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 16 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. These sessions allowed 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. 

These meditation sessions ran in 2018 and are not running currently.

Getting time to explore our 2km limit with calm seas and blue skies. Brent Geese still hanging on to their winter grounds, Whimbrels coming through in small flocks and after some time, 2 Bottlenose dolphins came on the scene. ⁣
My camera is not good enough to capture these beautiful creatures but the @shannon_dolphin_project has some great stories. ⁣
This strange time has had some positives for us. We've slowed down and that's been nice. Take care and #staysafe ⁣

'Gallarus' style bender sauna being dismantled by Lughadh. First edition built Santosa Yoga camp 2011, second edition around 2013?
Many bodies sweated in this space, many laughs were had, beautiful songs sang, many shrieks during cold water showers. many star-gazing evenings.
We have time now for some projects. Watch this space.
Hope to see some of you this summer. Hope you are all keeping safe 🌿🐞🦋🐛🐝

The sun shone, we danced and walked together, we traced the winding Labyrinth path, young and old and celebrated this ancient festival walking in the footsteps of our ancestors. 🌿
Our ancestors came together and prayed for a good harvest so they would have enough food to keep them going for the winter months. In this global food market, we are not as vulnerable as our ancestors were, yet this globalisation has made us vulnerable in many other ways. 🌿
Climate change creates food insecurity in many parts of the world. Tonight, we asked for protection for the earth. There is no Planet B 🌿🦋🌍
