Hatha Yoga

'Ha' means sun and 'Tha' means moon, polar opposites.

Absolute Beginners Hatha Yoga: Gradually introduces the breathing practices and basic yoga postures with an
emphasis on proper alignment to ensure a safe and enjoyable practice going forward.
A series of classes where each week builds off of the previous. 
 
Gentle Yoga:The Gentle Yoga class is suitable for all ages and abilities. The practice cultivates body awareness
to enable the student to safely let go of tension and tightness. During the class you will be guided through a
series of gentle postures (asanas), breath and energy practices (pranayama) and a guided relaxation (Yoga Nidra).
 
Yin/Yang Yoga: For a completely integrated practice, this class combines a strong, heating, ‘Yang’ vinyasa
flow with the quiet, cooling ‘Yin’ aspects of relaxing restorative poses. Yin postures are held longer to cultivate
a meditative mindset and deeper physical opening.
 
Hatha All Levels: Through the holding of poses, proper alignment and mindful actions of the body can be found.
Hatha Yoga brings balance, strength, and a sense of well-being to the practitioner. Open to all.
 
Dynamic/Vinyasa Flow Yoga:  Emphasizes the vinyasa- sequences of poses with the breath. The flow of the
positions builds heat, improves flexibility, strength and postural awareness.  A 'go' attitude.
 
Kundalini Yoga: Kundalini yoga is the name of a style of Hatha Yoga originated by the Sikh Master Yogi Bhajan.
Working on the energy body, its purpose is to awaken the inner power by means of postures, breath control and meditation.
 
Ashtanga Based Yoga: A dynamic energetic class. Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern
world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath (Ujjayi) with a progressive
series of postures (vinyasa) - a process producing internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs.
 
Iyengar Yoga created by B. K. S. Iyengar, this yoga style focuses on the body and how it works. It is noted for
attention to detail, precise alignment of postures, and the use of props.
 
Kids Yoga teaches children breathing techniques, yoga postures and flows, relaxation and visualisation, often through games.
It builds mental, physical and emotional fitness, and lays a foundation for a lifetime of health. It teaches life skills and
offers children a non-competitive anti-dote to their modern day pressures
Suzie has  been teaching yoga to the children at Kilcolgan Educate Together- the kids at the school loved the yoga and
the following comment by Anne Eagleton – principal at the school says it all “ The children loved her ( Suzie) – they looked
forward to her lessons and talked much about it at home.The benefits of yoga lessons were visible across all classes and many
parents commented on the positive effects the lessons were having on the children.”

Suzie is a qualified ‘Yoga- Ed’ teacher.

 

Meditation " Connecting Within"
A Chakra Bowl and Chant meditation, using Tibetan singing bowls and toning techniques to relax the body, releasing toxins
and aligning Body/Mind/spirit.
This meditation helps to relax and to find a base for nurturing and grounding in the fast moving times we are living.
The gentle vibration of the bowls enables the mind to go into stillness, allowing the body to repair, and the toning creates a
beautiful feeling of happiness in the spirit, which allows us to lose everything that we are carrying unduly, and become light beings,
full of joy and harmony.

Pregnancy Yoga
Prenatal yoga is a great way to put time aside for yourself and your baby. Practicing Yoga in pregnancy helps to strengthen and stretch muscles, release tension and maintain good posture. Prenatal yoga also teaches you to relax on command and keep a positive outlook while clearing the mind of the stresses associated with pregnancy and motherhood.
 In our classes we teach yoga exercises that help prepare you for labour, delivery and motherhood. Regular attendance ensures that you will practice these exercises consistently for greater benefits.
 
Experienced yoginis or those new to Yoga are all welcome to these classes.
