The Soulful Weekend Workshop
Pranayama - Mantra - Meditation - Yoga
A workshop exploring how pranayama, mantra and meditation can transform your yoga practice.
Over 2 days we will workshop how our Yoga practice can extend far beyond the postures and we can begin to understand how all encompassing and expansive yoga really is. We will demystify pranayama, gain confidence in chanting, and learn powerful meditation techniques through embodied practice. This workshop allows you to learn these powerful and ancient techniques by experiencing their power first hand through guided and self practice. As part of the workshop you will also receive a beautiful booklet to take home with you, so you can continue them as part of your own self practice. Be prepared to be inspired and connected to a yoga practice that is sacred, grounded in tradition and demonstrates how life changing yoga really is.

The practice and understanding of the breath and pranayama is a
topic explored in many texts. This course aims to help you understand pranayama primarily as an energetic practice. An experience that you can feel.
Head out and explore the local cafes with other students or feel free to spend time journalling, taking a walk along the beach and exploring the beauty of Sligo.
Exploring not only profound meditation techniques, but also the energetics and intentions behind our practice.
We will gather together at a local restaurant- this is not included or mandatory but we encourage you all to join, debrief and have some fun together!
‘Sian’s 3 day training ‘Creating a Soulful Practice’ was one of the most whole hearted and inspired trainings that I have taken in my many years of yoga teaching. Sian so eloquently weaves pranayama, mantra and meditation into her classes and gave us the tools to do the same. The training was a beautiful blend of experiencing the benefits of yoga, plenty of opportunity to practice teaching what we had learnt and finding our own authentic voices. I now feel confident and inspired to teach beyond asana. Thank you Sian for so generously sharing your knowledge and passion, you are a true goddess' Kathy
'What an incredible three days, I loved all the different modules, learning in depth, the different breathing techniques, mantra, kundalini, pranayama, the morning practise and of course the yoga nidra. Even though I’ve been a student of yours for 3 years, I was now able to see how it all comes together....and you facilitate it with such ease. It definitely was a profound week and have bonded with so many beautiful yogis along the way....thank you for always encouraging me and supporting my yogi journey....looks like I’ll be attending part 2 of the soulful practise ️' Teresa
'Sian is not only beautiful on the outside, but also and equally on the inside. What an amazing teacher with no judgment of any kind. No question was too silly or too much! Sian was so inclusive. We came away with a much greater knowledge on how to be good teachers from a place of felt awareness. Thank you Sian. You are such a beautiful free spirit' Yvonne
