Katarzyna has BH degree in Art and Design (Level 8) and over the years she has been teaching art, drawing and painting to various age groups. 

She encourages her students to participate in art projects and she organised art show exhibitions for her youngest and older students.

She believes that creativity has various meanings and ways of being explored, expanded and one of many of them is art. She says: "By awakening your own creativity, you touch your soul. Who are you if you do not touch your soul? Just flesh and bones?". She has amazing teaching skills and even those who have certain doubts about their artistic abilities start to believe in themselves as she awakens them to their own creative potential. 

She is creative graphic designer and artist. She explores various techniques and media from manual to digital. Across years she changed styles by expanding and exploring her view on art and life. Nowadays, she finds herself as artist in the small illustrations and the canvas paintings size around 5"5 x 5"5 ft (160 cm 160 cm). She also uses Adobe and Corel designers programs, for example, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, SketchBook.

She also loves black and white photography ranging from mystical landscapes in the fog to people resting or working in the daily life situations. She also likes to explore arranged photography, which she uses as a base for her ideas for the paintings from impressionism to the surrealistic abstracts.

8week evening course

Start date: Monday 16th April for 8weeks (except bank holiday Mondays) plus full day of Mindfulness practice

Time: 8pm-10pm

Venue: Community Well Studio, Donabate

Being mindful means being fully present in the here and now. It is the practise of slowing down and paying attention - so that we don’t miss the precious moments in our lives and can equally learn to deal more effectively with those times that may be stressful.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight week programme created and pioneered in the USA by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn. Studies have shown that committed participation in an MBSR course can often lead to lasting positive effects on health and well-being. This 8-week course will introduce participants to different forms of mindful practise, including sitting meditation, body awareness and gentle mindful movement. As the emphasis is on bringing mindfulness into everyday life, home practice will be an important part of the course.

Price: €250 includes all course notes and two practice CDs

Concessionary places available for unwaged/low income

Deposit €50 to secure a place

To book or for more information contact Instructor: Mairead O’Keeffe Institute for Mindfulness-Based Approaches

Testimonial from previous course run by Mairead: 

'It was such a gift for me to be able to attend Mairead's course. She is truly an embodiment of mindful presence - great teacher! I got so much out of the course for my work and personal life. I'm very grateful for each and every hour of the practice and for the tools which I'm still using in my daily life. Thank you so much!' Magdalena, Yoga Teacher and Therapist

Wellness Yoga and Mindful Meditation with Katarzyna
May
10
to May 31

Wellness Yoga and Mindful Meditation with Katarzyna

Wellness Yoga and Mindful Meditation

May's Topic: Self-Confidence vs Arrogance

Your mind is asking you for more in life, your heart is asking for more in life. Your Inner Being - You - is asking for more in life. Does it? I hear your answer - YES.

Are you confident to reach the fullness in your life?
I am a true believer that meditation is the key to all situations, to the physical, mental and emotional well-being. The process of slowing down thoughts, observing them, letting go of the resistance, letting go of the control and trusting in your own process of achieving and healing. Recognizing own thoughts is the key to success, fulfillment, health, happiness, and peace.

Wellness Yoga & Mindful Meditation focuses on the work of the body to open, become more flexible, to allow with each breath be in the receptive mode and feel where is a need to move energy to become more of who you already are, not only in the physical aspect but also emotional.

When we recognize thoughts, we can guide them. If we do not know what is going on in our mind and thinking process, the mind is just jumping from the memory to the future, from obstacle to the problem-solving. When we become in charge of our own thoughts we can receive real answers and let them flow through you.

Path of less resistance is ease, there is no rush on the yoga mat. Let the inner being in you guide you while you practice Asanas and meditate, observing your mind. Let the body take a step to be more flexible, stretch and have a deep rest after.

Yoga is all about releasing the resistance through the breath while doing exercise with the body. That’s the true core of each asana. The Asana of Mind is also about that. You are beautiful, wonderful person. That's the core of meditation - to be the extension of beautiful Life, which we all create together.

Dates in May for Thursdays:
10th of May
17th of May
31st of May

3 weeks €40 Course Drop in €15

Booking Via community well website or at the yoga class.

Moving towards Freedom - Yoga Course for Beginners

to May 29

Moving towards Freedom - Yoga Course for Beginners

4week Yoga Course starting on Tuesday the 15th of May

Time: 7pm

What does freedom mean to you? 

