On The QT

Yoga in the Park at Fitzgeralds Park Cork!

Blogger: Lauren Lucy Crowley

The sun was shining, it was a bank holiday weekend… what better way to spend a Saturday morning than at Yoga in the Park with the crew at Himalaya Yoga Valley centre!

The outdoor yoga class started at 10am in Fitzgeralds park.  Each participant simply brought a mat or towel to sit on, whilst the extremely flexible and informative instructor demonstrated/ gave instruction throughout the class for us to follow! (There were also a couple of assistants walking around the class correcting anyone who was a little uncertain of the postures!)

Although I’m not very experienced at yoga practice it wasn’t too difficult to follow the instructions. There were easy and more advanced versions of each pose to suit everyone in attendance! My favourite element was definitely the Shavasana at the end of the class… it was uber relaxing to switch off and scan my entire body for muscle tension! The class came to a close with a unique chant which was also pretty cool!

Not only is the class enjoyable, relaxing, extremely beneficial for your body… all the proceedings are for charity! Upon attendance simply donate whatever you can afford, and every cent goes to the Simon Community!

The classes will be running all summer long at 10am, so be sure to go along and try it out! (OnTheQT tip: arrive at least 15 mins before class to find a spot on the grass and to be ready to begin at 10am!) Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! x
