Gentle Yoga with Joanita for the Front Line heros

The Art of Gentle practice – The New Modern Yoga

Joanita will be holding a stunning class for all of our front line workers on Sunday the 19th at 1pm. She is looking forward to creating the perfect class for you to help you settle into yourself again. We are taking names now.

The journey of each yogi into yoga begins for is very special. For many, yoga provides that relief from physical, mental, emotional pain or otherwise.

I am a very long-time yoga practioner and was trained by some of Ireland most senior Yoga teachers. My ultimate yoga journey always leads me to create a yoga practice accessible to anyone, regardless of age. That is why I have introduced that most popular class at the studio called the Art of Gentle Practice. It is New, it is Modern and it has allowed the most insecure individual to walk into that class and be at ease with his/her own practice.

Yoga Flow with Elaine Gemmell for you the Front Line Staff

Passionate and inspirational, Elaine will bring a creative energy to this class. Her therapeutic approach is student focussed and celebrates the unique challenges of each and every body.

She is really looking forward to guiding you through this flow class as a heartfelt thank you for all that you have done and are continuing to do. This class is on Saturday the 18th at 10am and we would love to add you in.

Mixed level class. Some experience of yoga is beneficial, but not essential 

In vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next. Each movement in the series is cued by an inhalation or an exhalation of the breath.

Hatha yoga with Aoife Moore for you the Front Line Saff

Yoga with Aoife Moore is an enriching practice of ‘acceptance of self’ through Hatha yoga.

She has volunteered her time especially for you, the front line staff who have tirelessly worked around the clock to keep us safe, fed, warm and well. This class is on Sunday the 19th of July at 3pm and we would love to add your name down.

The class is less about achieving aesthetic alignment and more about connecting with your true self and focusing more on functional alignment.

In this class Aoife invites you to increase awareness in your body and breath while bringing you through mindful asana movements, progressing naturally to pranayama (yoga breathing techniques) and ending with a centering meditation.

The result is a heart-opening, body-strengthening, grounding experience.

Knowing that yoga is not what you see…yoga is what you feel.

I look forward to meeting you on the mat.

Not just an extra pair of hands

More than just an extra pair of hands

When I was a kid, the role of the father was always that of the bread-winner, the person who you saw late at night or on the weekends and sometimes the threat that our mothers always used; “wait till your father gets home”. This was just how it was. As I have grown older and have had children myself, I see it was much more than this.
Our fathers taught us the importance of a strong work ethic, responsibility, compassion and respect. Considering that their fathers possibly had even less interaction with them, these things are invaluable.

My relationship with my father has never been stronger than it is today. He is someone I can go to for advice on my business, a pillar of strength if I need help emotionally and an amazing grandfather to my two boys. He is continuing to teach my boys all of these vital tools while enjoying not having to be the bad cop anymore, just the jelly bean supplier.

My father taught me that I am worth respect and kindness, that I can do anything I put my mind to and if doesn’t work out at least I tried.

If mothers are the heroes of child rearing, significance of a father in the development and emotional well-being of a child is no less. But over the decades, a lot has changed. It is often said that daughters are closer to their father because they are the first ideal man in their life. On the other hand, for sons, father is an idol and the strongest man they aspire to emulate.

With the growth of nuclear families and both parents working, fathers do not shy away from taking care of their children. From changing nappies to putting their children to sleep, no task is difficult for modern-day fathers. This cultural change is helping in strengthening father-child relationship and consequently in emotional development of a child and building of stronger family bonds.

Often, contribution of a father in their children’s lives is overshadowed by that of the mothers. They are not given the due credits for their participation in the development and upbringing of their children. Fathers are equally important like mothers and play a significant role.

So, to the fathers in our lives, I personally want to thank you for not just being another set of hands. But standing side by side with your partners and showing our future generation that a man can be strong, caring, nurturing, approachable and an invaluable role model.
Happy Father’s Day for June 17th.

WE WON

WE WON.

I am extremely pleased to announce we have been successful in winning the award for:

SERVICE EXCELLENCE – IRELAND

The Luxury Travel Guide Awards represent the pinnacle of spa & wellness, championing the best in their respective fields; therefore to come out on top is truly an achievement you should be proud of. We are delighted to pay tribute to and commend all those who have excelled in the industry. This year has seen an unprecedented number of shortlisted companies, providing strong competition in every category.
All winners of the spa & wellness awards are subject to the same rigorous assessment criteria, carried out by our in-house professionals. This ensures only the most deserving companies and individuals walk away with one of these prestigious accolades.
As our achievements are client centered primarily, we would have numerous personal and professional achievements to our belt, from helping couples get pregnant, helping people get that job they wanted by teaching them stress reducing tools through hypnotherapy and counseling, helping a mother through the first couple of weeks after giving birth. As these are all a private and personal journey for our clients, it can be hard to get external recognition for our work.
So this means so much to me and everyone here River Holistic Centre.
Thank you one and all.

Claire
