Here at Ard Nahoo we love all things yoga. Our approach is inclusive, heart centered and lots of fun. We focus on alignment based yoga informed by both a strong anatomical and philosophical understanding of the ancient art of yoga.
The practice of yoga brings together all aspects of our selves (whether we try or not). It is physically challenging and in that challenge the conversation between the brain and body parts is opened, then the mind works hard to keep you present so that you can continue connect inwards. In the whirlwind of all of this activity there is a still point, this is the heart. This is the place inside each of us that never changes, is never absent and is full of light. Yoga brings us closer to that light. You might notice after a yoga class the glow in your eyes, that is your light shining through.
The practice of yoga yields many benefits which may include
- Increased strength and stamina
- Can help correct postural imbalances and discomforts that arise from those imbalances
- Increased flexibility
- Stronger and healthier spine
- Improved breathing patterns
- Reduction of stress
- Calmer outlook
- Improvement in overall health and immunity
- Warning: Yoga may make you happier
Our School provides a safe and comfortable environment in which to unwind, and focus the mind and body. Our classes are suitable for all levels, with each course encouraging development at the student’s own pace and it all takes place in our beautiful studio overlooking the wildlife pond.
We believe our location in the wild Leitrim hills adds a bit of magic to your practice – allowing you the space you need to immerse yourself in the yogi lifestyle.
