Ilonka has been teaching and practicing yoga since 1980. Since it has become a way of life for her, she has developed her own unique style with an emphasis on relaxation and tuning in to the inner self. In this way the bodies own healing forces can be enhanced and one can get more in touch with ones “true self” With her intuitive, meditative and gentle approach to the asanas (yoga postures) and a strong emphasis on the power of the breath one trains the mind to tune inwardly and become more aware of the overall healing effects on body, mind, and spirit. In her teaching, Ilonka also uses chanting, sounds (mantras), and the Indian harmonium, to further enhance the’ healing process.
Her classes are suitable for all age groups and pupils can range from the very young to the elderly. The classes are especially helpful to people with stress-related problems such as anxiety, insomnia, and chronic fatigue. Ilonka also offers a special programme for leaving certificate students, to help them unwind and prepare for their exams in a relaxed and positive state of mind. She holds regular classes in Aerial Flow Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Relaxation, Pre & Post-natal Yoga and Baby massage, Dance/ Meditation, and Laughter Yoga.
