Yoga and Mindfulness Classes
Greystones Newtownmountkennedy Newcastle
Welcome to Yoga and Mindfulness with Angelika. Whether you are completely new to Yoga / Mindfulness or more experienced, you will find that I offer classes that will suit everyone. Classes are taught in Greystones, Newcastle and Newtownmountkennedy.
All classes are taught with an emphasis on nurturing the health and well-being of every participant and respecting everyone's individual needs, desires and abilities. The invitation for each class is to engage with ourselves in a meaningful compassionate way that can ignite and sustain personal transformation and allow us to live a happy life and reach our potential.
Classes and courses run over 3 series of 12 weeks throughout the year. I also offer a variety of Yoga/Meditation and Mindfulness Workshops as well as Yoga and Walking Holidays in Ireland and abroad. I also specialize in Back Care Yoga and Relaxation Classes and offer One to One Classes for individually tailored needs.
I offer Mindfulness Introductory Courses as well as the MBSR Course to groups, in Schools to Teachers and Staff and other organisations as requested.
Covid - 19 update and going forward with Online Yoga and Mindfulness Classes
I'm offering online live streaming classes for now which will give you the opportunity to practice safely at home but you can still be part of a class which I think is very important and will give you the sense of community.
I will be using Zoom. Which is a streaming platform and free for you to use and sign up to. It is also very reliable (apparently) and easy to use- believe me! Be brave and give it a go. It's a good time to learn new skills.
I set up the Class times as a Meeting in Zoom and you will find the link to each class further down. You click the appropriate link and that brings you to Zoom and the Class by following the steps - its easy.
You can use your Laptop or your Phone. For the Phone you need to download the Zoom App from the Google Play Store or wherever you normally get your Apps from. You may do that a bit before the class starts so that you can familiarize yourself with system and feel more relaxed about it. Don't hesitate to ask for help if you get stuck please.
You can be in the class with your camera on where you will see me and I see you or you can choose just to have the audio for Guidance.
When you join the Class make sure that your laptop or phone is fully charged if possible as it takes a bit battery power as I discovered.

This course can teach you the necessary skills to manage and ultimately reduce "bad" stress in your life. With chronic stress come many other problems like insomnia, anxiety ill health and depression.
Skills learned in this course apply also to all other aspects of life including workplace stress, relationship issues, parenting, caring for others, and general self-care
It has been shown that in 8 weeks through a structured daily practice we can literally change our brain structure and change habits that don't serve us well to habits that do.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is an integral mind/body approach supported by meditation practice for mental and physical health and general well-being. When we bring mindfulness into our work, lives and relationships, we are learning to acknowledge what is going on for us in each moment - noticing the activities of the mind, sensations in the body and emotions and developing the presence and emotional resilience to respond in ways that are non reactive and much more skilful.
Jon Kabat Zinn, the founder of Mindfulness Meditation, defines mindfulness as:
“Paying attention; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.”
