  • 4-WEEK YOGA NIDRA DEEP YOGIC SLEEP JOURNEY starting Wednesday, 1 November 2023
    4-Week Yoga Nidra Deep Yogic Sleep Journey Wednesdays, Starting 1 November, The Sanctuary, Dublin 7, 5.30-6.30pm Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. Yoga Nidra is the state of dynamic sleep, which is induced by guided meditation. It induces complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. "Nidra" means sleep and "Yoga" means union. ​ In Yoga Nidra, you are guided into a meditative state that is something between being awake and being asleep. Yoga Nidra is not about concentration but about shifting your awareness from point to point, from sensation to sensation. In the experience of Yoga Nidra, you may appear asleep, but you are actually functioning at a deeper level of consciousness. In Yoga Nidra the state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences. This practice gives you space to fall deep into rest, psychic sleep and surrender to its experience moment by moment. During this 4-week Yoga Nidra Journey course you will be guided in deep relaxation practices to improve sleep, relieve stress and boost energy and creativity. Each session will include gentle stretches at the start followed by a 45-50 minute Yoga Nidra.
  • 6-WEEK HATHA YOGA COURSE starting Tuesday, 31 October 2023

In this course, we will practice in a small size group for a deeper learning experience. All levels are welcome. ​ €95
  • 6-WEEK HORMONE YOGA COURSE starting Wednesday, 1 November 2023
    6-Week Hormone Yoga Course Wednesdays, Starting 1 November, The Sanctuary, Dublin 7 6.45-8.15pm Hormone Yoga Therapy was designed Dinah Rodriguez, a Yoga Teacher and Dr. of Psychology from Brazil. She has done a lot of research on the effect of certain yoga practices on the endocrine system. From these studies she developed a set of specific exercises to reactivate hormone production and recommended them to be practiced from the age of 35 to prevent and reduce menopausal symptoms. In women younger than 35, Hormone Yoga helps to improve fertility and to remove symptoms of PMS. Over time the practice has also shown to be beneficial for most other hormonal imbalances, like Thyroid Dysfunctions, Diabetes Type 1 & 2 or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. €75 (6 weeks)
  • Who is Cycle Coaching for?
    Cycle Coaching is for anyone with a menstrual cycle who seeks connection with their body, mind and want to gain a better understanding of the cyclical nature.

This program will help you create a more sustainable way of living that will supports your fertility.

  • Can I do cycle coaching if I am on the pill?
    If you are on the pill, you can still do this coaching program. While on the pill, you will not experience the cyclical patterns of your cycle, in which case we can focus on staying in tune with the lunar cycle. If you are looking to come off the pill, this coaching program can prepare you for returning to the natural rhythm of your cycle. Apart from cycle awareness, this coaching program focuses on body-mind connection, nervous system regulation, self-kindness and compassion and creating a more sustainable and fulfilling way of living. Depending on your needs we can focus on some areas more than others.
  • Can I have additional sessions after the 3 or 6 months?

  • I am on the pill. Is this course for me?
    If you are on the pill, you are welcome to take part in this course. You will not experience the cyclical patterns of your cycle as most hormonal contraception eliminates ovulation so the natural hormonal changes associated with the menstrual cycle do not occur. However, you can still benefit from the course by learning about how your nervous system affects your hormonal health and the importance of looking at our wellbeing holistically to support the body, mind and spirit. You might also choose to create some form of cyclicality by staying in tune with the moon cycle.

    As part of the course, you will get 1 private coaching/check-in session (60 mins).

If you need extra 1:1 support, you can let me know and we will discuss the available options.
  • How much time do I need to commit to this course?
    The weekly Monday session will be 2.5 hours long ( including a break half way through).

I would recommend at least 1.5-2 hour per week for your cycle charting, exercises, journaling and diving into some additional materials that will be shared with you. You are welcome to invest more time depending on your availability and your needs.

