Ingrid van Oostrom
Ingrid enjoys assisting others to thrive in life. She is passionate about self-care and is convinced that taking care of yourself and reconnecting with nature is key to a fulfilling life. We often forget ourselves in this modern world where responsibilities are many.
Life Coach, Yoga teacher and Horticulturist
Life is a journey and everyone experiences ups and downs. After a successful career in Customer Service and IT, Ingrid was made redundant. She decided to look at it as an opportunity and changed her life around. During her studies to become a yoga teacher she fell in love with plants. She studied Herbology at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh where she gained her Diploma in Herbology with distinction in 2016. She studied and finished her Personal Training Qualification also in 2016 to support her yoga knowledge and went on to study Horticulture in 2017 at Threave - Heritage School of Gardening in Castle Douglas - Scotland. She became Culzean Castle and Country Park's Propagator and Glasshouse gardener from 2018 until 2022 – Scotland.
Petals and Aum was born in 2022 where Ingrid helps others reconnect with nature and create self-care routines that lead to healthy self-respect and self-love. Dreams are transformed into goals and goals into reality incorporating yoga, coaching, and nature.
'Yoga, nature, and plants have given me the tools to find myself, accept myself fully, and to stay true to my own being. With my skillset and holistic approach I show others how yoga, nature, and coaching can support them. Life is an adventure for yourself to yourself and it does not have to be difficult or hard all the time. In fact, it can be very fun and playful amongst the seriousness. Everyone deserves to thrive in life.’

These tailored and private sessions are nourishing for your body, your mind, and your soul. Sessions available for 45 minutes, 1 hour, 1.5hours, or 2 hours.
Tailored yoga nidra (from £50)
Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is often referred to as deep relaxation or guided meditation but it is so much more. As with every yoga practice there are many descriptions of it, but it is our experience that counts. A practice where the body is fully supported and relaxed yet where we are very receptive and aware. This state allows body, mind, and spirit to process experiences and heal on a deep level. This service includes a consultation and a tailored yoga nidra recording. Multiple yoga nidras are also available.
Ingrid devised a personalised yoga nidras for me. It led to deep reflections which helped me solve and resolve personal and interpersonal challenges and increase my sense of purpose in the world. Simply wonderful.
She also devised life coaching with me when I felt stuck particularly with finances. I can't recommend her insight and guidance enough. She got me thinking from a different perspective. Practises that I still use to this day. Thank you Ingrid. You have shown me that change does indeed comes from within.
I was fortunate enough to meet Ingrid when she was just at the beginning of her adventures into plant husbandry and herbal medicine. Seeing her fuse together all her passions, which are also her skills, has been amazing - but to be able to benefit from these as her yoga student has been a sublime and grounding experience.
Ingrid is thorough in her approach and sees the individual first and really works with you to help you find a connection into your body. If you work with Ingrid you are choosing not a life coach, a herbologist, yoga instructor or gardener - you're choosing someone to partner you through whatever transformation it is you need to make. Her kindness, dedication, and sense of fun are evident in every aspect of her work, and life. I couldn't recommend her more highly.
Ingrid's life coaching was wonderful! She helped me gain clarity on where I was at and where I wanted to go, including digging out some things that I hadn't realised were important to me. Throughout several sessions, she was patient, understanding and went the extra mile to help keep me accountable for the plan she was helping me set.
