In these 6 week Beginning Mindful Yoga courses we work with the fundamentals of Mindfulness and Hatha Yoga and explore how they work together to help us find more ease and peace in body and mind. On the continuum of yoga styles, some gentle, some vigorous, this is a more physically gentle style of practice, tending towards a slower flow when we flow from one pose to another and often pausing to break down the elements of the yoga postures and modifying poses using props. We’ll also incorporate deeply relaxing restorative yoga poses and meditation.
Each course will have a particular mindfulness teaching as a focus for that 6 week period so that students can explore the teaching with some depth.
This course is perfect for those brand new to the practice of yoga and/or mindfulness and also for those returning after a time away. It's also suitable for those who may have an established practice with the physical postures and breath practices of yoga but who may not have trained specifically in the practices of mindfulness psychology and philosophy.
We'll work with;
-breath awareness and engagement
-both gentle stretching and some strength building movement
-both mindful stillness and moving mindfulness practice
-incorporating mindfulness psychology into everyday living
Our focus not on getting good at poses or "perfecting" the body or ourselves but rather befriending the body mind and our experience of our situation so that we can both release physical, mental and emotional tension while at the same time building strength, resilience and courage in body mind and heart.
This class is suitable for all.
All beginning classes at yoga home sligo will vary from course to course in the particulars of content, so that students can benefit from taking multiple beginning courses.
