Two peas in a pod, Aisling Ryan and Casey King, worked together to create a warm, bright and nurturing yoga studio in the heart of Kilcoole. They opened Yoga Nests’ doors in March 2018. Though their national roots and yoga roots differ, Aisling and Casey, share the belief in the healing properties of yoga, not just as a means of personal development, but that the birth and growth of a yoga community has the potential to create positive social change and awaken human consciousness. Their mission is to bring the best of human spirit into Kilcoole and throughout Co. Wicklow.
3.00 - 6.00 PM
Yogis! - Come discover the beautiful heart opening and soul centering experience of a Cacao ceremony with us.
Cacao has been used for 1,000s of years by indigenous communities of Central and South America as a medicine for physical and spiritual healing and is becoming popular in yoga communities worldwide because of its powerful ability to assist us yogis in gently opening up our hearts and awakening us to our true nature. She assists us in letting go of what no longer serves, manifesting intentions and connecting in with ourselves so we can follow our inner wisdom and ignite our creativity. Best of all Cacao opens our hearts to give and receive unencumbered love.
CACAO HEALTH BENEFITS:
Cacao translates to "Food of the Gods"...it's rich in theobromine which helps us with clarity and focus, anandamide, the "Bliss Molecule"; flavonoids (natural antioxidants which protect us from disease); magnesium which assists with energy, healthy sleeping patterns and general well being; and increases the flow of healing oxygen to our organs and tissues.
Mandalei's Cacao comes from the edge of the Sacred Valley of Peru and is 100% organic.
We start with a grounding meditation and Tibetan sound bath after which we'll set intentions and ceremonially drink our Cacao together, journeying into a space where we can meet her and receive her guidance. During your journey Mandalei will assist the group and individual healing through music, shamanic drumming, Reiki and sound bowls.
You will leave feeling nourished, grounded and loved.
THINGS TO NOTE BEFORE CEREMONY:
--Bring your favourite cup and any crystals, talismans, pictures, flowers, etc. you'd like to add to the altar.
--Avoid caffeine, dairy and big meals.
--Avoid alcohol the day before.
--Stop eating at least 2 hours prior to ceremony, if possible.
--If you are taking MAOIs, pregnant or breastfeeding or have a heart condition please let me know in advance so we can adjust your dose of Cacao.

Prenatal Yoga is highly recommended by doctors, midwives and mothers. It is known to have excellent health benefits during pregnancy, helping expectant mothers to build strength, stamina and confidence. Yoga helps us find inner calm and balance, and reduces stress. You will also learn breathing exercises, positions and affirmations that help you to prepare for labour.
Aoife provides a safe and nurturing environment, gently guiding you through Yogic breathing techniques and physical exercises specifically adapted for pregnancy, ending all classes with restorative relaxations that enhance your bond with your baby and deeply relax the body and mind - essential during these special months.
These welcoming classes are also a space to meet other mothers in your area.
“I can’t recommend prenatal yoga with Aoife highly enough. Each class has a great balance of relaxation, breathing techniques while still staying active in your pregnancy. It was great preparation for labour...”
