Balancing the Yin & Yang in your practice @ Little Bird

As winter sets in and the days are getting shorter it is a lovely time to reconnect with your practice, your body and yourself. This Yang/Yin practice is about finding balance and reconnection. Opening into the body and finding that deep sense of stillness that is within us all. Dearbhla will lead a slow vinyasa (Yang) practice focusing on developing strength and flexibility. While moving mindfully with the breath through varying asanas. You will hold poses for a little longer to strengthen and also awaken the muscles.

For the second part of the workshop, you will move towards a Yin practice. Focussing on floor poses that target the deep layers of connective tissue to allow the body and the joints to open up in a different way. There will be an emphasis on hips openers. You will enjoy some long-held forward folds, eventually closing the practice with some calming restorative poses before moving towards our final savasana. The overall practice will help find balance and a sense of grounding and profound calm. 

Saturday, 30 December from 3pm – 5.30pm. Tickets are priced at €35 and are available here
