A Way of Being
born of the Heart
Somah entwines the ancient spiritual pathways of Yoga and Yoga Nidra from the East, with shamanic South American Plant Medicine work and native wisdom and traditions of North America for the ‘soul’ purpose of healing, self-enquiry and to guide us home to our heart’s purpose.
Individually Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Plant Medicines invite us to explore the deeper layers of our inner worlds. They hold the potential to rewire the pathways of the brain and fundamentally restructure our personalities, to transform our state of conscious awareness in our daily lives.
As these methods work towards a common trajectory, when they are combined, their power for transformation can be even more potent and rapid. When mindfully and respectfully approached, they give us a greater capacity to love and embrace all of Life, regardless of what comes our way.
Somah honours the wonders and infinite wisdom of nature, her gifts and our own living connection to her. Re-membering the old ways that bring us back to the roots of spirituality and human existence, in order to rediscover what is innately *indigenous and sacred in us all.
In our modern “times” of ever increasing haste, busy-ness, and consumerism, where thinking and doing predominate, we often live in great imbalance in our inner and outer realms. Yoga Nidra mentors us back into equilibrium, where feeling and being becomes our internal compass for truly living.
Plants are the wisdom keepers of the earth and their spirit the very same that flows through all of Life. When respectfully approached, they offer vast insight and deep healing. Plant Medicine allow us to re-member innate ways of finding balance within ourselves, and how we interact with all that is, all that was and all that will ever be.
Yoga meaning to ‘yoke’ or ‘unite’ was designed for the purpose of spiritual development, creating an embodied living connection to the whole of Life. It’s a sophisticated system of cultivating, moving, managing and balancing energy (prana).

Somah Founder and Soul Guide
Simone MacKay, has adopted these customs in her own journey of ‘waking up’ for over a decade. Facilitating yoga teacher trainings and events around the world with the School of Sacred Arts, as well as cultivating and presenting Yoga Nidra practices that are grounded in shamanic and nature based teachings. Simone deeply values how individually these illuminating and transformational tools can be utilised holistically towards a common trajectory and offers an annual yoga and plant medicine retreat in Peru in which she organically weaves these threads together.
Re-membering who we are
Yoga Nidra, Yoga and Plant Medicines allow us to see (and see beyond), the rawness of our own reality.
Surpassing the superficial layers that cloud our ability to see more clearly the nature of our existence and in doing so they evoke a re-membering of the ancient and innate spirit that is as much of the soil as it is the blood. Here, we find the ancestral and perennial in ourselves – the heart of Life, with its indestructible, immemorial, cosmic pulse that belongs to all beings and all things.
The methods of Yoga, Yoga Nidra and the guidance of Plant Spirit medicine (the profound openings the plant teachers provide us with), working within the intelligence of Mother Nature, all support the clearing of pathways, both physical and energetic, so we may become more finely attuned instruments in which frequencies of clear energy expressed increasingly as LOVE itself can find their way into our day to day lives and in our relationships.
