Complementary Practices

Over the years Clonlea Yoga Studio has welcomed an increasing range of body and mind oriented practices that complement yoga and the studio ethos. While some take the form of one off workshops, there are a number of weekly and monthly classes.



BodySoul Community Group

with Abigail Whyte


6.30 - 9.30pm
€50 per session

15th Sept, 20th Oct, 17th Nov, 8th Dec,
12th Jan, 2nd Feb, 23rd Mar, 13th Apr, 18th May, 8th Jun

The BodySoul Community Group follows Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Method. It holds that the psyche and soma are inseparable; therefore, body and mind are explored together in the service of healing and growth. BodySoul programmes involve listening to the body and paying attention to unfolding dreams. In this way, guided by the Self, space is provided for the unconscious to emerge through movement, voice-work, painting, journaling, myth and mask making.

Prerequisite: participants have/are attending Psychotherapy
What to bring: Your weary body !!, soft blanket /throw, dream journal or note book

Be Sound

parent-toddler music workshop
for 1 and 2 year old toddlers

with Ríona Sally Hartman 


11am - 12pm
€15 for one adult and one toddler
€5 for an additional adult 

17th Nov, 24th Nov & 1st Dec

Enjoy songs from around the world in these parent-toddler workshops lead by Ríona Sally Hartman. You and your child will have fun learning folk songs to accompany and help with everyday activities, for example an upbeat South African dance song for when the family needs a pick me up, or a relaxing Japanese song about cherry blossoms for when you all need a wind down. During the fifty minute workshop, little ones will get to play musical games and some simple percussion instruments, and parents will learn new ways to share and experience the joy of music with their children.

If you are interested in the workshop but your child is not within the age bracket, please get in touch. Classes for new age groups will be created if there is a demand.

Sound and Chant

with Eleanor Dawson


10am - 12pm
€20 per session

16th Sept, 4th Nov, 2nd Dec,
20th Jan, 10th Mar, 14th Apr, 19th May, 23rd Jun

We combine working with sound and movement (yoga postures), some seated work with sound ,and also use some seated Vedic chant. The sound work is accessible to anyone: my aim is to help people find their own "voice". Working with sound is potentially empowering and freeing – as well as very enjoyable! The workshops can help people who have lost confidence with singing or any type of performance. The aim is to connect more deeply with our selves from the inside in a safe way and to explore our own resonance and creativity.
