The Roots and The Fruits Of the Yoga Tree: Aspire and Be Inspired

  • Yoga Home Sligo 7 John F Kennedy Parade Sligo, County Sligo, F91 WK59 Ireland (map)

Commit to Yourself in this DAY-LONG Yoga Mini Retreat

we explore the not only the roots (origins and fundamentals) and fruits (benefits to body mind & heart) of yoga, but also your roots and your fruits--in other words, what is important to you, what values are you rooted in and what fruits are you hoping for in your life?

Here's a taste of what we'll be exploring, not just in the physical postures and breath practices, but also in mindfulness based meditation and in discussion:

What is yoga? Are there many different yogas? What are the various practices and why do we do them? What are the obstacles that arise along the way and how do we stay with the practice when the going gets tough? How do I take the yoga out of the yoga studio and integrate it into my own daily life in a way that helps me respond wisely to my particular circumstances? 

It is the first session in the Winter Light Immersion series but you can take it as a stand-alone day-long event. In this first session we shall be focusing on setting intention, grounding ourselves in that intention and setting our compass from that place of connection. We will look to the yoga mythology for meaning and inspiration and Ganesha--the elephant headed deity--will be our guide.
