Rest, Relax & Renew at Summer Solstice – Sunday June 24th 1-3pm.

These points on the Celtic wheel of the year invite us to step out of the everyday and check in with ourselves and become more present. Our yoga practice at this time can bring us into a more grounded, contemplative space and also help us become fully present to the summer light and energy.  This practice also helps to balance the more active/yang energy of summer.

A chance to carve out some quality time for YOU, with no distractions.  A practice to bring awareness to body and breath, to unplug from the distractions and stimulation of everyday life.

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.

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 can easily become overwhelmed and exhausted. You will be carefully guided through deep slow stretching and breathing and gently encouraged to release stress on all level. In a nutshell, a practice to recharge your batteries!

Cost: €25

Venue: Phoenix Yoga Studio, Market Point Medical Park, Mullingar, Co, Westmeath

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.
