Yoga and Meditation at Purecamping
Why practice Yoga?
A yoga practice is usually made up of breathing practices, Asanas (physical yoga postures) and a meditation or a relaxation at the end. Your own practice could be ten minutes or a couple of hours. It really depends on what you need at any given time.
Yoga Asanas are mindful movements that stretch and strengthen the body. They work at many levels, at a physical level, on the musculo-skeletal, cardiovascular and circulatory, digestive, endocrine or hormonal system and the nervous system. Asanas also stimulate energy in the body, increasing the flow of energy and allowing it to flow more freely.
Combined with a Pranayama or Breathing practice the effect is intensified. A simple breathing practice like the Complete Breath can transform ones state of mind instantly!
Over time, you can go deeper into your yoga practice with meditation and Yoga Philosophy.
Ultimately, a regular yoga practice can help you to be the best that you can be …… Now is the time 🙂

Supported Meditation to ‘Mind Your Mind’
I have over 15 years of teaching experience after undertaking training in Galway with Satyananda Yoga teachers, Shraddha Murti and Chetan Murti in 2002.
Many of the practices, such as the practice of Yoga Nidra were derived from Tantric practices. Meditations such as Antar Mouna (Inner Silence), Chitakash Dharana (Meditation on the mind space) and Ajapa Japa were all derived from the Tantras. I usually teach the practices of Meditation on the Breath and Kaya Sthairim (Body Stillness) first, before moving on to the other meditation practices.
This ‘Mind Your Mind’ series of meditation sessions came about after a number of students mentioned that they would love to do a meditation class separately to the Yoga class. It allows students to focus on the more subtle practices of Pranayama and Meditation with ongoing support in the form of recordings, notes and personal journaling and follow up classes.
Exact dates of these sessions are on the Events page.
