Himalaya Yoga Valley is a leader in the field of yoga education sharing traditional teachings at our centres in Cork City and Ballincollig. Almost 7 years ago, Lalit and our entire team at Himalaya Yoga Valley wanted to bring affordable, accessible and authentic yoga to everybody in Cork.
Since opening our first centre, we opened another studio in the nearby town of Ballincollig and have developed relationships with local businesses through our wellness in the workplace and corporate yoga programmes. Our community work is a focus for both centres, and our yoga in the park project has raised over €76,000 for Cork Simon House and Pieta House.
Our centre is a global leader in yoga education. We deliver the highest quality yoga Teacher Training courses, yoga classes and workshops. Located conveniently in Cork City Centre, our goal is to make yoga accessible to everyone. With this in mind, we offer over 70 classes per week, including:
We expanded to Ballincollig in the summer of 2017 and opened a beautiful purpose built studio, bringing authentic yoga to the suburbs of Cork. Many clients attend both of our centres and enjoy the vibrant yoga community we have created. With over seventeen teachers who move between studios, we provide professional yoga for everybody with our wide range of classes.
All of our staff get great satisfaction from helping others through yoga. Yoga in the Park is a donation based outdoor yoga class that takes place on Saturday mornings. We hold classes over the summer months in Fitzgerald’s Park in aid of Cork Simon Community and the Regional Park Ballincollig in aid of Pieta House.
To date, this program has raised over €76,000 for the two organisations. Cork Simon Community is an emergency shelter for the housing and homeless crisis in Cork; Pieta House is a free service providing professional one-to-one services for people who are experiencing suicidal ideation, people who have attempted suicide and people who are engaging in self-harm.
We hold an annual 200 & 300 Hour Teacher Training in Cork as part of our mission to make traditional yoga more accessible. These courses have the same robust syllabus as our trainings in Goa, but is for those looking to access a depth of traditional and authentic teachings closer to home.
Trainings are lead by school founder Yogacharya Lalit Kumar and his expert team of teachers. Himalaya Yoga Valley is dedicated to honouring and sharing traditional Ashtanga and Hatha yoga practices as passed on by the great masters before us through our schools lineage and the highest professional standards of training delivery.
