceremony with meditation to introduce ourselves and try to identify the time when we think we perform in our daily life. This epic performance is a huge drain on our minds, bodies and souls. It’s a hard act to constantly pretend to be, or feel like you need to be, someone else. We will then move to a Shamanic meditation
In our creative part, we’ll start with a skincare treat, where you will literally wear a light mask to reproduce that feeling of filter between yourself and the world surrounding you and you’ll write down a letter to identify these rules you need to go over. You’ll make a list of words that describe the person you are and you want to be and you’ll have the opportunity to paint your new identity wooden mask, learning a bit about the origins of masks in human history.

Chakra dancing with Jennifer Rose
The mood of our Monthly Shamanic Circles at the Art and Spirituality Centre in Gorgie, Edinburgh is powerful, dynamic, charming, funny, artistic and relaxing.
The theme of June will be
ANXIETY + SHAMANIC YOGA
The day before you will receive an email to set the appointment for the venue which can be either Saughton Park or 5minutes from there, the Art and Spirituality Centre.
The constant fear of not being adequate, not being loved, the constant challenges, the stress, the expectation and all that the world demands of us, create constant anxiety. And this manifests itself as the need to exert almost absolute control of the mind over the body and emotions, in an attempt to make them appropriate tools for social models. The result can also be psychosocial dysfunction, illness, suffering. But there is a beautiful Japanese practice that helps us move from being victims to co-creators of our lives. A practice that is linked to the art of shamanic storytelling. All shamans are storytellers.
We will then practice some Shamanic yoga , which is ancestral, ancient, pre-vedic. It has the element of ecstasy, of a non ordinary state of consciousness, where you work with nature, animals, yantras, mantras, mudras, rituals, initiations in the imaginal forest, in the natural code, non the social code. Merceliade says that this yoga is the oldest form of yoga and we find it in various traditions: Hindu tradition (Shaktism), Himalayan (Naropa, Milarepa etc), South America (Andean yoga), Siberia, Mongolia, Japan (Yamabushi), Taoism, Alchemy.
Shamanic yoga is not an exercise of the body, but a mystical, esoteric and initiatory healing practice that is distinguished by two characteristics; the first is ecstasy, the ability to communicate with the invisible, regaining the state of non-duality that is the typical goal of the yogin’s path. Ecstasy is not achieved by hypnosis or drugs or external means, but by means of instruments such as the drum, the breath and is not the trance of the medium. The shaman does not speak through the voice of spirits but draws knowledge directly from them.
The second characteristic is the ability to bring back through narration or storytelling what has been grasped in the invisible worlds, during the shamanic journey, and to convince the matter to transform into reality what is told.
In our circles expect Japanese Rituals from the Yamabushi Shamans Be ready to take a shamanic journey accompanied by Giada’s drumming and be in touch with your spirits allies to ask questions for which you need guidance.

Biodynamic craniosacral therapy
Holistic therapy that uses gentle touch od fully clothed client to resolve a variety of conditions and restore health. The emphasis in BCST is to work with the underlying forces that govern how we function, rather then just the effects or symptoms of these forces.
Unresolved stressful or traumatic experiences may be retained in the body and so restrict our natural capacity to heal. BCST provides a non-invasive and effective way to resolve this patterns of conditioning and so allow normal function to return. It’s a whole body approach that deeply acknowledges the interconnections between body, mind and spirit.
Duration time 1h-60£
Mana lomi® massage
Techniques of this massage is based on Hawaiian concepts of working with the mana wich we can translate to life force of the individual ant this is body, mind and soul.
It is at the bone level that all memory is stored from past traumas, injuries or emotional links. As with many indigenous cultures, the bones are the most important and protected part of the physical structure. It is here that specific codes are stored that make up each individual on a DNA level. Tapping into the bones allows the Mana Lomi practitioner to communicate on a soul level so healing can take place.
The Mana Lomi practitioner uses a multitude of techniques that affect the golgi tendon organ (GTO), muscle spindle fibers, and the pain receptors. For example, in advance techniques, the concept of compression and stretching away from the insertion point is an important skill for immediate and long-term relief.
Duration 1,5h – 100£
1h / focused on specific area of pain – 60£
Booking please contact info@
My practice is based in Warsaw, Poland where I work mostly with people thru tantric healing sessions wich I created called Sacred Sensuality Therapy. I cooperate also with Cancer Foundation and offer biodynamic craniosacral therapy to cancer patients. During my work I realize we are not so much connected to our bodies, we don’t talk about needs and boundaries so I lead also circles with touch where you can practice with other people in the group negotiating the physical contact.
