Summer time at Killarney Yoga House

As you all probably have notice the weather has been a gift last weeks so we have been practicing outdoors!

Sometimes when good weather comes we want to enjoy it as much as possible so we skip our yoga class. Totally understandable! but what happens if you can practice outdoors or in a room were you can enjoy the sun on your face or the views from the sunset. That´s a double bonus!

This is what has been going on at the studio these days. The pictures talk by themselves . Total bliss as a teacher and for the students.

Looking forward to seeing you around the house!

Warmly

What is Yin yoga? When can I try it?

Sweet Surrender into stillness. Experience the magic of Yin Yoga. ✨

Yin Yoga is a style of yoga that requires a deep slowing down and induces states of relaxation and acceptance. We will hold the postures longer and allow our bodies to soften over time. We will dive into states of meditation and receptivity. There is an art to letting go and yin yoga teaches us how to truly surrender to what is in a healthy and healing way. In this workshop you give yourself time for self-reflection and will remember the importance of slowing down and listening closely to your own body and soul.

Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.

After the class chill out and enjoy some detox tea in the Yoga House.

New teacher and type of yoga in the house

We are so happy to have Murkhande Kaur (Áine Brosnan) teaching Kundalini at the Killarney Yoga House. There are not to many teacher specialized in this practice in Ireland and less in Kerry.

But probably you are wondering: What is Kundalini?

Kundalini yoga utilizes a combination of technologies, such as conscious breathing, physical postures, sound vibrations, meditation and mantra. The combined effects are akin to tuning one’s body to a higher frequency, thus creating a heightened state of consciousness and well-being. Also known as the Yoga of awareness, the aim of this ancient practice is to awaken the full potential of human awareness in each individual.

A science of the central nervous system, the mechanisms at work in the various asanas, (postures) of Kundalini yoga, combine sensory stimuli received through all of the sensory doorways. Asanas may be done in isolation, or combined in sets known as kriyas. Typically, one kriya is performed in each Kundalini yoga class, which may require as long as two hours to complete. Each asana is both a physical exercise, and a meditation, and is designed to open the channels and pathways for energy to flow freely. The various combinations of these actions have specific effects on the central nervous system, heart rate, and even blood and lymphatic flow. Some exercises work to stimulate, others to soothe. The specific angles involved in the postures work to redirect blood and energy to various glands and organs, restoring balance to the glandular system, and purifying the blood by flushing or increasing circulation.

Kundalini yoga is an ancient practice that has been preserved and passed down, for the benefit of humanity. As Yogi Bhajan, the man who brought Kundalini yoga to the west, presciently knew, “no one needs it more” than the chronically overworked, hyper-stressed, and still heavily-medicated population of the modern Western world.

And who is Áine?

AINE

Murkhande Kaur (Aine Brosnan), I have been  practising various types of yoga since the 1980’s first attending classes while studying in UCC. I discovered Kundalini yoga 10 years ago and was immediately hooked on the natural fast acting high vibrations that I felt and have had a constant daily practice since. I love this tradition of Yoga as it has a very long and deep lineage and it’s so powerful and direct, providing the tools to heal and develop mentally physically and spiritually. It creates a state of balance and neutrality that can allow us to fulfill those deep human desires of good health, prosperity and love. I did the teacher training in 2009 and have been teaching in West Cork since 2010. I recently moved to Kerry and was delighted to find the Killarney yoga house as a home for my classes. There is a lovely sense of warm welcome and community there even though it has only been open since the autumn 2017.  Really looking forward to spending time in this beautiful space sharing these powerful teachings with those who feel drawn.

You can join her every Tuesday at 6.00pm and 8.00pm but if you are interested first in knowing about this beautiful and ancient practice you can join her in February 4th for a worshop. I’ll be there! It is a great opportunity! Contact me, Gloria 0876897368 / gloriakillarney@gmail.com or Áine 0861751580 to book you place! Looking forward to meet you on the mat!

Yoga Nidra Session

nidra

This is a great explanation from Clare about  what Yoga Nidra is. When I started practicing yoga, it was really difficult for me to meditate… but one day I discovered Yoga Nidra and the feeling was the best ever and the path to meditation a lot easier after it. I will be there enjoying Clare’s kind words and lovely voice. I hope you can join us.

You Don’t Have To Do Yoga or Meditate To Do Yoga Nidra.

In a world where we just don’t give ourselves time to rest or simply be, Yoga Nidra is an act of radical self love, self care.

Also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness, Yoga nidra is an ancient but little-known yogic practice that’s becoming increasingly popular as both a form of meditation and a mind-body therapy. It is intended to induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness.

A Meditative Practice for Deep Relaxation and Healing, has suggested that there’s no separation between our dream state and reality because they inform each other, and yoga nidra is a practice that helps bring you into alignment with your truth.

You will be guided by a deeply calming voice that penetrates into your very soul, instilling a sense of internal peace and leaving you feeling incredibly relaxed, present and rejuvenated.

Researchers are examining the practice’s potential to help soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder; people suffering with addictions, people with depression, cancer, and MS; health care workers; and married couples coping with stress and insomnia.

“It opens a door where we can see ourselves and our lives in the most positive light.”

“The practice forces us to engage the muscle of surrender” ~ Rod Stryker.
