About

Love the Place You're in Yoga, Ashbourne
 
Love the place you're in yoga is based in Ashbourne, County Meath. I serve the areas of Meath, Dublin and Louth. I took my first yoga class in the summer of 2002 in the Burrow school hall Sutton. I don’t think I had ever inhabited my body or felt so relaxed in my life before that class, this is where my journey began.
 
I had been working retail all my working career, in 2005 I opened a successful Furniture, home accessory and gift store. I closed in 2009 due to recession, having just had my first child. I had a second child in 2011 and a third in 2013, by this stage I was edging to get back out into the world, but I knew my path was no longer in retail.
 
The draw of yoga was so strong. I loved the idea of furthering my experience, becoming a yoga teacher and sharing the love. In September of 2013 when my youngest was just 5 months old, I began my journey in teacher training with Yoga Therapy Ireland. Over the next two years Yoga became my life, In 2014 I offered my first class at the Parish hall, Ashbourne. This has been my yoga home since then.

What is hatha Yoga? Yoga is different things to different people. My yoga is Hatha yoga. Hatha Yoga is the yoga of physical postures (asana). The word “hatha” can be translated as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance.

By Moving your body in particular ways (asan), coordinated with breathing, we are provided an opportunity to stretch, unwind and release tension.

By Bringing equal awareness to your body parts and breath. We are taken out of habitual thinking and negative dialogue and more into presence and towards our true self.

The pose is not the goal, becoming flexible is not the goal, standing on your hands is not the goal. The goal of Hatha practices is Serenity, to attain peace by calming your body and mind.

What is Gentle yoga? This is a gentle introduction to yoga, easier, less intense, non-strenuous, minimalistic, quite meditative and restorative. Gentle yoga is suitable for people with movement limitations, or profound stiffness due to the lack of activity, relief from disabilities and chronic conditions e.g., arthritis, back pain and other muscular-skeletal issues, recovery from surgery, illness or injury, for seniors, new practitioners, women who are pregnant and those seeking stress-reduction or weight management.
 
Gentle yoga approach has even been found to be an important compliment in programs to reverse heart disease or provide relief from the challenging conditions of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Gentle yoga classes are appropriate for those who want a softer, nurturing, slow-paced, well-supported, relaxing practice with carefully sequenced movements and well-measured stretches, including range of motion exercises. Postures may be approached in gradual steps with plenty of time to focus on breathing and repetition so that the practice is simple to do. This class is ideal if you have found other yoga classes strenuous.

What is Beginners Yoga? In a beginners class you will learn the basics of a good yoga practice. The basic yoga postures (asana) will be broken down with step by step instruction and with alignment cues. You will learn basic pranayama.(breathing exercises) and how to move with your breath. After a beginners course you will have the tools and the confidence to attend any regular yoga class.

What is Chair Yoga? It is a gentle form of yoga that is done by sitting on a chair or standing on the ground using the chair for support. Chair yoga is a great practice for everyone as it deepens flexibility and strengthens personal body awareness. Frequently the chair yoga student is unable to participate in a traditional yoga class because of ageing or restriction stemming from disease and illness. It works very effectively with students who have joint problems, like Arthritis, students who have muscular problems like Fibromyalgia, bone problems like Osteopenia, Osteoporosis, neuromuscular problems like Parkinson’s and MS. Health issues such as: hypertension (high blood pressure), anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, vertigo (medical), carpal tunnel syndrome.

What is Restorative yoga?  Restorative yoga is deeply relaxing, therapeutic and healing! It is usually performed while lying on the ground. Asan (poses) are static and usually held for 60secs onwards. Restorative yoga helps provide physical and mental balance through the use of props that allow you to hold poses longer, giving you all the benefits of deep passive stretching, which in turn allows the body to completely surrender into relaxation. It will offer disconnect and respite from the turbulence of life and lower your heart rate, blood pressure and soothe the nervous system, mitigating effects of regular fight and flight that can be permanently switched on in modern day life. You will love it as Its kind of like Adult nap time!
