Grace Tempany is an educator, yoga teacher, and wellbeing practitioner based in Dublin. She is passionate about connecting with and empowering her students and clients within the classroom, on the mat, and out in the world.
n 2013 Grace took a break from academia and spent three years travelling, training, and teaching yoga in California, Indonesia, New Zealand, New Caledonia and Australia. Her initial Bikram Yoga training was followed by Yin Yoga and Yin/Yang Yoga Therapy training with Mysan Sidbo, Insight Yoga with Sarah Powers, and a specific Yin Mindfulness module with Josh Summers. To date, Grace has completed close to 1000 hours of training and has taught at over 40 yoga studios across both hemispheres. She considers continual learning one of the cornerstones of her teaching and practice ; one can only hold space as a teacher when in humble acceptance of how little we can truly 'know' for sure.
Grace's yoga teaching stems from a keen awareness of anatomical singularities and meridian theory, coupled with a deep focus on cultivating greater awareness and compassion in her students. Her classes are challenging and transformative - just like the practices themselves - and you will emerge feeling nurtured and inspired.
Grace believes that our ability to connect deeply with ourselves and with others lies at the core of our understanding. She is passionate about finding a place for mindfulness, yoga, and meditation within the mainstream education system.
Grace T instructs the following:
Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
While initially this style of yoga can seem quite passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes!
Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about.

This workshop will explore the core basics of the yin practice - the 'yinsentials'.
Focusing on 'feeling' and 'target areas' first and foremost we will marinate in long holds and work into the the outer hips and legs. Rebounds will be present to allow you to fully explore the energy body in yin yoga, and we will end with a deep indulgent savasana. This workshop is open to everyone: Beginners to yin yoga are most welcome - a long workshop is really an ideal opportunity to launch your yinside journey.
