Active Birth Workshops
The Yoga Shed.
Jan 19th, Feb 23rd and March 30th 10am - 2.30pm. €120 per couple.
Having taught over 1000 couples over the past 14 years I would summarise the practice of Active Birth as the simple understanding that in labour when it feels good, it is good. In these workshops, I remind the expectant couples of the innate physical logic of a woman's body. I teach birth partners how to support the labouring woman through understanding the labouring environment - it's movements, breath and tone. Equipping them with touch techniques to help their partners to labour as healthfully, easefully and holistically as possible.
Black Moon Feast
The Yoga Shed
Sunday February 3rd, 4-9.30pm, €100
We start the afternoon with a 3 hour yoga practice designed specifically for women followed by a multi-course feast of delicious vegetarian food prepared by the brilliant Katie Sanderson. The inspiration for this event is the red tent, a place where women gathered for three days when the moon was black. They came together to feast, to laugh, to cry, to rest and restore and recharge by bathing in the essence and energy of each other.
This course is suitable for all levels except absolute beginners.
Women’s Yoga Retreat
The Cliffs of Moher
March 1st - 3rd
It is said when women gather together the world heals a little… when we come together in the spirit of connection, rest and rejuvenation, which we have been doing since time began, we have an opportunity to awaken deep instinctual wisdom. When we lay down our burden and take precious time for ourselves, all who we carry benefit.
Shakti Rising – a practice for women.
The Yoga Shed

Everything you have ever created was born of this vital essence, over this 6 week course we will learn how to tap into and harness the source of our creative power and wisdom. Using the physical to the more subtle yoga practices we can identify and refine this abundant energy within. Shakti, in truth is the energy of all life and our lives are an expression of it.
