Monthly Yoga Nidra Classes
Next Class: Fridays 9th & 23rd November
Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep) is a method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. It is a deeply relaxing, guided meditation, where you are taken on a journey throughout your body. In essence, your body is 'asleep' and resting deeply, while your mind remains awake. It is said that 30 minutes in yoga nidra is the equivalent to 4 hours' deep, uninterrupted sleep. It enhances creativity and productivity and improves sleep, healing and general health.
Cost : €10. No yoga experience required

Restorative Yoga Workshop
Friday 14th December 6.30-7.30pm
Busy? Come slow down and nourish yourself! Restorative yoga is the use of props to support the body in positions of ease and comfort to facilitate relaxation and health. It is a practice of deliberate stillness and requires no muscular effort. In this class, we will settle into some supported floor poses (gentle twists, supported forward folds and back bends, slight/supported inversions, and different versions of Savasana) for intervals of about 5-10 minutes while releasing tension, gently breathing, and allowing gravity to draw us towards the steadiness of the earth underneath.
Restorative yoga poses manipulate our nervous system in such a way that reduces the influence of our activating systems (sympathetic) and increases the efforts of our quieting systems (parasympathetic) so that we may take rest. All of the organ systems in the body are benefited during deep relaxation, and a few of the measurable results of deep relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure and stress-hormone levels, as well as improvement in digestion, the reduction of muscle tension, insomnia, and generalised fatigue.
This style of yoga provides a time for BEING instead of DOING. This class is a practice of actively cultivating the attitude of letting go and will help teach you to learn how to deeply relax.
This workshop is for everyone, including complete beginners, mums to be, and anyone recovering from illness or injury. Spaces are limited, booking essential.For booking and info, please contact Laura on 086 815 9953
Roll and Relax Workshop Series - One Friday Every Month
Next Class: 30th November 6.30-7.30pm
This is one hour of pure bliss to end your week. Each month we will focus on a different area of the body, and gently roll out the tensions of the week with Yoga Tune Up balls.
After easing out the knots, we will support our bodies in restorative yoga poses. Restorative yoga is a balm for your body and mind during stressful times. By resting for several minutes in completely supported yoga poses, your body relaxes deeply and tension melts away. As your body unwinds, your nervous system calms down, relaxing your body and mind right down to the cellular level. The entire practice takes place supported on yoga props, on the floor, in peaceful candlelight. Join us for this very special class - your body and mind will thank you!
This workshop is for everyone, including complete beginners, mums to be, and anyone recovering from illness or injury. Spaces are limited, booking essential.
