Yoga That Welcomes You

Just As You Are

About our classes

All TRUYOU classes begin and end resting, pausing, and connecting to your breath, to the moment, to welcome yourself, just as you are. The breath will be your companion and guide in your practice. Each mindful breath unites body and mind, helps keep you present so you can be mindfully respectful of your limitations and also know when to gently challenge yourself.  

 

Learning how to breathe well can help you shift your mood, vitality and nervous system responses, manage your energy, and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

Each class will take you on a journey of breath-led movement, mindfulness,  yogic breathing practices, meditation and deep relaxation, to leave you feeling calm, centred and connected, no matter your age, level of experience, or current condition of your body and mind.

MEET TO MEDITATE (All Levels)

These monthly sessions on Tuesday evenings in East Belfast welcome anyone interested in exploring the benefits of meditation, whether completely new, or an experienced practitioner seeking the support of a group practice.   Julie’s relaxed approach welcomes you, even if you think you’re mind is way too busy to meditate.

We’ll begin with short discussion on the obstacles to meditation and common challenges, then move into a series of gentle preparatory movements and breath work which help guide the body, nervous system and mind into greater readiness for meditation.  These movements can be adapted for everyone, whether on a yoga mat on the floor, or sitting in a chair.

Enjoy a guided meditation during each session, using a variety of techniques and approaches from the yoga tradition.  All attendees will receive an audio recording of the meditation so that you can start to build your own home practice.   We’ll finish up with time for reflection, and any questions.   

YOGA FOR BETTER SLEEP (All Levels)

*NEW POP UP SERIES FOR JAN 2020 

There are few things as important to our overall health and wellbeing than good quality deep sleep.   Yet so few of us are experiencing this on a regular basis.

Lack of good quality sleep over a prolonged period of time can have a negative impact on body weight, immune system, cognitive function, energy, mood, mental health, and skin, to name just a few!

These classes are a combination of simple, accessible, yet highly effective and powerful yogic practices that help prepare your body, nervous system, and mind for a nourishing deep sleep.    They'll also help to replenish and revitalise you if your sleep is currently not good and you're feeling tired.

You'll experience specifically targeted gentle physical postures led by the breath, combined with yogic breathing exercises and guided deep relaxation specifically towards getting a good night's sleep. 

Bring along two cushions and a blanket for this class, as well as your yoga mat.   If you don't have a yoga mat, nor worries, I have spares to lend you
