I started going to Pauline's Monday night yoga class six years ago initially to help rehabilitate a knee injury. I regained full range of movement in my knee and six years later I still go to her class every week. And I look forward to it ever week. In all that time Pauline has never given two classes the same. Each class is so well planned and flows perfectly, presenting just the right amount of challenge, while still being enjoyable, feeling like you've really earned your wonderful relaxation phase at the end. My flexibility has increased hugely and my Monday night sleeps after class are the best of the week!
Pauline is one of the best teachers I've come across - not just yoga - but just generally. She knows all her students by name and knows all their niggles, treating each one with care, attention and respect. Her always upbeat, practical and positive approach makes her a pleasure to deal with.
I would not hesitate to recommend Pauline's yoga classes.
I have been practising Yoga for about 10 years now with Pauline at Exhale She is a fantastic instructor and is excellent at clearly describing the small adjustments that need to be made in order to perfect a pose. I have had numerous joint issues/injuries over the years - none Yoga related - and Pauline has always been able to accommodate my needs without compromising on the level of the class. I have successfully practised yoga with Pauline right up to a hip replacement and returned to class within 1 year. My orthopaedic surgeon was surprised by the level of flexibility my hip has returned to! I attribute this to Yoga and to the excellent instruction at Exhale. Pauline has instilled a confidence in me that I know my own limits (and limitations) and can continue to fully participate and enjoy the class to the full. Pauline's classes are sprinkled with a good dose of humour !! I highly recommend Yoga with Pauline.
Christie has the amazing ability to sense what each participant needs, and incorporate that into the program. I feel transformed, and I am so much fitter and more flexible than I was a year ago. Thank you, Christie!”
In order to become fit, toned, dance and leave a class with a smile on your face – you need to attend the Pilates+Ballet class. The combination is a match made in heaven – stretching, toning, strengthening, aerobic and all to music. Sandymount and EXHALE is so lucky to have such an innovative teacher, like Christie, with a background in classical ballet and Pilates and we, her students, are reaping the rewards.”
I have attended Caroline's pilates classes for over 10 years and highly recommend her. At the beginner stage I found her fantastic for ensuring that my posture and technique were correct when learning new exercises - and at the more advanced levels she tailors the classes so that you are guaranteed a core workout! Caroline has a wonderful calm manner and I look forward to her class each week.
I've been attending weekly yoga classes with Pauline in Exhale since July 2006. Pauline is a fantastic teacher, each class is challenging and rewarding. The yoga studio is clean and simple, and the small class numbers ensure individual attention. My class is on Monday evenings - the best possible start to my week!
I have been attending Pauline's class every Monday Evening now for 4 years and it is an essential kickstart to my week. I love this class. I find its the only hour and half that I can really switch off all the chatter and busyness of everyday life. Under Pauline's seamless and intuitive instruction my mind and body become synchronised into one as we work through the exercises. Pauline is a wonderful teacher and knows exactly when and how to challenge us.One leaves the class feeling revived and rejuvenated.
I can't imagine not having Yoga in my weekly schedule.
I have been attending Pauline's yoga class since 2006, travelling from far flung Sutton. Because she is an exceptionally good teacher. Her clear and specific step by step instruction in and out of poses helps me focus with ease, and brings me mental peace. The hour and a half class is rich and deep in breath work, stretching and relaxation. In every way I always feel better in myself afterwards.
I practised Hatha yoga for a few years when living in the UK but when I moved back home to Dublin I struggled to find a similar style of class that wasn't aimed solely at beginners. I forgot about yoga for a while but renewed my search after needing physiotherapy treatment for back and shoulder pain, which was when I came across Exhale. Turns out that a good stretch and some relaxation was all I really needed and after just a few weeks of Pauline's classes I could already feel a difference in my flexibility and stress levels. That was almost 6 years ago and I still go to Pauline's class every Tuesday evening. She really is an excellent teacher; no two classes are ever the same and her clear verbal instructions allow you to focus on getting the postures right instead of constantly having to look up to see what you are meant to be doing. She pushes each one of us to our individual limits but somehow manages to make us smile at the same time, and is always mindful of any injuries or niggles. I would recommend Pauline's yoga classes to anyone at any level.
I have been attending classes at Exhale Yoga studio for 8yrs+, and can see the benefits of a form of exercise which is good for body and mind that I really enjoy and therefore have stuck with. The classes are quite small which allows for individual attention and everyone is of a similar ability. No two classes are ever the same and Pauline tailors the classes so that over time we progress with the postures we can achieve. I really enjoy my yoga at Exhale, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to increase their flexibility or for some 'me' time - or both - It works for me!
