We’re very excited to launch our fabulous new composting toilet available to all Bindu Yoga Centre users. The ‘Wee Hoose‘ is clean, functional, and friendly to the environment.
“Every year the average person flushes up to 50,000 litres of good clean drinking water per year down the toilet whilst people are dying of thirst in the same world.”
The loo is completely self-sufficient and green, perfect for our environmentally conscientious guests!
“I think compost toilets are the future. The Wee Hoose Compost Toilet is a creative, mindful, and green solution to a worldwide problem. Inventions like the Wee Hoose Compost Toilet is the hug the world needs. I believe we should all try to live more in accord with nature and not against it, and the Wee Hoose provides a means to do this. ”
(Inventor of the Wee Hoose, Scott Craig)
Considered at best average and at worst a ‘failure’ in her early educational life Natya suffered for many years with undiagnosed, untreated epilepsy. The effects of this were to be felt through-out many subsequent years of her life affecting her confidence and self-esteem and resulting in leading a life of ‘limitation’ restricted by anxiety. However, Natya believes passionately in the capacity for Transformation.
First discovering Yoga in 2004 while living in South Wales, over the next few years Yoga revolutionised her life. As such Yoga has become more than a hobby or a job but a life’s work. For Natya, Yoga is not only about what you do on the mat but how you live your life off it. It was her first Yoga teacher who introduced her to Mandala Yoga Ashram which has been her Spiritual home for over ten years now. It is here that she studied for her Yoga teaching qualification and has gone on to attend countless courses at the Ashram some lengthy year-long submersions into subjects such as Meditation and the Chakras, some shorter but no less influential courses on topics like pranayama, mudras the bandhas and many more.
Dancing has played a very significant role in Natya’s life. During her younger years, despite the effects of her undiagnosed condition, she took herself regularly and consistently to dance classes for several years . Training in Ballroom and Latin Dance. Nowadays, Natya regularly dances & teaches Salsa and Bachata but basically enjoys any form of movement to music.
Natya has found great inspiration in studying the work of Brene Brown on the subjects of Shame & Vulnerablility and has undertaken many of her workshops in order to more fully integrate these concepts into how she sees herself in the world. Another equally profound influence on Natya’s journey has been the work of Lisa Sonora Beam. An American artist and creative business consultant, she teaches experiential workshops that tap into the healing and transformative powers of creative self-expression. Again, Natya has enjoyed many of her on-line workshops, studying the techniques and philosophy of her work and was incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to travel out to Mexico earlier this year to work with her in person at her art studio in Oaxaca, taking part in her workshop ‘Creative pathways to your Purpose and power’. During 2018 Natya is undertaking facilitator training with Lisa Sonora.
Natya now finds herself offering a style of working which offers a fusion of these techniques, practices and philosophies which have proved so influential in her own life, Yoga, Meditation, the power of Vulnerabilty, Creativity and Dance. All of these tools are a practice to move us towards Integration, Connection and Healing. We practice in order to allow the process to evolve and our energy to flow. She has recently begun offering workshops combining yoga, creativity and dance, around the country
Natya also currently runs regular Hatha Yoga classes as well as dance workshops and 1-1 guidance in Matlock Derbyshire where she currently lives.
