Class will start at 11am with the wonderful Louise Horgan from LouYoga and is €5 . Thanks so much to the residents of this stunning private square for trailing this. Please walk, cycle or take public transport, as we don’t want to crowd there neighbourhood’s parking spaces on a Saturday morning. Much like how we did in Dartmouth Square.

As many of you are wondering… Why not Dartmouth Square or St Anne’s Park or a public space! This year has brought some changes to our much loved Happening’s Yoga, as of right now we have not been able to secure permission to use DCC’s public parks as we have done in previous years. We are busy trying to see if we can, and to find out how and why this change came about, we will get to the bottom of it and be back with updates on that when we know everything. Stay tuned.
