Last call for Yoga in the Park

Wednesday, 6th September, 2017 5:58pm

Every Saturday at 10am from the months of June-September this year, yoga enthusiasts and novices stretched their hearts to help fight homelessness through yoga.

The class on Saturday morning will be led by Lalit Kumar, the founder of Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre. Lalit has been practicing yoga since the age of seven at traditional schools in India. Himalaya Yoga Valley opened a studio in Cork in 2012 and runs yoga classes and workshops from its centre at Penrose Wharf. The company celebrated its fifth anniversary in Cork this summer by announcing the opening of a second studio space in Ballincollig.

Marion Courtney, Business Manager at Himalaya Yoga Valley, said: "We hope to see as many people as possible out on the mat this Saturday for our final day of Yoga in the Park. We will be presenting 100 per cent of the class proceeds raised from Yoga in the Park 2017 to the Cork Simon Community at the event and are confident that we will reach our fundraising target again this year. This special event brings the whole yoga community together to help the Cork homeless crisis so we hope to have a big turnout again for this the grand finale!"

You can register for your class online at or on the Mind Body App.
