Come As You Are – Weekend Workshop Series

These are workshop-style classes for anyone who wants to improve their understanding of alignment in their practice. Not alignment for any aesthetic ideal, but alignment with connection to the heart, the inner body and the inner teacher as the primary intention or Sankalpa.  One could say that we Align with the Divine! We use the gift of embodiment to work skillfully with the intelligence of the breath and human biomechanics to turn the practice into an art with a scientific foundation.

Workshops take place in Kindred Studios, Strandhill, Sligo (11am – 1pm)

Friday 7th December

Stillness and Flow

Explore the play of Unmoving Stillness and Constant Joyous Flow.  The qualities reflect the Universal powers of Chit or Consciousness & Ananda or an innate Bliss that is woven into the fabric of all things, including you.

This Universal  Ocean of Consciousness condenses itself into each individual as ‘drops’ we call Purusha.  Ananda is the joyous flow of nature or Prakriti.  The one becomes many,

You are one of the many. As above, so below.

We’ll practice strong standing poses and inversions.


2 Hour Level 2 Workshop 

Saturday 8th December

Never Give Up – Always Let Go!

The ancient sage Patanjali offers us Abhyasa as a concept of being consistent in actions, thoughts, speech & practices that lead towards a steady and stable mind, Then by contrast Vairagya where the idea is to let go of fears, aversions and false identities that lead us away from a steady and stable mind.  

We will practice arm balances with these lessons.  Staying full present and mindful to the actions and effort required to achieve these complex poses while at the same time letting go of any ‘ideal’ out come.  

 Balanced action for both the mind and the body


2 Hour Level 2 Workshop 


Sunday 9th December

Steady On

Patanjali does not have a whole lot to say about asana practice, his leaning was very much  more towards meditation.  One thing he does tell us is as follows ‘Sthiram sukham asanam’ – the pose or seat should be steady and easeful.

Let’s check it out with strong standing and twisting poses.  We’ll add into the equation modern biomechanical understanding of how the body moves best and combine the ancient with the now.
