Yoga is a philosophy which, through physical and mental exercise, helps to bring a person to a state of awareness and tranquility.
It helps to calm the mind, alleviate the effects of stress and it gets you in touch with your body.
About this class:
This class is for people who have some experience of yoga but perhaps have not taken a class for a some time.
We like to call it our “improvers” class. You will learn to add strength to your yoga by holding postures for longer and connecting with the breath.
The benefits of regular practice are many – yoga stretches help to:
- Build muscle strength and tone
- Improve posture and flexibility
- Improve breathing
- Improve the functioning of all body systems

Jakki tarted yoga back in the early eighties. From the first night she went to class she was hooked! She felt she had found something in the practice and philosophy of Yoga that she could truly relate to, and she looked forward to her once a week yoga “fix”.
Over the next 20 years she has attended Yoga classes with various teachers both here in Ireland and in England. All of these teachers have been enlightening, encouraging and supportive – and all very different.
In 2000 Jakki began attending classes in Leixlip and was introduced to Yoga Therapy Ireland. She was so inspired by their teaching methods and their whole approach to yoga that she decided to train with them to become a Yoga teacher. Jakki now works for YTI training new yoga teachers.
Since successfully completing her two year training
course Jakki teaches Yoga at many different yoga venues throughout Co.
Jakki brings her love of yoga philosophy and meditation to her class to inspire and encourage others to grow and develop.
Jakki teaches Yoga for general fitness, Therapeutic Yoga and Meditation classes in OBUS Wellness Centre.
She is also one of the yoga therapists offering Yoga Therapy as a one-on-one therapy.
