Walking through Walls offers workshops in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vipassana meditation as taught by Eoin McCarthy. Non-commercial in their approach, these classes have a strong emphasis on raising levels of consciousness through asana and working with the breath from core awareness and one’s intention. In each of these sessions, yoga is taught as a long-term, sustainable practice and as a discipline geared towards the self-development of the individual.
Eoin’s teaching style focuses on understanding and discovering the self: to become aware of one’s own thought and behavior patterns, facing fears and overcoming doubts and limitations. Increased levels of attention leads to awareness, which in turn cultivates higher levels of intuition, which then develops into wisdom and ultimately, increased levels of consciousness.
“To know yourself is to know the Universe and the gods.”– inscription in the temple at Delphi.