What is freedom on the physical level? Most of us would probably define it as the freedom to move, move with the feeling of ease, lightness, without pain or tension, feeling free in your own body.

How to liberate ourselves from mental imprisonment? Through the practice of training your mind to recognise and let go of the things that block you, limit you, keep you down and inhibit you from expressing freely your true self.  

During four weekly sessions we will be reflecting on the above questions and focusing on creating a sense of freedom within our bodies, minds and hearts. We will practice yoga poses with awareness, listening to our bodies to find the way towards moving with greater ease, grace and freedom. Once our body opens, awakens and releases tension through the movement, we will proceed to the practice of meditation, learning how to create and cultivate sense of freedom on the level of the mind and heart.

Please note that this course is suitable for beginners.

Cost of the course: 40eur

Baby Massage Course

Baby Massage Course

Touch is one of the most significant and nurturing early experiences your baby will have. Research has shown that these early experiences can affect many aspects of our lives. Nurturing touch has long-term benefits and can impact how we think, feel, and relate to others, and most importantly, how we value and care for ourselves. Infant massage greatly enhances the early bonding relationship between parents and caregivers and their babies. By using gentle, tactile stimulation along with loving verbal communication, a wonderful bonding experience is shared. Strokes can be either stimulating or relaxing, depending on your baby’s needs and developmental level. Infant Massage benefits your baby in the following specific ways:

*Relief for Colic & Wind
*Balances Emotions
*Aid Sleep Patterns
*Soothes Baby
*Builds Immunity

Pilates for Pregnancy is run by a Chartered Physiotherapist and is a wonderful opportunity to meet other mothers-to-be in a relaxing environment. There will be a small number in each class so everyone will benefit from individual attention.

I enjoyed your classes and the Active Birth workshop so much and they helped me to stay active, fit, healthy and in good shape and I really felt I could cope with anything in pregnancy and labour! So that turned out to be really useful on the day cos I was able to trust my body to do the right thing and bring Cormac safely into the world.

Thank u so much for everything xxx Niamh’

I and my husband (...) attended Fit Mums Active Birth Workshop we loved it! It was so enjoyable and informative, so much better than the hospital workshop we attended which we found very technical.

Hatha Yoga with Cora in September - Moving into Autumn

to Sep 25

Hatha Yoga with Cora in September - Moving into Autumn

Happy September to you all. As the season begins to change, I hope you’re feeling well and managing to find time to focus internally, to slow down, and breathe into changes that may be happening all around… as it always seems to do at this time of the year.

This month, as the darker evenings draw in, we’ll be giving some deeper focus to twists, breath, and backbends – really focusing on lungs, and the digestive system, which can help support and calm the mind when change is taking place. We’ve touched on Camel pose in the past so this month, using our blocks, we’ll take this a little deeper, and also combine with supported Bridge, and an introduction to Cobra.

This Class and Class on Wednesday at 6.45pm is open to all levels and abilities.

Cost is €12 drop-in, alternatively, if purchasing a package of 4+classes, the price reduces to €10 per class. Packages can also be used for both Monday or Wednesday sessions, however, in order to secure a place in either class, pre-booking by text (087 8049818) is required from September onwards.
 
PS: Over the past few weeks the classes have been getting busier after the summer holidays and we reached maximum capacity on Wednesday evening last. From a comfort point of view in relation to space, and for the use of props (blocks, belts, bolsters), I would really appreciate it if you could drop me a text or email if you’re planning to attend class that day. This helps to avoid disappointment as I would hate if anyone made the effort to come along but there just wasn’t enough room to accommodate. Thanks so much for your help with this!
 
FYI, if you know anyone who is interested in the class, but may not have joined us yet, please let them know how to contact me and I’ll be sure to share this information with them too.
 
All my best,
Córa

Active Vinyasa Yoga with Introduction to Lucid Dreams Meditation

Active Vinyasa Yoga with Introduction to Lucid Dreams Meditation

Active Vinyasa Yoga Flow with Katarzyna - 5 week Course with Introduction to Lucid Dreams Meditation

Are you aware that we spend one third of our lives sleeping? 

During the sleep we can not only restore and relax fully but we can influence the course of our dreams, overcoming our fears, weaknesses and limitations if we prepare for it properly.

