WHAT STUDENTS SAY:

I signed up to Exploring Yoga’  as a relative newcomer to yoga, with the hope of deepening my understanding of the practice (on both a philosophical and physical level). I got all that and more from the course: Ríonach is an incredibly experienced and intuitive teacher, who expertly managed a group with significantly different levels of experience. I found the course enriching and motivating, and it has helped me in developing a more regular and consistent yoga practice, that goes beyond merely practising the asanas. I feel that this course is just the start of my yoga journey and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about yoga, but is perhaps not ready to embark on the full 200-hour yoga teacher training, as well as those who maybe have more experience, such as yoga teachers or regular practitioners, who want the space to revisit or further explore certain aspects of the practice.” Molly Joyce, Exploring Yoga student, January – July 2021

Mindful Adjustments

A 3-hour workshop for teachers & students
Saturday 19th November
10 am – 1 pm, €45

Skilful adjustment is a much-loved feature of the Ashtanga yoga practice. It can help a student build awareness of their body and discover the optimum version of a pose for their unique physique. It can also help them feel safe, nurtured and deeply connected to their practice. The pandemic kept adjustments off the table for a long time, so you may be feeling a bit rusty when it comes to this element of your teaching. Or, you may never have had the kind of instruction that gives you the confidence to offer safe, mindful adjustments.

Just in time for the September “back to yoga” term, this workshop will show you when, why and how to adjust some key poses and how sometimes, minimal adjustment can work wonders. It will also show you when to avoid adjusting altogether and how to offer alternative cues to your student.
