Returning To Gentle Yoga After Injury or Illness

Check this wonderful lady out. I’m very proud of her. Personally I love welcoming people to my class who have been unable to exercise for a period of time, due to illness, an injury or perhaps a body image perception. Read more

Garden & Lawn Flower Mandala

Flower Mandalas, A Creative Way To Destress

Garden & Lawn Flower Mandala

Garden & Lawn Flower Mandala

Today I want to share with you a simple and enjoyable way to meditate outside. It was the lovely Fiona at Nourish & Flourish who first tweaked my interest in flower mandalas when she posted her own beautiful creations.

I found that creating a flower mandala was a lovely gentle way to bring myself into the present moment, tune into nature, switch a busy mind off and connect with my creative and spiritual side. I was surprised that the process of making a mandala was in itself a meditative practice. Read more

Kombucha with edible flowers – Herb Robert, Borage & Thyme blossom

Here’s my simple first timers Kombucha recipe. Kombucha is a homemade drink rich in healthy gut bacteria and yeast. It’s a drink I like to have daily to ensure that my naturally occurring flora and fauna are topped up to their full potential. Since the dawn of humans we have evolved alongside these probiotics, our guts are a symbiotic ecosystem and their role inside our bodies is to aid digestion, improve the absorption of nutrients, make vitamins bioavailable for absorbtion and prevent toxic digestive waste from crossing the gut wall barrier. Without these probiotics within our intestines … we are quite fecked!

Edit : I’ve now made a video guide too, check it out here How To Make Kombucha

June Yoga Classes, Carrick on Shannon

Yoga Classes, Carrick on Shannon, June 2015

Yoga Classes, Carrick on Shannon, June 2015

If you’ve wanted to try out yoga for a while then why not give it a go this month? Join a class that suits your level on Wednesday evenings or Thursday mornings in Carrick on Shannon, Bridge Street.

Wednesday 6pm or 7.30pm
Thursday 10.15am or 11.30am

All classes are suitable for beginners/improvers except the 11.30am which is a strong yoga class.

I usually write about the benefits of yoga when I’m publishing class schedules but this time I asked my current students if anybody would like to write something that might inspire a beginner who may be feeling a little apprehensive about joining … so Ruth kindly posted this over on my Facebook page. I hope that if you’ve been considering trying yoga, that Ruths words will encourage you to pick up the phone to call me for a chat, text, email or message via Facebook.

I love attending Rebeccas Yoga Classes. I love the fact that she moderates the exercises so you have a choice of how far you go in a particular stretch from minimum to moderate to high. She always encourages you to listen to your body and to only go as far as is comfortable so there is no pressure to keep up. Everyone is so engrossed in what they are doing that I personally don’t be looking at anyone else which I find great. You do feel though that you have been stretched and that you have had a lovely relaxed workout which I love.

You don’t have to sweat and pant to tone your body with yoga. It’s amazing how quickly you adopt to yoga and how flexible you become, no matter what age you are, after only a few weeks. Everyone in Rebeccas classes love her classes and look forward to the relaxation time at the end when you snuggle up in your blanket/wrap etc. Nobody want to leave at this stage as we are all on this lovely relaxed cloud.

A good nights sleep is guaranteed after all of Rebeccas classes. I am a very bad sleeper but this is just the ticket for me and I always sleep so well afterwards. It is very relaxed and friendly especially for all newcomers.

Rebecca Allen Yoga StudioLooking forward to hearing from you,

Rebecca :)
