The evening will also include a beautiful cacao ceremony.

This heart opening drink will allow you to find a deeper sense of clarity, to be able to speak from your heart for the journalling part of our ceremony. We will end the evening with a slow meditative yin style yoga practice, to encourage you to go deep inside of yourself, allowing yourself to let go of what no longer serves you and honour the light as it begins its journey of reemergence.

International Yoga Day | Charity Yoga Class for the Hope Foundation
World Yoga Day – Hope Foundation Charity Yoga Event

Meditation & Yin Yoga

Hope Foundation Charity Class, 5.30pm, Wednesday 21st June 2023 To celebrate International Yoga Day (21st June), join us for a Charity Class with all proceeds going to the Hope Foundation to help street children in Kolkata, India. In return for helping others, you will be rewarded with a self-care class of meditation, yin and restorative yoga poses and end with a deeply relaxing yoga Nidra. 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, getting past the muscles to target the connective ‘yin’ tissues - joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia that wraps around your joints, muscles and organs. The class will move into some gentle restorative yoga poses to deeply calm and restore.  The class will end with a deeply relaxing guided yoga Nidra relaxation to ensure your feel grounded and relaxed both in both body and mind. A great way to end a busy week and support a great cause. HOPE is an Irish registered charity (CHY No. 13237), which was established in 1999 by Cork native Maureen Forrest. HOPE implements all its programmes in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) in India, providing vital access to protection, healthcare, education, vocational training and emergency response programmes for street connected children and slum dwelling communities. The children and communities with whom HOPE work, are some of the most vulnerable and most disadvantaged in our world. More information on the work of HOPE can be found at . If you cannot attend and would like to make a donation, it would be greatly appreciated. All proceeds from this class will go to the Hope Foundation.
