Coronavirus Update

In response to the Coronavirus situation I am now teaching a number of live virtual yoga classes via an app called Zoom.
As most of you may know, my regular yoga classes in Avena are on pause for the time being. However, during this time of great uncertainty and social distancing, there is an even stronger need for social connection. Many of you have expressed an interest in continuing with your yoga and meditation practice at home, so I am in the process of adapting my yoga class format to bring a live virtual version of your weekly yoga classes straight to you, via your laptop or smartphone.
I will be using Eventbrite to take online bookings and Zoom to broadcast the classes.
I appreciate the challenges people are currently facing, so if you are lacking the funds to attend classes, or in need of a concession, please get in touch.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have supported me and my family by attending my classes over the years. I look forward to the day when we can be in the studio together again.

Classes

Hatha Yoga

This class is a little stronger or more challenging than the hatha fundamentals class. It caters for people who have some yoga experience and are looking for a deeper connection. The emphasis is on creating a sense of steadiness and ease by listening to your body, whether its moving from one yoga pose to another, holding a yoga pose or practising breathing techniques. As in all the other classes, I encourage people to only do what feels right for them

Gentle Yoga

The gentle yoga classes are suitable for all levels and abilities, including first timers and beginners. The emphasis of this class is body maintenance, mobility, self-care and relaxation.

Meditation

From time to time, I schedule meditation classes to give us an opportunity to become grounded, set an intention, connect inwards and take some time to just BE.  The class is suitable for everyone, even if you have never meditated before. Check the events & workshops page for details of the next meditation class.

Very good, prepared, clear instructions, structured but still time for “fun & laughter”. Restorative, find peace, get to know yourself better, self awareness, mindfulness, fun. Go on your own.

Antoinette May Residential Retreat 2016

Absolutely brilliant. the best present I have ever been given or given myself. Really informative and practical ideas. A real life changer as so many processes were involved – thought, written, physical, mental. A truly lovely experience.

E. D. You First Workshop

Intuitive. Relaxing. Brilliant. Had a trapped nerve coming in and at the end of the class it was much improved 🙂

Elaine Hennigan You First Workshop

Loved it, very helpful to me in all aspects of my life. Cannot recommend this course highly enough. I would describe it as a journey of self-awareness to a healthier, happier Me (i.e. Project Me). When I am happier, more focused etc, everything in my life (home, marriage, personal goals, work) fits and functions better and that is down to you Anne-Marie. Well done and thank you for your guidance and direction in a non-judgmental manner. It has been excellent.

Annie O’Loughlin Project Me Course

I’m new to yoga and love Anne-Marie’s class, she’s an excellent teacher, very clear and easy to listen to. I come from a cycling background and need to improve my flexibility which is why I started but find the class great for the mind as well as the body, it’s a great de-stressor and has become an essential time out for me. Highly recommend her 🙂

N. Healion May Residential Retreat 2016

A weeks holiday in a weekend. I felt like as a child on summer holidays in Cork. Liberating without phone, makeup, fashion or distractions. I feel however we landed a really great bunch of cool people which sealed the deal!

Nora May Residential Retreat 2016

Blissful, full of love. Full of the most important things to me – people connection, self care, movement, being minded, great nourishing healthy food, a journey to the soul, a transition from unhappiness to contentment/relaxation/acceptance.
