New Hatha Yoga Class.

We are very excited to now be offering Hatha Yoga at the Centre.  This new class will be starting on the Monday the 27th of April and it may be just what you were looking for.

Hatha yoga refers to the joining and harmonising of the two main energies within us- the masculine or sun energy and the feminine or moon energy.  It is essential to understand and flow with these energies as we find a balance between doing (masculine) and allowing or receiving (feminine). Within this class we will draw upon the practice of asana (postures), pranayama (breath work) and shavasana (deep relaxation), whilst accessing the subtle energies of the chakra system.

This Hatha yoga class will focus on increasing flexibility and strength, whilst enabling the body to soften, open and relax.  The word yoga itself refers to the oneness or union of our being, and the practice in this class will focus upon creating a greater sense of harmony between the physical body, the emotions, thoughts and energetic layers of our being.

As we move through asana (postures) we invoke the power of the breath and activate the chakras to enable us to grow and evolve in our daily life, learning tools and techniques to bring us back into a deeper place of balance, both on and off the mat.

This class is appropriate for complete beginners to more advanced students, as modifications will be incorporated to enable each student to practice at their own unique level.

Places will be limited to 8 people, and must be pre-booked / pre-paid with either a deposit or full payment.

New 4 class term: Monday from 6 – 7.15pm (75 minutes) on the 24th of April, 8th, 15th & 22nd of May- 4 weeks (no class May 1st).

4 class term costs €55, or drop in classes are €16 (space dependent).

New to the Clinic: Facial Reflexology

Facial Reflexology

Imagine that deeply calming and satisfying feeling that you get in your body after an intense workout, where your mind and cells hums with contentment. Now transfer that feeling to your face! The first benefit of Facial Reflexology (which includes deep tissue facial massage) is total relaxation. Facial reflexology can produce a natural Botox effect by relaxing facial muscles; it can tighten the skin by improving muscle tone; and it can give you a healthy radiant glow that makes you look as good as you feel, and feel as good as you look.

How does facial reflexology work?

You may have heard of foot or hand Reflexology. Facial Reflexology works on the same principles, but the treatment takes place on your face and head. This non-invasive treatment is based on the theory that areas on your face are connected to areas of your body, and stimulating them improves underlying energy imbalances which promotes wellbeing. The proximity of the face to the brain is key to the effectiveness of this original therapy.

feel good…and look good!

Facial Reflexology is not a beauty treatment. However, it does have rather lovely beautifying side effects, quite literally ‘lifting’ the face to make your face feel and look smoother and more toned. It also encourages lymphatic drainage, stimulates the facial nerves, increases blood flow and muscle tone, helps to build up new skin tissue and improves skin tone.

Facial Reflexology aims to help reduce the symptoms and effects of many common ailments including stress, IBS, back pain, arthritis, depression, MS, menstrual and hormonal ailments and sleep disorders. Facial reflexology treatments are very popular during pregnancy and are often used to help promote a shorter and natural labour.
