a morning of yoga, nutrition and mindfulness
Sylvia Ferguson BBS, dip. YTI
Sylvia’s love of yoga and dedication to her practice, studies and students is apparent in her classes. Her attention to detail in the language she uses and her thoughtful sequencing encourages students to be mindful in body and breath. The goal is to focus attention; the result is a deep sense of lasting calm and a physical practice that is both safe and challenging. Weak spots become stronger; areas of tension and tightness soften. She guides each student to focus their awareness deeply on aspects relevant to them, at that moment, always seeking balanced effort. She teaches Hatha, Ashtanga, Yoga for Pregnancy, School Students, Kids Yoga, Meditation and private yoga classes. Her classes flow seamlessly influenced by the many teachers and workshops she attends on an on-going basis. All are welcome, young and old, bendy and stiff, lapsed yogis and rusty yogis.

On sunny days, if there is any way possible, she will try to find a grassy, tree-sheltered spot to take the class outdoors. Sylvia has been teaching for 10 years, a much loved teacher who tends to attract a devoted following. She has been teaching in RTE for 8 years and in various other centres, studios, schools, homes and fields around Dublin.

Rachel Moore - Mindfulness
Rachel Moore was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 and was introduced to mindfulness to help cope with the stress of the illness and found it transformed her whole life.  Living, studying and practising a mindfulness lifestyle, for the past 5 years, has brought a totally new way of living from Moment to Moment, in present moment awareness and has helped her cope with living with secondary breast cancer. Rachel teaches voluntarily in the local community and in the local primary school in Rathfarnham and is philosophical in her approach on how to remain calm inside, even in the midst of adversity.

Rachel emphasises on how mindfulness cannot be taught, only practiced but introduces you to the tools, which are inside all of us, to use and to reach down into our own inner wisdom, to connect with nature and bring us back into balance and keep us grounded. Rachel believes in sharing her experience of living life in 'Moment to Moment awareness', with others, is the best way, to encourage one another to change ourselves to a more mindful life and it's baby steps that help to change the world....
