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

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

Sound and Chant

with Eleanor Dawson


10am - 12pm
€20 per session

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.
