Margarida Tree is originally from Canada, and owned and operated her yoga shala for 15 years in Florida before moving to Ireland.
She has been teaching for 28 years with a down to earth approach arising from an appreciation of both the eastern practice and the western lifestyle. Margarida makes the yoga practise accessible to everyone and encourages her students to do a consistent practice in order to improve health on a mental, physical and emotional level.
Margarida’s classes include vinyasa yoga and also restorative yoga. Her vinyasa classes are inspired by Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and she uses a combination of ujjayi breath, the bandhas (energy locks) and Drishti (focussing one’ gaze) to bring the awareness inwards.
Our inner awareness is cultivated in the breath-focused meditation during the morning and evening meditation practice.
The Yoga Nidra is a lovely deep relaxation practice, which cultivates a gentle awareness while in a deeply relaxed state.
Margarida makes her classes suitable for all ages, and all levels of fitness. So rest assured even if you are a complete beginner, you will be fine for these classes.
Demystifying yoga, her classes are based on the 8 limb approach of yoga. She incorporates asana (poses), pranayama (breath) and meditation and chanting, combined with inward awareness.
