YIN YOGA

SUNDAY 12th MAY

10am-12pm 

This is a quiet, slow, contemplative practice that complements a busy mind or lifestyle, regular yoga practice and other sports.

Yin Yoga has many benefits including; improving flexibility, reducing stress, improving emotional, mental health and well being.

This is for you if you’d like to really spend time getting to know your body and your mind. It will give you time out, just for you. To contemplate, investigate, to reflect, to nourish your body and mind. While physically we won't be moving quickly, or building up a sweat like in other yoga classes, this is a much quieter, slower practice. We explore our bodies and minds, through a series of floor postures, which we hold for several minutes working deep into the fascia. Taking the time to stretch and lengthen and to let go of anything that no longer serves you.

Yin Yoga challenges people and every posture will explore different aspects of that. You don't have to be flexible to try this!

This is suitable for all levels, including if you’ve never tried yoga before.

Nothing is expected of you, it is not a boot camp, it is not an endurance, or flexibility test. This will facilitate you in exploring your body in a safe and structured way. While we hold postures for longer, there is always the option to exit earlier- we practice with awareness and compassion.

Dress comfortably, bring a yoga mat, water, a & blanket & have no expectations of yourself - just stretch, bend and move.

Cost 30 Euro

RESTORATIVE YOGA

SUNDAY 28th APRIL

12.30pm-2.30pm

Restorative Yoga involves the use or props to support the body to completely relax. It is a way of really resting your body and allowing the body and mind to open up. Restorative Yoga provides a complementary space for both physical and mental relaxation. We can just be - with no agenda or expectation. Restorative Yoga can also be used as a meditation. We softly move our spines in different directions and include some gentle inversions which reduce our blood pressure. It stimulates and soothes our organs depending on the posture. It is a quiet, slow practice - completely different to Yin Yoga in the sense that our use of props truly allows us to progress into deeper states of relaxation & opening. This allows us to get in touch with our body mind connection and puts us firmly on the path for relaxation, management and reduction of our stress. We move towards health and wellbeing. What’s not to love?! This is suitable for all levels including beginners. Prepare to unwind! Dress comfortably, bring a yoga mat, water, a cushion & blanket & with no expectations of yourself. Yoga props are provided but bring along anything you need to make yourself more comfortable.
