The Elbowroom Escape
Forrest Yoga With Finlay Wilson
This weekend combines yoga, luxury and lots of fun in the beautiful environment of the West Wicklow mountains – Garden of Ireland.
Enjoy a weekend of 4 individual workshops in the stunning Glen of Immal. Each workshop will be a hands-on experience in developing your individual practice.
Unlocking the Shoulders
The shoulders hold a huge amount of tension. This area of the body is designed to hold the head up and assist in the movement of the arms and when alignment suffers (perhaps from sitting at a desk or other modern day scenarios) these muscles bind like straps to hold the body upright.
Heal Your Back
Many of us suffer from back pain, and as a result, can approach back bending with a degree of apprehension and anxiety. This workshop will break through this by teaching you poses and breath work to bring space and healing to your back. Learn how to revitalise and strengthen your back in order to heal and bring freedom from back pain.
Forrest Yoga Inversions
In Forrest Yoga, we use intense poses to sparkle up our blood and to excite the body. Nothing is more exciting than inversions, turning the world on its head and changing your perspectives physically. Using Forrest Yoga sequences we will stabilise the shoulders, strengthen the core and work on ways to break the anxiety around going upside down by using very safe inversions. Once we have established some foundations, you can play at your level with what would work best to bring aliveness into your body.
Journey to the Core
Our core extends from pelvis to the head, an area with numerous connections. Holding the major energetic centres and chakras this is an ideal place to focus our breath for Yoga Therapy. Exploring abdominal exercises and strong poses we will get warm and look at connecting to this power centre, creating space in the abdominals to create a reflexive and responsive abdominal and core.
