Why Not – Wednesdays

Why Not Wednesdays have been great fun and we have loved sharing and hearing all the different ways people support their own wellbeing.

Through the past few weeks we have enjoyed Meditation with John G Coaching, Restorative Yoga with Louise Waters, Drumming Rhythms with Peter Crann, Low Impact Aerobics with Fitness 4 All, Positive Psychology with Feargus Callagy and Chanting with Cathy Murphy.

In our most recent session on the 3rd of June, we finished an Intro to Chanting with Cathy Murphy and have taken a very short snippet of the opening of that session to share with you here.

Cathy describes and guides us through Bhramari Breathing. A very soothing technique but also very useful for cutting through cycling anxious thoughts. Let Cathy guide you here, then take this simple technique into your everyday life.

Wednesday 3rd June @ 4pm

Introduction to Chanting

Why not find out what Chanting is all about…

The lovely Cathy Murphy, owner of Yoga Home Sligo, will have a chat and a chant with us on Wed June 3rd. She will share with us an insight into what chanting is and how it benefits and soothes.  She will then guide us through a few simple and well-known chants to help make this practice a little more familiar.

As you might know, Cathy’s studio is closed during these times so this is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with this lady who’s heart led her to bring Yoga Home to us here in Sligo;-)

Wednesday 27th May @ 4pm

Positive Psychology with Feargus Callagy

Feargus will share insights into what exactly positive psychology is and we’ll explore the ideas around authentic happiness.  What does it mean to be happy? Or is that a reality in a sometimes unhappy world?

We always love a good chat with Feargus and are sure you’ll enjoy this one too. A Master Freediver amongst many other strings to his bow ?, this is a man who knows all about keeping calm under pressure.

All you need is a pen and paper if you want to take notes;-)

Wednesday 13th May @ 4pm

Restorative Yoga with Louise Waters ‘Let it All Go’

Restorative Yoga is a deeply nourishing and healing and recuperative practice for the mind and body. For this session with Louise Waters, we will use blankets and pillows to support the body with three simple yoga poses which trigger the parasympathetic nervous system to achieve a deep level of relaxation. These calming practices release tense muscles, relieve joint aches, and transition the mind and body giving one a sense of peace and calm. Suitable for all levels, from complete beginner to advanced practitioner.

Wednesday 13th May @ 7.30pm

Picking Up the Beat with Peter Crann ‘Let off Steam’

A fun interactive session where we will learn basic drumming rhythms that will have you sounding like a professional as you drum along to your favourite tunes. No experience required, no equipment required (but if you have a drum you can use it of course) suitable for all ages and abilities. Intrigued?? So are we, join us on Wednesday!

Wednesday 6th May @ 4pm
