I have practiced yoga for many years and have found the perfect teacher to enjoy weekly classes with. Not only does it keep me physically fit but it also teaches you how to shut out noise and today living in a world where everything is happening so fast and on a constant basis, this should be mandatory teaching for everyone!
Right in the heart of Dublin city amid all the hustle and bustle I stumbled across The Living Room which describes itself as a ‘place of silence’. Anyone is welcome to drop in between 9am and 3.30pm daily to reflect, rest, read from their library and take refuge from the city.
In addition classes in lunchtime meditation are run between 1 and 2 each day by different teachers where you can meditate and learn new ways of zoning out. Other classes include Nutrition for the Nervous System which teaches ways of eating to increase energy levels and yoga classes for awakening creativity and talks are run regularly combining meditation and conversation. A full timetable and contact details is available on the blog and a suggested donation of €5 per workshop is asked from those who can afford it.
I think it’s a wonderful idea to have a space in the heart of the city which is an oasis of calm – think we all need it sometimes.
