Grace Tempany

Grace’s care and respect for each person really encourages each person to feel safe and to practice to their own potential.

Grace Tempany has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and has been teaching since 2013.

She is one of the most well know Yin yoga teachers in Ireland and also specialised in trauma-informed and functional yoga.

Grace’s care and respect for each person really encourage each person to feel safe and to practice to their own potential.

 

Grace trained with Mysan Sidbo who is a long-time assistant of Paul Grilley. 

She honors the individuality of each student realizing that we are all uniquely made up of different body structures including skeletal variation and functional anatomy.

Grace has completed 400 hours of training with Mysan and also assisted her with her teacher training programmes.

Grace also trained with another of the famous Yin Yoga teachers Sarah Powers and through her became interested in Vipassana mediation. 

This has had a big influence on Grace’s own personal meditation practice and also her teaching philosophy.

 

In her classes, she teaches Yin yoga where her teaching will lead you to very deep states of letting go.

Grace also trained with another of the famous Yin Yoga teachers Sarah Powers and through her became interested in Vipassana mediation. 

This has had a big influence on Grace’s own personal meditation practice and also her teaching philosophy.

 

She fully realizes the importance of providing a safe space for students to explore the yoga practices, and especially having the experience not to try to fill natural spaces of silence with talking.  These silent spaces are essential for each student to get in touch with their own inner world, and Grace uses her experience not to disturb these opportunities for growth.
