Nea Ferrier established Ashtanga Yoga Dubai in 2013. Nilaya House shala followed in 2017, offering a full range of yoga classes which she runs and teaches from. She received level 2 authorisation from Sharathji Jois in 2010.
Nea is also an avid student of yoga philosophy. In addition, she runs an ethical textile business working with local Indian woman to ensure fair conditions and pay. In this podcast Nea and Adam are discussing the female menstrual cycle. As a man, you may notice him floundering at points. However, as a teacher of many women he thought it an extremely important subject to learn about.
Nea has been personally involved in charting her own cycle for a number of years now to her own benefit. She discusses the importance of honouring her cycle and the natural ebb and flow of life it suggests.
Therefore, instead of trying to gloss over these cycles, to homogonise our lives it makes more sense to use these natural, biological patterns of the body accordingly and follow their guidance. As they say, there is a season for everything. It is only when you respect and even embrace the winter and spring, that you can also then enjoy the summer.
Nea is currently completing a three-year Yoga History and Philosophy program (Traditional Yoga Studies) and one-year certificate in Ayurveda (American Institute of Vedic Studies).
Her aim is to empower and inspire students to learn, explore and grow along their own very personal path of yoga, uncovering what brings balance and joy and keeps the flame of yoga burning bright.
We hope you enjoy this Keen on Yoga Pocast with Nea Ferrier. You can find out more about her on her website.
