Bella Hancock first practised yoga as a child, when she was introduced to the practice by a family friend. She was fortunate enough to attend classes at high school and then practised for many years on and off until she undertook the commitment to train as a teacher and deepen her study of yoga and meditation in 2000. She has lovely soft light energies, and brings to you a sense of openness and ease in her presence.
Eleanor Dawson has lovely soft energies and has been practicing yoga since the 1990’s. She completed her 750-hour yoga teacher training in the Viniyoga tradition and this form of yoga modifies the postures and practices so they are tailored to suit each individual person so that anybody can practice yoga. Eleanor brings mindfulness and awareness to all her teaching, and this helps bring one’s awareness into the present moment and to help let go of any cares or worries. As Eleanor guides you to tune inwards in the present moment, you will begin to feel a sense of peacefulness within.
Kathryn Moynihan teaches Vinyasa yoga and also meditation full time in Cork city. Her classes are flowing and range from very gentle practices suitable for all ages to stronger more challenging practices designed to remove energy blocks for more experienced practitioners. Kathryn places a lot of emphasis on the breath and this is brought into all of her classes. As well as teaching Vinyasa yoga, Kathryn also teaches Yin yoga and Restorative yoga.
Marie Quail is a well-known name within the yoga community and has been practicing yoga since the 70’s. Marie draws on her extensive experience of Iyengar yoga and also yoga-therapy to teach details of each posture so that they are suitable for all ages and all levels of ability. Marie is a very mature yoga practitioner and teacher and brings breath awareness and the focusing of attention into one’s physical practice so that each person works at their own level. Marie uses breath awareness of softening into the physical posture and has a lot of experience of teaching people with injuries.
Situated in the heart of the unique Burren landscape, the Burren Yoga and Meditation Centre is ideally situated to provide a haven of calm for yoga practice, or just getting away from it all. I have stayed at the Centre on number of occasions, and would heartily recommend it to anyone practising or wanting to try yoga.There are a lot of different types of yoga on offer, the teachers are well qualified, and the numbers are restricted to 15 per course, which ensures lots of individual attention. The owner, who lives on site, offers guided walks into the area each day.The Centre is relatively isolated, but the directions given to the visitor are excellent. The Centre itself is cozy and welcoming. No shoes are worn inside the buildings, but the underfloor heating keeps the feet cozy.The centre is clean and bright, with lots of natural light. There is a lounge for relaxation, and a reading area. Accommodation is simple but very comfortable with a range of options available.The food, both delicious and nutritious, is provided by a gourmet vegetarian chef who manages to imbue her dishes with the special energy of the place. Staffs are very friendly and the atmosphere is home from home. An excellent massage therapist is available on request. Top marks overall!!

My stay in November '08 was my third stay at the Burren Yoga Centre over the past two years. Each stay has been very enjoyable and relaxing. I've attend Ciara Cronins Ashtanga weekend course which is quite dynamic as well as Tadhg Ferriters Satyananda course which is at a more relaxed pace. I would highly recommend both teachers. The teachers are very supportive, so beginners are catered for, as well as advanced students.

I went on a yoga weekend in January with Debbie Corradino. The yoga was fantastic and it has given me the incentive to keep it up at home on a daily basis.
The centre itself is lovely. Set in a gorgeous part of the Burren, just outside Kinvara. You can get single, twin/double or dorm rooms. They all seemed comfortable and warm. The beds are luxurious. Needed after a day of walking in the burren and yoga.The food is also gorgeous and healthy. So, you feel great afterwards. I met a lovely group of people at the centre. And Dave who owns it was really friendly and helpful. Some people were there on their own, some with a friend or partner.The atmosphere in the place is very laid back. Perfect either for meeting new people, or going off on your own. Anything goes. I would definitely recommend the Burren Yoga centre. There seems to be a range of course to suit beginners or more advanced.
