About this event

Give yourself (or a friend) the gift of the present moment!

2 sessions - follow ‘live’ and/or via the recording.

Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30th December 2021

10.30am - 12.00noon [Ireland]

In January Sails we will learn and practice gentle breathing and movement exercises of Kum Nye (a Tibetan yoga), followed by the stillness of meditation, to refresh our body and calm our mind - perfect preparation for the New Year!

January Sails is;

  1. Two ninety-minute 'live' sessions 10.30am 12noon [Ireland]
  2. Links to recordings for re-view/late-viewing
  3. Practice guidance/advice for between sessions
  4. Advice/support with 'how to continue' into 2022

Set Up Kum Nye is a slow and meditative form of yoga, it is good to wear clothing that allows free movement, minimal jewellery etc. Barefoot is good but warm socks are cosy. Yoga mats are not necessary, but a comfortable, firm chair, without arms is. We sit forward on the chair a little and it’s good if your feet reach the ground - if the chair is too high put cushions or blankets under your feet.Only sit on the floor/on a cushion if that is comfortable and easy for you. If you are new to meditation you may find the following video On Posture [17minutes] helpful. It describes the options for seating, the main points of the posture and some other tips.

Ideally you will follow the sessions from a quiet space with a good internet connection - and make sure you can see your screen!

Booking through Eventbrite Eventbrite will send you a booking confirmation and a link to join the sessions - they also send a reminder email the evening before, including the link preventing any last minute panic!

Connecting using Zoom The live sessions are streamed using Zoom. By now many of us are familiar with Zoom but if it is your first time you will need to download the Zoom meeting app (it only takes a few minutes but do it days in advance again so there’s no stress). You do not have to have or create a Zoom account to join this streaming. I look forward to seeing you on-line!

energise the body + calm the mind + attune with the world - Kum Nye consists of simple breathing & movement exercises – suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels – that calm the mind and relieve tension in the body. For newer people Kum Nye a gateway to meditation - you can do it! - for others a path to deepen their practice.
