At this moment ...

I am a teacher of hatha flow yoga and Kundalini yoga in Dublin .

I did alot of my studying in Sydney Australia, where I spent 8 years living on and off.

I Began... studying an "advanced diploma of intregrated body therapies" full time and loved every minute as I have a big interest in the body, how it works and how to maintain it.

After I finished I worked full time as a remedial massage therapist, but not for long as my interest in yoga grew stronger I decided to complete a "diploma of yoga teacher training" at Nature Care College Sydney. It was a challenging and amazing year, life changing. It was full time for a year, Since then yoga has become not only my hobby but a way of living that makes me feel great, keeps my body working properly and most of all keeps my mind peaceful and relaxed.

The philosophy of Yoga, and its texts are amazing little treasures of knowledge that make so much sence to me, constantly putting life into perspective. I Feel that I have only touched on all that there is to learn in yoga, and hope I can keep learning and pass on my knowledge to others!

I completed a diploma of kundalini YogaTeacher Training in Limerick in 2010. I teach kundalini workshops on weekends.

I have continued studying with teachers such as Shiva Rea, Donna Farhi, John frend, Mia Finnes, Gurmuck and many others.I have a strong interest in meditation and practice vipassana buddhist meditation.

She studied there for two and a half years with some amazing teachers and completed the 300-hour teacher training in Yoga Works in 2012.

Alba Lorca

Alba has been teaching the Pilates method for the last 8 years.

Pilates was originally developed as a somatic form (proprioceptive awareness) of physical fitness conditioning in the early 1920s. Joseph Pilates emphasized the somatic principles of mind-body connection, tracking of proprioceptive observations, and attention to breathe. He believed that mental and physical health were essential to one another. Pilates uses correct alignment, centering, concentration, control, precision, breathing and flowing movement to establish a perfect working body from the inside out.

Pilates classes are designed to build a balanced body by accentuating on lengthening and aligning your body, rather than on bulking and shortening the muscles. The root of this practice is base on the core or ‘powerhouse’ of your body. The essential intrinsic core muscles are your Transverse Abdominus, Pelvic Floor and Multifidus muscles which we learn to train as part of the Pilates method and from where the inside out approach rise.

After her practice in Asthanga vingasa Yoga for several years, Alba heard about Pilates from a physiotherapist friend. She got hooked immediately by the Pilates principles. Like yoga, Pilates focuses on breath and movement, but emphasizes concentration rather than meditation. J. Pilates combined elements of yoga with athletic conditioning to create the exercise method that bears his name.

Alba is a qualified Pilates teacher in matwork and machine techniques from FitPilates, Madrid, Spain. She also belongs to the performing arts field. As an active artist she combines this activity with her teaching work. She graduated in Dramatic Art as well as Contemporary Dance. 

Alba complemented her professional training in the field of the psychology, studying Gestalt therapy. She believes that she is part of a unified whole so all these disciplines embody who she is as a person so as a teacher.

Her Pilates mat classes are designed to promote dynamic movement in the body utilizing breath, core strength, release unnecessary tension, alignment and develop inner awareness. And also, make students aware of their patterns of movement so that they can all identify them and develop their intelligence of the now. The classes are designed for participants that are injury free. If you have any concerns a private session is highly recommended to assess the issue and make you able to join the class securely.

''Change happens through movement and movement heals´´_Joseph Pilates

Dagmara Jerzak
Dagmara is a certified Hatha Yoga & Pilates teacher and a contemporary dance artist. After receiving a BA (hons) degree in contemporary dance in 2012 she moved to Dublin, where she’s been working as a performer, choreographer, and dance teacher.

While working in the creative industry which can be very demanding and requires a lot of energy and effort, Dagmara discovered Yoga and meditation which allowed her to find more work-life balance. At first it allowed her to find some quiet space within the mind and gradually she discovered that daily yoga and meditation practice helped with overcoming daily stress. It also allowed for coming back to the present moment and it brought more joy to everyday life.

Dagmara teaches variety of movement based classes and workshops in contemporary dance, Hatha Yoga, Pilates and mindful movement. Dagmara draws from her vast experience to create unique classes that blend movement, breath and body-mind connection. Her focus is on alignment that supports healthy body, working within the limitations of our bodies and encouraging opening up of restricted spaces within the body in a kind and supportive environment. Dagmara's classes are creative, challenging and fun, sprinkled with flowing breath and sense of freedom within the mind and body.

Kathryn O'Halloran
One-to-One Mindfulness classes with Kathryn O'Halloran
Mindfulness Trainer, MBSR/MBCT teacher, .b teacher, RGN
In our culture periods of stillness, silence, reflection and aloneness have been eliminated and because of that the stress level that everyone experiences is many, many times higher than that which has been habitual throughout human history.
The practice of meditation is something that has always been part of human societies and lives and particularly in modern culture we need to rediscover this ancient practice, just so we can fulfill our own biological an evolutionary destiny, just so we can be fully human. - (adapted from an interview with Reggie Ray - meditation teacher)
I will tailor these sessions to your personal needs and we can work together to address specific challenges.
About Kathryn: I am a qualified nurse with over 20 years’ experience, both at home and abroad and have been practising yoga and meditation for over ten years. I have undergone formal training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, Bangor University, Wales and have also completed Phase 4, the Teacher Development Intensive (TDI), in the training pathway to certification in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction with the Centre for Mindfulness (CFM), University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, Massachusetts.
Teaching mindfulness is something I feel very passionate about as I have experienced so many personal benefits from practising this way of living and I feel privileged to have witnessed many others as they realise they can live with more peace and happiness amidst the uncertain nurture of life.

Karen D Davies
Karen got her first taste of yoga as a child, practicing at home with her Mum and the cat! Though it wasn't until 2011 that she started taking classes regularly, and finally got hooked. She has been practicing at Yoga Dublin Studios since then under the guidance of Dave Curtis, Caroline Downey and Sibylle Dallmann. She recently took the leap to leave her software development career of 15 years, to dedicate herself to teaching yoga full-time.
She completed her 200 hour training between September 2014 and April 2015 with Ciara Cronin and Eithne Kennedy at The Yoga Room. She teaches a flowing vinyasa style, connecting breath to movement, and with an emphasis on alignment. She also incorporates meditation, yin and restorative yoga.
She believes that yoga is for everyone, no matter what age or fitness, and encourages acceptance of where you are rather than focusing on goals. Her classes are strong and challenging, but with an element of light-heartedness and fun, helping students to increase their confidence, discover their potential and most importantly to be happy and healthy.