  • What if EFT? I have never heard about it before.
    EFT refers to Emotional Freedom Techniques and it is a body & mind method of releasing emotions, stress, limiting beliefs, and trauma that have been trapped in the body. It is also known as tapping. It combines modern psychological knowledge and neurology with eastern wisdom about the energy of the body and knowledge of meridians and acupuncture points. When tapping we stimulate energy points while focusing on the stressful event, emotion, or painful memory we want to resolve. This then reduces/turns off the fight or flight or freeze signal from the brain caused by stress and restores the flow of energy. The whole process of using EFT correctly enhances self-awareness and brings issues from the subconscious mind to the conscious level. This helps you to understand yourself better, and give yourself more empathy, love, and acceptance. You may look at the difficult memory from a different angle you haven’t seen before, and that memory stops being painful.
  • Can I join if I am pregnant?
    Yes - you can attend if you are 12 weeks or more. If you are pregnant, please let us know in advance. The EFT practices are suitable during pregnancy and the yoga practice will offer variations for pregnancy if required. The Ayurvedic meal will be very balanced but if you prefer to have your own food, you can bring it with you.
  • What if I have food allergies/intolerances?
    You can let us know about your food allergies and we will try to have something that will suit your needs.
  • What if I can't sing?
    No problem! We are all there together to expand our hearts. Singing is one of the ways to really connect with our heart space. Anna and Justyna will guide some of the singing which will be simple and available to all. All are welcome to join regardless of your singing experience or ability. Essentially it is about connecting with your voice and your heart and not about performing a song.
  • What is the Sanctuary? I have never been there before?
    The Sanctuary is a meditation centre located between Smithfield and Stoneybatter. It's a non-profit organisation that hosts regular classes and courses related to mindfulness, yoga and conscious living.

  • Ayurvedic lunch? What it it? What is Ayurveda?
    Ayurveda is the traditional holistic healing system from India that views each person as an individual, with a unique mind-body constitution and set of life circumstances. It is known as the oldest medical system and current science proves what Ayurveda said 5000 years ago eg. about gut & brain connection or the importance of the circadian rhythm to maintain vitality and longevity. The aim of Ayurveda is to treat the root cause of the illness by balancing our 3 doshas back to a natural state for optimum well-being. According to Ayurveda, our bodies are controlled by three bio-energetic forces called dosha which are made of a combination of 5 elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. The doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha run all the body functions, and when in balance they maintain life. However, when one or more doshas are out of balance due to stress and the wrong diet, lifestyle, emotional blockages, or challenging life circumstances, it leads to various health conditions. Ayurveda guides us through all aspects of life and the easiest way to start exploring this timeless wisdom is in your kitchen. Cooking and eating Ayurvedically is a very intuitive and joyful process. It's a way to practise self-care, self- love and mindfulness by recognizing your individual needs rather than following a general list of healthy foods. Ayurvedic cooking involves preparing the food following certain principles like 6 tastes, fresh & seasonal food, compatibility and incompatibility of certain food and lifestyle practices around eating. The aim is to prepare a meal that is nourishing, easy to digest and satisfying for body & mind. During the retreat you will be served a simple, vegetarian and nourishing meal that follows Ayurvedic principles, is freshly prepared and consists of mainly seasonal food. You will be provided with some spices and herbal teas that aid digestion making this meal enjoyable to everyone. Please let us know about any food allergies or sensitivities.
  • Can I attend if I have never done yoga before?
    Yes, absolutely! Our yoga practice will focus on opening the heart and is designed for all levels. Whether you have never done yoga before or are a regular practitioner, you will be able to benefit and enjoy the practice. For any practice that might be challenging or new to you, variations and/or detailed explanation will be given to support all participants.
  • What if I cannot attend the full day? Can I still join?
    We feel that it is best if the participants attend the full day. If you would like to attend but need to leave a little bit early, that is OK - just let us know in advance. The price for the one day retreat does not change if you need to leave early.
