And here's autumn...

I'm Colm Walsh, the owner of Yoga Dublin.

 

This is my 20th year running yoga and pilates classes in Dublin. I guess when I started back in 2003, I didn't realise in the future I'd have to 'pivot' online, get through two years of closure, apart from some false starts, and then 'reopen'...wasn't it hard enough the first few times at different locations?

 

I had come to yoga about five years previously to my first studio opening & gradually got immersed in the Iyengar method, then dabbled in astanga, vinyasa flow and whatever else. It was a natural progression towards practicing, teaching and then the business of the business of yoga and pilates. It's been an *interesting* journey through yoga training, to teaching, evolving practice, babies, life, death and everything else, but never boring.

I met a couple people doing my 'karma yoga' shift on front desk today, I hadn't seen them since 2020 in Yoga Dublin. They were so happy to be back, due to some staff resource issues, I've been mucking in on reception around the studios. It's always good to talk to you guys & see what's going on! The feedback is..practice is so much better in-studio, confidence is re-emerging, community is re-building, I'm hearing giggles and laughter in the corridors, and the coffee outlets are heaving..

I am delighted to announce the revival of our Hot Yoga by Yoga Dublin location on the first floor, 111 Lower Rathmines Road. We are upgrading infrared heaters, new tech has arrived, the place is going to spring into life this weekend 8th/9th with some free pop-ups, full schedule from 10th...c'mon down? 28-30*C and blast away the autumnal coolness.

I was able to take a breather out west early September for my last couple western swims, I remind myself of there with this  photo of my swimming spot 'An Trá Beag' on mid-summer's day. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon.
