I have been learning yoga at Exhale with Pauline for over 10 years. I greatly look forward to the classes and they are part of my routine.
When the current Covid-19 crisis began, Pauline contacted her students, giving them the option of doing classes online via zoom. I was a little apprehensive at first, however Pauline soon allayed any fears.
I have always regarded Pauline as an excellent teacher but she excels in this new environment. The relationship of trust is there, and Pauline is every bit as encouraging as she always has been in the studio. I get so much out of the classes – physically and mentally, and really look forward to the classes. they have been particularly effective during these stressful times, and I have also found the short recordings that Pauline has made to be really useful in helping to fit in a little bit of yoga daily.
I have had the pleasure of attending Pauline’s classes for over 15 years.
Her teaching style is very unique with very detailed and easy to follow instructions.
Her instructions are so precise that everybody in the class can get into the posture correctly.
She has now moved her classes online and because her instructions are so clear it is very easy to follow her class and get into the postures correctly at home.
I can not recommend her classes enough.
I joined Pauline’s online yoga class 6 weeks ago on the recommendation of a friend and I find the weekly class highly beneficial.
She’s an excellent teacher, very clear on instructions and very helpful what to do if you can’t do the full range of a movement.
At 67, I’m interested in getting/staying limber and I do find the routines very good. I hadn’t realised, for example, my shoulders and back were quite stiff but now I know I try to move them more consciously.
I would thoroughly recommend her classes.
I didn’t have the chance to say bye as my last week got complicated with the international move.
I just want to say thank you for these years of incredible yoga classes and lovely atmosphere. I was always happy going there, it was my treat and my back and my health in general improved a lot thanks to you.
You are a super teacher! The best I had. In Madrid there are many places, but it’s not the same.
Big hug from sunny Spain.
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 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.
Paulines skill in teaching yoga is outstanding as she is able to instruct a class with mixed levels as I’m a beginner and have experienced the benefit of EXHALE yoga from day 1 and just feel better and better after each session whether its in her studio or online she delivers the same result.
I am a regular at Pauline’s weekly Yoga class.Once the Covid-19 restrictions forced the cancellation of all face-to-face classes Pauline quickly moved to delivering all her normal weekly classes online. The transition to online has been really smooth and the classes are just as effective. Pauline also supplemented with a weekly pre-recorded class which allowed me to start to build a daily yoga practice. I would highly recommend Pauline’s online classes. Pauline’s instructions are very clear and easy to follow and she pays close attention to making sure we follow the class in a safe and relaxed manner.
Pauline’s yoga classes are unique. The class size is small, which makes it personable and friendly. This, also allows for personal instruction and minor adaptions to suit a person’s particular physical needs.
Each week there is a different work out, which keeps you engaged with the instruction throughout the class. Direction is very clearly explained & movements broken down into small easy to follow steps. Each pose builds on the next and the result is that with ease you have achieved a yoga pose which you might never have thought possible.
The classes start with a relaxing stretch and some breath work and end in a similiar fashion.
During the recent lock down, our classes have moved to “on line”. Pauline has retained her unique, person focused style and things have continued as before, although we all do miss that we can’t meet up in person.
If you can’t make it to a face to face class with Pauline, I would strongly recommend doing her course on line. You will find your breathing, flexibility and sleep all improving in a matter of weeks.
Pauline’s classes are excellent, I have tried many teachers in Ireland and Asia over the past 15 years but her teaching surpasses any experience so far. Pauline’s classes are always in high demand and with good reason. She has a lot of loyal students. After each class I feel significantly more open, grounded and calm. Whatever your Level Pauline will accommodate. Thanks for all the great classes over the past 10yrs.
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
Pauline’s teaching style lends itself perfectly to the online forum. Personally I joined yoga to help improve flexibility in my hips after years of running. I was delighted to be able to continue with the classes using the virtual platform.
You have made our lockdown here in Gran Canaria wonderful. We are so lucky to have you lead us in our yoga practice.
When I practice my yoga I always hear your voice. ‘ Breath’ it’s so important.
Thank you Pauline
I always say to friends ‘ if you do nothing Do Yoga.
Pauline’s online yoga classes are terrific, she explains every position in detail so you always know that you’re doing the posture properly. Every class is different which is brilliant.
Although I miss the human interaction of attending classes, I am now accustomed to rolling out my yoga mat in my bedroom at 7.55 every Monday. I look forward to that time!
I would highly recommend Pauline’s online yoga classes. I always feel relaxed and calm afterwards and her postures keep my body flexible.
having attended classes with Pauline in Exhale for many years, I am delighted that Pauline, in the current restricted circumstances, has continued with the sessions online. They are excellent, the next best thing to attending the studio, and I look forward to participating in the online classes for the forseeable future.
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 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!
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.
