Miriam's first experience of Yoga was a class in her hometown in Somerset. She dragged two friends along with her after college (she was 17). She was fortunate to have stumbled upon a real yogi transmitting Hatha Yoga. They chanted mantra and she fell in love with the practice. Over the next 15 years her love deepened. Next at 18, she travelled to India and felt a huge resonance with the place of yoga's birth and the people keeping the tradition alive. She would return to India many times. In 2013, she moved to Bangkok and her yoga practice blossomed.
She began to study Tantra Yoga, to read the texts and weave the wisdom into her daily life. In 2015, she completed her first yoga training, and in 2016 her second. She became resident teacher at one of Thailand's premier retreat centres, later returning to Europe as a senior teacher to share her practice at conferences and yoga studios. She has studied yoga from the Kashmiri Shaivist lineage and brought her own knowledge of sexual energy cultivation (nei gong) and the menstrual cycle to offer a yoga practice for women which feels safe for their bodies, fluid, flowing and beautiful.
Having lived and studied in India, it is important to me that I share my practice with deep respect for the culture it comes from. For me, this looks like doing my best to ensure that what I am teaching is aligned with the origins of the teachings, is in integrity and ensuring that I use some of the money I earn as a yoga teacher back to India to families, business and organisations. I am always inquiring into ways that I can better be in alignment with the teachings of Yoga.
Yoga is an incredible practice for women. It lays a much-needed foundation for health, strength and resilience. For the work I do, having a yoga practice is an ideal complement because it offers a way of spiritual discipline and devotion, providing an anchor for the more chaotic aspects which inevitably arise when working with the feminine. I teach yoga in all my retreats, courses and to many women in my mentoring programmes.
I offer a select number of classes each week which you can join me in. These classes are for women only and in them I share the Yoga practices I teach on my retreats and in my courses. Another way you can practise with me is to join me for a retreat. The next retreat is Bloom Women's Retreat., taking place in Puglia, Italy, August 7-14, 2021.

Yin Medicine is a Yin Yoga practice. There are four classes in this series. Each class follows an element: earth, air, fire or water. Each element corresponds to a specific meridian in your body, a season and is paired with specific organs. Through asana, meditation, healing sound and breathwork we follow the energy of each element through a class which is deeply restorative, grounding and nourishing. Drop in for one class or buy a monthly or 3-month package. Yin Medicine will run every week for 3 months.
This is Tantra Vinyasa Yoga. A flowing yoga practice where asana are connected together in a flowing sequence with an emphasis on the inner-world of the energy body. These classes combines asana, pranayama, kriya, mudra and nada for a deep and well-rounded practice that drops you deep into your body, mind and spirit. These classes are suitable for people of all levels.

The Mahavidya are 10 Tantric Wisdom Goddesses. Each goddess represents an aspect of universal consciousness and holds a sacred lesson which draws us deeper into our own inner-wisdom.
The goddesses are: Kali, Tara, Tripura Sundari, Bhuvaneshvari, Bhairavi, Chhinnamasta, Dhumavati, Bagalamukhi, Matangi and Kamalatmika.
Each week we will work with one goddess, practising a 90-minute yoga class inspired by and in reverence to her. Each goddess has her own energy and mantra which will be infused into the class.
After our practice we open a 30-minute sharing circle where students can ask questions, share their experience and Miriam can speak more about the goddess.
The Goddess Yoga series is for yoginis who have a deep calling to know the goddess and bring her deeper into their practice in a more tangible way, inviting her blessings to bloom in their lives.
Recordings will be sent out after each class. They are available for you to download and keep.
Please try and avoid eating at least two hours before practice.
Bring cushions and yoga props if you have them.
Make sure you have warm clothes, a blanket and socks to cover yourself in Savasana.
Remember to tell Miriam in advance via email if you have any specific requirements which will affect your needs during class.
Sometimes in our lives, the shadows sneak up on us. They blindside us and demand our attention. They break us down against our will as we fight and struggle against them. But Dark Feminine Medicine asks: Is there another way? Can we, like the goddess Innana, choose to go in? Into the depths, into the darkness, into the sacred Underworld. Into that place where we face our fears, where we challenge our limiting beliefs, where we hold our own (and each other's) guilt, shame, and rage without looking away? From day one, Miriam (with the help of her seven powerful goddess companions, of course) guided us safely through this endeavor. She created and held a space within which we were invited to go as deep as we were willing. She held it in safety, in privacy, and without judgement. She led us through resistance, anger, the perversion of our female sexuality, our witch wounds. She led us through alchemical transitions, as we let our old stories burn to ashes and Kali danced alongside the flames. She did this all with both seriousness and lightness. If you’re standing on the threshold of this work, I encourage you - step forward. Step in. The way out is through, and you won’t find a better roster of companions along this challenging and rewarding journey.
Ancient wisdom and knowledge explained with the help of female deities. My hidden dark feminine energy cracked open. Miriam lets you rediscover and cultivate suppressed and buried feminine issues like sisterhood, witch wound, sacred sexuality and your magical gifts. Essential topics that affect every woman are explained in a sensitive and open manner and worked out with clever guidance. The course is enriched by rituals, meditation and yoga. Seasoned with performances by exceptional guest teachers and references to further literature and video clips. An incredible transforming, intoxicating, nourishing, fulfilling and at the same time opening experience. I can warmly recommend DFM to every woman and I look forward to the second part.
Ever since I’ve met Miriam, I deeply loved her work, her energy, her magick, and every course I’ve joined. Dark Feminine Medicine is no exception! This beautiful 7-week course let me dive deep into 7 powerful dark goddesses and their healing, inspiring, and life-altering energies. Miriam held a beautiful 90 minutes live session every week, sharing the beautiful legends, symbolism, and wisdom of each goddess, providing an embodiment class and assignments, and sharing valuable resources to go even deeper. It was a very rich and powerful experience and thanks to the lifetime access, I can go and visit each of the goddesses and her wisdom whenever I need some dark feminine medicine. Beautiful!
