Yoga day: 'Summer re-set and slowdown'
In the summer our energy flows upwards into our heads and out of our bodies. This can leave you feeling tired, scattered and ungrounded.
You might have noticed as we go past mid summer, that you are getting a bit wiped out and don't have as much fuel in your tank. This is normal and with some special attention you can top up your energy stores, so you have enough go left to enjoy the rest of this beautiful summer.
This workshop is designed to offer you this much needed support.
Sunday 12th August 2018

Flow Yoga Centre, Hartes Courtyard, Clonakilty, Co Cork.
On this restoring Sunday we will go deeply and slowly through a range of supportive and grounding practices that balance the natural heady summer energy, and bring us back to the ground and home to our bodies.
We will spend lots of time working with 'Slow Flows' which are Vinyasa's (moving on the breath) practices that take you steadily through a balanced and supportive combination of Asanas while focusing on the breath.
Moving slowly with breath focus, deeply settles and restores our ever frantic nervous system. Slow Flows also build stamina and strength in a manageable and calm way. These calming sequences will bring you back home to yourself, so you feel centred grounded and calm.
There will be lots of forward bending stretches, to deeply open the back of the body, Ham strings, hips and spine. Gentle inversions to reset your system and support to go deeply into some big stretches and deep relaxations.
Our energy is heightened in the summer. which can be a great thing, as you feel more of a spring in your step and are generally more energetic. But we need to balance this up surge in our energy, especially when its hot and there is lots of sunshine. So that we don't get rung out, depleted and fragmented.
So taking this time for yourself in the middle of the summer, will set you up and support you in getting ready for the new term and all the focus, time and responsibility that this requires.

Feedback from a previous workshop: "I thoroughly enjoyed the Day! Every aspect of it was interesting & challenging but so rewarding all at the same time. You really opened my eyes to the asana's through the adduction exercise as I've always concentrated on getting the look of the posture right rather than the feel. I also found the blind-fold exercise a revelation as I could feel my alignment was better once I stopped looking outwards. I have to say that if it was at all possible for me to get to your regular classes I would be a regular student". Tina Horgan.
