Yoga and Mental Well Being Workshops 2019
‘I recently attended one of Naomi’s workshops; I arrived slightly late, feeling stressed and disorientated, she immediately put us at ease, and I left feeling calm, grounded and nourished. She lead us through a series of breathe, movement and mediative practices followed by a series of interesting collaborative and solitary reflections, written tasks and discussions. She always creates a safe non-judgemental space where you can move at your own pace and rhythm. Naomi seamlessly manages to make her classes and workshops reflective and mediative while also physically challenging and explorative. She creates a real sense of individual growth within a community atmosphere; classes and workshops are often followed by good chat, cake and coffee; food for thought, the body and soul.’ Eimear
Befriending Yourself First
June 29th 2pm-4.30pm
My Yoga Body, Dun Laoghaire
Neuroscience research shows us that the only way we feel is by becoming aware of inner experience and learning to befriend what is going on inside ourselves.’ Bessel Van Der Kolk
Befriending yourself is meeting yourself where you are at and trusting your own inner wisdom and care. So often we can cut ourselves off and disconnect from our bodies and minds, we can become stuck a little in habits or patterns we are unaware of. When we are disconnected or distant from, there is less space for acceptance, processing and love.
Befriending ourselves, our present feelings and experience is our gateway to self love, compassion and kindness. It is also our first step towards providing the grounds for experiencing all that is arising and being fully alive in who we are. When we can holistically integrate ourselves into our bodies, minds and breath, we have the opportunity for true friendship.
This workshop will focus on mindful movement practices that will create time and space to be in your body without agenda, rushing or routines. There will be an integration of Breathing practices and relaxation techniques and we will explore ways to feel anew, to enjoy and lighten our loads. From a place of true self friendship, you can find potential and freedom in the world and with others.
Yoga Boann, Ashbourne, Meath
11am-1pm February 17th 2019
In Yoga, we speak of our Spirit, our Higher Selves. In other traditions, there is a connection to Soul, our True Nature. In both of these realms, we can feel, touch and sense the interconnectedness of everyone and everything.
In the blueprint of OurSelves and our Truth, in building our homes, we must begin with solid foundations, with the groundwork.
Our bodies and minds must be cared for and attended to. We cannot bypass our living or skip any steps in our architecture.
This workshop aims to create space to connect to our Awareness in the here and now, cultivating skills to access the ground of our being and existing, for practical and soulful daily living.
We will move through a thoughtful and focused physical Yoga practice and ground and centre in breathing and seated practices. You will be led through some written tasks, deep listening and shared discussions.
Naomi has created this workshop for you to gain a sense of where you are at right now, what you need, body and mind-to lay your foundations for the soulful and spiritual home building of your own Life.
Naomi’s passion in teaching is taking the art and beauty of Yoga and transforming it to your daily actions and life with true understanding and awareness. Naomi will draw on her work as a teacher, her studies in Psychology and her experience in life. The space created will be nourishing, safe, open and insightful.
‘Focus and Align’
My Yoga Body, Dun Laoghaire
January 12th 2019
Do you find that you appreciate Yoga in the moment when you are practicing and then on a day to day basis get drawn back into the overwhelm? In our current time where our attention is being demanded upon in all directions, when we can lose ourselves and our time in hours of entertainment, distraction and consumption- we need more than ever to find our ability to ‘Focus and Align’ with who we are and want to be.
This workshop is for you, if you are a Yoga teacher and you find you have a thousand ideas and have trouble focusing on and taking action on one, if you are a Yoga student who appreciates and values the space Yoga provides and want to enhance your capabilities of applying that to your everyday. If you simply love Yoga and find this medium the best for you to learn and grow.
This workshop will draw on a range of practices to give you the tools and skills to refine your time on the mat and out into your day. The aim is to create a space where participants can tap into a sense of self and shared learning, physically, mentally and soulfully. We will move through a thoughtful and focused physical practice and ground and centre in breathing and seated practices. You will be led through some written tasks, deep listening and shared discussions.
Naomi has created this workshop for you to begin your year with all of your intentions, and also with a sense of how to stay focused on them. Naomi’s passion in teaching is taking the art and beauty of Yoga and transforming it to your daily actions and life with true understanding and awareness.
