It is in times of change like this that we need our Yoga more than ever to help keep us grounded and balanced. I have therefore created a few options so that you can keep learning and practicing throughout this period of social distancing.
Yoga in the Park: Starting from 8th June 2020 I will be holding open air yoga classes in Glounthaune Park (locally known as 'Craig's Feild', beside the playground). This will of course be weather dependant. Maintaining our social distances of 2 meters will be vital and I will ask for everyone's cooperation in this matter. You will need to bring your own equipment (yoga mat/blanket/towel, yoga strap or equivalent (belt/sock/pair of tights...). Classes are €10 per class per person. Ideally this would be paid for in advance and on-line via this page (see payment link below). Please scroll down to see a proposed schedule of classes. Registering your interest at this stage will help me in the planning. For 'FAMILY TIME' Yoga in the Park, children should be a minimum of 5 years old. Parents are required to stay with the children throughout the class to ensure Social Distance requirements are met AT ALL TIMES. Bring a cuddly toy for children which we may use in the class. Please don't forget to wear sun-screen and bring water.
Live-Streamed Classes On-line: Using the Zoom website/app on your mobile phone, tablet or laptop you can see and hear me in real time and I can see you too. This is a helpful way of sticking to a routine and making sure that you find time to get on your mat at least once-a-week. These are subscription based. €10 per week will give you access to the live classes (2 intermediate & 1 beginner), and the recordings of those classes. See the class schedule below for more details.
Recorded On-line Classes: If you can't make one of the live classes you can still access a recording of the streamed class. Access to these are subscription based. €10 per week will give you access to both beginner and intermediate recordings (and Kids Yoga classes).
Free YouTube Classes: I have shared a limited number of videos to everyone free of charge on my YouTube channel. I realise that many of you (me included) are not able to work at present and that your income may have been affected. So this is my gift to you. I will also continue to up-load free Kids Yoga videos for as long as the schools are closed.
Beginners/Gentle Yoga adult classes: In our fast moving busy lifestyles it is important to be able to step out and take some time for yourself. This class is perfect for anyone coming to yoga for the first time to understand the basics before moving on to a more physically demanding advanced class. Or for people who enjoy an easy going gentle stretch and strengthening class. For example the older age groups, people who may be recovering from an injury, people who like a slow mindful practice.
Intermediate Vinyasa Flow: This form of yoga, moves from pose to pose much more fluidly and rapidly, enhances cardiovascular fitness and builds stamina. Through core stabilisation exercises we bring the body into better alignment allowing us to strengthen without injury, relieving pain. Through increased mindfulness yoga connects us with our bodies and increases our awareness of our physical limitations and weaknesses. This class is suitable for anyone who has already completed a course of beginners yoga and who would like the challenge of a more dynamic practice.
Children’s classes for the 5-10 age group, using a mixture of games, mindfulness, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to build confidence, awareness, strength and flexibility while having lots of FUN.
