Harness that Spring energy with a series of yoga classes

image

Feeling that first touch of warmth in the air, seeing the fresh greenness of new leaves, the characteristic yellow of daffodils and dandelions, spotting the very first swallows to arrive after winter — glorious Spring has arrived at last!

So why not energise yourself, harness that Spring energy with a fitting yoga practice? Whether you prefer a morning or evening yoga class, you can benefit even more from the flow of energy around you by taking up a practice which will both energise and calm, and which will bring the immediate benefit of a more even mood as well as promoting effects which will last long after your course is over.

My new series of classes begin on Wednesday 30 April. The morning classes run for four weeks this term, with evening classes running for six weeks.

Chair yoga at Greystones’ Shoreline Centre from 19 September

I am very pleased to be able to offer a series of six chair yoga classes at the Shoreline Community Centre in Greystones, starting on Thursday 19 September at 11.00am.

These classes will be as gentle as my regular viniyoga classes, but are most suitable for those with mobility difficulties or who have found regular yoga classes too challenging. 

People who will benefit include seniors, those with back or leg problems, even wheelchair users.

Chair yoga takes a holistic approach, whereby the joints in the body are taken through their range of movements through simple seated yoga postures in a chair. In addition to the posture work, the class also includes a short, centering breath-work and relaxation.

My chair yoga class aims to give those with lesser mobility an experience of classical yoga. Starting from a place of respect for each student’s limitations, each class will take the student through a range of poses while respecting the need for comfort in each. Week by week, participants will gradually gain greater confidence in their body and breath.

Regular class resumes on 18 Sept

My regular series of classes will resume on Wednesday 18 September at 7.30pm in St Patrick’s Recreation Centre in Greystones.

A warm welcome back to all my regular and faithful students — and an equally warm welcome to those who would like to join in practising this gentle but invigorating form of classical Indian yoga.

These classes are suitable for all. They involve a gentle, slow approach with a great deal of emphasis on the breath in poses, and are not at all ‘sporty’. However, regular practice will not alone calm the mind and spirit, but will strengthen the body and improve performance of both joints and musculature.

The series extends over six weeks and the cost is still just €75 for the course.

I am offering a short course of three classes in June, to help prepare for the inevitable stress of the holiday time.
Three classes in themselves will start to bring calm and balance to your busy life, and each student will receive guidance for a short and simple home practice to see them through the busy summer months.

The end of my website — at least, on Posterous

My former website was powered by Posterous, a marvellous web platform that allows, or allowed, anyone to create a site to which they can upload any form of media, including documents, photos, galleries of photos, video, audio, and PDFs, and have them all available to see or hear inline. 

Or they could.

Posterous is closing down. Tonight, at midnight.

The business was bought by Twitter over a year ago. Insiders say twitter bought Posterous for its intellectual property and capital and for its highly skilled workforce, and had no intention of contiunuing the service itself.

True, it seems.

And a pity. No other web platform offered such flexibility and such range. Such convenience. Yes, you can upload a PDF file to other platforms, but you can’t read it inline in a Scribd window. You have to download it to your computer first. It’s not really part of your site, as it was on a Posterous site.

But my site isn’t going away.

I have migrated it here to Tumblr, where at least my entries will display in full, including images. 

The address for the moment will be yogagreystones.tumblr.com
