Ashtanga From The Heart
A Workshop with Ríonach O’Flynn
Sunday, 26 August, 12:30pm-3pm
In this 2.5 hour workshop, Ríonach will share more of what she has learned over many years of practice and study with some of the world’s foremost Ashtanga teachers. Designed for those who practise the Primary Series, the workshop will take you through the series, with more time to explore approaches to technique and examine modifications and possibilities for overcoming common stumbling blocks. The workshop will also look at the introductory asanas in Intermediate series and include Pranayama and Meditation, and advice on how to integrate a yoga practice into your life in a sustainable way. We will finish with a guided Yoga Nidra that will leave you deeply relaxed in body and mind.
September Early Morning Yoga & Meditation Challenge with Rob Hinde
Science has shown that taking time out from your daily life to meditate and practise yoga brings all kinds of benefits. Stress and anxiety are reduced, your body is fitter, stronger and more flexible, and over time, you begin to feel more centred and calm in your day-to-day life.
Most of us know all this by now, but committing to a daily practice can be the hurdle we just can’t seem to cross. To help you take up this invaluable habit and keep it up for life, we are delighted to welcome much-loved teacher Rob Hinde back to Greystones Yoga in September 2018 to host a 4 week Early Morning Yoga & Meditation Challenge. The 75 minute class will include Rob’s Spiritual Warrior Yoga sequence for all over body maintenance, pranayama (breathing) and meditation.
The class will run from 6:15am to 7:30am from Monday to Friday, starting on Monday September 3rd and finishing on Friday, September 28th. Cost is €120 for the whole course.
Places are limited to 12. Make the commitment now to start your day with yoga and meditation, and you’ll enhance your mental and physical health for life. Book your place today.
