Yoga & Mindfulness

There is a lovely variety of classes in beautiful venues around East Cork to choose from!

All my classes and courses contain a blend of Yoga styles and approaches.  No two groups are the same and I aim to tailor the blend to suit the specific needs of each group… inviting you out of your comfort zone.. but within your boundaries.

I generally prefer not to grade or rank classes (beginners/advanced etc) and focus on empowering you to listen to your own body and make informed, wise decisions about what you need by giving options to take the practice more deeply or more gently throughout each class.

In fact, listening to your own body is my only rule for attendance to my classes.  Your body will not lie to you.  It’s a bonus if you can also bring an open mind and a sense of fun 😉

In addition to Asana – the physical part of the practice, most of classes usually include some pranayama (yoga breathing), stillness/meditation and relaxation.  Most courses will devote at least one class to Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) depending on the needs and wishes of the group. 

The emphasis in all my classes is mindful, authentic movement and breath.   Being (faith)fully present for ourselves, feeling and accepting our truth.  Using the mat as a mirror to reflect back to us our patterns so that we gain a greater understanding of our bodies, our minds and from this space, of compassionate honesty, empowering choice and liberation to embrace and express our authentic selves on and off the mat.

All classes include stillness (Meditation), relaxation(Savasana) and Yoga breathing (Pranayama).  The physical practice varies depending on the group and the time of day.  All classes are 75 mins.

I am quite spontaneous (!) and vary things from time to time 😉 … but here’s an idea of what to expect from the current class timetable
