Wellbeing, Yoga, Recovery Coaching and More
Meet the Founder of Our Luminous Minds
I’m Nicole Asghar and I love the work that I do – Health, Wellbeing, Yoga & Recovery Coaching, Psychology and a specialist in SEND. Lucky for me, I get to see people of all ages in different settings, working with a variety of approaches. I created Our Luminous Minds to bring us together, to find ways to enhance our natural resilience, health, and happiness to get the best out of life. I believe we have everything we need within us, and with help from the right person, we can live the life we desire.
Health, Wellbeing, Yoga & Recovery Coaching, SEND
My relationship to health and well-being has been challenging, yet I am excited to share what I have learned with you. Recovering from years of chronic illness sparked a fascination with the mind-body connection and how we can use it to our benefit.
Since graduating from university in 2013, I have undertaken a Masters in Psychology, trained as a child and adolescent and adult yoga teacher. I specialised in therapeutic yoga for SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). I have taken many CPDs (continuing professional development) in sexualised trauma, child bereavement, understanding and supporting neurodiversity. After that, I decided I was not yet done with studying, and as a result, I am currently training as an adolescent counsellor.
About Our Luminous Minds
My greatest desire is to create a sense of connection, as it’s through this connection we find strength, hope and community. I’ve loved seeing people connect via my business. For instance, I’ve witnessed Mums with autistic children support each other after classes, numbers being swapped, thoughtful and honest discussions during sessions. This is the essence of ‘Our Luminous Minds”: connection, community and hope.
In conclusion, after coping with the pandemic, we have understood the importance of feeling supported and knowing we are not alone. The Our Luminous Minds community can help with all your Health, Wellbeing, Yoga & Recovery Coaching, SEND needs.
And please remember one of my mantras, Yoga is for everyone. Support is for everyone. Wellbeing is for everyone.
Concessionary rates and arrangements can always be made for those suffering from financial hardship. Please don’t let money get in the way of looking for support.
