Healing your Inner Critic with Yin Yoga

Healing your Inner Critic | Meditation & Yin Yoga Workshop

2-Hour Healing Yin Yoga & Meditation Workshop: 10.30am, Saturday 11th May 2019   "You're not good enough / thin enough / successful enough / busy enough / healthy enough / there for your family enough".   These are things we wouldn't say to someone we care about, but  we can often catch ourselves thinking these things about ourselves. This harsh, nagging inner voice fuels our anxieties, sabotages our relationships with ourselves and with others and holds us back from pursuing what we want to pursue and living the lives we want to lead.
The first step to working with the inner critic is to catch ourselves as we spiral into these negative thought patterns. Yin yoga and meditation allows us the space and time to observe how we talk to ourselves, particularly when things feel challenging. As we move through this slow, soulful practice, we'll release tension in the body but we'll also gently observe the negative thoughts that may come up as we do.
Dee O'Hagan will guide you through taking a different, more positive perspective that gives you tools to deal with the inner critic, long after you leave the yoga studio. This healing two-hour workshop will finish with a nourishing loving-kindness meditation, directing compassion towards ourselves and expanding that sphere outwards towards others.

Mindfulness Meditation & Yin Yoga

5 Week Yin Yoga Course: 6.15pm, Thursday 25th July 2019 (No class 1st  & 22nd August) 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.
