Mid winter is when our energy is often at its lowest. We are meant to be hibernating, going under ground and resting. But right in the middle of this restful time come one of the busiest and often most stressful days...Christmas!!
There is such a build up and so much of it is wonderful, fun and exciting. But after christmas we can feel depleted, over fed and drained by too much time entertaining and being with family.
So these 2 hour long supportive classes are designed to bring you home and balance all the mince pies and jingle bells. There will be lots of grounding breath based practices, flowing movements and energising posture flows. Plenty of relaxing restoratives and stillness to totally bring you back to a place where you feel able to enjoy your holidays and sparkle from the inside out.
Booking early is recommended as these classes sell out quick.
To secure your place full payment €20 per class is required before christmas. You can drop this to my studio or message me for payment details.
'Managing stress and energy levels'
Saturday 10th February 2018
10am till 5pm €70 pre-book.
Would you like to build your energy levels and reduce your stress?
Stress negatively effects our energy, and a good flow of energy positively effects our stress levels. Spend a day learning how yoga can help you get back into balance.
More details and information below...
Do you find your Energy levels are a bit all over the place?
Maybe you're constantly tired no matter how much sleep you get.
Maybe you swing between being bouncy and energised then 'Boom' you feel like you've been hit by a truck and can't move for exhaustion?
Or do you just feel that you would like to understand where your energy comes from and how to maintain its flow and balance?
Do you battle with stress and anxiety? Do you feel over worked, scattered, and fried mentally?
Are you racing to try and get to a time and a place where you can finally relax and feel better?
All of this is connected and there are simple and very effective ways through yoga to learn how to get the most out of your life now and not keep waiting for a time when you feel less stressed and tired.
On this Yoga workshop we will be diving into the wonderful world of 'Prana'. Your essential life force, the sparkle in your skin the twinkle in your eyes, the pulse of your energy and the glow of your health.
Increasing, balancing and unblocking the flow of Prana is the heart of our yoga practice. There are many wonderfully enjoyable ways to do this. From breathing practices, to physical asanas/postures and movement flows, to quiet contemplative meditations and deep restoring relaxations.
My aim on this day is to help you to unlock your energetic potential and explore the ways that you might be unknowingly losing and blocking your own energy. We will do this physically, mentally and emotionally. With practical tools, yoga practice, talk, enquiry and lots of restorative relaxation.
We will also be looking at what causes stress, what triggers anxiety, the effects that this has on your whole system and ways to get grounded, calm and centred long term. We will do this through enquiry into the nervous system, how it works and what unbalances it. Your stressors, how to pre-empt and manage them and not let them drain you and drag you down.
This is a perfect way to begin your year, looking after yourself and by doing so you will be looking after everyone else around you. You can begin your year feeling like you know yourself, your limits and your potential much better.
10am to 5pm on Saturday 10th February 2018
At Flow Yoga Centre, Clonakilty, Cork.

'Developing a Home Yoga Practice'
Sunday 11th February 2018
Flow Yoga Centre 10am till 5pm
You Love Yoga but why do you find it so hard to practice at home?
You have a bit of time, space and a Yoga Mat but you don't know what to do next?
Spend a day Enjoying Yoga and explore ways to bring more of it into your life.
More information and details below...
A regular home yoga practice, even if its just 15 mins a day is transformative.
There are so many benefits to be gained from bringing yoga into your daily life and the practice you decide to do can be totally varied or always the same. You can do lots or just a little, you can work hard or just rest, you can practice at any point and anywhere.
But...There are just as many varied and complex excuses that will get in the way of you starting and continuing!
In this workshop we will spend the morning going through the different practices you learn and working with handouts you can then follow at home. These will be the physical asana's, posture flows and held positions. There will be breathing practices and mindfulness meditation. We will look at the balance and importance between moment and rest and explore how you can learn to read your bodies needs and learn how to adapt and change your practice as you need to.
The afternoon will be spent enquiring into why its is so very hard to change our 'bad' habits and develop and set good ones. We will do some written enquiry and have a chance to discuss the subject of 'needs' 'boundaries' and 'habits' as a group. (the written work is just for your use, the talking bit is only if you feel like it!) I feel very strongly that you need to have a really good understand of the hurdles that you will stumble on when setting out on a home yoga practice, which we all face but its not generally talked about. Once you understand the challenges you will be much more likely to succeed.
The afternoon will also include a bit more movement and lots of restorative yoga and some meditation.
Cost is €70 pre-book. These days tend to book out, so text me on 0877852491 to reserve your place.
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.
