Over the years I have worked in different industries, I had a little cafe with Grainne in the Triskel, worked in advertising for over 15 years with the Irish Examiner & The Sunday Independent, great experiences and busy days. I had always been encouraged at home to try new things, and I was lucky enough to meet a great yoga teacher, Linda Champ along the way. Linda encouraged me to attend different classes in my travels with work, try different styles of yoga and bring yoga into my daily life.  I knew I wanted to deepen my yoga practice and decided to complete my 200hr training. I continue to train with amazing teachers, Josh Summers in Yin Yoga, Sonia Sumar, in special needs yoga. Sonia helped with with my own practice as well as inspiring me to bring yoga to everyone.  My hope is that my students enjoy yoga as much as I do!!!

Carmel Cronin (087) 9694378 

Carmel has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years and is originally from Limerick. She has travelled extensively and lived in South Africa, UK and Paris before setting roots with her family in Cork. Carmel first came across yoga when she was in college and enjoyed the open feeling in the body and also the way the breath can bring one’s awareness inwards. She was fortunate to also be interested in meditation from an early age, and later went on to study Transcendental Meditation and found the stress relieving benefits of meditation to be life transforming. Carmel believes that meditation has the potential to create conditions of innate healing and combined with the physical practise of yoga and breathing, brings mental and physical balance to one’s whole being. https://yogazone.ie/about-carmel/
