Important: Please note that all classes must be prebooked by text. You can still pay at the studio, just text AONTACHT + Your Name + Which class you would like to attend (Day & Time) to 0894946908 Thank you 🙂

The morning sessions (10am, Monday, Friday & Saturday) really are the best way to start your day and the perfect way to wake up and prepare both body and mind for the day ahead.

Fitness Yoga (6.30pm, Monday) is also very popular. Being a workout with the benefits of yoga, working up a sweat while stretching and toning the muscles and at the same time developing the mind and finding peace in the present moment.

If the morning sessions are the best way to start your day, our Friday Evening, Gentle Yoga class (6.30pm, Friday) is the perfect way to end the week. If you want to relax and leave work and life stresses behind you, clearing the mind, refreshing the spirit and strengthening the will, this is the one for you.

Chair Yoga is the newest addition to the week. A half hour mid-day session (1.10pm, Monday, Friday & Saturday) is accessible to everybody looking to bring some mindfulness and relaxation to their day through a series of easy breathing and stretching exercises.

NEW April Schedule OUT NOW!

www.LongfordYoga.com

Almost two months since we opened the doors at Aontacht Yoga Centre in Longford and the response has been inspiring.

In order to continue to provide the best possible service to our public and private clients, and to open the centre up for further activities (meditation, open mic, drumming, laughter yoga etc.) the schedule is undergoing a slight makeover. If you have any questions regarding classes, feel free to text or call 089 494 69 08

The morning sessions (8am and 9.30am, Monday & Friday) really are the best way to start your day and the perfect way to wake up and prepare both body and mind for the day ahead.

Fitness Yoga (6.30pm, Monday) is also very popular. Being a workout with the benefits of yoga, working up a sweat while stretching and toning the muscles and at the same time developing the mind and finding peace in the present moment.

If the morning sessions are the best way to start your day, our Friday Evening, Gentle Yoga class (6.30pm, Friday) is the perfect way to end the week. If you want to relax and leave work and life stress behind you, clearing the mind, refreshing the spirit and strengthening the will, this is the one for you.

For those who can’t make our weekly classes and for those who want additional classes throughout the week, the Saturday morning (9.30am) session remains unchanged 🙂

Chair Yoga is the newest addition to the week. A half hour mid-day session (1.10pm, Monday, Friday & Saturday) is accessible to everybody looking to bring some mindfulness and relaxation to their day through a series of easy breathing and stretching exercises.

Thank you all for your continued support and patronage. Aontacht

Irish TV visit Aontacht Yoga Studio in Longford

So, as you may have heard, Irish TV recently paid a visit to our new yoga studio on the Athlone Road just outside Longford Town. If you didn’t already catch the episode on SKY 191 you can watch it again here. Big love and thanks to everyone who made it to the shoot that day. Namaste

Longford’s First Yoga Studio! +more!

Suaimhneas, Beannachtaí agus Aontacht.

Hello there,

How was January for you? Did you make or break any resolutions yet? Not to worry, help is at hand!

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce Longford’s very first dedicated yoga studio. With a plethora of classes every week, we’re sure there is something to suit everyone.

The official opening will be in March but if you would like to get a taste of what’s on offer, then pop on down to our new studio located at Mastertech Business Park, Athlone Road, Longford.

A new schedule and pricing system have been developed with you in mind. After listening to our clients and after many hours deliberation I am happy to release our new weekly class schedule (below). Drop-in prices remain at €10 but for those who want more we have a special pre-official-opening weekly rate of €25 which will give you unlimited access to any of our studio classes.



Irish TV paid us a visit last week too! You will be able to see the interview in the next couple of weeks on SKY Channel 191. I almost didn’t have time to be nervous what with organising the studio, students and myself. But we got through it and came out the other end smiling 🙂



As a last bit of news, I have been asked to speak at the Maria Edgeworth Literary Festival this May. I am deeply honoured and look forward to being able to read and share my soul with you.


I have to say, the year thus far has been amazing and can only be described with the adage “onwards and upwards!”. If it continues like this, 2015 will truly be a YEAR to remember.

Looking forward to seeing you soon 🙂

Shea

A Message From Aontacht (October 2014)

I took my first yoga class in Longford, January 2012. It was a wonderful experience in part due to a wonderful teacher. A few months later and wanting to enhance and deepen my practice I decided to undergo teacher training with no intention of actually teaching others for a long time. While at the training I jokingly said if I do any teaching work it will be with the elder community as they would be more in tune with my own pace.

After completing my training and returning home thinking that would be it, I was not back two weeks when I received a call asking if I’d like to lead a private group of retirees. Taking the leap I said yes, and, as they say, the rest is history.

Why am I sharing this with you right now? Well, the story has come full circle because the very space where I took my first yoga class has become our new home for Aontacht Yoga and Meditation in Longford.

We are now located in “The Round Tower” beside Tesco shopping centre (image below). Entrance is located beside GameStop. We also have a new schedule for October so make sure to take note of the new times.
