Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga refers to a set of physical exercises known as postures or asanas. This is the Yoga that most of us are most familiar with in the western world. The Yoga poses are designed to unblock energy channels in the body and let energy flow freely. Hatha Yoga is a powerful tool for physical and mental transformation. It is different from other forms of exercise because the movements in the body are connected to the breath, and this in turn helps to quieten the fluctuations of the mind. It then becomes like a moving meditation.

There are many different styles of Hatha Yoga. I describe my style as slow flow yoga. We ‘flow’ slowly and mindfully through a sequence of postures that varies from class to class depending on the class level and theme. My classes have a big emphasis on the breath, moving mindfully and alignment. Each class includes breathing techniques and/or deep relaxation to finish (Shavasana).My beginners class is slower paced and not as challenging as my slow flow class. Both classes are on Monday evenings. 

I also offer longer workshops where I break down the poses a bit more, learning which poses offer most benefits to different parts of the body, delving more deeply into meditation and deep relaxation and learning more about pranayama practices (breath control), all of which are a vital components of any advanced yoga practise. Keep an eye out of social media and in the booking section for details of upcoming workshops.

I am a fully trained and certified 200hr teacher since 2007 with https://www.yogaireland.com and I am currently undergoing further studies to become a senior 500 hr certified teacher with the internationally acclaimed school of yoga https://www.90monkeys.com. Some modules I have completed with 90 Monkeys so far are ‘The Art of Teaching Alignment and Flow’ ‘The Sustainable Yoga Teacher’ and ‘Hands on Assists’.

I am also trained to teach Pregnancy and Mum and Baby Yoga, Fertility Yoga & Childrens Yoga.
