I hope that you are all enjoying this beautiful weather and getting time to spend in Nature.
Today we are going to Fanore beach to swim and sun bathe.... some going cycling to Tracht beach for a swim, others having massage and just chilling out at the centre.
The Sun and Moon logo for the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre symbolises the balancing of Masculine and Feminine energies, the Pingala and Ida channels, resulting in energy flowing through Sushumna channel leading to Enlightenment, symbolised by the blue Sanskrit symbol Hung which means Wisdom.
It's important to remind ourselves that we are following yoga and meditation practices in order to get in touch with 'that inner sunshine' that is within everyone one of us.
Within every moment of each day.
These practices help us let go of the 'babble that often preoccupies the mind', and to get in touch with that inner peacefulness, joy and bliss.
So when we see this beautiful sunshine outside, we can use it to remind ourselves that we are learning to cultivate this 'inner sunshine' through our practices.
Today's tip for your practice
The practice of Yoga Nidra involves a San Kalpa which in it's simplest terms means a positive affirmation.
The practice of Yoga Nidra is very powerful at transforming ourselves at a very deep level, and more information can be seen about San Kapla and Yoga Nidra on the website at
Today's tip is to repeat your San Kalpa to yourself 3 times at the start of your yoga practice, and also at the end of the practice. Not just within your Yoga Nidra practice.... but actually at the start of your asana practice.
If you start your yoga practice in Shavasana while doing some breathing practices... it can be nice to repeat it after these practices when you have time to tune in more deeply to yourself.
This brings a much more subtle level to your practice as you remind yourself of those deep inner transformations you are placing your intention to bring into your life through your yoga practice.
This may sound very airy fairy...and not in keeping with the usual analytical way of looking at things.
But you can test this out quite easily, by trying it each day for a month and see what happens.
Inspiration to help us do our daily practice
One small way to help keep you inspired enough to do your daily practice is to go to a weekly yoga class. Over time one will realize that attending a yoga class is not actually your practice.
However it is a great way to inspire you to do your own daily practice each day.
We are continuing to add new yoga teachers to our database that teach in every part of Ire;land.
If you would like to find other yoga teachers that teach in your own area, you can see this under our top level menu "Yoga Ireland" and click on your own County.
Thank you to all of you who have let us know about teachers who were missing from our list.
If you know any any yoga teachers who are still not on our list, please send me whatever contact details you have for them.
