What we're about

We are a small and intimate yoga studio located in the heart of the city center. Our classes are based on the Vinyasa system of breath centered movement, building strength, improving flexibility, mindfulness, body awareness and stress reduction. Our teachers both draw on their own unique experience of the practice, developing creative sequencing while keeping within elements of the ancient tradition. New to yoga or already have an established practice come join us here . I am putting this on meetup because we are trying to build upon the yoga community in Cork and its always lovely to meet fellow yogis! Check our website for details http://www.corklotusyoga.com

For meetup we will charge a drop in rate of 10euro's per class unless you are a student or unemployed 8euro's per class.

Rebalance and restore Our morning flow will be a gentle but steady practice to reset your mind and body. Open to those who are beginning their yoga journey, want a slower paced flow, dealing with injuries or the envitable process of aging and the effects this can create in the body. In this class, we will focus on breath-based movement helping to connect the mind and body. Within our physical postures greater emphasis will be placed on creating strength, stability and support for the spine. We will look to stretch and open the body to release muscle tension, strenghen the softer connective tissue around our joints, and help to increase our over all range of motion, promoting balance within the structures of our body. Within all of this we will find calm, ease and relaxation.

Finding our core and building power from our centre will allow the student to become strong and stable, connecting each student to their own sense of determination, will power and inner strength. This class will look to creating stability in the body by focusing on particular core muscles; from our deep hip flexors to the abdominal family and our spinal supporters. Katie looks at the body and sees how everything is connected and needs to be working with eachother to create neuromuscular balance and stability. When our deep core muscles are toned and firing correctly we can greatly reduced back pain, pelvic instability and weak abdominals. Its a strong and challenging class, not suitable for the complete beginner.
