Yoga is for Everybody!
You don't have to know what you are doing to particapate in a yoga class, no body is perfect, it is not about the pose. Yoga is a beautiful method to allow you to just be in the present moment it is a moving meditation allowing you to silence the mind and move energy blocks from your emotional body. Through the practice of regular yoga the goal is to be content with who you are. You are perfect exactly as you are!
You don't need a fancy yoga studio to practice you don't even need a mat! in fact all you need is already within you. The fact that you have a body means you can practice. Asanas are performed using your own body weight as resistance. Yoga teaches complete freedom from all external resources. and leaving out all expectation what I love about yoga is the quieting of the mind and the peace it brings once we allow ourselves to just be in the moment withdrawing from our senses we are in a state of bliss everything else can wait.. I practice yoga in nature so to connect with mother earth I love to hear the birds singing, the river flow and the cool grass beneath my feet.. Living in Wicklow surrounded by many lakes and stunning woodland walks why on earth would I want to be indoors.
In my classes I speak of the importance of yoga philosophy delivered in a gentle way to help you live a holistic lifestyle. The physical practice of yoga (ie the poses) is only one limb of yoga the other seven limbs teach us how to live yoga off the mat. If you imagine yoga as a tree with eight branches each branch represents a limb, Pranayma, (breathwork) Samadhi (bliss) Dharana (focus) Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses) Dhyana (meditation) Asana (Poses) Yamas and Niyamas (How we treat ourselves and others)
I believe in order to live a calm peaceful life and to enjoy all life has to offer we must be true to ourselves we must love ourselves be confident in our choices and strong enough to achieve our goals. There is a saying we are what we eat so if food can nourish our physical body imagine what you could achieve if you really believed in yourself, if you spoke with loving words of encouragement and celebrated your achievements and never gave up. This is possible a life you love! a life you create we are all creators born to with curiosity no fear and unconditional love for all its what we learn throughout the journey of life that shapes us into who we become so become great !Become unstoppable become a warrior a hero in your own story.
Sound Baths at Serenity Healing
Find your Calm
A Sound Bath is an intuitively guided experience designed to provide an environment where energy that is no longer needed can be released, shifting the mind, body and spirit into a deeply relaxed state of being. Participants are bathed in powerful vibrations that help entrain their brain waves into Theta. It is in this deeply relaxed state that physical / mental / spiritual healing can take place, activating the parasympathetic nervous system, cellular regeneration, stress release, and emotional/physical healing.
Participants lay in a comfortable position on the floor (savasana), while Avril plays the crystal bowls and chimes accompanied by her vocal toning. Many people have reported physical healing, and often experience a night of deep rejuvenating sleep after the sound bath. Please bring anything that you may need to feel comfortable lying on the floor for the savsana. Blankets, pillows, yoga mats etc. are welcome. Wear comfortable clothing and please be hydrated before and after the event.
During a Yoga Sound Bath, the yoga practice is accompanied by crystal bowl and chime playing. The vibrations and tones assist your movements and brain, shifting your mind into a more meditative state and allowing you to go deeper into your practice. The yoga portion of the class is followed by an extended sound bath savasana, where Avril adds vocal toning to the crystal bowls and various other soothing instruments!
