The word ‘Prana’ in yoga, means life-force, or vitality. In other words our energy. There are thousands of energy channels that flow through us.

This workshop will concentrate on opening the three main ones, which are called Ida Nadi, Pingala Nadi and Sushumna. We will begin with a breathing exercise called Nadi Shodhana which will prepare us for our physical practice. This opens with a slow, rhythmic, flowing, vinyasa which will incorporate methodical movements designed to bring a mindful consciousness to your physical body.

About the author: Bev Porrino

Bev Porrino

My early career involved strutting the halls of numerous institutes, initially as a nurse then in Social work and while I have no plans to step back into those arenas I am grateful that I experienced the world through a wider lens because of them. In 1999 I moved to Amsterdam where I designed and delivered in-house education for a chain of gyms. I wrote a couple of books, numerous articles for Men’s Health and other magazines. I learned the craft of script writing and eventually went on to open Amstel Yoga Lounge, a boutique-style studio specialising in yoga and food workshops. In 2012 I relocated to Dublin and found The elbowroom. They let me make soup and gave me some classes and a place to hang out. I'm a teacher of yoga and pilates. I’m a writer and a Be Activated - Neuromuscular practitioner and I am smitten with the gritty city of Dublin and it’s eloquent and friendly inhabitants.

The elbowroom has an extensive range of classes for all ages and abilities. We offer such an eclectic mix to enable you to find something that will suit you. If you need any advice, please contact our class advisor who can point you in the right direction.
