Let’s explore this path together.
“I have just finished seminar 8 (of 10) of the two year Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy training course with Body College Galway. It has been a deeply enriching and lifechanging experience to be part of this course. The professional journey of gaining a qualification aside, it has been so emboldening for me to have a framework of deepening into my own embodiment and then to have a practice and modality that can then benefit others, a touch therapy that is both gentle and dynamic. The course content is really impressive in its scope – with the cornerstones of A&P, the roots of craniosacral therapy, the biodynamic approach and a really forward looking and inclusive trauma informed lens. I feel the practice and the teaching is very alive & relatable and it respects the evolving nature of human experience and bodywork practices and discoveries.
The best part of the Body College Galway course is the community of tutors and peers. It has become such source of support, inspiration and learning for me.
I joined the course in Seminar 2 as the dates for seminar 1 didn’t work for me and it has been really doable to catch up on the first seminar. The peer and tutor support has made that possible.
I would say if you’re on the fence and wondering if you should commit to the 10 seminars – Go Do It!!
It will change your life for the better and your body will thank you for it!” Ruth Smith
“Why should you do this course? I am a 50 yr Old woman. I work as a Midwife in the homebirth setting in Dublin. I believed that I was starting on the BCST journey to support my practice and offer my clients some body work to support their journey.
It turns out it’s me who’s on the journey.
Studying BCST with Body College with Ciara, Josef and team has changed how I show up in life and with others. Doing this work has been a deep dive into my own body and story this in turn is showing me how to relate in a beautiful way with others.
Being in tune with my own central nervous system has brought so much clarity and presence to my world. I am a softer, steadier happier person since I began.
I have studied with many institutions and I can say with deep truth that studying with Body College is the most supportive & safest learning environment I have ever known. I am part of a fun, caring and deep learning group.
Studying to be a BioCraniosacral therapist with Body College is one of my better moves in life! Ali
This training not only helped me to change my carrier path from corporate world to therapeutic world but also sparked deep interest in human body, its origin and its function. I look at myself different way completely and the journey never ends David
“I was torn..would i spend my savings on a new bathroom or would i go for what my soul longed for ,for years-body work in BCST
I opted for the latter !Thank goodness
I know have a pretty dingy bathroom but a soul thats alive and an excitment about my future career i never felt before.
Personnaly this course has thought me so much about myself ,stuff i kinda half knew but never understood or could frame. I feel well consistently for long periods in my head heart and body
So if you ask yourself “Should i do this course?”
I would say YES Eleanor
“I did a wisewoman apprenticeship and healing was a big part. We are guided by plants it’s very intuitive. I didn’t feel confident/comfortable to be able to offer that on its own. I tried reiki but didn’t connect enough with it. I was looking to align the plant medicine with another healing practice where both would complement each other.I had thought about doing craniosacral before but the time wasn’t right. I went to the intro evening and after a few minutes I was certain craniosacral was what I was looking for. The last year has been amazing, stimulating and so deep, I would say if you never worked as a therapist it was worth it. The style of teaching and ways you learn about the body are so beautiful and profound they will never leave you. It feels like all my like personal and professional life have come together and I am all the richer for it.” Kate
“It’s like a key that opens the door into a world and provides skills and techniques to travel into more freedom on all levels, physically emotionally, spiritually, and mentally….” Hira
“If you are interested in embarking on an amazing journey within, learn more about our bodies and be able to help others to feel well, then yes you should do this course” Marcus
Say yes to a professional course , layered with wisdom, research and embodied teachings .
Say yes to a course that changes the way you meet yourself and your clients.
Say yes to a new career that you can start the day after you finish your course” Deirdre
Deciding to this course with Bodycollege Galway has led to me showing up more fully in my life, and to having a clearer sense of my worth and place. It has been deeply transformative, a coming home to self. I decided to take the course, having had only one session of Biodynamic Cranio Sacral therapy and knowing very little about it. The guidance provided by the Galway team helped me navigate through the layers and concepts of the practice, in a way that was holistic and embodied. Even now, having qualified, the support offered by Ciara in our monthly zoom meetings is a great help as I navigate the practicalities of setting up a BCST business in a way that feels right to me. Good luck to all who decide to embark on this journey. Fiona
“I had to go deep into my body: fascia, bone, blood and breath to find painful patterns, sometimes ancestral. The holding, the touch of hands and the power of stillness allowed transformation in ways my mind had never been able to find. We are immense as human beings and BCST allows us to meet our many layers in a beautifully safe way. Nothing that happens in my body is without emotional content and BCST allowed me to shift into fully believing this.” Rosemary
My 20 minute morning yoga practice is the best way to start my day. I roll out of bed, sleepily light a candle and start to wake up my body with Ciara's instructions which are so descriptive and easy to follow. She associates the movements with everyday activities like starting the lawnmower or reaching for a sandwich at a picnic. And sometimes the imagery gives me (an others I suspect) a good giggle. Even though I'm practicing alone in my living room, I feel part of a beautiful tribe. Thank you so much Ciara 🙏
Ciara is a wonderful teacher and manages to inject lots of fun into the practice while giving clear and careful instruction. I have recommended this online practice to many friends and colleagues. The monthly subscription using Paypal is amazing value and completely hassle free. Thanks to Ciara I have become a daily yogi....long may she continue these classes.
Yoga with Ciara makes my day. I've been a regular for two years now and the practice has rejuvenated my seventy-something body, as well as lifting my spirits. I also love the Naduir vibe with ducks, geese, dogs, seedlings; life all around.
This yoga with Ciara has been a life saver for me. I look forward to my 20 mins with Ciara each day. I do the yoga in the afternoon. Ciara is such a wonderful teacher. Her voice is fantastic and calming. She makes me think about things. I have recommended Ciara to loads of people. It's an amazing things to have in my life. I feel blessed to know Ciara.
Ciara's calm voice and daily yoga practice is part of my morning (or sometimes evening) grounding, connecting, wellness ritual. Her movements are always intentional, everything she does has purpose. She has strengthened my will to turn up daily, to consistently listen to my body. I can feel I am part of something bigger by being part of her community.
I love starting my day with Ciara's yoga because I settle into myself and get a sense of how I am and how best to look after myself throughout the day ahead. As Ciara says: 'how can I do this in wellness?
Ciara's yoga is a great practice on multiple levels. I haven't missed a day since starting almost two years ago and have recommended it to others who also love it. She's fun, she's serious and she teaches in a way that's great for mind and body.
Ciara teachers yoga for everyone , there's no fancy poses with names you can't say it's all about what's good for you and every move is adaptable to your own body , and ability . And I guarantee you will feel great at the end of her class , it's changed my life and it's how I start my day , just 20mins every morning and my body is stretched and relaxed, I'm set for the day, I love it 🧘♂️🧘♂️ Thank you Ciara for showing me the way ❤️.
I love getting out of bed and rolling out my mat first thing. It's such a great start to the day. I find the 20 minutes every day is much better for my body than an hour once a week. Ciara teaches yoga like no one else. I love that I never know what kind of moves we will be doing every day! I love the laughing and the little stories and the dogs and the geese. Would totally recommend to everyone.
Yoga with Ciara is not just daily yoga, it is a tribe of people, a community, who are drawn and inspired by someone who represents what this world needs more of - reflection, connection, open hearted nature and bravery to follow your true self. Thank you Ciara for being you.
