Soul Sisters event to boost well-being and resilience

Join us for our Soul Sisters event on Saturday 6 March!

We have organised this event as a TREAT for our volunteer Leaders and parents ahead of International Women’s Day (8 March) although anyone and everyone is welcome to join us.

The event will take place live on our YouTube channel from 12-1pm at this link.

Soul Sisters promises to be an hour of physical, mental and emotional nourishment and nurturing with taster sessions of chair yoga (thanks to Lucan IGG Leader and yoga teacher Suzanna Glynn) and tai chi (thanks to IGG’s counsellor Rioghnach Cantwell).*

Our Honorary Ambassador Shirley McCay will demonstrate some stretching exercises so we know how to warm up and cool down safely before and after exercise.

Joanna Fortune, who you may know from Newstalk FM’s Seán Moncrieff Show, will share some practical tips for promoting well-being and boosting resilience. 

We will be joined by several other special guests too! Join us to find out who!

A recording will be available on our YouTube channel following the event.

We had thought of doing some mindful colouring during the event but there won’t be time. However, if you would like to try some mindful colouring, you could download one of the following:
