Our speakers shared many powerful stories and insights. Enjoy some advice from them:
"Yoga is actually a holistic approach to life that brings about unity – mind, body and intellect, that brings about oneness with nature."
Her Excellency Mrs Vijay Thakur Singh, Indian Ambassador to Ireland.
"Mindfulness is for me a state of contentment, it’s how I have peace of mind. It allows you to focus and concentrate on what you want to achieve in all areas and all aspects of your life."
David Forde, Professional Goalkeeper.
"Irish people are beautiful but naturally suspicious. Suspicion is fear based. Until we deal with our fear of each other, we will not know our true potential. We should not be afraid to express ourselves, investigate ourselves and make ourselves count."
Dennis Curran, Motivational Speaker.
"Hold onto your dreams. Follow your intuition. Doubt your doubts not your ideas!"
Liam Griffin, Chair Griffin Hotel Group.
"Life’s all about relationships. Help others and let them help you."
Steve Black, Motivational Speaker.
"Social responsibility is just that. It’s my responsibility and your responsibility to act sustainably and responsibly….to look after the wellbeing of yourself and of others."
Madeleine Quirke, CEO Wexford Chamber.
On coping with the pressures in the business world that are less obvious than those in the sporting world: "Looking after your wellbeing both mental and physical is incredibly important."
Gordon D'Arcy, Investment Manger with Investec.
"Yoga also acts as a powerful medium to explore our inner self and find the true harmony between the mind and the body. In a world full of stresses and conflicts, it helps individuals to find the inner peace. It is hoped that the scheduled events in Wexford will help everyone to get a better understanding of the world of Yoga and realise the holistic wellness and peace offered by it.' in a letter to Calodagh
His Excellency Mr Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India
