Have you ever thought “if only I was stronger in my core I…” or you heard the words “engage your pelvic floor” or “use your core” but don't really know what that means?

The workshop is lead by Deirdre Mullins, our fully qualified Somatic Exercise Coach, Clinical Somatic Educator and Yoga teacher, who since 2013 has been passionately exploring Somatic movement, leading Somatic workshops and working with clients through Somatic Movement and Yoga.

Meditation & Yin Yoga

Mindfulness Meditation & Yin Yoga

3 Week Yin Yoga Course: 6.15pm, Thursday 19th November 2020 End your busy week with this beautiful calming and deeply relaxing mindfulness meditation and yin yoga class. Mindfulness meditation will help you relieve stress through exploring the habits of your mind. The passive Yin Yoga practice requires as much from the mind as the body as simple stretches are held for between 2-5 minutes challenging the mind to process negative thought patterns in a compassionate and accepting way. Body sensations are navigated by building inner stamina and endurance and developing a mindfulness based meditation practice. As a result, the entire body experiences deep rest. The long holds in Yin Yoga get past the muscles and target the connective ‘yin’ tissues - joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia that wraps around your joints, muscles and organs. Yin yoga will simultaneously promote and maintain mobility as connective tissue is safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened. This Yin Yoga practice will change the way you go through life, creating the internal peace required to “respond” instead of “react". Leave feeling relaxed both in body and mind. In the event of a Covid-19 lockdown, Yin Yoga classes will be delivered online via Zoom.
