‘As a teacher attending a weekly yoga class with Clodagh I find it helps me relax, unwind and return to class the following day positive and energized. What I find great is I can incorporate some of her breathing and stretching exercises into my daily life both at work and home. I highly recommend yoga with Clodagh. ‘~ Mary, Cork
My yoga classes are structured to give you tools to create a better work/life balance and achieve a greater sense of wellbeing. They are the Satyananda Yoga holistic and systematic style of teaching, to bring your mind, body and emotions back into a more natural balance and help:
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Improve flexibility and muscle tone
- Increase energy
- Help manage a busy mind
- Improve focus and creativity
The tools used to create these benefits are:
Postures are guided in a way to release tension and stiffness in the body and increase flexibility and muscle tone. In addition they very often have a corresponding effect mentally through mind/body connection.
The breath is key to managing stress, and the breathing practices help calm anxieties and increase vitality in the body. A simple breath awareness practice is a perfect way of building awareness and “being present” when the mind is busy/difficult to focus on one thing!
Deep relaxation/Yoga Nidra
This can be translated “as sleep with full awareness”. This guided practice is a deep physical, mental and emotional relaxation, which helps stress and relieves tension. Fifteen minutes of this guided relaxation is the equivalent of 1 hours sleep.
Regular practice of meditation, helps build greater awareness, reduces stress and anxiety and calms a busy mind! The guided meditations include Body Stillness and Inner Silence practices.
