      Lisa Joyce

      Yoga Teacher

      Lisa has been practising Iyengar Yoga since 2007. Her first teacher was Grace Maher in Carlow, it was also Grace that encouraged her to go forward for Teacher Training for which Lisa is very grateful. Lisa completed the 2 year Teacher Training programme at Iyoga with Eileen Cameron and Margaret Cashman.  Lisa’s interest in yoga has developed from initially using weekly classes to relax the body and mind to developing a daily practice to stay happy and healthy. For her Iyengar yoga is such an inspiration because it is open to everyone. Time is taken to align the body into the correct position to gain the most from the pose, working with the individual’s ability.

      Lisa attends regular yoga classes and Iyengar yoga workshops with visiting teachers to deepen and develop her personal practice further.

      Lisa is also a qualified Homeopath from the Irish School of Homeopathy. She has a passion for a holistic approach to physical and mental health.

      Matthew Green

      Yoga Teacher

      Originally from Australia, Matthew began practicing Yoga in 1999 as a way of improving posture, flexibility and physical health. In 2001, Iyengar Yoga took his interest because of its detailed and precise instruction and how this led to a more focused practice. Holding the poses for longer also allowed time to go deeper into each pose and to develop more body awareness. An increasing interest in the subject of Yoga and a steady personal practice of Iyengar Yoga since moving to Dublin in 2008 led him to undertake Teacher Training in 2012. Matthew completed the 2 year Teacher Training programme conducted by Eileen Cameron and Margaret Cashman at iYoga in 2014. Matthew's interest and experience continues to grow and develop as he attends regular classes in Dublin as well as workshops/retreats with visiting international Senior Iyengar teachers.

      Matthew now holds a junior intermediate level 1 teaching certificate.

  • Mindfulness

    Mindfulness is best understood as the act of paying attention to present moment experience in a particular way, on purpose and without judgements. Mindfulness is really about learning to take care of ourselves while remaining fully involved in what is going on around us. It results in an ability to manage life’s stresses more comfortably and enjoy more fully what life has to offer. While Mindfulness has its roots in Buddhist meditative practices it is now offered in an entirely secular way as developed by medical scientist Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Extensive scientific research continues to confirm the effectiveness that intensive courses in Mindfulness have brought about in dealing with stress and a range of stress related conditions.
