Welcome to a quiet revolution in women’s health

Join Nina Isabella, founder of mamashanti in unique, nuanced and contemporary explorations into women's health. Private Sessions by appointment held in beautiful spaces in Daylesford and Melbourne.

Pregnancy and Birth

Somatic Childbirth Preparation guides you into profound and practical ways to lean into the exquisite intensity of childbirth; to summon the will and resources to birth your child with dignity and grace.
Breathe for Birth seamlessly integrates contemporary yoga for pregnancy and birth with inspiring and on-point childbirth education. Perfect for any woman hoping to create a more postitive birth experience.

Every Woman :: Every Day

Explore a highly evolved practice, that appreciates your pelvic floor, just like the rest of your body is an intelligent, exquisite and complex structure. We will journey into the subtle suite of practices that will have you lovingly create a new relationship with the muscles and energetic centres that inform your sense of feeling safe, grounded, confident and a potent, creative force.

Private Sessions

Sessions are perfect for all women seeking compassionate and and practical pelvic floor practice.
Perfect for all pregnant women, especially if you feel mainstream birth preparation services do not support your unique needs and desires for birth. Particularly beneficial if you are planning a Vaginal Birth After Caesarian; have been advised your baby is settling in an unfavourable position for birth; or are experiencing pelvic girdle pain.

Established in Melbourne fifteen years ago, mamashanti is an entirely new modality created by pioneering yogini, doula and childbirth educator, Nina Isabella.  A truly womanly expression of yoga, entirely devoted to honouring every woman’s unique transition from maiden to mother to maga.

Quite simply, mamashanti is a potent new paradigm in supporting women’s life-long wellbeing. This is a whole-body practice, that begins at the precious pelvic floor – quite possibly the last frontier of women’s self knowing.  From here….
