Mindfulness and Stress-Reduction: 8-part series
Starting Wednesday 4th May 2016, 10am - 12.30pm
This 8-part course gives people an opportunity to experience a wide range of mindfulness practices for everyday living. This is the 'gold-standard' and internationally recognised Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course (MBSR) established by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
Perhaps you have heard how mindfulness could help you take charge of your life in new ways? Perhaps to help you cope with stressors more calmly and effectively? Or perhaps you have tried some mindfulness at home or attended some occasional classes and you now wish to develop a more regular practice in everyday life?
Mindfulness is essentially about training the mind in a particular way that can help you to relate to thoughts and feelings with less judgment and with more compassion. The course aims to help you to relax, to take better care of yourself and to get more out of life. Studies show that it is a highly effective complementary programme for people seeking to live a fully engaged life and for those living with chronic health needs. It is suitable for beginners and for those who have some experience who wish to deepen their practice of mindfulness.
Each Wednesday morning, beginning on the 27th April, we meet for 2.5 hours to practice and explore aspects of bringing mindfulness to life. There is also 1 full day 'retreat' style that will also be included. The cost also includes a course manual and recordings of guided meditations. Usual cost is €295 with an early bird booking reduced cost of €245.
The next course is scheduled to begin on Wednesday mornings at 10.00 am from 27th April to 15th June.
Please contact Sheena on 087 681 6635 to talk through more details and to help you decide if this is the course for you right now.
4 Week Rest, Renew & Restore Yoga by Candlelight
6.30-8pm, Fridays 20th, 27th May & 10th June 7th
This series of classes offer an opportunity to take some time out for rest and relaxation and to deepen this experience over 4 weeks . A chance to come out of "doing" and come into "being". It really serves us well to carve out stillness and rest in the busyness of modern life. Each class is 1.5 hours allowing us lot's of time to really let go, surrender and chill out. Relaxation is something we must train the body to do; it is like a muscle that must be exercised. Something we often forget to spend some time doing. Physiologically this type of practice takes us out of sympathetic nervous system dominance (stress) into parasympathetic dominance (rest and digest), unless we do something to make this switch on a regular basis, we easily become overwhelmed and exhausted!
We hope you can take time out for yourself to enjoy a full Restorative Yoga practice and a Yoga Nidra. (Guided Relaxation/Yogic Sleep!) With restorative yoga, the body is totally supported by props, bolsters, blankets, etc. in each of the poses, so that you are totally warm and comfortable, creating a sense of safety which brings complete relaxation and letting go on all levels. We wrap up in blankets, pop on the eye pillows and chill out in the poses for up to 10 mins each listening to really relaxing tunes and let the tension melt away. Bliss!
Cost: €55 for block of 4 classes
Deposit of €20 required to secure your place
