The Galway City Yoga Festival will take place in Knocknacarra Community Centre on September 10 from 9.30am to 6pm.
Nourish your mind, body, and soul with a host of different kinds of yoga from absolute beginners to advanced, to deeply spiritual, to mindfulness and meditation. From an evening of embodiment and movement medicine to breathing techniques, from wild and free to calm and content and back again, in a location surrounded by the beautiful trees and nature of Barna woods, with massage and holistic therapy available on site, this is not a festival to be missed.
The organisers are bringing together a group of amazing teachers to share their knowledge and wisdom for this one day festival. There will be a variety of yoga styles coming from traditions based in the north and south of India, including Hatha yoga, Ashtanga, flow, gentle, partner, kundalini, gong baths, Ayurveda, mindfulness and neuro-plasticity, meditation, chanting, and much more.
The teachers include Paul and Katrina Hardiman from An Seomra Yoga (Galway ), Emma Mooney teaching flow yoga, Linda Martin teaching kundalini, Aisling Reidy from Optimum Health bringing an awareness of mindfulness and psychotherapy to the practice, and much more. Extras include a funky dance workshop, gong baths, and Ayurveda.
Over the course of the day there will be 11 different classes/workshops and there is something for everyone. This one day retreat is a great getaway to relax the mind, awaken the heart, and restore and rejuvenate the body. For details contact 087 6722395, email [email protected], or see www.optimumhealth.ie
