Yoga with Pam


Brand new to yoga or still getting to grips with the basics.

It’s best to learn the basics, which includes a class structure that becomes familiar to you, as well as beginner’s poses, or asana.

The intensity of the class matters. If you are a beginner but very fit, and able to handle a more rigorous routine, seek a general beginner’s, “basics” or “all levels” class.

You may be less mobile and need a slower-paced class. Seek a “gentle” or even a chair-yoga class until you feel ready to try a more traditional beginner’s approach. Chronic illness or injury recovery can also be supported with yoga; in this case the best support might be in a restorative class, or consider a one to one session

I love to share the basics with people new to yoga, and have been introducing people to yoga for over 20 years.

Please feel free to get in touch for further guidance. Or book a class here


Level 1: One or more years’ yoga experience, seeking more challenge.
Level 2: Two or more years’ yoga experience, good foundation, developing a personal practice.

If you have a year or so of yoga experience and would like to refine your practice, Shadow yoga foundations or the Balakrama are powerful sequences to develop not just muscular strength, but bone density, joint mobility, grace, and coordination.

BY POPULAR DEMAND: The Big Yoga & Sleep

October 26 – 29, 2023

In response to many requests for a longer weekend retreat, the Big Yoga & Sleep was introduced. Three nights in luxurious Lisnavagh in the heart of county Carlow allows time to settle in and really let go of the mundane daily life and delve into a richer yoga practice. We complement stronger morning practices with restorative sessions that include Yoga Nidra, marma massage, and guided relaxation sessions. Fresh air, walks, nutritious home-cooked food and a beautiful library in which to read and relax make this a full stop for body, mind and spirit.

Pam Butler Yoga Day Retreat



Traditionally, yoga was taught one to one to address specific needs of the individual, on that particular day, taking into account the time of life and physical capacity. By addressing your specific needs, private instruction helps you to develop your strength and confidence. Build and refine your practice organically and compassionately, with guidance.

Clients often join (or re-join) a group class when they are ready.

Private classes can be done online.

Tailored to your life, personal issues, and experience of yoga, one to one sessions can open you to new ideas and refine your current practice. Get in touch to find out more.


As a beginner who wishes to explore yoga in a private setting, or to work on a particular goal. Previous clients have chosen private lessons to improve their golf game, work gently with very stiff joints, strengthen a depleted immune system, and strengthen a weak physical structure that was
causing pain and fatigue.


If your priority is stress management, very gentle restorative techniques like relaxation practices, practices for specific womens’ issues, and more therapeutic applications are very beneficial. We will set up a simple practice you can do on your own to amplify the stress-reducing benefits that yoga brings. A private practice like this can also benefit from restorative workshops.


Those with yoga experience may wish to review, improve or learn more – whether it is to delve into a new pose, improve the rhythm of practice, or understand and prioritise the essentials for a well rounded personal practice tailored to your needs.
