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.

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.

Our new website is now live. We've tried to keep the same simplicity and natural feel of the old site. There were lots of pages that were probably never explored but we've tried to structure it a bit better now. Retreats are bookable now under the events. We're still tweaking it but what do you think so far?

This time 2 years ago I recorded a meditation for the 'Breathe' cd with #lukabloom. Luka recorded a beautiful piece, called #mindyourownmind It was a surreal experience and one I cherish. It came about through workshops I ran that year, called Mind your Mind which focused on establishing a steady regular meditation practice. .

On a stormy day in February on a day where we've been gutted when our local green @roisingarvey came sooo close to being our voice for West Clare... but where 12 other greens have a place around the table to lead the way in tackling our #climate and #biodiversity #crisis..... it's not a bad day after all @misserikadoyle Here is a glimpse of a lazy, sunny Purecamping day... just hanging out 💚💚💚🐞🐝🐬

Escape from the busyness... with some 'slow' Yoga... restorative... deep tension releasing poses ... the mind follows.... tensions released... and clarity replaces the 'fog'. We will warm up with slow salutations and drop down onto thick soft Yoga mats, into classical restorative Yoga poses. We will practice each pose keeping in mind the Koshas, the layers of our beings.... the physical aspect, pranic or energy aspect, lower mind, higher mind and bliss body..... #yoga #classes #meditation #loveloophead @westofclare @thewildatlanticway @loopheadtourism #clare #ireland ...

Summer moved into Autumn without many of us noticing here, except that it's a little quieter. The sea is at its warmest and richest in nutrients, perfect for sea dips and seaweed baths. Children are settled back into school, the summer madness over and now it's time to look after yourself. The Loop Head Wellness weekend is a perfect combination of events to reduce stress, to restore energy and to give you an overall feeling of wellbeing. There are still places available. You can book directly here: https://purecamping.ie/event/loop-head-autumn-wellness-weekend/ #wellness #yoga #meditation

☀️🌚 Equinox approaching on 20 March 2020, 03:49 GMT.
🌿There are two equinoxes every year, in March and September, when the Sun shines directly on the equator, and the length of night and day are nearly equal.
🌿We reflect on balance at this special time, particular relevant now, where everything might feel completely out of control, where our usual safe boundaries seem uncertain and our usual rituals disturbed.
🌿Take the time to find your breath, to watch it and let an easy rhythm develop. Use this time to connect with each other and the natural world around us.

Timeline PhotosSwamiji emailed an important reminder as we are nearly at the end of February: "Waking up, first thing in the morning, resist the temptation to look at the news or your emails. At this time, the mind is often empty and pristine. It is receptive to insight and meditation. Spend this time tuning into the peace and joy of your inner Being"

Modern life can be frantic so it's important to take a break from information overload when we can. Everyday modern day technology such as smart phones can connect us constantly to stimulus leaving us no space for self-reflection. It's important for us to disconnect throughout the day and connect with ourselves.
