“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”

~ The Bhagavad Gita

“Our Yoga sessions are more then just a physical exercise, during the sessions we explore yoga philosophy and ways of living a more conscious life. As we always say, “Yoga has a lot more to offer than just a fit body!” We create a fun, relaxed and safe environment where you can come and explore who you are in all the different levels of your being. By practicing yoga we become better human beings, we learn how to connect with our true nature and to live a more purposeful life .”

Born to be Wild is here!!!

After much exploration, contemplation and experimentation I finally feel confident to bring to you a program focusing on the Wild Woman. 

I see the Wild Woman as a primal instinctual feminine energy. An energy that is our birth right, but has been suppressed by our fear, an energy that we must reclaim!

The Wild Woman craves for connection to the land, she is present in her body and connected with her inner cycles.
The Wild Woman is an unstoppable force of passion, boldness, and creativity, she is the one who moves and inspires us through full feminine embodiment.
The Wild Woman is present within each and everyone of us and she wants to be free!

“Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species.”
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes

This program is for women who have heard the call, the call of the Wild. 
For women that feel that there is something missing in their lives. 
For women that want to feel free and liberated and in touch with who they are on a deep level.
If you, like me have a desire to live life in its fullest with deep connection with the land, with your body and those around you then this program is for you.

About me, Pollyana:

I have always been the one that didn’t conform, the black sheep, the crazy one, the one who pushes the boundaries, the one who loved adventures and fun.

I grew up in a small country town in southwest Brazil. 
I spent most of my time bare foot, playing outside. 
I remember always deeply caring for the Earth and the animals. 
Life presented many challenges to me, but they made me a resilient woman.

After travelling around the world for many years and enjoying my freedom I became pregnant.

Moving to UK and becoming a wife and mother caused a severing of my connection to the land and my wild self as I put my full attention on others and forgot about myself.
Two years ago I slowly started remembering who I was, I heard the faint call of the wild. I started remembering my true nature, the things I loved doing, the things that sparkled and inspired me. 
Without knowing it I was going back home to myself.

Last year I engaged deeply with self-care and that lead me to my core, to nature, to the things I love doing. Through self-care I started rewilding.

I now offer this program as a doorway to your inner Wild Woman, a place for you to explore the aspects of yourself that might have been forgotten and/or neglected. This is a safe space, a sisterhood where we will support each other as we remember who we are at our core.

Come on sisters, the time is now!
Your Wild Woman awaits you.

With love,

Yoga teacher, circle holder, reiki practitioner, massage therapist, nature lover, truth seeker and Wild Woman.

“When women reassert their relationship with the wildish nature, they are gifted with a permanent and internal watcher, a knower, a visionary, an oracle, an inspiratrice, an intuitive, a maker, a creator, an inventor, and a listener who guide, suggest, and urge vibrate life on the inner and outer world.”
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes


“I know Pollyana through yoga practice, she is a genuine caring woman. This is the reason I joined the Radical Self Care Group. Having never been part of anything like this before I was unsure what to expect. Pollyana facilitated the Circles with love , care and humour. They were safe and secure places where you could share honestly and be supported by other women. Being a member of this group has been a really positive experience, one that I would recommend to others.”
~Catherine Drysdale

My Story

This past year has been a breakthrough for me.

I finally stopped, I finally realised how much of myself I was giving away and how broken I have become.

A mother of two energetic boys, running my own business, taking care of my home and my family I missed out on the most important person, MYSELF.

In the past 10 years I’ve completely forgotten who I am without all the roles I have to perform: mum, friend, wife, yoga teacher, daughter… and the list goes on!

I had forgotten who Pollyana is, and that sucks!

How could I have let this happen?

How could I have lost track of my own desires, things I want to do, things that give me pleasure and fill my soul with joy, happiness and laughter?

Beyond that – I was getting sick! Years of abdominal pain, gastrointestinal issues and back pain with no detectable physical cause… Fatigue, mood swings… symptoms which seemed to be related to my stress levels but were always there.

As the year went on, and all these things came up to the surface I started healing, taking timeout, resting and the more I rested the more I needed to rest. I needed to go inwards, stop and create space for myself just to be, honouring myself and my needs.

It hasn’t been easy, but definitely necessary, I was feeling burnt out, fragile and broken. Something had to be done about it, otherwise I would breakdown and become unable to give any support to my family, friends and yoga students.

The solution?


“Self-care is not a matter of “care for yourself instead of others”, nor “care for yourself once you have finished caring for others”. It is not even “care for yourself before caring for others”. It is just self-care. We complicate things too much in our minds. It’s simply about respecting your own needs and desires.”

~Dr David Hamilton

I have become deeply committed to my own self-care, it is a very important part of my life now and it is has made a huge difference.

Self-care is helping me to be aware of my own needs, to befriend myself. Self-care is the very root of self-love and self acceptance.

Self-care is teaching me to say no and to create healthy boundaries around my time and energy. I am replenishing myself to such an extent that I am most of the time giving from a overflowing cup – instead of an exhausted almost empty cup.

Self-care is about self-responsibility, being in control and in charge of our lives. It is about taking responsibilities for our own thoughts and feelings.

I am looking forward to dive into a Radical Self-Care Journey with you!

The practice of yoga is an art and science dedicated to creating union between body, mind and spirit. Its objective is to assist the practitioner in using the breath and body to foster an awareness of ourselves as individualised beings intimately connected to the unified whole of creation. In short, it is about making balance and creating equanimity so as to live in peace, good health and harmony with the greater whole. This art of right living was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago and the foundations of yoga philosophy were written down in The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, approximately 200 AD.

Generally the class will open with a breathing exercise then move into flow-based strengthening poses to warm the body, leading to one or more deeper, extended poses. Emphasis is placed on breathing throughout as a tool to keep us in the present moment.

Flowyin Yoga:

Nurturing, challenging & meditative.
A slow paced nurturing yoga session which helps to release stress, anxiety and tension. Perfect for those who need to slow down and take a break from the demands of everyday life.

Women’s Yoga:

A creative yoga asana practice to cultivate strength and flexibility focused on the needs of women’s body and mind.
We will flow from one asana to another, seamlessly, using our breath, moving and breaking free from rigid structures and patterns the we carry not only in our bodies but also in our minds.
We practice bringing consciousness to each movement in each moment.

Yoga for all!

A yoga session for all levels.
The sense of community permeates the class.
A great session for those who like to have fun whilst practicing.
