Two peas in a pod, Aisling Ryan and Casey King, worked together to create a warm, bright and nurturing yoga studio in the heart of Kilcoole. They opened Yoga Nests’ doors in March 2018. Though their national roots and yoga roots differ, Aisling and Casey, share the belief in the healing properties of yoga, not just as a means of personal development, but that the birth and growth of a yoga community has the potential to create positive social change and awaken human consciousness. Their mission is to bring the best of human spirit into Kilcoole and throughout Co. Wicklow.
Prenatal Yoga is highly recommended by doctors, midwives and mothers. It is known to have excellent health benefits during pregnancy, helping expectant mothers to build strength, stamina and confidence. Yoga helps us find inner calm and balance, and reduces stress. You will also learn breathing exercises, positions and affirmations that help you to prepare for labour.
Aoife provides a safe and nurturing environment, gently guiding you through Yogic breathing techniques and physical exercises specifically adapted for pregnancy, ending all classes with restorative relaxations that enhance your bond with your baby and deeply relax the body and mind - essential during these special months.
These welcoming classes are also a space to meet other mothers in your area.
“I can’t recommend prenatal yoga with Aoife highly enough. Each class has a great balance of relaxation, breathing techniques while still staying active in your pregnancy. It was great preparation for labour...”
Suitable for All Levels
Aoife has been running popular Chakra Yoga classes for the past five years and is now offering a series of workshops that will help deepen your awareness of the elements and themes associated with each chakra . You will practice breathing techniques, yoga postures, mantra and meditations that connect you to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual qualities of the chakra.
The next in our Chakra Workshop Series is coming up next month. We’ll be exploring Manipura - our third chakra.
Located in the solar plexus, this chakra is connected to our strength, confidence, personality, ego and mind, or the manomaya kosha. The element is fire - and we’ll be building heat and willpower with breath work, core work, twists and balances, focusing our mind with meditation and mantra, before deeply connecting to our sense of self and letting go of self doubt with a deeply relaxing Yoga Nidra practice to finish.
Suitable for every body - Aoife will always provide options that will help the pose suit your body on the day.
