What we're about

We are a small and intimate yoga studio located in the heart of the city center. Our classes are based on the Vinyasa system of breath centered movement, building strength, improving flexibility, mindfulness, body awareness and stress reduction. Our teachers both draw on their own unique experience of the practice, developing creative sequencing while keeping within elements of the ancient tradition. New to yoga or already have an established practice come join us here . I am putting this on meetup because we are trying to build upon the yoga community in Cork and its always lovely to meet fellow yogis! Check our website for details http://www.corklotusyoga.com

For meetup we will charge a drop in rate of 10euro's per class unless you are a student or unemployed 8euro's per class.

Core strength, Core Stability (Level 2+)

Long'sYard Studio

€10.00

Finding our core and building power from our centre will allow the student to become strong and stable, connecting each student to their own sense of determination, will power and inner strength. This class will look to creating stability in the body by focusing on particular core muscles; from our deep hip flexors to the abdominal family and our spinal supporters. Katie looks at the body and sees how everything is connected and needs to be working with eachother to create neuromuscular balance and stability. When our deep core muscles are toned and firing correctly we can greatly reduced back pain, pelvic instability and weak abdominals. Its a strong and challenging class, not suitable for the complete beginner.

Level 3 (Intermediate to advanced)

Long'sYard Studio

The style of yoga taught originates from the tradition of vinyasa and asthanga yoga (which is a breath centered flow style practice) but is infused with a more modern and evidenced based approach to movement and the body. The class focuses on breathing practices to help regulate the nervous system, mobility for joint health and longevity, strength, and flexibility. We build upon the vinyasa system whilst developing a dynamic and creative flow. The student will learn to explore different transitions and have a little fun in this class whilst progressing in their understanding of movement and there own bodies. Building upon foundational poses and progressing to some more advanced asana. Mindfulness is the main theme and practice that is intertwined throughout. This class is not suitable for the complete beginner, at least one years practice is required.

Yin Yoga and Mindfulness

Long'sYard Studio

Yin and Mindfulness Our Yin and Mindfulness class invites you to slow down and create a space for stillness and silence while nourishing the deeper tissues of your joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia. We achieve this by putting mild stresses on areas in the body with long held postures, which we approach passively, allowing these tissues to become stronger, healthier and thus happier. This class will have you mainly on the floor as most postures are supine and seated and can be held from anything from 2- 5 minutes, giving the body time to relax and open in its own time. It is a wonderful compliment to a more yang (active) practice and a much needed tool for anyone who needs to unwind a tight body or busy mind. Yin also works on the myofascial meridian system its roots lie in Daoist practices which combines ancient traditional acupuncture theory. This can enhance the body’s energetic flow and support emotional equilibrium, promoting a harmonious balance within all elements of the body mind. Starts Thursday the 24th of August 8.00pm – 9.20pm (suitable for all levels including beginners). Please if you cannot make it and you have already RSVP yes can you cancel or text[masked]. Spaces are limited.
