Written by Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre |


‘Yoga in the Park with Himalaya Yoga Valley’ is back again this summer in the beautiful setting of Fitzgerald’s Park and the Regional Park Ballincollig.

The class at Fitzgerald’s Park will take place in front of the bandstand and run from 10:00-11:15am. The class at the Regional Park Ballincollig will run from 10:15-11:30am.

Every Saturday from June 1st-September 7th, yoga enthusiasts and novices will stretch it out and improve their own physical and mental health while supporting those in need! Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre will host this weekly donation yoga class. Last year, over 400 people joined the Himalaya Yoga Valley team across both parks for Yoga in the Park and this year they hope to make it an even greater success!

Cork Simon’s Director, Dermot Kavanagh, said “This is what community is all about – people believing in people; coming together to support men, women and children in our community who are suffering from the exclusion, isolation and devastation of homelessness. The support of Himalaya Yoga Valley and all those participating in this very popular event over the last five years have helped us to keep our doors open for every person turning to us for help – it’s Cork at its best.”

To take part in ‘Yoga in the Park with Himalaya Yoga Valley’ all you need to bring along is your yoga mat, donation (minimum €5), water and sunscreen. All ages and abilities are welcome and this is a family friendly event. Follow Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre Cork on social media to keep up to date on weather updates each Saturday.

7 Refreshing Strolls In And Around Dublin That Will Clear Your Head

If everything is slightly fuzzy after last night then you’re probably well in need of a walk.

A good ould stretch of the legs and about 500 breaths of fresh air.

You’ll be right as rain and ready to go right back out and hit the town again tonight.

Here are some wonderful strolls around Dublin to clear the head. Go on.

1. The Great South Wall walk
The beauty of walking The Great South Wall all the way out to Poolbeg Lighthouse is that it’s quite close to the city center, so there’s no need to drive for half an hour in order to get a bit of well-needed fresh air.


2. Howth Head walk
This walk is stunning. Come rain, hail or shine you’re always guaranteed breathless beauty along the cliffs of Howth. And the freshest air going.

Pack a picnic, grab the dog and have an adventure in one of the most gorge places in Dublin.

3. Skerries seafront trail
This divine walk will take you along the seafront and through the main street.

Stunning views, fresh sea air and a bitta exercise?

A Saturday well spent.

4. The Dublin Mountains

These mountains are right on our doorstep so you really have no excuses not to give them a go.

The most scenic views come from a bird’s eye position, and that’s exactly what you’ll get on Dublin’s mountains.

5. The Phoenix Park
Always a winner in my eyes, and not just for proximity, The Phoenix Park has gorge green scenes for miles.

And miles. And miles.

Go get lost in our city’s largest park, follow the deer, breathe that fresh air and forget what time it is.

6. The Bray to Greystones walk
This walk takes you from Bray to Greystones along the stunning coastal path.

It’s about 7km one way and will take roughly two hours. And sure if you’re knackered just take the DART back. Not that we would do that…

7. Ticknock walk
Not only does Ticknock boast some of the best views of the city – but it’s also home to some super-interesting human heritage if you’re into that sort of thing.

And most importantly fresh, fresh air.
