The Ananta Yoga & Ayurveda Centre is an oasis of calm located at No 5, Wentworth Place in the heart of Wicklow Town overlooking the beautiful green space of the Abbey Grounds. Founder & manager Liz Richards along with her fantastic team of dedicated & knowledgeable instructors has been delivering the highest standards of classical Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga classes & Yoga education along with holistic healing modalities in County Wicklow since 2009.
The ancient practice of Yoga unites mind, body & breath into one harmonious experience. It provides an anchor and a support for navigating our lives in an often turbulent world. Through this beautiful & wise practice, the body becomes energised, strong & flexible. The mind becomes peaceful, clear and light. As the body & mind follow the breath we find space. Space to listen. Space to become aware of our patterns & conditionings. Space to expand & to grow. Space to heal & to let go. Space to return to our natural state of peace, harmony and love. Space to remember who we truly are. Ayurveda is the sister science of Yoga. It is one of the most ancient & efficient health & healing systems available. It teaches us how to take back our power and to tap into our own innate wisdom to manage and support our health so we feel truly alive.
