Orla has been practicing yoga for the past five years. Formerly an international runner, Orla was advised by a physical therapist to try yoga in order to alleviate tightness in the body. She was pleasantly surprised with the many benefits that a regular yoga practice has brought to her life.
Orla trained at The Yoga Room in 2013 and also completed a Kids Yoga Course in May of 2014.
Orla's classes are friendly and relaxed. She sets out enjoyable and beneficial sequences, seeking to marry careful alignment with a themed, flowing series. She likes her classes to be playful, all the while following a linear flow with the early poses preceding the more challenging peak poses.
Orla is a former English teacher and loves to bring little verses or quotations into the yoga space. She likes to teach to a backdrop of meditative music and enjoys the relaxation that both can bring.
"I'm really enjoying being part of the Yoga Dublin team. Between the connection with other yogis and the wave of energy I am riding on, I feel very lucky that this is my job"
