Rest & Restore at Bealtaine ~ Welcoming Summer ~ Sunday April 28th, 2.30 – 4.30pm.

As spring transitions to summer it is the perfect time to take a pause to re- connect with our self’s and embrace the emerging summer energy around us and within!

Bealtaine was a big celebration in the Celtic Calendar, marked by fires and flowers and festivities, this was done in order to attune to the energy of this time of year, which is about, blossoming, fertility and becoming more alive. Our intention with this practice is  to awaken the body and mind, stretching into tight and stuck parts to lift the energy and bring space for brightness and positivity, rekindling your life force/prana.  We will practice some pranayma (breathing techniques) to assist with this.

This will be a deeply restful restorative/yin and  yoga nidra practice, using props and bolsters to allow for complete rest and relaxation, body, mind and soul.   You will be ready to bring on the summer!

Physiologically this type of practice takes us out of sympathetic nervous system dominance (stress) into parasympathetic dominance (rest and digest),  unless we do something to make this switch on a regular basis, we easily become overwhelmed and exhausted!

*In this workshop we will:

*Practice deep relaxation

*Retrain the nervous system

*Release muscular tension

*Become more mindful

*Learn to breath deeply for full health

*Tune into out bodies inate wisdom

Cost €25

Venue:  Seomra Shakti Yoga Studio, Unit , Zone C Mullingar Business Park, Co Westmeath

Rest, Restore & Reset ~ Time Out For You ~ Sun March 24th 2.30 – 4.30pm

We will enjoy a  slow and relaxing yin and restorative yoga practice. We have long holds in poses supported with bolsters and props to ensure total comfort and ease, wrapped in cosy blankets. The practice will end with a lovely yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep!

At this point of Spring Equinox day and night are of equal length, but not for long.  It’s a good time to focus our intention  on balance. Often we neglect to balance our “doing vs being”  and our life’s  become out of balance.   This workshop offers an opportunity  to address this.  It  is a time out to connect with and nourish ourselfs.  An opportunity to come into stillness  so that you can hear your inner wisdom.  A chance to rest deeply, rejuvenate and gently open and release deep held tension from body and mind.

Rest, Relax & Renew: Easing into the New Year – Sunday Jan 20th 1-3pm

The celtic wheel of the year reminds us that we are still in winter.  It is  still a time for rest & stillness.  For contemplation and taking stock, rather that action.  Honoring this  prepares us to feel more inspired and indeed healthy as the wheel turns and we come into Spring and onwards.  So if you have been too quick off the blocks this January and your body and mind are in need of some TLC and perhaps some grounding, this is the workshop or should I say rest shop for you!

With this practice  we have long holds in poses enabling the body to rid itself of deeply held stagnation and tension which accumulates more easily over the colder months.

This type of practice takes us out of sympathetic nervous system dominance (stress) into parasympathetic dominance (rest and digest), unless we do something to make this switch on a regular basis, we easily become overwhelmed and exhausted!  This workshop combines the most relaxing three practices within Yoga: Yin Yoga , Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

One practice flows into the other and the design and intention of the practice is to uplift and bring about a sense of peace and wellness in body, mind and spirit. These are all different practices but each in their own way help us to experience letting go, of tension, pain/ trauma and foster a meditative state. When we combine these practices together, well, let’s just say relaxation is pretty much guaranteed, and the feeling remains long after you leave the mat.

The Hibernation Sessions – Rest, Relax & Renew – Sunday’s Dec 16th & 30th from 1-3pm

Life can get busy at this time of year. Yet  at a very deep level it is our natural inclination to begin to turn inward, slow down and rest more.   As we move into winter we can observe how nature does exactly this.  This practice by candlelight,  is designed to provide us with  deep rest and relaxation which will promote good  health and energy  for the season ahead.

Become Present – Yoga for Grounding -1-3pm, Sunday October 21st 2018

The theme of this yoga practice is to bring us into the present moment.  Often we live very much in our minds, spending vast amounts of time  planning ahead or thinking back, this yoga practice can help us become more at peace by relaxing in to the here and now, otherwise we often miss the beauty in the present moment.  From an Ayurvedic medicine perspective this practice works with grounding the Vata energy,  and Autumn being Vata season is the time of year that we most need to do this!

Through a combination of Yoga and Meditation practices, we will be influencing the  energy of the root chakra,  bringing our attention from the mind into the rest of our body.   When we are paying attention to the body the mind can begin to come into rest.

When we are not grounded we can become anxious, unsure, and exhausted.   This practice is an opportunity to ground ourselves, physically, mentally and emotionally.  It will include yoga, pranayama and end with restorative yoga, all designed to give you tool’s to  feel more cantered, present and relaxed.

Cost: €25

A 2 hour Yoga practice can be a great introduction if you are a beginner OR a chance to deepen the practice if you already attend classes.
