Embodied Nature Yoga: based on traditional and contemporary Yoga
Mondays 7.30-9pm An Sanctoir, Ballydehob
Class for beginners and improvers.
A six week course of Yoga that includes the full spectrum of Yoga practices: the physical practices
of Asana, Meditation, Pranayama (breath), Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) and Mudras (hand
gestures). We always end each class with either restorative yoga or yoga nidra.
The class is based on both traditional and contemporary techniques from over nearly 30 years of
practice and training,and 23 years of teaching.
I have evolved an approach to Yoga that is based on awareness, connecting compassionately
with the body, heart and mind. It is about undoing, softening, opening, being present to ourselves.
This is not about getting into tangled up positions or pushing and challenging the body, it is about
being with ourselves as we are, and seeing how the practice of yoga can support us and meet
our personal needs.
Cost: 75 euros for 6 classes / drop in 15 euros (please call beforehand if you want to drop in)
Rest and De-stress: Restorative yoga, yoga nidra and breathing practices.

Restorative practices to are an effective way to unwind, helping you to relax deeply, settle your nervous
system, combat fatigue, ease anxiety, manage physical pain.
Through long periods of stillness, fully supported by bolsters and blankets, the physical body can release
deep-seated tension and the mind can let go. Supported by gentle breath-work and guided meditation
and relaxation techniques, this class is for all those who need to slow down and let go.
Cost: 75 euros for 6 classes

What to expect in a class
Every class is carefully thought out, to offer you the opportunity to experience the holistic nature of Yoga, and it's ability to connect us with all of our being through awareness and being present to ourselves in each moment.
Following traditional and contemporary practices based on my own many years of dedicated practice and learning with renowned teachers, I share a wide variety of techniques, to support you towards wellness in body, heart and mind:
Asana: The physical practices of Yoga which create opening, release holding, develop mobility and strength, and support you to feel connected to your body.
Meditation: Meditation is a sate of being where we connect to a sense of oneness and belonging. We practice meditation to develop the skill and presence to be able to access this state of being, and to become more mentally calm and present in our daily life.
Pranayama: Yogic breathing practices aimed at working with the subtle body, the flow of energy in order to support vitality, balance energy levels, release subtle blockages and experience inner calm.
Yoga Nidra: the restorative practice of meditative rest, where we turn within and bring ourselves into stillness, so we may feel more at home and peaceful in every part of ourselves.
Mudras: physical gestures, usually done with the hands that can remap neural pathways and stimulate emotional healing
Booking a place: Pre-booking is essential. Join any time.
