Yoga is a way of encouraging the five sheaths to work together optimally, in order to enhance our sense of the self. Hatha yoga uses posture and breathing exercises to accomplish this.
For example, an improved flow of energy to the physical body can lead to improved powers in the intellectual sheath. Postures can help improve flexibility, stamina, strength, and balance. In addition to clearing your mind, they can also help your internal systems to function more optimally, and improve the quality of your breathing.
Aisling Battersby has trained for 15 years in different styles of yoga and combines the different styles with a deep knowledge of anatomy from working as a sports injury therapist, to create a unique class that can suit anyone.
Weekly Yoga Classes
The classes vary from week to week focusing on different parts of the body such as hip opening, lower back releasing, twisting, standing, balancing and inversions.
Anyone can join be it beginners, intermediate or advanced. However it is not a meditative gentle yoga class, but one in which you work deeply in the postures.
Tuesdays from 8.30-9.45pm.
Wednesdays from 9.30-10.30am & from 7.30-8.45pm.

Learn to breath, release tension and understand the processes in the body.
Having trained as a nutritionist, sports therapist and doula (birthing partner) and having given birth at home, I am open to communicating about birth and its effects on the body and how to work with some of the things that come up for women through pregnancy and birth.
