Mindfulness and Restfulness

Parknasilla Yoga Experience

Orla is an avid lover of the outdoors, and adores anything that involves the sea, adventure and having a good laugh in life along the way. Often, she weaves themes of nature into her offerings and she believes it is vital that we look after our own energy first and foremost before we step out into the world. The way that Orla teaches yoga is informed by many different facets, including Hatha Flow, Yin, Menstrual Cycle Awareness and effective self-care and meditation techniques and anecdotal knowledge gained from practising yoga in Ireland, Australia, Sri Lanka and Costa Rica. With an initial Honours Bachelor of Education in Physical Education and Irish, this brings a fresh scientific and embodied cultural awareness to her yoga teaching, too.

By practising yoga with her, it is her intention that you will develop a deeper understanding of your body, breath and energy levels.

You deserve to take a break and make deep, delicious rest a cornerstone of your lifestyle.
