school description

How Yoga feels like The various asanas are very precise tools. Each yoga posture or asana is a specific shape or template in which the stretching occurs. The idea is to use these tools or shapes to help create more space in your body. Your body is the visible and tangible portion of your energy field, and each pose is like a map into specific area of that field. You create more space by undoing the tight spots, releasing tensions. During practice you are deliberately roving through your body looking for the contracted, sore or painful areas. By using the various poses as maps into yourself, you then gently stretch them, press and squeeze them, breath in to them, relax and release them and thereby ease away the tension and open the contracted area. This is extremely enjoyable once you get a feeling for it. All this poses done slowly, carefully, with sensitivity and feeling enjoying what you are doing. Yoga is a loving gesture toward yourself, and when you are really weed-free, the poses will feel clean, and will be the experience of free-flowing, unobstructed energy. Here are a few things to enhance your learning and practice of Yoga: No experience of flexibility is required to practice Yoga. Yoga is for everyone. Try to arrive 10 minutes before class to sign up, to calm down and prepare mentally and physically for the class. When you enter the studio, please remove your shoes and turn off your cell phones. It is highly recommended to bring your own personal yoga mat for hygienic reasons. But you can get one in the studio or there are mats for sale at the reception. Yoga should not be practised on a full stomach (unless a specific condition prevents this). Remember to drink plenty of water after each class and hydrate yourself throughout a day. Wear comfortable and loose clothing and practice without shoes or socks. If you are pregnant please inform your teacher. If you have serious chronic health problems (illness, injury, or medical condition) please check with your doctor before beginning to practice yoga and notify your instructor before class. Not every pose is appropriate for everyone. While one class a week is better than none at all, yoga is most beneficial when practices regularly. Please refrain from wearing strong perfume Ask questions about anything that is not clear to you. You may ask during class when appropriate or after class. Please make every effort to arrive on time. Late arrivals are disturbing to the teacher and the students. If you arrive a few minutes late, take a breath, and quietly sit at the entrance until eyes are open and movement or talking has begun. At that point, unroll your mat and enter as slowly and quietly as you can. Centring is a very important part of the Yoga practice. It is an inner attunement in preparation for the practice, where you suppose establish and centre attention on the breath and loosen limbs, torso and spine for the varicose poses that follow. If you have to leave before the end of a class, please inform your teacher in advance and try to leave prior to Final Relaxation Savasana to ensure that other students have a fulfilling experience. This is the most important part of the practice to absorb the benefit of your work. As you integrate all the energy (Prana) which was created in the other poses in all parts of your body restoring you. Let go of the competitive mind-set. Yoga is non-competitive. It is not just a work out, it is not just techniques for relaxation, and it is not just cross-training. It is a spiritual practice that makes the body stronger, more flexible, and generally much healthier. The purpose is to calm the mind, open the heart, and stimulate our spiritual evolution. Be kind and loving to yourself by accepting where you are. It is okay to come out of a pose before the teacher says to. Yoga is not “gutting it out” or “no pain no gain”. To the contrary, the body will respond beautifully when you show it kindness, acceptance, and love. Rest sometimes. Do what you can. With what you have, with where you are. Students take responsibility for their own practice. Classes finish with the gesture and saying Namaste. This means: I honour the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honour the place in you in which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, we are one. ~Namaste~ sthirasukhamaásanam The posture of the body during the practice of contemplation and at other times, as also the posture of mind (or attitude to life) should be firm and present. (The yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Sutra II.46)

Yoga

Asanas have powerful therapeutic values. They improve circulation and glandular functions. They retard ageing, increase your sensitivity, they enhance your look, your posture, your skin and muscle tone. They increase the strength, stamina, and flexibility you need for other activities. It is relaxing. It is energizing, healing. It is exhilarating. Yoga practice will make you happy.

The difference between an asana and a simple stretch exercise is that we focus our mind awareness completely in the body, so we can move as one and we can listen what the body tells us. We are not doing work on the body, we become the body. Asana practice is a reunion between the usually separated body and mind.

sa tu dIraghakaalanairantaryasatkaaraasevito dRuDhabhUmiH
It is only when the correct practice is followed for a long time, without interruption and with a quality of positive attitude and eagerness, that it can succeed. (The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Sutra I.14) translated by Desikachar

  • I am a certified and registered Yoga Teacher RYT200, with Yoga Alliance. I completed my 200h training with The Yoga Room, Dublin. I was encouraged and inspired by my dedicated and amazing teachers Tony Purcell, Ciara Cronin, and Michael Ryan. In sequencing the classes I take my inspiration from the Iyengar, Vinyasa and Anusara yoga styles. I emphasise alignment and mindfulness, but also joyful creativity within the yoga practice.
