Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health. You can also use it to relax and cope with stress by refocusing your attention on something calming. Meditation can help you learn to stay centered and keep inner peace.

Candlelit Yin Yoga with Aisling
Friday 23rd Feb 2024
6.30pm - 8.00pm
Join Aisling in the energy of the first full moon of 2024 and the midpoint of winter for a serene yin yoga practice by soft candlelit.
Yin is a quiet and nourishing practice of yoga that focuses on deepening as opposed to moving, slowing you down and allowing you to gently energise and restore your energy.
We will explore long-held, passive floor poses on the mat, supported by yoga props such as bolsters, bricks, blocks and straps. This allows the connective tissue and facia of the body to be gently stretched, increasing flexibility and promoting better joint health . Yin yoga also works with energy and the ancient art of Chinese medicine and meridian lines, helping to restore balance to the mind, body and spirit.
This practice will be done in a warm room lit by the glow of candlelight to allow your body, muscles and mind to completely relax.
Ending with Yoga Nidra you will melt into a deep dreamlike state with a guided meditation and gentle sound healing.
Roll & Release Workshop
Sunday 18th February
11am - 1pm
Roll & Release Workshop with Leanne
In this workshop, Leanne will guide you through some simple myofascial release techniques to ease tension and restore balance throughout the body. We'll focus on those common tight spots, from the feet to the jaw, moving up through the legs, hips, shoulders, and neck.
This session isn't only about practical strategies for easing bodily tension—it's also an opportunity for a deeper exploration of internal sensations, potentially leading to fresh insights into your sensory experience. We will finish with a long, soothing savasana to integrate and enjoy those new sensations of release and ease.
There will be an opportunity at the end to ask questions, share insights and make notes, so that you have the knowledge to work with these techniques again in your own time.
Please bring along a sock (large enough for two tennis balls). If you are working with pain or injury, it's recommended to check with your doctor or physiotherapist as to whether massage is suitable for you at the moment.
Time: 11.30am - 2.30pm
