A comprehensive practice of Restorative Yoga, with Meditation, Pranayama and Relaxation. These sessions prepare you for a comfortable sitting home practice using compassionate Buddhist Meditation techniques, followed by a fully embodied Yoga session,and ending in deep Shavasana.
Sighle has developed her own unique style, combining safe Restorative Yoga practice (Qualified with Judith Lasater “relax and renew” in the US) along with flowing Contemporary Yoga sequences (Certified with Contemporary Yoga, Cork) .The 2-hour sessions allows time to move slowly and gently from Meditation, Circle work, Pranayama, then Asanas into Relaxation. These classes are suitable for men and women of all level of fitness. A healthy mix of age at the sessions helps to promote respect and openness to diversity and individuality.
Put yourself and your baby in safe hands
I only had until midnight last night to be able to have a home birth! Wahoo! -such a perfect birth -no intervention or drugs just a good understanding of my body and the breath! Incredible ! Thank you for all the help getting me through it. Mother of Juno, Liz : 7th Oct 2017
‘Sighle, you absolutely got me through it and I really don’t think I could have done or have been nearly as controlled and confident if I hadn’t been doing yoga with you.’ – Juliet’s mum, Rachel (Juliet born on her due date 20th January 2017)

” Occasionally I felt fear and panic set in, but my partner’s coaching of the deep breathing really worked. I would recommend the couples class as it prepared him – he understood what he needed to do. Not having the epidural was fantastic as I had full control over the pushing and was up walking about 45 minutes after delivery. The nurses were amazed at how quickly she arrived, especially for a first baby.” – Laura, 19th of February, 2014
