    Ashtanga Yoga - 8 weeks - €75 Tuesday 7.30 – 8.45 pm (Lena O Driscoll)

    The Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series is known as 'Yoga Chikitsa' meaning 'Yoga Therapy'. The heart of this ancient practice is an inner journey, one of reflection, spiritual awakening, and ultimately a calm, clear mind. This powerful style of yoga enables students to follow a set sequence of postures each time, gradually progressing through the series. The practice emphasises the synchronizing of breath with movements; energy locks; and integrating meditative techniques. Ashtanga Yoga will help you confront your emoional, physical and mental limitations and inspire real change in your life.

    The benefits of Ashtanga Yoga include: strong and flexible body; clear mind; improved circulation and detoxified system. I aim to pass on the traditional teachings of the practice as best I can so that I can help my students understand the practice and apply it in all areas of life not only on the mat.

    In the end, we are all different but, all looking for the same thing... to be happy and at peace...

    All levels welcome to join my class and experience the Ashtanga journey with me.
