Hip openers are so good for you, physically, mentally and energetically. The hips don’t lie! Releasing the tension that we hold in the hips feels good, and as lower back pain can stem from tight hips and buttocks, focusing on hip opening brings a deep softening to key areas of the body where we often hold stress, emotion and feel restricted.

Deep Sleep Yoga is a 5 step programme specially designed for those who have sleep issues, insomnia or disturbed sleep. It is also an incredibly relaxing course, helping sooth frayed nerves and showing you how to tame your anxious, busy mind.
So much more than what ordinary Yoga class can offer, it was created by Deirdre O'Coonoe, Yoga Dip, CST-T, drawing on her 20+ years of working with clients, and teaching them how to turn their "on button" to "off".
  • Restful, soothing and calming yoga
  • Breath-work to help destimulate your amped-up nervous system
  • Yoga therapy balls for pain relief
  • Soft weight yoga-bags - the ultimate tool to slow busy minds
  • Yoga Nidra inducing deep rest

Deirdre's Website: 


What students have said from previous Deep Sleep Workshops:

"That was amazing! I particularly loved the Dynamic Release Meditations and found that so effective. Even though I have practiced Yoga before it is usually impossible for me to switch off my mind but this really helped me. Big thank you!"

"After the death of my husband I was all over the place and even though I was tired, my sleep was very unfulfilling . Finally I have increased my sleep times from just 3 hours to six hours a night. I do these practices now just before bedtime and sleep so much better than I ever thought I would. It's so great not to feel like a zombie throughout the day."

"Deirdre, I would go demented without your Yoga classes. You always bring something new and innovative to your teaching, and you bring so much of yourself to the class. Since doing the Deep Sleep Yoga I have been going to sleep with some of the techniques that you taught us - my husband thinks I'm crazy - but seriously I feel a lot more sane. Great, great class."

Shoulders are one of the most common areas of the body to hold stress. Many of us who sit at desks all day or spend time behind the wheel commuting know that the shoulders can become tense and need attention. Yoga and movements that focus on the shoulders are an amazing way to release this tension, to open the heart and chest, and reset your body to invite relaxation physically, mentally and energetically.
