Yoga Mythology Workshop with Jack Harrison & Special Guests
The Love song of Aengus Og
The Story of Aengus Og
Aengus Og, the Irish god of Music, Love and Poetry, was celebrated in WB Yeat’s poem, The song of Wandering Aengus. Join us for Heritage Week as this workshop is inspired by the journey of Aengus from his birth at Newgrange-son of the goddess of the Boyne river-to the magical woods of the West of Ireland. With yoga poses mixed with breathwork, music and stories from our Ancient Heritage this promises to be a beautiful workshop.
Jack Harrison is a teacher, singer and folklorist who has been practicing yoga for over 30 years. He is a highly experienced yoga teacher and blends yoga, music and mythology in his workshops.
Price €40 for yoga workshop including kirtan; €10 for Kirtan only
