Meditation classes (Limerick) - Stop worrying, start living Talks and guided meditations Wednesdays, Jan 31st to Feb 31st | 18:30 to 20:00 | with Barry Walsh | at Your Yoga Centre, 1st Floor, Hook & Ladder, Corbally Rd, Limerick Discover how training in meditation and mindfulness can help anyone to learn how to stop worrying and start living the life we want. It’s easy to miss out on fully enjoying our life, through worrying about the past or a future that may never happen. We may want to make changes in our life but our anxieties stop us from moving forward. Each week during this series Kadam Adam will introduce us to meditations and practices for daily life that will enable us to change this. Discover how meditation empowers us to access a deeper sense of inner peace, happiness and well-being, feeling genuinely and consistently good on the inside. Connecting to the natural peace and joy within our mind opens us up to recognising and identifying with the potential for happiness, inner strength and other good qualities that exist within each and everyone of us. We will learn how training in meditation and mindfulness can help anyone to strengthen and grow all these inner qualities. We will also learn how to recognise, reduce and confidently let go of the causes of worry and stress within our own mind. We will learn how to view our life with the wisdom that enables us to grow our inner strength, peace of mind and happiness. In this way we will cultivate the freedom of mind to work with life’s challenges in a positive and constructive way, free of worry, no matter what is happening in our life. The classes are suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience of meditation. Each class is self-contained. So, you can just drop in whenever you can, or attend the whole series if you wish. Jan 31st – Change your mind, transform your life Feb 7th – Why we worry and how to let it go Feb 14th – The art of living fearlessly Feb 21st – The freedom and joy of living in the moment Drop-in fee (per class): €10 | free for supporting members Class Card: (4 x classes): €30 – 4 x classes for the price of 3 No need to book, just drop in.

Without doubt if you are serious about your field of sport then you will want to consider ways to enhance your performance and prevent injury. Including Pilates or Yoga to your training schedule will include flexibility, core stabilization, strengthening and balance work. By focusing on these vital elements of your training then Pilates or Yoga can help you recover faster after workouts, opening tight areas and improve your range of motion. In your Pilates or Yoga practice you will also develop mental focus and concentration. All these combined will definitely reflect positively to your Sports performance and recovery after training or game/matches. In many sports repetitive movements usually in one direction and in one plane of motion can stengthen certain muscle groups while ignoring others. Over time, this process causes imbalances in the muscles and joints leading to injuries. For example, tight hamstrings and hip flexors will cause the body to over compensate by loading other joints not intended for bearing extra loads. There are many reasons for injuries but alot of the time injuries are directly linked to lack of flexibility, poor core strength and misalignment. Pilates or Yoga helps alleviate this tightness, builds a stronger centre, and aligns the spine. If you are looking to minimize and/or help prevent injury then consider giving Pilates or Yoga a try.

"If you know what you are doing, you can do what you want" - Moeshe Feldenkrais, The Feldenkrais Method.® 'Awareness Through Movement' a somatic movement practice, is very helpful in becoming more aware of habitual ways of moving that may be contributing to pain and discomfort in your body. Dr.Feldenkrais believed habitual movements predisposed injury and could lead to movement problems, pain, or overall patterns of dysfunction. During the lesson the use of non-habitual ways of moving and directed attention can help to discover and let go of limiting patterns of movement, behaviour, thinking and feeling. In order to learn what you do it is important that your movements are smaller than you are able to do, and slow enough for your nervous system and brain to pay attention, otherwise you will move in your habitual manner. Over time, these smaller slower movements allow us to sense how we might be working harder than we need to in performing an action, leading to patterns of unnecessary muscular tension and pain. Through our own awareness and learnings lies the choice for alternative movements that are easier, more comfortable and maybe even pleasant. Whether you are suffering from Back, neck, sciatic or shoulder pain, recovering from an injury or a stroke or you simply want to improve your range of movement or your comfort in sitting in Mediation or at work, then please come along and try a class Group classes are offered lying on the floor and are suitable for all ages and abilities. Breeda brings this wonderful practice starting with a workshop taster on July 1st 11am-1pm and then starts a group of 4 weeks of classes on Tuesday 4th July 7-8pm.

Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in Western World and America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility. Variations of Hatha Flow with concentration of different areas of fitness are included on our schedule eg Fitness Flow, Fitness & Flexibility, Yoga for Sports and Yoga for Men. Our Beginners Yoga Classes are Hatha unless otherwise stated.
Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement," and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. Expect to move and breathe smoothly from one pose to another. Your class will most likely include Sun Salutations. Vinyasa yoga is almost like a dance with synchronized breath and movements. The style and sequence will vary depending on the teacher.
This dynamic, physically demanding practice synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat designed to purify the body. Ashtanga yoga, with it's many vinyasas, is great for building core strength and toning the body. Prepare to sweat as you briskly move through a set sequences. This form of yoga is intensely physical and athletic. Ashtanga yogis practice a prescribed set of asanas, channel energy through the body using bandhas (locks), and concentrate on singular points using drishti (gaze) in (postures) asanas.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with (postures) asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. For beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes for more advanced practitioners they may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.
An uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices, Kundalini Yoga incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, meaning "truth is my identity." The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.
