Winter Light Series: Yoga and The Art of Dancing With Life

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


The Winter Light Immersion Series is designed to help you connect with your innate strengths and inner fire, your inner capacity for light, heat, wisdom and love even as the weather grows colder and the days grow darker.

Yoga & the Art of Dancing With Life is the sixth and final session in the Winter Light Immersion series but each day-long is valid as a stand-alone experience and the threads of connection across all six sessions in the series will be woven into this final day of exploration, mystery and revelation. Whether you've explored some or none of the other sessions in the series, great benefit can be found in even just this one day of winter light yoga—you’ll leave with resources to take off the mat and into your life.

The Dancing Shiva, is celebrated in yoga, whether in the classic form of the Ananda Tandava (Dance of Ecstasy), the image found in many yoga studios and the iconic image of yoga, or the challenging but heart opening and exhilarating Dancer Pose (Natarajasana). These difficult and complicated "dances" are seen as the containing all the facets of Being--the joy and the pain, the challenge and the ease, the grit and the grace,, as well as the whole cycle of existence; creative, preservation, dissolution, concealment and revelation.

Join us as we explore the myths and the meanings of these shapes through breathwork, movement, meditation and discussion. The wisdom we tap into with yoga practices does not make the difficulties disappear, but rather allows us to Dance with Life's mysterious rhythms. 

We'll explore cultivating a home yoga practice so that you tap into your own resources as your own life teacher, and discuss the natural cycles of growth, excitement, boredom, withdrawl and renewal on the yoga path as we take the practice off the mat and into our everyday lives. As always lunch from the fabulous Sweet Beat cafe is included, as is complimentary herbal tea and chocolate :)

Don't you deserve a day of retreat to tend to essential self-care as the whirl of the holidays descends upon us? Sign up soon and get ready to Dance with Life.
