Sylvia Ferguson (BBS, dip. YTI)

Sylvia’s love of yoga and dedication to her practice, studies and students is apparent in her classes. Her attention to detail in the language she uses and her thoughtful sequencing encourages students to be mindful in body and breath. The goal is to focus attention; the result is a deep sense of lasting calm and a physical practice that is both safe and challenging. Weak spots become stronger; areas of tension and tightness soften. She guides each student to focus their awareness deeply on aspects relevant to them, at that moment, always seeking balanced effort.

She teaches Hatha, Ashtanga, Yoga for Pregnancy, School Students, Kids Yoga, Meditation and private yoga classes. Her classes flow seamlessly influenced by the many teachers and workshops she attends on an on-going basis. All are welcome, young and old, bendy and stiff, lapsed yogis and rusty yogis. On sunny days, if there is any way possible, she will try to find a grassy, tree-sheltered spot to take the class outdoors. Sylvia has been teaching for 10 years, a much loved teacher who tends to attract a devoted following. She has been teaching in RTE for 8 years and in various other centres, studios, schools, homes and fields around Dublin.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient system of Indian philosophy. It incorporates a range of practices from meditation to physical postures and breath control. Yoga combines movement and breath to exercise and purify the body's muscles, nerves and glands and to focus the mind. Almost anyone can practice yoga, regardless of your level of flexibility, strength or balance. Yoga is non-competitive. The ultimate goal of all forms of yoga and meditation is self-realisation, to help you discover your own true nature.


Regular practice of yoga can bring about a profound effect of your physical and mental state. In physical terms you will improve flexibility, strength, stamina, balance and muscle tone. You will develop greater energy levels and increase body awareness. Mentally the benefits come in the form of relief from tension and stress, an increased sense of calm and an improvement in levels of concentration. Yoga has also been shown to help alleviate many common complaints such as insomnia, anxiety, IBS, digestive disorders, PMS, stress, backache and headaches.

What happens in a class?

During a yoga class you will be guided through a series of yoga postures (called Asana). Sylvia will both explain and demonstrate. She may also help you learn a posture by adjusting you. Classes include breathing exercises (called Pranyama). At the end of a class there is a deep relaxation, generally done lying down.

What do I need to wear and bring?
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in freely. You do not need shoes or socks. It is nice to have a jumper/sweatshirt and warm socks to put on for final relaxation as the body cools down. Please bring/borrow a yoga mat if possible; some yoga mats will be available to borrow.

Injuries, mobility problems, high blood pressure and other health problems
Yoga postures can be adapted for most conditions. If you have any injuries or health problems please inform Sylvia before class begins.
