Gemma-Rose first discovered yoga while living in New York City. The first style she practiced was ‘Bikram Yoga’ which she dedicated herself to for many months. As her passion for yoga grew, so too did her desire to experience a broader range of styles. She eventually found vinyasa yoga in Dublin which immediately resonated with her on a deep level, especially during self practice.
Having experienced the incredible benefits of yoga and the life changing impact it had on her life, she became deeply motivated to become a yoga teacher so she could pass on these good feelings to those around her through this ancient tradition. She decided to take some time away from her career as a designer and flew to Rishikesh, India where she completed her first formal yoga training. She received 200hrs YTT in Hatha Vinyasa and Ashtanga Vinyasa in 2016.
Gemma-Rose continues to develop her knowledge of yoga, both as a practitioner and as a teacher. Her attitude towards yoga is always the same - “My intention is to help people feel good about themselves.”
Gemma Rose instructs the following:
Hot Yoga 2
Our hot classes go up 34 degrees, enough to experience all the benefits of a hot yoga class without being overly intense. Within this class the postures are linked in a seamless manner, creating a natural flow of movement linked with breath. Flow will provide cardiovascular benefits, as well as muscle-strengthening and stamina-building. Each class will offer different content that challenges you mentally and physically.
A introductory class teaching foundation and basic poses. Open to new students and accessible for those who've never done yoga before. Join others at the intro level and build confidence to move into other Yoga 1 classes. All welcome!
Level 2 classes are designed to take you deeper into your practice by introducing asanas which will challenge you equally on strength & flexibility, so you can discover true harmony in body & mind.
Each class combines a dynamic asana practice with meditation, hands-on alignment, basic yoga philosophy, deep relaxation…and some good sounds!
As we suggest more challenging variations as your practice develops, this is a great place for you to laugh, play and grow in your own time.
Not suitable for beginners.
Warm Yoga 1
Though still a heated class, we drop the temperature to 28 degrees in this class to allow for beginners or those new to Hot Yoga to become accustomed to the heat. This is a good choice for beginners or if you like a slower class. Yoga 1 is a slower-paced flow class geared towards those new to yoga or preferring a slightly gentler class. Time is spent breaking down sun salutations and other poses fundamental to a Yoga practice. Props and modifications offered for proper alignment and ease in the postures. The teacher will guide you through a unique combination of standing and floor postures that will challenge balance, strength and flexibility.
