Ayurveda Relief from Satmya in Ireland

While I am here in Ireland leading the 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training, and guiding these beautiful goddesses in their own transformation I was faced with a new found allergy.  Since Ireland is having this glorious record breaking weather of incredible sunshine they are also having a high pollen count.  It is also possible I am having allergies to the beautiful cats that live at Mia’s home (Lakshmi and Kevin).

I did not bring my neti pot with me, and while I knew I could do some steam (Nasya) but I chose to visit this beautiful local Ayurveda shop in Killaloe.  The shop is called Satmya and a brilliant couple, Doug Hyde (Ayurveda) and Yvette Sheridan (Holistic Medicine) provide amazing service to the community in Limerick with natural remedies.  While Doug had suggested Nasya which is an Ayurveda treatment involving gentle facial massage, steam, and then use of medicated powder/oil in the nasal passage, somehow I did not feel like doing that.  My dad and my grandmother would always do steam and pepper in the nose to clear congestion, and I was never a fan.  Instead I chose the homeopathic remedy, and it provided some relief.

The shop is very beautiful and they offer a host of body treatments, teas, herbs, creams, oils, books, and of course insight/advice.  While I was there, I also picked up some chawanprash (the Indian Multi Vitamin), Triphala (for cleansing), and a beautiful hair oil that is great for head massage and improving hair and scalp health.  I did not pack my usual hair oil, so this was a nice treat.  The teacher trainees also picked up some Ayurveda remedies of their own.

Thank you so much to the lovely couple and Satmya.  If you are local to Ireland and want to have some natural remedy for your health, I highly recommend taking the trip to Killaloe, County Clare and visiting Satmya.  You can also visit their website for more information:
