10 Reasons We Love Palo Santo

Posted by | Dublin, Healthy, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Pranayama, Rachelle Hicks, Restorative, Students, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub | No Comments

A few students have asked recently about one of the amazing scents that some of our teachers use. Although there are a number of different things teachers can to bring to class, Palo Santo is a favourite these days. Palo Santo is a piece of wood from a wild tree that grows in Central and South America. A small piece of the Palo Santo wood is burned to let off a medicinal smoke. Its naturally sweet smoke is light, compared…

Home Practice Tip: A Pose A Day

Posted by | Asana, Dublin, Healthy, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Rachelle Hicks, Students, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub | No Comments

I remember when I was a beginner at practicing yoga. It was about 10 years ago. I had been to a few classes over the course of a year and it was by no means consistent. I was interested in continuing, but there was something about it that felt daunting. How was I ever going to remember all those poses? How could I get to a point where I could count my breaths on my own? And what’s with all those…

Cultivate Love In 4 Sentences

Posted by | Dublin, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Rachelle Hicks, Students, Teachers, Yoga, YogaHub | No Comments

There’s a great story I always come back to about a doctor in Hawaii who ended up “cleaning” a criminal psych ward just with the power of his thoughts. Dr. Hew Len was hired to work at a ward for the criminally insane nearly 30 years ago at the Hawaii State Hospital. This particular ward had a high turnover rate of staff and many who endured their time at the ward rolled their eyes as they saw the calm and…

When The Ego Does Yoga

Posted by | Asana, Dublin, Healthy, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Rachelle Hicks, Students, Teachers, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub | No Comments

It’s happened to all of us at some point or another. You’ve done 6 downward dogs in half an hour. Your body is saying,”No,” but your mind is looking around the room, making sure not to fall behind. Everyone in class is going into a 7th downward dog. You know that your shoulders have had enough. You know that you’ll be carrying a backpack for about 20 minutes on the way home. But you feel like you need to get…

What Is A “Flow” Yoga Class?

Posted by | Asana, Dublin, Ireland, Mindfulness, Rachelle Hicks, Students, Teachers, Yoga, YogaHub | No Comments

You’ve seen classes advertised as Vinyasa, Iyengar, Yin, Kundalini, Astanga, and many more that are labelled according to a lineage or specific style. Any of these mentioned can be classified with very specific rules, sequences or concepts that define them as that particular style of yoga. But what is Flow Yoga  and why is each Flow Yoga class so different? Yoga Flow can generally be defined as a yoga class that incorporates energetic movement through a series of asanas (yoga postures), by which the student…

Back To The Basics: Yoga Styles

Posted by | Asana, Dublin, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness, Rachelle Hicks, Students, Teachers, Yoga, YogaHub | One Comment

“Which style of yoga do you do?” It’s one of the most common questions asked when someone says they practice or teach yoga. Unless you’re dedicated to a specific lineage or style, chances are your practice fluctuates as much as our Irish weather. To break it down, we can say that mostly all movement and asana-based practices fall under the umbrella of “hatha”. Other practices, like kundalini, fall a bit outside of this umbrella because of the predominant focus on…

How To Talk To Your Yoga Teacher

Posted by | Asana, Dublin, Ireland, Mindfulness, Rachelle Hicks, Students, Teachers, Yoga, YogaHub | No Comments

A few years ago, I went to one of my first yoga classes in Dublin. I walked into the studio, out of breath from trying to find the location, and found myself in an oasis of calm and smokey Nag Champa. I was happy to have stepped into this magical space, but I didn’t quite feel like I fit in. I wasn’t as calm as I felt I should be and I was wearing plaid pyjama pants. I shyly borrowed…
