​Join Danielle for her alternate weekly mellow yoga vinyasa flow and yin yoga classes every Tuesday at 6pm and 7.30pm here at Maitri Studio


Weekly alternate mellow yoga vinyasa flow and yin yoga class, suitable for all on Tuesdays 7.30pm.

A balanced practice to keep us on our toes and release tension, physical and mental. As seasons change so should our practice, with the seasons, of course but also with the needs of our bodies. Winding down into the cooler months we balance between creating that extra heat and keeping our joints and energy from getting stuck. We will alternate weeks Starting with flow practice 3rd Sept and Yin practice 10th September and so on.

Vinyasa flow is all about connection. Connecting the poses in a beautiful dance, as the class builds each pose & weaves together. Connecting the breath, the mind and the body. This is dynamic and builds heat in the body.

This mellow class is created to practice cultivating a better sense of well-being through our physical and mental habits. Whether you're a beginner, coming back to practice or looking a gentler flowing practice, come breathe and move together.

Yin yoga A yoga practice based on the ancient Chinese practice of Yin and Yang. Opposites. Balance. Yang practices include our other yoga practices, the gym, running, sports and our day jobs. Yin practice in contrast involves holding floor based yoga poses for an extended time with relaxed muscles and using all manners of bolsters and blocks to help aid our body into each pose. In each pose we may feel a "stress" (like a stretch) and/or compression (bones, muscles and tissues pressing upon one another). In these poses we try to find our comfortable edge, that is, that we can feel the intended "target area" of each pose and we try to find our 7/10 in our individual comfort levels. Ultimately to free up the space/ energy flow in our bodies, physically and mentally.

Yin yoga intro class - 8th Oct - 26th Nov 6-7.15pm

Yin yoga is a physical practice of stillness. We take deeper floor based yoga poses for longer periods of time to physically and mentally work out those stuck places. This practice compliments the faster and effort based practices and exercise.

About Danielle

"My love for yoga was born out of a need for understanding my own mental health, physical health and search for happiness. When I was studying psychology, we had a topic of positive psychology where there was quite a bit on yoga, so I decided to give it a go. I found a beautifully curated dance of postures and breath. I never looked back. Not only has it helped me mentally, it has given me a profoundly better relationship with my body, what I put in my body and my relationships with others.

I personally practice yoga to take me out of daily autopilot, to be present especially in times of darkness & struggle. My practice goes beyond the physical and teaches me not only how to bring more joy into my life but to deal with the shadow side of emotions and stress also.

Our body is the house we live in and the first door to looking within ourselves.

I have studied my own personal practice for five years and completed my 200hr teacher training in Flow Studio Belfast May 2018. Finished my 30hr Yin Yoga Training Jan 2019. 21 hours advanced training with the Celtic school of yoga, "the power of your voice" Sept 2019. Completing an additional 30hrs level 2 yin yoga Nov 2019.

Yoga is creative practice, it should be fun and full of laughter, lovingly coming home to yourself. After all it is a practice."
