Samvida is a space for women, inspired by women.
My name is Alicia and I am a Yoga Teacher qualified in Yin, Vinyasa, Hatha, Meditation and Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga. I am currently completing my certification to become a Doula ~ birth support person ~ and I am so passionate about what we as women are truly capable of. I have a deep calling to serve the Divine Feminine. Women on their journey connecting to self, through stages of understanding and being liberated by their bodies, to conceiving, pregnancy, birth, the postnatal period, and beyond. I’m here to support you as you tune into your intuition that is telling you to take control of your own wellbeing & live in alignment ~ to connect your mind, body and soul. To unleash the power of the Divine Feminine that is hiding inside. If you are sitting in that space of wanting to know and understand more about who She within you truly is, then you are in the right place.
THE MEANING OF SAMVIDA
Why Samvida? When naming my business, I really wanted something that captured the essence of what I was offering. Sanskrit, an ancient language belonging to the Indo-Aryan group, is the original language of yoga. To me, there is something so beautiful about the Sanskrit names for each asana, or yoga pose, and I do my very best to know them when I teach them. There’s a certain vibration that carries through this language, unique in comparison to English. I researched into many ideas and names inspired by Sanskrit and came to rest on the name Samvida almost instantly. There are a few translations of meaning, yet the ones that spoke to me were ‘having consciousness’ and ‘promise or agreement’. Consciousness is an individual’s awareness or perception of something. What a wonderful way to consider & enhance one’s experience of yoga and birth. As a doula in training, the ‘promise and agreement’ communicate my commitment to support and nurture you on this journey of childbirth. This is a very intimate and vulnerable time for a woman, and I believe that this relationship between mother and doula is important to be one of gentle nature, consciousness, & commitment.
When asked by my closest friend to describe my dream business in 3 words ~ its energy and vibration ~ my answer was safe, nurturing, and intuitive. I truly hope that Samvida will be a place where you feel safe to share your dreams and fears, to cry, to be vulnerable, to explore and reconnect. I wish that my offerings will make you feel nurtured, warm and cared for; that this is present in the essence of Samvida no matter where you are in the world. When I create and give back, I promise to always do this from an intuitive place. I’m very connected with and affected by my intuition ~ I believe it’s essentially a sixth sense. Samvida is my precious baby that I feel I am birthing for the wonderful women in the world and their Divine Feminine. May Samvida always be guided by intuition, and inspire you to live in your truth. Thank you so much for being here.
