Why practice Yoga?

A Gentle Yoga series for you

🦋 ‘Four lessons towards balance’ 🦋

🦋 A series of 4 mini Yoga programs that are suitable for beginners and those looking for a more gentle practice of Yoga.

🧘‍♂️ I’ve a program for the Hips for you
🧘‍♂️ I look at posture and how poor posture can affect the musculoskeletal system.
🧘‍♂️ I’ve a program for the lower back which uses somatic movements to release deep rooted tension in the postural muscles of the back
🧘‍♂️ Finally, once you are more body aware, you might like to try a program to develop strength and flexibility.

So, join me for one or more sessions in my little Yoga studio at Purecamping 🌿🦋 🌿 🏕

It’s free but if you are able to donate to one of our selected charities, that would be great.

 Session 1: ‘Move those hips’ Donations to the Hope Foundation

Autumn and Winter Yoga courses (online for now)

I (Trea) teach Yoga in Querrin and Kilrush on a weekly basis from September to November and January to April. 

I am teaching on Tuesday and Wednesday nights from January 19th at 8pm on Zoom. Classes will be bookable on the events page very soon.

Normally I would have classes available such as the following:

  • Continuation\Advanced Yoga
  • Gentle Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Pregnancy Yoga
  • Post-natal, Mother and Baby Yoga
  • Childrens’ Yoga

  

Supported Meditation to ‘Mind Your Mind’ 

I have over 16 years of  teaching experience after undertaking training in Galway with Satyananda Yoga teachers, Shraddha Murti and Chetan Murti in 2002. 

Many of the practices, such as the practice of Yoga Nidra were derived from Tantric practices. Meditations  such as Antar Mouna (Inner Silence), Chitakash Dharana (Meditation on the mind space) and Ajapa Japa were all derived from the Tantras.  I usually teach the practices of Meditation on the Breath and Kaya Sthairim (Body Stillness) first, before moving on to the other meditation practices. 

This ‘Mind Your Mind’ series of meditation sessions came about after a number of students mentioned that they would love to do a meditation class separately to the Yoga class. These sessions allowed students to focus on the more subtle practices of Pranayama and Meditation with ongoing support in the form of recordings, notes and personal journaling and follow up classes. 

These meditation sessions ran in 2018 and are not running currently.

Want to find out how to make these winter days a little bit easier?
I'm working on this blog post, or article (which word do you prefer??) https://purecamping.ie/winter-comfort/ but I'm sure that you all have your own methods and rituals to keep you and your family going. I'd love to hear your thoughts, from Netflix to board games, Yoga to cold water swimming, cuddling up under blankets to bracing the elements on a hike. I'll happily add your words of wisdom to this post 🌿🐝🌿

You can keep an eye on #stormbarra at Purecamping here:www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/IKILKEE2?cm_ven=localwx_pwsdashIt will be at its strongest blowing from the NW. Not ideal for Kilkee with 10m wave heights. Still pretty crazy though and the worst to come 🌊#StormBarra #ClimateChaos @wildatlanticway ... See MoreSee Less

The great thing about this time of the year is that sunrises happen at a reasonable hour. There can be a real sense of calm down at the water's edge at this time of the day.I'll try to share some of the wildlife of Loop Head over the next few days and weeks. It will be mostly birds. Wild Loop Head is an initiative of Loop Head Together raising awareness of the incredible natural environment in this part of the world.This is a Little Egret btw. #LoveLoopHead #lovenature #wildloophead #loopheadtogether ...
