Ayurvedic Medicine in 1997, which is an intensive training in Government College of Indian Medicine, Bangalore. The syllabus is affiliated to WHO standards and the training is similar to western medicine in terms of learning modalities, subjects and training in western hospitals for the relevant subjects along with Ayurveda, naturopathy, Yoga and meditation. I enjoyed learning the vast and variety in subjects and got to know good friends who are still a good part of my carrier life.

I learnt and understood that health is the balance between mind, body, senses, spirit and soul and it is a constant learning process of keeping our perspective stable and healthy. We need to be mindful of our choices in life and get the best out of everything. Think well, eat well, rest well and know our strengths and problem areas and correct them with the best of the available knowledge. Ayurveda is a complete comprehensive health care, which helps to its fullest when we approach with best intentions

I started my debut at my private clinic in Bangalore and joined the highly esteemed Maharishi Ayurveda group in 2000 and worked at the international clinics at Holland, Germany, Russia, Ukraine for 2 years. With the new baby arriving in 2002 I had to relocate to Bangalore where I worked in my own clinic till 2006 and then an opportunity opened  up at Kinglsey spa for a Holistic Ayurvedic  Spa and I got through to work here

In 2013 I started to work for myself and established clinics at Cork, Midleton and Limerick. I became founder, owner practitioner and senior therapist of Gita Ayurveda n Physical Therapy and started first at Midleton Park spa, Midleton & Savoy Hotel Spa, Limerick.

Yoga Instructor

Hi, my name is Eva and I love yoga so much that it can be infectious or really annoying depending on where you’re sitting.
I’m trying to apply yoga principles everywhere, but I’m only a human so you will see me sometimes eating an ice cream too. I started my yoga practice many years ago with ups and downs, sometimes very serious, sometimes non for few months. And you know… it is really happening to all of us. Eventually, I realised that yoga is a great tool to make yourself happy and I do really mean that. Seeing things from different perspective can be an eye and heart opener (yes, I’m mad about inversions). After a big turn in my life I decided to take yoga teacher training with no particular intention to teach. But things evolved so much, that I actually can’t imagine my life now without sharing practice with others.
In 2013 I finished my 200 hour teacher trainig with Yoga Diploma in Cork, then took kids training course with Rainbow Kids Yoga in London in September same year. Having those two in a background I started to teach public yoga classes and I was just amazed how enjoiable it is. I’ve practiced many different styles of yoga (in general I think it’s all same old hatha yoga, just with different labels, that really doesn’t matter for all benefits you get from practicing) and I use them as inspiration, but really I just teach mix that feels good in the moment.
I’ve been teaching yoga for a while now, but still mixing up my lefts and rights at least once in every single class. If that bothers you, stay far far away. My goal is to make yoga challenging but accesible and to bring greater awareness to both body and mind in a safe and relaxed manner. I also try to keep yoga light hearted, which means you’ll hear some jokes sometimes and to not take yoga to serious.

Shama Kaur

Axial Reconnection Therapist, Kundalini Yoga Teacher

Kundalini Yoga is the science to unite the finite with Infinity, and it’s the art to experience Infinity in the finite.”
Yogi Bhajan, 10/27/88

Intrigued by the many questions about love, the universe, and the meaning of life, Shama Kaur started her spiritual path when she was still a teenager. After exploring different therapies such as Reike, she felt the need to deepen her understanding about herself and was able to do so through Kundalini Yoga and Axial Reconnection Therapy.

Shama first moved to Ireland from Brazil in 2008. She was introduced to yoga at a young age but it was in 2012 through her love for music and mantras that she discovered  Kundalini Yoga and soon developed a passion for it. Amazed by the experience of bliss, how energised and inspired it made her feel, and combining it with her love for children she decided to complete the Radiant Child Yoga Training in 2013 at the Well Within Yoga Centre in Cork.

She went back to Brazil later in 2013 where she started working as an English Teacher for children from 4 to 13 years old. Moved by her vision of sharing the benefits of yoga with children and realizing how much this could positively affect them she managed to introduce yoga in the classroom which helped her to build a strong connection with her students, improve their concentration, confidence and sense of well being.

To deepen her own practice and to share the profound effects of Kundalini Yoga with others, Shama decided to train as a Yoga teacher with Nanak Ashram Institute in Florianópolis, Brazil.

