Yoga for calm energy
The Yoga Process provides yoga therapy and yoga classes, in Greystones, Co Wicklow. Both therapy and classes are based on a traditional approach, together with Yoga Nidra meditation which, practised regularly, allows us to cultivate calm energy.
Classes take place both online and in the studio, while individual therapy sessions or yoga tuition are always in person.
The process of moving along towards a state of yoga happens in stages. This is why yoga was traditionally taught to individuals according to their unique set of circumstances. Everyones physical capabilities, energy levels, age, life circumstances and what they would like to achieve from their yoga practice is different. The process begins from where you find yourself. Yoga can also be used therapeutically alongside conventional treatment, whatever your level of health, to help you manage a broad range of chronic and challenging health conditions, at any level. Yoga as therapy is a gradual process. Some of the many conditions which can be assisted by yoga therapy are chronic back pain, cardiovascular problems, respiratory difficulties like asthma, anxiety, insomnia, burnout, chronic fatigue and mild to moderate depression.
Tuesday 10am and 11.30
Saturday 10am and 11.30
The Yoga Process classes are suitable for everyone, at any level of experience. They are taught according to the tradition of TKV Desikachar and his father Krishnamacharya this approach is holistic and is informed by the Yoga Sutras. Care is taken to preserve the spirit of these teachings, where the breath is of particular importance and development of the class series is often a gradual process.
The focus for the Summer classes will look at postures , breath work and meditation to ease muscle tension, cool the body and mind, ideally bringing you closer to a state of yoga.
There are four more classes on Thursdays from now until Thursday 19th October.
iRest yoga nidra is a simple, profound, evidence-based ancient yoga practice. Often, when we feel stressed we can be encouraged to let go, but of what? The pancha Maya model helps us to become aware of the many dimensions of our being, the body, breath, feelings and emotions, cognitions, and feelings of joy, so we can become more familiar with them and experience the realisation of the essence of self which is the ground of being from which these dimensions occur.
I offer regular, one-day or half-day retreats.A combination of gentle breath-centric asana and iRest yoga nidra aims to leave you refreshed and restored in body and mind.
No matter how well we look after ourselves in terms of diet, exercise, sleep, and other lifestyle factors, tension can and often does still build up in the body, mind and breath. These knots of tension can be eased by a combination of gentle restorative yoga and iRest yoga nidra integrated meditation. Yoga is often a gradual process, both a path and a destination. Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat and a warm blanket or duvet.
The next half day retreat will be on Saturday October 14th.
The theme will be “Practicing yoga philosophy”.

Ann-Marie has completed over seven years of yoga training, two with Yoga Therapy Ireland and five in the tradition of TKV Desikachar. My training in this approach was with Hanne Gillespie in Dublin, and with Ranju Roy and Dave Charlton, authors of ‘Embodying the Yoga Sutras’, in the UK and Dublin.
These seven years culminated in certification from the Yoga Alliance, the Association of Yoga Studies, the British Wheel of Yoga, Sadhana Mala and finally, the British Council for Yoga Therapy.
