Saturday 17th June, marks the beginning of our Summer Wellness Series in Clondalkin, where, each weekend throughout the summer, we will welcome a variety of different exercise and wellness experts to the beautiful gardens of our Clondalkin café, for a range of free classes that include yoga, mindfulness, pilates, essential oils, and more!
To get us in the mood, we caught up with some of the teachers who will be leading classes, to ask them about their top wellness tips for the summer. Find out what they had to say, below, and be sure to follow our Summer Wellness Series Facebook page for further information on classes. We hope to see you soon!
“I love to have my breakfast in the garden during the warmer months. It is such a lovely way to start the day. If possible get some ‘me time’ in the morning, before the demands of the day begin. Breathe, do some yoga, even if its only 5-10 minutes. Start your day off slowly and give yourself the best chance to have a great day!”Liz Costigan, @positive.fitness.project
“Mindfulness is about awareness of what’s going on in the present moment. Take 3 or 4 breaths and tune in to what you notice, right here, right now. You notice what you notice; it’s not right, it’s not wrong, it just is.”Adam Dunlop, @dunlop.adam
“Seasonal allergies are not fun to deal with. Thankfully, there are some natural things you can do that may help to relieve seasonal allergies, including using essential oils. This ‘Allergy Busting Blend’ is an effective and uplifting diffuser blend to have on hand for seasonal allergies: 3 drops of Lavender essential oil, 3 drops of Lemon essential oil, 3 drops of Peppermint essential oil. Fill your diffusers with water and add the oils. You can also make a handy roller bottle blend to use on the go.”Siobhan O'Keeffe, @theessentialyogi
“Strict technique and form when exercising is all well and good, and something to strive towards, if that’s what you want. However, the most important thing is just to get out there, move your body, and do what feels good!”Peter McCallum, @resiliencestudios
