One of our favourites! Helen Noakes has been guest teaching with us now for 12 years, we celebrate her visit with an indepth voyage through the exciting and deeply therapeutic medium of Scaravelli Yoga.

Helen is a nomadic yoga and bodywork teacher in India, Europe and Scandinavia. She is the co director of the Yoga Health Mandala offering teacher trainings and you can also find her on Ekhart yoga.

Scaravelli inspired Yoga
BKS IYENGAR quoted that our skin is the outer surface of the brain. We could comprehend that the skin is the sleeve of the brain encountering the world. Muscles, connective tissue and fascia are a continuation of the skin of our bones. Muscles are bags of jelly held together with fascia. All of our body is interconnected and all spaces are filled with fluid. We can also see fascia as the organ of shape, connection and disconnection, shape and motion. We will explore how we can feel movement as our inner skins gliding and sliding over one another. We will also enjoy deep rest as a state of alertness where we can drop into feeling the messages our body is waiting to tell us.
This workshop is open to EVERYONE!

Exploring the core
In this workshop we will be de-mystifying the essence of the Core. Where is the core of our body and how do we use it without force? Do we have more than one core ? Yes! We will learn that our core is the basis of our stability and that engaging it intelligently creates space and support. Come and unravel all the beliefs we have around this well debated subject and explore the pathways to dive into the centre of our bodies with strength.

Deepening the twist
How can we move deeper into the twisting postures in Hatha yoga? We will explore how twisting is really a rotation of the spine and the organs inviting the whole body to unwind itself of tension. This will be a fun class packed with tools to help you dive deeper into supine, seated and standing twists.

Yoga, no frills!

Saturday 18th January, 10am - 4pm

Price: € 70

The Yoga House, Tallow

It’s time to get back into the structured discipline of our Practice after the hibernation and/or laxity of mid-winter. We will study basic alignment principles for endurance, mobility & power in our standing & seated syllabus and as always we will come together in a Practice of meditation & concentration, in order to experience the depths of what Yoga is meant to teach us there must be an equal measure of mind and body work both on and off the mat, otherwise it fails to be authentic. A commitment to the regular Practice of Yoga activates us in such a way as to optimize our physical & mental health for life, so see you on the mat to begin or indeed to begin again. Namaste.

Date TBC, 10am to 4:30pm

Spring Opening
A practice reflecting the turn of Spring. An integrated practice of breath, movement and stillness creating building blocks, setting foundation to enable a shift (greater awareness) when practicing the asanas.

Active Restoration
A restorative practice traditionally is done with prop support promoting physical surrender and release. This session including that but also dispersed with ways to help stretch out tired, stiff muscles needing an extra boost from the long cold winter months.

Bio
Gerry began the practice and study of yoga as a teenager. He first qualified and taught as an Iyengar Teacher in 1995, and latterly studied and also taught Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. He was fortunate to have studied both with BKS Iyengar and Shri. K. Pattabhi Jois.

The light of the soul
Iyengar Yoga Workshop

Saturday 25th of April, 10am - 4pm

Price: €70

The Yoga House, Tallow

Laurence O'Toole was formerly a Senior Intermediate Iyengar Yoga Teacher with over thirty years of teaching experience. He began teaching in 1979 at the behest of his teacher, Liz Keeble. From 1979 to 1995 he taught in Bimingham (UK) adult education and private yoga classes. In 1995 he moved to County Cork, Ireland and resumed teaching there. He was invited to teach in Germany in 2001 and at the end of 2002 he took up residence there. During the last ten years he has received invitations to teach workshops round Germany, in Ireland, the States and the Middle East.

How the Soul became identified with the body is a fascinating story. How it escapes its self-created imprisonment is like all escape stories, a riveting adventure, fraught with many dangers. but what actually is the Soul? what is its connection to the physical body? we will explore these questions and their answers though Asana (Yoga Postures) and meditation in this Workshop.

Private sessions with Laurence available from 24th - 27th April inc.
