But rather as a system of intelligence”

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!

Ger’s July 18 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

We’re bringing Dale Pinnock to Wexford

Dale Pinnock, UK celebrity chef, author and nutritionist has just updated and republished The Clear Skin Cookbook first brought out in 2012 and, in partnership with Viridian Nutrition, we’re delighted to be hosting Dale for a cookery demo highlighting the do’s and dont’s of his unique 60 day clear skin program on the 20th of August. There’s a bit of time to go yet so watch this space and final details of the event and how you can be there will be in our August newsletter. The program is a nutritional, supplemental and lifestyle guide for anyone suffering from skin issues like acne, eczema and psoriasis. We currently have copies of the book to give away in Only Natural (Ts & Cs apply, purchase necessary) and this month’s recipe is a small taster of how following Dale’s plan certainly needn’t be about self denial! Here’s an excerpt from Dale’s own story on Viridian’s website which explains just why skin problems are an issue so very close to his own heart.

Destress with Yoga!

Linda O'Grady image
Our topic this month is stress – yes something that we all experience in some form or other, some of us on a daily basis whether it’s trying to get everyone out the door and be on time for work or short term stress such as selling a house, losing a job or a relationship breakdown.  We’ve all been there at some point in our lives and it is a natural part of our journey on this earth.  Stress comes in many different forms and so too does coping with it.

It is well known that exercise is good for stress (it releases the feel good endorphins) as well as being in the moment with people being encouraged to practice Mindfulness on a daily basis.  Yoga combines the two so I volunteered to take myself off to a yoga class.

We are fortunate here in Wexford to have numerous, experienced and qualified yoga instructors but recently I have been hearing quite a lot about Linda O’Grady founder of Sadhana Yoga.

Linda is a Yoga and Pilates teacher, Therapist and Wellness Coach, with 18 years’ experience in holistic health (nutrition, herbal medicine, bodywork) and Yoga.  She teaches classical Hatha Yoga using the Vinyasa krama system. read more →
