1. Daily sunrise and sunset yoga classes
A yoga retreat provides us with a daily structure of classes. In most cases, teachers will offer two classes per day. We may not usually get the opportunity to practise daily, or if we do we may focus only on postures. A retreat setting enables us to open ourselves […]

Seventeen years ago, I started studying the human energy field, under the tutelage of two amazing teachers – Ann Boyle and the late Phil Maloney at As Solas Healing Centre in Tipperary.

It was a mid-July morning in 2007 and I was late for the first day of 4 Mysore mornings, organised by my friend Paul Whelan, with Guruji’s son, Manju Pattabhi Jois. Paula and I had been to Mysore in 2005 but I had never met Manju before. I hoped there was a way for […]

Ever stop and think to yourself, ‘How did I end up here’? Today, as I listened to reports of the start of the Leaving (State Exam for School Leavers, for any non-Irish reader!), I began to reflect on the circuitous route that had brought me to the path of Yoga. How did I […]

In this See-Saw existence, happiness is fleeting and quickly changes to unhappiness. When we find balance there is ease, there is equanimity, there is a very natural […]

It seems fitting to me that this, my first real blog ever, should appear on Guruji’s Anniversary. All the good things that have unfolded in my life, of which there are many, since I first heard the name, Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, I attribute to him and I offer my sincere thanks to him […]

What is Ashtanga Yoga?

By |July 3rd, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

People often ask ‘What is Ashtanga Yoga?’ They have images in their minds of people doing various yoga postures or sitting in Lotus pose meditating, or lying on the floor relaxing. All of these images are correct, in that they represent some of the many practices of Yoga, yet none conveys the full story. […]
