Meet Your Guides
Adya has walked the path of Yoga and embodiment for over 2 decades.
Her passion for Women’s work has been weaved through her journey of teaching and study since she was a young woman. She has trained in Ha-tha Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Art therapy, Pre-natal Yoga, various forms of somatic healing and in her early years she worked as a birth doula.
For the past 15 years, Adya has held embodiment workshops and Yoga Teacher training in PachaMama, a transformation center in Costa Rica. There she was exposed to Native traditions of Mexico, Columbia, Ecuador and North America and has been deeply influenced by the Earth path of the Red Road.
Now based in the Byron Bay Shire in Australia, she is currently under the instruction of Carmen Vicente, a revered medicine woman of Ecuador. Adya is now participating in Carmens School of Secrets, deepening her exploration of the mysteries of Woman.
Xochi is a feminine spirituality guide, author and Women’s Temple circle facilitator.
She works with women to awaken themselves and each other through nature-based practice and sacred sisterhood. She previously trained in naturopathic nutritional therapy, the clinical practice of which took her on a journey deep into the rhythms, codes and wisdom of the womb, which she recognised as a space to urgently reclaim in these times of rising and remembrance.
Her path has brought her to many traditions including yoga, tantra, Native American ritual and ceremony, shamanism, paganism and trauma healing work. She has been mentored by Adya and trained in the sacred ways of Women’s Temple by Awakening Women, with whom she continues to apprentice - alongside Mother Earth and the Goddess in her many forms.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can't be present for the weekly meeting due to the timezone?
If you're not able to attend the weekly gathering, you will still be deeply connected to the circle.

The weekly gathering will be recorded and you will of course have access to each recorded meeting.
How long will I spend on my daily practices each day?
The daily practices can be weaved into the fabric of your life. You will have clarity guidance with how to work with the practices and yet only you will determine how much time and space you have to engage with the structure and design of this process. If you embrace the invitation to dive into this work with authenticity and truth, then the work will inspire a unique process of transformation and healing, beyond time.
