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.

A Message from Aontacht: (Longford Ireland, August 2014)

A Message from Aontacht: (Longford Ireland, August 2014)

Firstly I would just like to send a big thank you to everyone who has made this another special month here at Aontacht.

Our Yoga Flow sessions each Tuesday and Thursday have proved a massive success and seeing the development of the students is a true blessing for me. Even the mid-week placement of the classes has proved popular – energising us throughout the week, and finally relaxing into “Weekend Savasana”. Which leads me to introduce the ultimate savasana of the month, this Saturday from 6.30pm

And now to announce the two lucky winners of our August Offering – Free Yoga for the Month of September.

Congratulations to Geraldine O’Hanlon and Mary Lee. You have both Won a Month of Yoga worth €50! Normally our monthly pass allows you to attend any two of our eight classes each week BUT for the month of September we are offering ALL monthly members UNLIMITED Yoga for only €50!

Open Heart Meditation

Try this simple yet profound meditation next time you’re alone with some time to spare. If the sun is not visible just close your eyes and imagine bathing in its warmth and light. I’d love to hear your experiences too so feel free to share them via email or comment below.

* Sit somewhere comfortable with spine erect.

* Close eyes with hands resting on your lap. Palms facing upwards.

* Bringing your hands to your heart, take a few slow breaths. You may begin to feel a warmth, or energy, growing within.

* Inhale slowly, first into the abdomen, then bring the breath further up into the upper lungs. Bringing the shoulders back, feel the expansion of the chest as you inhale.

* Exhaling slowly, first from the abdomen, then from the upper lungs, Feeling more relaxed and free with every breath.

Open Heart Meditation with Aontacht* Feel the love and light energy emanating from your heart. Becoming too great to contain, its natural course is to overflow and spill out into the universe. At this point you can open your arms with the exhale, and bring your hands back to your heart on the inhale.

* Direct this love and light energy first to family, friends, and then to all sentient beings in the universe.

* Bring consciousness back to your own body and bathe in the light. Allow it to completely engulf your entire being. Soothing and relaxing tiredness, aches, and pains, both physical and emotional.

* Finish with hands on heart and three slow, deep inhales to ground yourself so you can carry on with the rest of your day with a steady mind and fresh perspective.

There is no greater love, light, strength than that which resides within. Discover your true nature today. You are as much a part of the universe as the sun, moon, and stars.

Peace & Blessings
