Upcoming Events in April:
Blissful Neck and Upper Back Yoga and Therapy Ball Workshop
Saturday 22nd April 3-5pm
Many of us tend to hold tension in the neck and upper back from working on computers, long commutes, stress, and postural habits. If you would like to learn how to relieve tension, create greater mobility, strength, and health in your neck, jaw, and upper back, this workshop is for you!
We will work with yoga practices to strengthen and mobilise neck musculature. After, we will explore how to use yoga therapy balls to target tension hot spots - super calming and so beneficial for a great night's sleep!
The practice continues with supported restorative yoga to further soothe the mind and upper body, ending in a thoroughly relaxing yoga nidra and leaving you with a sense of space, freedom and ease in your body and mind.
All are welcome, including complete beginners. Spaces limited, booking essential.

An Invitation to Relax, Restore and Let Go
Sunday 30th April 1-3pm
A chance to carve out some quality time for YOU, with no distractions. A practice to bring awareness to body and breath, to unplug from the distractions and stimulation of everyday life.
This workshop combines the most relaxing three practices within Yoga: Yin Yoga , Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. One practice flows into the other and the design and intention of the practice is for you to experience a deep sense of peace and wellness in body, mind and spirit. Each practice is a little different, but each in their own way help us to experience letting go, shedding of tension and trauma and a fostering of a meditative state during. When we combine these 3 practices together, well, let’s just say relaxation is pretty much guaranteed, and a feeling of peace that will stay with you after you leave the mat!
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. You will be carefully guided through deep slow stretching and breathing and gently encouraged to release stress on all level. In a nutshell, a practice to recharge your batteries! We will practice by candlelight.
A 2 hour Yoga practice can be a great introduction if you are a beginner OR a chance to deepen the practice if you already attend classes.

Places limited, and booking is essential.
An Evening to Rest, Renew & Restore Yoga-6.30-8pm
Friday May 5th 2017
A chance to carve out some quality YOU time, to come out of “doing” and into “being”. It really serves us well to carve out stillness and rest in the busyness of modern life. Relaxation is something we must train the body to do; it is like a muscle that must be exercised. 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!
I 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: €20 BOOKING ESSENTIAL.
