Yoga & Creativity

In this workshop, we investigate the connection between our innate creativity and our state of mind at any given time. “Creativity” is explored in a very general sense and the art-making that occurs during the workshop serves as a metaphor all forms of creativity: problem solving, decision-making and the production of art objects in general. The Yoga & Creativity workshop clearly demonstrates the necessity for an individual to feel safe and grounded in order to be creative.

The workshop incorporates mindfulness meditation, gentle restorative yoga, yoga nidra, art-making, and elements of Pauline Oliveros’s Deep Listening® framework. It is suitable for curious and creatives types, experienced yogis / meditators & complete beginners. No previous experience in any of the elements is necessary. Art-making materials are provided, and participants are free to take their artwork home with them at the end of the workshop.

Suitability / Level: This workshop is open to everyone and no prior yoga experience is required.

Reviews

  • “Daithí’s yoga and creativity workshop was an offering straight from the heart. The combination of drawing, meditation, yin, yoga nidra, and live music made the experience truly unique and therapeutic. The meditation helped settle the mind and the yin, and yoga nidra encouraged us to inhabit our bodies. Drawing from an embodied place and expressing ourselves through art was a beautiful experience. Drawing and painting and not feeling a sense of value judgement on the aesthetic was liberating. Would highly recommend this workshop to all people, regardless if they feel an inclination towards creativity or not.”Con Sheehan
  • “I attended Daithi’s Yoga & Creativity workshop recently and it was an amazing experience! Yin part was lovely, Yoga Nidra was just divine. Creativity is something that most of us are struggling with on a daily basis – This workshop will help you to discover it in you and draw/paint from the heart in order to figure out what you need in a particular stage of your life. It doesn’t matter how good/bad you are at drawing/painting – You will be surprised how much creativity you have – You just need to unlock your potential.”Oksana Burke

 


Yin Yang Flow

A spirited level 2 hatha flow followed by a deeply restorative Yin yoga practice.

The Yang portion consists of a slow hatha flow where poses are held to develop strength, mindfulness, and stability.  The practice focuses on hamstrings, quadriceps and core engagement to prepare for back-bends and inversions.

Yin yoga can be considered both preventative and restorative. The meditative practice of stillness enhances the yin aspects (quality) of chi. A complimentary practice to yang yoga, it helps prevent joint rigidity and immobility, while simultaneously nourishing the meridians.

This workshop will leave you enlivened, revitalised and deeply rested in body and mind!

Suitability / Level: Not suitable for beginners.


Rest & Digest

A deeply restful, rejuvenating and restorative workshop incorporating Yin & Restorative Yoga, ending with a blissful Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep). The workshop is designed specifically to stimulate the body’s parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) which is also known as the “Rest & Digest” aspect of our autonomic nervous system.

The Yin & Restorative yoga elements will bring the mind and body close to a state of total relaxation. Yin yoga poses are passive floor poses that work mainly on the lower part of the body. The poses stimulate the meridians of the body, balancing the body’s internal organs and systems. The workshop concludes with Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep. Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, in which the body is completely relaxed.

Be kind to yourself.

Suitability / Level: This workshop is open to everyone and no prior yoga experience is required.

  • 5* – “What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon. A wonderful workshop, will definitely go again, when is the next one. Thank you so much.” Review from MindBody
  • “Cleverly structured and thoughtfully delivered, Daithí’s “Rest & Digest” workshop was the perfect reintroduction to yoga after a long break. I left feeling connected to bits of my body I hadn’t said hello to in a while and had a deep, sort-your-head-out sleep afterwards. Just what I needed! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a gentle and restorative workshop.”Hannah Hamilton

 


Soul Sessions / Soul Sundays

Yin Yoga to the sweet sounds of soul music – even better than it sounds!

Up to two hours of blissful Yin Yoga, surrendering to long delicious, at times supported, postures that help relieve the effects of chronic stress, served up with a soundtrack of sweet soul music. Good vibrations to ease the soul. The combination of Yin Yoga (an inward-looking, meditative practice) with soul music (the universal yearning of the heart for a re-connection with the source) creates the unexpected and euphoric effect of a deep and regenerative re-connection to the heart and soul.

Suitability / Level: This workshop is open to everyone and no prior yoga experience is required.
