Dive into the ancient yogic practices to uncover your vitality, demonstrate your potential for deep stillness, and discover how expansive and accessible the yogic practices really are.
The yogic tradition is one that extends far beyond teaching asana- it includes chanting mantra and energetic pranayama practices that lead the student into transcendent states of deep meditation. But for many students and teachers these paths remain a mystery.
Over the course of 2 days we will be unlocking and demystifying the practices of mantra, pranayama and meditation, through embodiment practices. Allowing you to understand these tools from experience so you can take them with you and create shifts in your daily life.
Who this is for:
Anyone who is interested in exploring the full practice of yoga
Yoga, meditation teachers, healers and facilitators
We welcome all levels, stages and ages to this practice.
How our days will look:
7:30-9:00am Morning Practice
We wake up together with a yoga class that combines all of the elements that we will learn throughout the day. Experience the Soulful Practice and each technique in a fluid and accessible way.
We will be providing you with a delicious and nourishing breakfast to power you throughout the morning. Held at Salt and Soul.
10-12 Mantra Practice
These sacred sounds have been the primary mode of transmission for the yogic tradition for thousands of years. Our ability to use mantra in a modern context allows us to continue the work of the ancient yogis and connect us to the deepest of levels of our own being
12-12:30 Tea Break
Tea and healthy treats provided at Salt and Soul
The practice and understanding of the breath and pranayama is a topic explored in many texts. This course aims to help you understand pranayama primarily as an energetic practice. An experience that you can feel.
Head out and explore the local cafes with other students or feel free to spend time journalling, taking a walk along the beach and exploring the beauty of Sligo.
Exploring not only profound meditation techniques, but also the energetics and intentions behind our practice.
We will gather together at a local restaurant- this is not included or mandatory but we encourage you all to join, debrief and have some fun together!

About The Light Collective

Their aim is to build a collective of conscious grounded loving vibrant humans to grow and collaborate and share these very special practices with.
‘Sian’s 3 day training ‘Creating a Soulful Practice’ was one of the most whole hearted and inspired trainings that I have taken in my many years of yoga teaching. Sian so eloquently weaves pranayama, mantra and meditation into her classes and gave us the tools to do the same. The training was a beautiful blend of experiencing the benefits of yoga, plenty of opportunity to practice teaching what we had learnt and finding our own authentic voices. I now feel confident and inspired to teach beyond asana. Thank you Sian for so generously sharing your knowledge and passion, you are a true goddess'
'What an incredible three days, I loved all the different modules, learning in depth, the different breathing techniques, mantra, kundalini, pranayama, the morning practise and of course the yoga nidra. Even though I’ve been a student of yours for 3 years, I was now able to see how it all comes together....and you facilitate it with such ease. It definitely was a profound week and have bonded with so many beautiful yogis along the way....thank you for always encouraging me and supporting my yogi journey....looks like I’ll be attending part 2 of the soulful practise'
'Sian is not only beautiful on the outside, but also and equally on the inside. What an amazing teacher with no judgment of any kind. No question was too silly or too much! Sian was so inclusive. We came away with a much greater knowledge on how to be good teachers from a place of felt awareness. Thank you Sian. You are such a beautiful free spirit'
