NOVEMBER NOURISH DAY RETREAT W/ERICA

It is the perfect time to tune in and give thanks for the abundance in your life. A time to cleans the body physically & mentally, giving yourself space for clarity and reflection. These moments offer us an opportunity for renewal, a gentle undoing of held patterns & responses, clearing the way for new perspective and a lighter state of being.

The retreat will be a balance of meditative flowing postures to ease into the body, gently releasing stress and helping to open up the spine and hips to free up the body and mind. Followed by yin/restorative yoga to encouraging deep relaxation. Using passive yoga asanas we let our nervous systems shift and enjoy the benefit of true rest.

The retreat will we held in Eagles Rock Retreat, Carlingford. It is situated in a beautiful lush valley and surrounded by the Cooley Mountains. It is easily accessible from Dublin or Belfast, yet it is set worlds apart. There is no light pollution, no electro smog, no noise. Only the sound of trees rustling in the wind, birds singing, and lambs grazing in the fields.

This retreat is suitable for all levels. It includes a guided walk and a delicious vegetarian lunch.

"The Art of Letting Go" - Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra Workshop w/Sarah

As we transition into the Autumn, this 2 hour workshop will give you the opportunity to slow down and soften, after the busyness of those activity-fuelled Summer days.

Beginning with gently guided breathwork and meditation, you will be guided into long-held nourishing yin poses, inviting softness into the body, whilst also calming the mind.  The practice will conclude with a soothing Yoga Nidra, a softly guided relaxation inviting you to experience a deeper sense of surrender in both body and mind.

Enjoy the magic of Yin and Yoga Nidra, whilst giving yourself the gift of stillness and deep rest.

SELF-LOVE YIN WITH LOVING KINDNESS MEDITATION

This valentine’s day we are offering you a beautiful yin practice with the theme of self-love. In this 90min practice we will be giving love to the stomach, heart, and intestine meridians as we focus on overall self-love. Since a yin yoga practice often includes longer holds, you can use props such as cushions, blankets or bolsters to allow your body to drop deep and open up so you can love yourself and others with more spaciousness and ease.

TESTIMONIALS

“I did the 200hr YTT at Yoga Sanctuary and it was one of the best experiences ever. I researched several yoga teacher trainings and this one was one of the most comprehensive, well-thoughtout trainings. Not only were all the teachers involved SO lovely, they were all extremely experienced and each had their own specialised areas exposing us to several different styles, not to mention all the great advice they gave us. I would highly recommend anyone considering becoming a yoga teacher or even anyone who wants to deepen their practice and understanding of yoga to enrol, you won’t regret it!"

Emmy Rangel, 2020

“I undertook the 200 hr Yoga Teacher training with Erica in the Yoga Sanctuary 2019/2020 and I’m so glad I did. The course is really well structured with a good mix of Anatomy,Yoga Philosophy and Physical practice. I learned so much more than I had imagined I would ,and feel really well equipped with all the necessary skills required to continue teaching and practicing. The teachers were all extremely knowledgeable, capable, gently professional, warm ,informative and fun. If you’re considering this training I’d highly recommend it !!"

Grainne Nangle, 2020

"I would highly recommend doing The Yoga Sanctury’s 200 Hour Teacher Training (recognised Internationally by the Yoga Alliance) The course ran for one weekend per month over 10 months so it fitted perfectly into family life for me. There is so much more to Yoga teaching than I realised and I really feel the past 10 months have deepened my understanding of so many of the different branches of Yoga. The knowledge & experience I’ve gained has already helped me in all aspects of my life and I know it will continue to do so. If your thinking about doing this course my advice would be don’t put it on the long finger, you wont regret it!"

Grace Shanley, 2019

"I completed my 200-hour Teacher Training Course at the Yoga Sanctuary in June 2017. When I started last September, I had no idea what was ahead of me. The course was challenging, both mentally and physically, and it required a high level of commitment, but it has been rewarding and it has fully prepared me for my journey as a yoga teacher. It was very comprehensive and included modules on yoga philosophy, anatomy, teaching methodology and a whole lot more. It has also enriched my own yoga practice. I feel equally grateful and honoured to have had the opportunity to successfully complete this training with 14 other like-minded students, and to have been guided and supported by teachers with a wealth of knowledge and experience. I will treasure this time forever.
Thank you, Yoga Sanctuary."

Geraldine Kerin, Student 2016/2017

“Thanks so much to Erica and all her fab teachers at Yoga Sanctuary for keeping me sane since our first lockdown. I’ve loved how they moved their classes on line and kept it real and engaging.
I’ve actually done more yoga then ever and hope a blended version of future classes is our takeaway from this crisis”

'I can highly recommend Erica's yoga classes. I feel they combine a good balance between exercise and relaxation. You get a good workout but leave feeling relaxed and reinvigorated!'

'Erica's approach to the classes have encouraged me to stick with it! You can work at your own pace and with gentle encouragement you find that gradually muscle tone and overall posture begins to improve. I highly recommend these classes to anyone of any age or fitness level'.

‘Erica's pleasant and uplifting personality makes yoga really enjoyable...medicine for mind and body and soul...a must in today's busy world. I regularly attend Erica's vinyasa flow yoga classes which I love because of the perfect mix for the body of physical, relaxation and meditation. Erica is excellent, she listens to your needs and is very attentive, always adjusting you, so you are in the correct positions.’
