Workshops & Treatments

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage(AYM) is a combination of deep tissue massage & assisted yogic stretches.

AYM helps to locate and remove particular problem or problems related to the muscles & joints, at the same time improving blood circulation and initiating detoxification of the entire organism. One other important benefit is opening up of the shoulders and chest region, creating a feeling of space in the body.

The stimulation is strong but the effects of an AYM are deeply relaxing and rejuvenating.

Technique:

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage session lasts 60, 75 or 90 minutes. It is performed on a mattress on the floor, allowing for the full range of stretching. Certain props, such as blankets and cushions, are available to make it comfortable.

One  unique thing about Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is the use of a Calamus root powder (Sweet Flag) in combination with oils. The powder helps to release toxins into the blood stream in order to get them expelled, thus supporting deep detoxification of the entire body , improving circulation.

The massage is delivered with the use of both hands and feet.

Benefits:

  • Assisted Yoga stretches (correcting postural imbalances)
  • Improves flexibility
  • Stress relief
  • Stimulating blood circulation and strengthening the lymphatic system
  • Reducing muscle tension and pain
  • Deep detoxification
  • Incorporation of breathing techniques
  • Stimulation with the feet (deeper pressure with long strokes or compression)
  • Use of Calamus root powder (facilitating detoxification, stimulating and exfoliating)
  • Short resting period after the massage, resulting in a feeling of deep relaxation.

Deep Relaxation Yin Yoga with Anne! 

Open to all levels. Cost: €20. Anne 0866093123

Find stillness and greater depth by holding poses longer in a Yin Yoga sequence.
On a physical level, Yin enhances the natural range of motion in the joints. By keeping your muscles soft, you release deep layers of connective tissue, creating more ease in any style of yoga and in seated meditation. On an energetic level, Yin enhances the flow of prana (life force) in the tissues around the joints, where energy often stagnates. Powers likens the practice to doing an acupuncture session on yourself: Sequences are often geared toward strengthening certain energy channels (called nadis in yoga or meridians in Chinese medicine), which ultimately support the organs, immune system, and emotional well-being.

And then there are the mental benefits: Holding poses for three to five minutes often brings up discomfort. Yin conditions you to stay with the intense sensations that arise, rather than quickly moving into the next pose. “It trains you to become more comfortable with discomfort instead of becoming alarmed,” Powers says. “It marries meditation and asana into a very deep practice.
Explore balance in your yoga practice.

During the quiet, deep, still practice of Yin Yoga we hold the postures for longer (3-5 minutes) to gradually release any tension in the connective tissues and fascia of the body.
Places are limited, call or text Anne on 0866093123 to book your place! 20 euro per person.

Restorative yoga is a gentle, internal practice, benefiting mind & emotions as much as outer body, combining mindfulness meditation & relaxation, as the body relaxes the minds quiets allowing reflection & insight to become embodied. Supported by props such as bolsters & blankets in each pose, it is designed to minimize muscle tension & maximize physical comfort & relaxation. Restorative yoga balances the nervous system, releasing anxiety, tension & stress boosting immunity & helping insomnia. Anyone can do this practice, even those with no Yoga experience.
