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.

Open to Spring | Rejuvenating Yin Yoga Workshop

2-Hour Healing Yin Yoga & Meditation Workshop: 10.30am, Saturday 15 February 2020
While the dark winter months welcome a natural hibernation and cosiness, the first signs of longer days and Spring in the air bring a sense of newness and possibility. However, it can also be a time that we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to stick to resolutions made at the start of the year and come down hard on ourselves when we ‘slip up’. In this workshop we’ll bring both body and mind through this time of transition from a place that might be a little more helpful! Come join Dee O'Hagan for a calming 2hour yin yoga workshop: slow sequence of yin postures including hip openers, side bends and twists to shift any stagnant energy in the body and encourage detoxification. We’ll also focus on moving forward with intention from a space of gentleness and self-compassion. This unhurried, meditative practice allows us to really tune into what we’re feeling, creating possibility from this more positive, less self-critical place. To make sure you really float into Spring feeling renewed, finish with a Yoga Nidra, a deep guided relaxation that allows your body to rest deeply. All levels are more than welcome.
