We’re delighted to be welcoming Eddie Stern to Dublin this year.
Eddie is a yoga teacher, author, and lecturer from New York City. He is known for his multi-disciplinary approach to furthering education and access to yoga, as well as his teaching expertise in Ashtanga Yoga.
His bestselling first solo book, One Simple Thing: A New Look at the Science of Yoga, examines in clear and simple language the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms that make yoga an effective practice.
He is the co-creator of The Breathing App, which guides the user in a paced breathing exercise that balances the nervous system, helping to improve sleep, and reduce stress and anxiety.
Eddie is one of the most highly-regarded yoga teachers in the world today. His depth of knowledge of yoga philosophy, along with his ability to explain complex ideas in simple terms, are just two of the reasons he has gained a reputation as such a great educator in the field.

1: Stillness, Feeling, Acting and Thinking: The Four Modes of Yoga
The four paths of yoga that represent the four basic ways that we interact with the world. Yoga at its core is the practice of knowing who we are on a deep level. The access we have to that inner knowledge gets cloudy because our minds are filled with thoughts, desires, confusion, conflict, and regrets. Yoga provides remedies for all of these mental difficulties, which are reflected through the four paths, or modes, of yoga. In this class, you will learn what the four paths are, how they apply to you, and what states of mind the four paths can help to soothe, so that you can use them to help strengthen your positive mental traits, and gradually diminish negative mental states. This class will include
chanting, pranayama, and lecture.
This class will cover yoga practices for back pain and core strengthening. The postures will include a protocol currently being used in a three-year back pain study at New York University’s Langone School of Medicine. We will discuss the different poses and why they were chosen. Time for questions, individual aches and pains, and experimentation for individual needs will be an integral part of the class.
3: Yoga, Resonance and Inflammation
When two or more things relate harmoniously, such as when I relate well to you, you to me, or two moons circle a planet, there is resonance. It is a pattern of harmony. Within our body, resonance occurs when our heart rate, the changes of our heart rate (called heart rate variability), our blood pressure, and brainwaves all come together in a coherent signaling pattern. When this happens, there are several amazing things that happen: our emotional and physiological resiliency increase; cardiovascular health improves; stress reduces; sleep improves; and the nervous system becomes increasingly well balanced. It is quite simple to enter into resonance: all we have to do is breathe in a specific way, for about 10 minutes a day. In this talk, you will learn how to breathe with resonance, and have a direct experience of brainwave coherence. We will conclude the talk with a practice session with The Breathing App, which is designed specifically to help guide your breathing into a resonant state.
