Yoga adults classes in Galway & Furbo
Gentle Awareness Yoga
Regular classes draw from a number of practices from mindfulness, pranayama, meditation, hatha, gentle vinyasa, restorative to nidra yoga. The gentleness of the warm ups leading to experiencing asanas through the breath but also the principle of alignments which is supported through the use of “props”, allows for the build up of a strong foundation for safe practice suited to all levels. Once this is integrated by the students, classes are intuitively led, supporting the energetic flow emanating from the group in the awareness of the breath and body. In that way, students experience the many fold journeying through the subtle layers of yoga. (time table & rates)
Total beginners Hatha Yoga
Gentle Hatha yoga allows for the principles of "alignment" to be softly/naturally integrated, providing safe practice, and pranayama (breath work) with meditation, brings us to inner journeying, going deep within, thus making yoga "whole".
Having built a strong yet "soft" foundation through the principles of alignments, pranayama and meditation, further "movement" is explored, combining flow with inner stillness.