Feeling the call of the Emerald Isle she then returned to Cork in 2015. She now lives in Midleton where she works as a Kundalini Yoga teacher and also as an Axial Reconnection Therapist. In addition during the Summer she coordinated a number of kids summer camps in Ballincollig where she incorporated yoga, meditation and mindfulness into the programme.

Shama says her passion comes from the will of helping people to find that spark inside them, that deep understanding of their potential and how amazing they are.

Wendy Hickey

Yoga Instructor

When I was a child movement was very important to me and the body’s abilities fascinated me. As a child I spent a lot of my time on my hands doing cartwheels, handstands and playing around with gymnastics  (although never officially trained) , I loved experimenting with what I could do. Affectionately called “bendy Wendy ” by my family.

So I naturally felt the benefits and enjoyed the asana part of yoga when I first experienced it while I lived in Italy in 1995 but it wasn’t until I returned to Ireland in 1997 that I really fell in love with it.

I did a course in Holistic health studies and Yoga was part of the course. It was during one of my yoga sessions there that something profound happened to me. While in yoga nidra ( final relaxation) I felt like a flood gate had opened and a rush of lightness flowed through my whole body, I felt this amazing tingling sensation and for the first time in my life felt really at home. It was quite magical and beautiful. It was in that moment where I thought “this is what I want to do with my life”.

I found myself a great teacher in Dublin and took one to one lessons with her and attended her classes too. I decided to train as a teacher and I loved her style so much that signed up with the same scho. I undertook my Yoga teacher training in the Sivananda Centre in Canada in 2001.

On my return to Ireland I start teaching classes straight away. I taught in Dublin for 2yrs mainly adult classes and the leinster rugby team. And continued teaching then in Cork when I moved here in 2003.
I have continued to keep my training up over the years, especially during the times when I stopped teaching (I took time out after having my two kids). I have done quite a bit of training in the Scaravelli style, yoga therapy, yoga for pregnancy, kids yoga, Iyengar yoga and also other body movement workshops in Alexandre technique and Feldenkrais.
I have fallen of my mat (metaphorically speaking) many times but no matter what happens I always come back to yoga.
I am passionate about the body awareness yoga can give you and how much you can receive from the final relaxation(nidra) , which to me is where to most benefit lies.

Audrey Ellard Walsh is a vinyasa yoga teacher based between Cork and Kilkenny.
Her yoga journey began in 2014 while searching for a way to help manage migraines and work stress while working in a busy media job. She quickly fell in love with the practice, feeling first hand the profound mental and physical benefits that yoga offers. 
She travelled to India in 2017 to deepen her practice and completed her 200 hour teacher training with Bodhi Yoga at The Yoga Loft, Cork, in 2018. She is a member of Yoga Alliance Professionals and regularly participates in retreats and workshops to learn new methods to incorporate into her classes.
Audrey is passionate about sharing the joy of yoga with her students and strives to keep her classes mindful, heartfelt, and fun. She is particularly focused on the importance of meditation and pranayama for cultivating a mind-body connection that serves students both on and off the mat. 
Her beginners classes are suitable for people with little or no yoga experience, or for those returning to exercise after a long break. Her improvers classes are a little more dynamic and suitable for people with a knowledge of yoga fundamentals.

Emer

Vinyasa Yoga Instructor

I first took a yoga class over 10 years ago, in one of the meeting rooms in the office where I worked. I fell in love, and went on to explore lots of different classes and styles over the following years, until I found my teacher Sunnah Rose and her beautiful blend of hatha and vinyasa yoga. In 2017 I returned to Cork to complete my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Lalit Kumar at Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre Cork, where I went on to teach full time for two years.  As a teacher, I aim to support students to explore their practice in a way that both challenges and nourishes them. Above all, I believe yoga should offer you space to connect with your body, mind and breath. I am also certified in Pregnancy Yoga and Chair Yoga. Recently have been very fortunate to study with Cecily Milne of Yoga Detour and Jules Mitchell, author of Yoga Biomechanics – both of whom have had a big influence on my own practice and teaching style. Aside from yoga, my passions include exploring nature and throwing myself into the sea at any opportunity, preferably first thing in the morning.
