2 Hour Blindfold Yoga Workshop: 10.30am, Saturday 10th November 2018

Join Ger Kinane for this two-hour deeply relaxing yoga journey as you explore the practice with your eyes closed. Feel your balance being challenged as you remove visual references. Experience the mind body connection intensify as you the rest of your senses become deepened and refined. With outward distractions removed, feel a stronger connection to breath. You will notice that the need for focus and presence is much greater than usual as you move mindfully and find stillness.
A very slow and accessible sequence of poses that will leave you feeling relaxed, restored, with a higher appreciation for your ability to see, both inside and out.
2-Hour Light to Shadow Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation Workshop: 10.30am, Sunday 23rd September 2018The Autumn Equinox, Sunday 23rd September marks the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. This Yin Yoga Light to Shadow workshop will help you transition into Autumn with ease.
In this 2-hour journey into Yin Yoga you will first be introduced to mindfulness meditation, to help develop awareness as you begin to slow down your body and calm your mind.
We will then move into Yin Yoga poses that look at creating balance within ourselves; honoring both the light and the shadow. The passive Yin Yoga practice will be an extension to the meditation as it requires as much from the mind as the body. Passively holding the yin yoga poses for between 3-5 minutes will challenge the mind to process negative thought patterns in a compassionate and accepting way. The Yin practice will help to increase flexibility and range of motion in a deep and effective way, help increase bone density, and enhance vitality and overall heath. In this yoga workshop, you will experience how the Yin Yoga practice gets past the muscles and targets the connective ‘yin’ tissues - joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia that wraps around your joints, muscles and organs. The Yin yoga poses will simultaneously promote and maintain mobility as connective tissue is safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened.
The strong meditative thread through this workshop will be further enhanced by completing the journey with a Yoga Nidra, a deep relaxation. This guided relaxation is a method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.
This workshop will have you feeling relaxed both in body and mind so that you emerge feeling receptive, rejuvenated and in a state of contentment and well-being. You will leave having planted the seeds of gratitude and compassion within your heart and feel renewed to step back into life.
