Vanessa Hodge

Vanessa is a biodynamic craniosacral therapist who brings a profound understanding of body rhythms, the power of presence + deep listening to a unique awareness of our embodied experience. Her treatments are a journey of stillness and discovery. She trained with Franklyn Sills, the founder of craniosacral biodynamics and helps him to train other craniosacal therapists. Vanessa has been a student of Tibetan Buddhism and yoga for more than a decade and is training to be a core process psychotherapist, as she’s fascinated by how our early experience influences our patterning throughout life.

Narayani is well-known throughout the UK and Europe for her powerful devotional singing and for facilitating voicework that opens the heart and encourages your highest expression. Over the last 10 years, her journey of yoga led to her to discover her own resonant voice.
