Find Quiet Within The Storm

The Irish Institute of Yoga is located right in the heart of Dublin city. Yoga classes are carried out to the sounds of everyday city life. Three storys above bustling Grafton Street, the vibrations of the world below become a transparent veil where the goal becomes a personal one for every student who practices with us. But one thing that every student must learn is to harness the discipline, focus and detachment to achieve serenity and personal peace as life goes on all around you. When you can do this, you can bring the benefits of Yoga into your life in a real and practical way.

“It’s about adjusting the mindset so that you no longer need to escape from life physically to experience the stress relieving  benefits that yoga can bring. It takes practice but the results are highly valuable especially to those whose lifestyle or career means being constantly exposed to outside stimuli like phones, city noise and life in general” says Frances Flannery who is the founder of Vitality Centre and  The Irish Institute of Yoga and author of “Lets Talk About Happiness”.
