Oonagh teaches a vinyasa flow class on Wednesday evenings at 7.45pm

In 2007 a good friend of mine encouraged me to try yoga. I thought it was great fun and always left with a glowing sense of peace. For years I dipped in an out of the asana practice without learning about the philosophy or history. But as the saying goes, “When the student is ready the teacher will appear” and appear she did. Through Eleanor Steane’s guidance, I deepened my personal practice and the power of yoga has revealed itself to me in layers ever since.

As a woman who has, since childhood, been challenged with low self esteem, yoga works for me because it encourages me to truly understand what self acceptance, self care and compassion really mean. Yoga has held, challenged and supported me through pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood, injury and life in general.

I completed my initial vinyasa yoga teacher training at Flow Academy Belfast in 2017, I am also a qualified yin yoga teacher, having completed my training with Grace Tempany, Dubyin Yoga, in 2019.

Someone once told me to teach my practice, so in my classes I keep it simple. I encourage you to begin a conversation with your body, each posture is a question and answer session. I hope that if you attend my class you will feel the positive powerful connection between your body, your mind and your breath. With great respect to the origins of yoga I understand this practice as deeply intelligent and not foreign to any of us, consciously moving your body guided by your breath is a personal intimate practice. I also hope that like me you will have fun and leave with that lovely yoga glow!

Yoga Club! We practice together at Maitri every Wednesday evening at 7.45-8.45pm.

NOTE: All being well Oonagh's group / in person classes will restart at Maitri on 26th May 2021.

This is an all levels practice, open to everyone. We focus on bringing space and strength to body and mind.

I am offering students a Vinyasa Flow Yoga class, where we will explore openness and strength in both body and mind. I will encourage students to find a connection between their breath and movements and to listen and learn from their own bodies as I guide them through practice.

Blocks of 6 weeks are £45. With reduced places due to covid precautions there are no drop ins, pre-booked places only.

Classes will be designed with the beginner student in mind, although all levels are welcome to join in. No competitiveness, just good craic.