The moment before going to sleep is very important but unfortunately nowadays we don't put too much attention to preparation for sleep. We fall asleep with laptops, mobiles and TV screens in front of our eyes and because of that we don't really rest our minds and bodies during the night, awakening only to feel more physically tired and mentally overloaded.

Katarzyna will help you to prepare your body for the night rest through active vinyasa yoga class and she will guide you through science of lucid dreaming to help you with falling asleep, dreaming and awakening with awareness.

Full five week course: 60eur
Drop-in: 12eur

Finding Your Centre - Yoga & Mandala Drawing Workshop
Jul
18
7:00 PM19:00

Finding Your Centre - Yoga & Mandala Drawing Workshop

This 2hour workshop focuses on finding our centre of balance both on the physical level and in our lives. 

First part of workshop covers physical practice and working with different energy centres in our body (chakras) on the physical level. After we explore their meaning and importance we move to the second part which is dedicated to creative work of designing your own mandala. 

What is a mandala?

A mandala is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form. In fact, "mandala" is a Sanskrit word that means "circle". Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms.

Mandalas can contain both geometric and organic forms. They can also contain recognizable images that carry meaning for the person who is creating it.

In essence, mandalas represent the connection between our inner worlds and outer reality. Designing your own mandalas can be both inspirational and therapeutic.

Cost of the workshop is 20eur and includes all art tools, refreshments and vegan treats:)

Womens Full Moon Yoga & Chanting Workshop
Mar
12
2:00 PM14:00

Womens Full Moon Yoga & Chanting Workshop

The moon or Yin aspect of our being is all about allowing, harnessing and invoking the feminine aspect of our divine nature. The moon by it's very nature simply reflects the light of the sun (our masculine or yang aspect), yet it illuminates the sky at full moon when it comes into it's wholeness.

The moon has a huge effect on our tides and this is also reflected in our bodies (even if you are not aware of it). As women our bodies move in a natural cycle of the moon- our 28 day cycle, and as we gather together to celebrate this full moon workshop, we tap into the collective support of sisterhood, knowing that together we are stronger.

The full moon is a time for coming into our wholeness and cleansing that which no longer supports us, to enable us to move forward in life we must first be prepared to shed or release to make space for the new.

Within this special womens workshop we will explore Dru yogic sequences to open our hearts whilst drawing in the cleansing energy of the full moon. As we allow this heart energy to expand we will express it through the use of our voice as we chant to remove obstacles, and rise into our wholeness.

Bhakti yoga or chanting is all about expressing the heart energy through the use of sacred mantras or sounds- sounding pretty when you sing is NOT the aim, as this practice sings through you.

Places will be limited and MUST be booked in advance through https://www.innercalmyoga.ie/workshops/ or by contacting Laura on 085 8225450

Baby Massage Course

Touch is one of the most significant and nurturing early experiences your baby will have. Research has shown that these early experiences can affect many aspects of our lives. Nurturing touch has long-term benefits and can impact how we think, feel, and relate to others, and most importantly, how we value and care for ourselves. Infant massage greatly enhances the early bonding relationship between parents and caregivers and their babies. By using gentle, tactile stimulation along with loving verbal communication, a wonderful bonding experience is shared. Strokes can be either stimulating or relaxing, depending on your baby’s needs and developmental level. Infant Massage benefits your baby in the following specific ways:

*Relief for Colic & Wind
*Balances Emotions
*Aid Sleep Patterns
*Soothes Baby
*Builds Immunity
*Helps Gain Weight
*Aids The Bonding Process
*Assists recovery from Post-Natal Depression

Overcoming Fear - Yoga Workshop: Inversions for Beginners
Feb
25
1:00 PM13:00

Overcoming Fear - Yoga Workshop: Inversions for Beginners

Inverted postures and arm balances are possibly the most beneficial yet intimidating of the asanas. In this workshop, we will break down inverted postures and arm balances, teaching how to practice safely and confidently through the use of preparatory poses, props, modifications and proper alignment. Using these techniques to bring lightness, strength, balance and openness, we will learn to connect with our center, find balance and overcome fear. Yoga teacher Krishnamacharya said, "It's not that the person needs to accommodate themselves to yoga, but rather the yoga practice must be tailored to fit each person." The goal of this session is to find the right inversions and arm balances for each one of us.

Workshop will be broken in 3 parts - short theory, physical practice and meditative relaxation

Cost: 15eur (if you have purchased class pass you can use it against the workshop fee)
