When doing is all we know, being is just another word for ceasing to exist. When being begins to flow through dance and paint and song, joy is no longer luxury but absolute need. – Marion Woodman (Jungian Analyst & Author)

BodySoul work 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.

BodySoul teaching has a strong base in the psychology of C.G.Jung, as developed by Jungian analyst Marion Woodman, dance educator Mary Hamilton and voice coach Ann Skinner. Some current BodySoul programmes are explicitly informed by attachment theory and emerging research from the field of neuroscience.

Prerequisite:

Participants have/are attending Psychotherapy

What to bring:

Your weary body !!, soft blanket /throw, dream journal or note book

Lynn spent 30 years in education and is trained in Stress Management. She came across meditation and yoga in her early twenties and has practised both since. Her own particular journey through a debilitating illness lead her to a different kind of yoga/movement and mindfulness practice which resulted in the creation of her ‘Be Here Now’ workshops. These workshops give participants an opportunity to take time for themselves in the wonderful space at Clonlea Yoga Studio. Each workshop consists of very gentle mindful movement, visualisations, breathing, relaxation, uplifting words and some fun. All of which facilitate present moment awareness.

Sound & Chant

with Eleanor

Next Workshop
8th June

Saturdays (Monthly)
10am – 12pm

€25 per session

These workshops combine working with sound and movement (yoga postures), seated work with sound, and also seated Vedic chant. The sound work is accessible to anyone: my aim is to help people find their own “voice”.

These 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. Working with sound is potentially empowering and freeing – as well as very enjoyable!

Before I became a yoga teacher, I was (and still am) a flute player specialising in early and contemporary music. I always had a fascination for the power of sound to open up energy within our system, and of the therapeutic potential of resonance within the body.Eleanor Dawson

Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body through the development of asanas. Through the practice of a system of asanas, it aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well-being. This discipline is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well-being.

I like to link my yoga teaching to everyday life: to the cycles of our lives and of nature, so we become more in tune with ourselves and the world around us. I generally take a theme for the term, and develop it as the weeks go by, so there is a sense of continuity and growth through the term. I also draw on words and ideas from yoga teachings to enrich our felt experience in the practice.
