Gentle Yoga


This class is taught by:

John McGuire

 
John's yoga journey commenced in 1999 when he was on the brink of having to have major back surgery as a result of disc, trapped nerve problems caused by a bad fall while playing squash. The chances of a successful outcome were not good and, as a last resort, the Sports Injury Consultant recommended a three month programme of intensive traction which luckily reduced the pressure on the nerves very considerably …. and to an extent with which he could live. The Consultant recommended that he practice Pilates intensively to strengthen his abdominal muscles so as to provide a corset of protection for my lower back and spine.
 
He attended Pilates classes at the Westwood Gym in Leopardstown and they worked wonders in terms of me building up a strong core. At around that time, the Gym started to offer yoga classes which he attended out of curiosity and began to practice with his very first yoga teacher, the wonderful Yvonne Treacy. For a time, he continued with the Pilates but then migrated totally to yoga. While working in Smithfield, he started to attend yoga classes in the Elbow Room where he came in contact with a number of inspirational teachers such as Dave Curtis, Anthony Kearney and Tanya Fitzpatrick.
 
In 2009, John changed his work place to South Dublin and joined Yoga Dublin in Ranelagh where Dave Curtis and Anthony Kearney were also teaching. In 2013, he decided to participate in a three-year Teacher Training Programme under the guidance of Dave Curtis and was delighted to become a certified teacher in 2016.
 
During his two decade yoga journey, John has practiced Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and more recently, Shadow Yoga. He is delighted to be still practicing week in week out with Yvonne, Dave and Anto.
 
Gentle Yoga is a unique sequence of movements and postures which has been developed as a means of introducing the practice of yoga to beginners of all ages and of all levels of fitness. It is particularly suitable to those seeking to improve their flexibility, health and general well-being.
