Winds of Change

It's almost a month since I finished Radiotherapy. So...I'm off on holidays to Slovenia. I've a video planned in my head, but now it's time to pack and prepare for my first time away since I was diagnosed last year. Another step forward in my life.
I've been making plans for a return to teaching Yoga in September. A new venue, new beginnings !
Starting on the 27th August with a day of Yoga. It's an opportunity for students to visit and /or attend Yoga in the new room. Details below.
 Winds of Change. A day of Yoga

Sighle Mc Donnell will create a safe, gentle environment to explore the need to adapt to the changing winds of life. This workshop is open to anyone who has the willingness to venture within, and listen to whatever is calling for healing and change.
This is a day to allow Meditation quieten the busy mind, and release us from the pressures of daily life. The flowing Yoga Asanas can evoke openness to our vulnerability. Thus encouraging us to explore the profound relationship between the energy we need to adapt to change and the consciousness to choose wise and creative responses to our life circumstances. Relaxation on the day will help to integrate and settle any insights, or visions of how to move on, forward in our lives.

Simple Meditation to Quieten the Mind

Sometimes, the energy just isn't there to start into a Yoga practice. Meditation can be very useful at times like this, when my mind is busy- yet my body tired. I enjoy the practice of Metta, loving kindness, but this Meditation uses sound to focus the mind on the present moment. It calms and settles the emotions; bringing me to a place of inner peace and serenity. Join me in this short (10 mins) simple practice which is suitable for complete beginners or "old hands" alike. Nemaste.
