TEMPLE BAR & ON ZOOM
YOGA TEACHER AND OWNER/DIRECTOR OF SAMADHI
Greg Walsh Has been teaching yoga since 1999… before some of his students were born! He set up Samadhi in 2005, having run Prana Yoga Centre for 3 years. Greg is deeply passionate about yoga, as a practice, as a philosophy, and as a subject. He has taught yoga all over Ireland, Europe and the USA. He loves providing space for good yoga.
I was introduced to yoga in my mid 20’s whilst traveling in Nepal. I didn’t think it would be for me, but in fact I really took to it straight away. I initially practiced Satyananda yoga, but on my return to Dublin I was introduced to Iyengar yoga. Its strong physical challenge, focus on strong body awareness and attention to detail appealed to me immediately. I have studied primarily Iyengar yoga for 20 years, and really appreciate its clear physical focus.
I was awarded my Introductory Iyengar Teacher Training Certificate in 2002 after 2 years of intensive teacher training. In March 2016 I received my Intermediate Level 3 Certificate. I have stepped back from using the Iyengar name, as I often teach in a more exploratory and less rigid way than traditional Iyengar yoga is often presented.
For me, yoga is not a physical practice, it is an exploratory philosophical and energetic practice which uses the body to access the inner essence. We use yoga to gain control and mastery of our body, we use our body to access the breath, and we use the breath to gain mastery of our thoughts, our mind, our consciousness, our whole being.

Yoga first came into my life while in college in NYC, my hometown. I loved the effect it had on me. It seemed to bring strength and serenity to both my body and mind.
However, upon my move to Ireland, my yoga practice gave way to other things, namely Pilates. Then, a few years ago, when I needed it most, yoga came back to me. Immediately falling back in love with not only the practice, but the balance it helped bring to my busy life; I began to integrate yoga into my everyday life. With the encouragement and support of my amazing teachers, I embarked upon my yoga teacher training journey. Now a qualified RYT200, I consider myself so incredibly blessed to be able to share the practice with others. While I am a teacher, I am a student first, learning from teachers and students alike, and seeking to expand and deepen my practice.
