Wexford Yoga Centre Open Day Not To Be Missed

Sadhana Open Day Only Natural
Sadhana Yoga Centre in the Faythe in Wexford town is in the process of reinventing itself largely following events in the life of its founder Linda O’Grady. I had a chat with Linda to find out just what had brought her to this, what her background and modus operandi as a yoga teacher is and just what plans she has for Sadhana.
Linda has been working in the bodywork area for the last twenty years and what struck me was how rightly proud she is of her illustrious yoga lineage. She teaches Vinyasa Krama Yoga and was taught by Srivatsa Ramasami. Srivatsa Ramaswari in turn received the teachings from Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (November 18, 1888 – February 28, 1989), an Indian yoga teacher, ayurvedic healer and scholar. Often referred to as “the father of modern yoga,”  Krishnamacharya is widely regarded as one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century. If close to source is good then Linda has it!

Therapist of the Month – Anne Marie Ferris

Reducing Stress and building Self Esteem

therapist Anne Marie Ferris

Following on from last month’s topic of ‘Stress’ we thought it would be good to introduce you all to therapist Anne Marie Ferris as teaching her clients to remove stress from their lives is central to how Anne Marie works. Anne Marie’s background for the last thirty years and an area in which she still works for part of her time is education. This fundamentally informs Anne Marie’s practice and she often works with parents and children in areas such as stress reduction and self esteem.

NLP

A visit to Anne Marie can involve any or all of the therapies at her disposal. These include Neurolinguistic Programming which seeks to deal with how our belief systems and emotions can be serious barriers to happiness. It teaches that our fears and limiting beliefs can disrupt our whole quality of life, confusing us with conflicting thoughts, eroding our self confidence and making us question and doubt ourselves and our abilities. Just imagine how life could be if that weren’t the case. NLP seeks to help you see and understand how you can change the responses and behaviours that don’t work for you to the ones that allow you to live your life to the full.

Also used is Thought Field Therapy, also known as ‘Tapping’. This is a simple, read more →
