Upcoming Workshops and Courses:
Monthly Yoga Nidra Classes
Next Class: Friday 17th August
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
Space is limited, so booking essential. Text Colette on 086 066 6130 to book your place
Roll and Relax Workshop Series - One Friday Every Month
Next Class: Friday 24th August 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.

Sunday Slow Down -Yoga to Rest, Relax & Renew
Sunday 19th August 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. These are all different practices but each in their own way help us to experience letting go, of tension, pain/ trauma and foster a meditative state.
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 can easily become overwhelmed and exhausted In a nutshell, a practice to recharge your batteries!
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. For booking text Fiona on 087 9690936 or visit www.naturopathyclinic.ie
