Welcome my friends!
We’re here to be part of a movement. A movement that teaches women the power we hold when we treat ourselves with care.
It’s our vision that women believe they deserve to put just as much time and effort into their health as they do their work and family and that they do it without guilt, without doubt and without a second thought.
We, as hardworking women, deserve to put just as much time and effort into our health as we do into our work and family. When we do this, we have a brighter outlook on life, we’re better role models for our loved ones, we have more positive thoughts about ourselves, are more accepting, live longer, feel calmer and the confidence within ourselves, our abilities and our life satisfaction increases.
We see women as powerful, bright and deserving of self-love, self-respect and self-care. We want every woman to have the option and ability to take time out for themselves to access the calm, focus and confidence that is so often craved and so often neglected.
To provide online spaces for women where doubt, anxiety, guilt and negative thinking are no longer part of our everyday lives. Instead, we are supported, cared for and inspired to treat ourselves with respect and self-care making space for calm, focus, positivity, motivation, confidence and encouragement through at-home yoga clubs, raw and relatable meditations, transformative 1:1 coaching and weekly inspirational emails with realistic strategies.
With Helen’s friendly, relatable and encouraging spaces, you are cared for, supported and inspired to take time out for you.
We know it’s not fair that you work all hours of the day AND look after your family first. We see you as a powerful woman that deserves to put just as much effort into yourself as you do in your work and family in a way that is affordable, accessible and totally guilt-free.
As soon as you jump on your journey with the bright and relatable Helen, be it through her at-home yoga clubs, raw and relatable meditations, totally transformative 1:1 coaching or weekly inspirational emails with realistic strategies, you feel calmer, more focused, more balanced and more positive because you have someone who really cares, supporting and encouraging you to slow down with a personal touch.
You no longer treat yourself as second best, as you have Helen with you empowering, inspiring and motivating you along the way.
And because of her light-hearted yet empowering personality, you’ll always feel connected and aligned with yourself. The guilt diminishes, the confidence rises and you see your tough daily situations with a calmer, brighter and more positive outlook.
With a light-hearted, friendly and personable attitude we know can take on any challenge with grace, gratitude and acceptance. We recognize our efforts, mistakes and strengths and enjoy it all!
We choose to connect with ourselves in the same way we connect with others, by caring, supporting and allowing the lovely in. With a smile on our face, we choose inner peace and lift each other up.
For the good of all women, we praise self-respect, commend empowerment and acknowledge our worth with aligned, loving action.
And a bit about Helen Sian India!
I'm weird, awkward and struggle with my thoughts + energy, a lot.
When I was 25, my Dad died at the age of 52. I was here in NZ, my family were back in the UK. I sat on my bed and cried and thought to myself, ‘I can’t fly back to the UK, I can’t afford it, I can’t do this.’ I was instantly powerless. I’d lost my father, my sense of security and safety. I was saddened, and stressed and lost.
After an hour of lying in bed, I booked a flight to the UK and was telling work I’d need time off. I was calm. I was collected. And I felt a massive change in me.
I dug into my deepest self and was able to see clearly after pausing, breathing and reflecting. I’d spent much of my life living in a reactive state, not seeing clearly and constantly letting my emotions take over. This incredibly powerful news shook everything for me, and showed me I have all the resources I need within myself to rebuild, recuperate and to steadily handle anything.
I wouldn’t have managed so well in the coming months and years if I hadn’t spent so much time learning, absorbing and reflecting. And that’s all down to Yoga. Keep reading below.
short + sweet bits of me
I’m originally from Nottingham in the UK and moved over to NZ 4 years ago because I LOVED the place so much and met a cool lad called Reuben Elley. I do miss the pubs in the UK and my family lots, so it’s a little tricky.
I’m the biggest kid when it comes to Harry Potter. I have a dressing gown, a wand, slippers, journal, pen, necklace – you name it, I’ve probably got it. Everyone has their something, my fun childlike thing, is this!
When I need to refuel, I gather all the above. On a day to day basis I love being at home, it’s my safe space. But my inspiration, energy and buzz comes around any time friends and food are involved. Bonus if wine is involved!
I have a puppo called Nimbus (ahem Harry Potter) and a kitto called Toby and they’re starting to love each other after about 10 months of living together.
I feel A LOT calmer when the house is tidy and I’ve done a tiny bit of meditation. One of my favourite things to do is organise peoples drawers and cupboards 😂
From as early as I can remember, I was helping others. Guiding, leading and stressing over how others were feeling; constantly. I was asked to write for publications and spread my experience and knowledge, all whilst being worried that I’d say the wrong thing, or my words weren’t helpful enough or clear enough. I wanted to shift this feeling, so started studying. I’d already completed a Psychology degree, but needed to understand more. I studied Life Coaching, Meditation, Nutrition, Personal Training, Accounting, Management, CBT and of course, Yoga Teaching.
Everything started to make sense. I was understanding the stress, how it happened, why it happened. I had all the strategies I could ever need! But nothing changed. I was still stressed, I still overthought everything, I still doubted myself. It wasn’t until my Dad died, and I was suddenly able to see what was important and what wasn’t, that I truly understood.
I knew all the wellness strategies and stress management techniques, but I was overcomplicating everything. Handling challenges, big or small, come from keeping things simple. Breathing. Moving. Smiling. And this all became clear.
Stress at work from managing staff, and a not-so-understanding boss felt easier when I reflected on what was going on in my head and changed my mindset. Stress from talking with my frustrated Step-mum who couldn’t understand why things weren’t going her away in the wake of my Dads death, felt more manageable because I’d taken some time for myself in the morning to move and breathe. Stress from an increasing workload and new pressures when I decided to start my business, felt totally doable when I’d taken 5 minutes to look at how far I’d come and what I’d already achieved.
I’ve never felt more at home than teaching yoga, seeing all the relaxed and content faces after a session. Hearing how much of a difference I make in someone’s life, and how they’ve been able to smile a little bit more than before. Simply from moving and breathing. And keeping it simple.
I often still feel nervous before teaching, stressed when trying something new, and the self-doubt is always there. But before, I’d spend days worrying. Now, I’m able to drop it within 5 minutes. I show love to the bits of myself that don’t feel good to make space for the stuff that does.
It’s incredibly important for me to relax and calm down, so I have time to do the things I love. And one of my favourite things is to show you too. To show you it’s so easy. To show you it takes 5 minutes to reframe and quiet your noisy mind. 20 minutes to move and shake that anxious feeling in your chest. A split second to make a loving choice towards yourself so you can smile and laugh at the challenges.
And so that’s what I do.
