Iyengar Yoga, named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body through the development of asanas. Through the practice of a system of asanas, it aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well-being. This discipline is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well-being.

I like to link my yoga teaching to everyday life: to the cycles of our lives and of nature, so we become more in tune with ourselves and the world around us. I generally take a theme for the term, and develop it as the weeks go by, so there is a sense of continuity and growth through the term. I also draw on words and ideas from yoga teachings to enrich our felt experience in the practice.

Gently, steadily explore and develop your body’s strength, your flexibility and sense of balance.

Become breath aware.

Explore the body – breath connection.

Learn to relax and let go.

Begin from where you are now.

All my life I enjoyed teaching, so it is not surprising that I wanted to share my discovery of yoga’s power to relax and revitalise.

I trained as a Hatha yoga teacher with the Irish Yoga Association. Their training is over a 4 year period to ensure a properly assimilated experience of yoga’s essential elements.

This class has been developed based on my research on low back pain, and hence is suitable for most people with injuries such as herniated / bulged discs as well as those seeking relaxation and stress relief.

In this Gentle Yoga class we move slowly – taking extra care of the low back, shoulders and neck. We mindfully explore movements that nourish us and release tension. While we use gentle strengthening movements to support a healthy spine, the main focus lies on relaxation. Recent research has shown that stress can lead to pain-causing inflammation in the connective tissue of the body. Breathing exercises (pranayama) and restorative poses throughout the class will help to calm the nervous system, relieve stress and reduce pain.
