Why Meditate?

These are some of the reasons why you may like to begin a regular meditation practice:

  • Brings clarity of mind
  • Promotes good health and happiness
  • Can reduce stress and stress related ailments and disease such as high blood pressure, heart disease and cancers.
  • Improves concentration
  • Gives perspective in difficult times
  • Provides a path to intuitive knowledge or a universal intelligence
  • Trains us to be the witness

Practice Tips

  • To meditate you must first have the desire to meditate.
  • Prepare a “sacred” space and make time for your practice.
  • Get the right seated position, be warm and comfortable.
  • You must make sure that you won’t be disturbed. But if it happens, try not to get frustrated … smile and be grateful for having got as far as you did. There is always later in the day or tomorrow.
  • Most importantly, have no expectations. Every day is different.

Meditation to ‘Mind Your Mind’

These were a series of meditation sessions that I ran in 2018/2019 giving you practical tips to develop your own regular meditation practice. They started with some gentle Yoga stretches to prepare your body for sitting quietly which is the first step in any meditation practice. There are well defined steps to develop the discipline to bring you to that quiet space and we explored them in these sessions.

Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and to improve the immunity of the body and the mind. Practiced regularly (15-20 minutes per day) it can bring greater clarity to your thinking and help you to gain perspective.

We will be adding, posts to our blog over time which might be helpful to you on your meditation journey.

I completed my 2 year Satyananda Yoga training in Athenry with the Galway School of Yoga 20 years ago. It was about 700 contact hours at the time. It was a vocation and we ate, slept and dreamt Yoga for that period. Chetan and Shraddha Murti were our teachers, mentors, counsellers and more. We laughed and cried and made friends for life.
Annual In-service training is part of being a teacher and as a teacher, you want to keep learning and exploring.
This most recent training hit the spot for what I needed as a 52 yr old post-menopausal woman. I needed strength more than stretching. I needed to know more, and the anatomy of Yoga, why does it work? How do we get our muscles, connective tissues, nervous system to adapt? How long does it take? It gave me a vocabulary that I was missing, it delved deep into the Fascial Body, demonstrated how Yoga is a Skillful Movement Practice and that Yoga can give you long - term benefits. That is why we are doing it, isn't it?

And on that note, I'm heading to the source for 2 weeks, the Mandala Yoga Ashram, a Satyananda Yoga centre, to chant and meditate, to take care of those subtle elements of this being so I can recharge my batteries and prepare for the busy season ahead and so I can authentically pass some of these practices on to my students.

Om Tat Sat 🙏
I'm grateful to have found Yoga and to be in a position to retreat like this.
Be patient and extra kind to Kevin if your are coming to stay 😍

'Suaimhneas' Yoga day today.
Gorgeous sunshine.
Falafel and hummus filled our bellies.
We walked and swam, warmed ourselves in the sauna and challenged our bodies.
Sank into #shavasana in the end.

A beautifully designed thank you card from our guests this summer. It's on our window-sill and brings us joy every time we see it.
More COOK-YOGA-RELAX weekends planned this summer. People that came last year ranged from single girls to a mother and her two grown-up daughters who wanted some time to connect with activities that they'd all enjoy.
Take a look at purecamping.ie/events to book your spot.

Yoga classes with Trea restarting this week.

This term, we are going to try to boost the weekly Yoga class with 2 early morning (Tue & Thu) mini-sessions which will be "drill" style focusing on particular actions to build strength, stability and range of motion.
The format is 20 minutes of physical movement and an optional 10 minutes of meditation.
The Wednesday class is 90 minutes of Satyananda style Yoga with Breathwork, mindful yet active asanas and Yoga Nidra.
The challenge for me as a teacher is to help my students to develop long term benefits from their practice, physically, emotionally and mentally.
In-room places are very limited but plenty of space in the virtual room. Message me for details on 086 3819 216.
See you soon 🙂 Trea

Found this little video that Tony Whelan of Canola Pictures made a couple of years ago. It talks of an outdoor nature retreat space and that is what Purecamping is whether you are a yogi or not. Some of the detail is slightly out of date but the look and feel is what it's all about. Our full line-up of retreats include COOK-YOGA-RELAX with Siobhán and myself (Trea) and our new Suaimhneas retreats. Take a look and see what suits: https://purecamping.ie/events/
