Picnic Basket Giveaway

Thats for having a read – stay tuned for more excellent prizes over the next few months.

AND a hearty congrats to Joe O’Leary who won our fab giveaway this month! We look forward to seeing you at the studio Joe!!



Hi there! There is nothing like getting back on the blogging bandwagon like offering a giveaway to lure you all back to the blog! We know .. it’s been ages since we posted an update, but as you know, summer in Galway can be just crazy!


First, there was that ah-mazing Yoga training Sara did in Thailand, followed by a crazy fun-filled few weeks of the Galway International Arts Fest, followed by Race week (when we all took a nice break thank you very much!) followed by a few weeks of everyone else taking a nice break … and yes, it did feel good to relax.

Are we all well and rested? Are we all delighted that the kids are back to school now?  That’s why we decided to do a little giveaway this week because we are delighted that routine and regular schedules have returned to our lives! Sara found the perfect treat for one lucky winner – so please do what you can to win this great prize!

Last weekend there was so much of a hullabaloo made over the Electric Picnic and you know what, it is just not everyone’s cup of tea. We have kind of moved on from sleeping on the ground in a tent. That being said, we still very much understand the need to bring a little more sunshine into our lives, especially living on the west coast! Scheduling a little time, or throwing caution to the wind and being spontaneous is possible if you want to get out and enjoy the last few sighs of summer with the gorgeous giveaway we have for you today. Picnics are not just for the crazy youngsters who muck about in their wellies down in Portlaoise!

Galway Pilates

Aerial Anna has taken a few weeks off to return home to Poland for a little family time and to facilitate a Yoga workshop – while she is away we have introduced the lovely Kasia (pronounced Kash-ah) to the fold.

Kasia, also a Polish native, has been living and working in Galway for nine years and we are so lucky to have found her via Aerial Anna. With a certification in both Yoga and Pilates, she has certainly shaken things up and we hope you are enjoying the fun and energy  she is bringing into the studio.

With the first week of September behind us, Karina is now entering into the last few weeks of her time with us here at Mindful Movements. She plans to spend the month of October traveling all around Europe before returning to us in Galway in November for a farewell shindig (waaaaaah). We, of course, will miss her greatly, as I am sure you will too, but feel certain this is not the last we will be seeing of her in Galway!

Right – don’t forget to comment in the box below to get your name in the hat to win the great giveaway we have on offer this week. We will pick a winner next week so best of luck to you all!

See you at the studio!
