My name is Alice Carroll and I am a fully qualified Yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance) and Pregnancy Yoga teacher (YTI). I began my yoga journey approximately 20 years ago and found it gave me a sense of wellness both physically and mentally. In Oct 2007 I embarked on a yoga teacher training programme in the Elbowroom, graduating in August 2008 with a Yoga alliance teaching diploma.
I left the corporate world of IT behind me in March 2010 and took the plunge in setting up my own business to pursue a more life-balancing career as a full-time yoga teacher.
I enjoy sharing my passion for yoga and its many benefits to students of all levels. I teach classes suitable for beginners and those who like a stronger practice. My Hatha based classes are fun, fluid, progressive and intuitive with emphasis on the importance of the breath throughout. Each class finishes with a guided relaxation as I believe it is vitally important as a means of integrating all that’s happened in the class and ensuring that the student leaves the class in a relaxed state of body and mind.
In 2012 I opened my own studio in Portarlington, Co. Laois. In 2015 I added other yoga teachers to the class schedule. Over the years I’ve completed trainings in kids yoga, pregnancy yoga, mam & baby yoga, restorative yoga, yin yoga, yoga for sports and chair yoga.
In March 2020 I closed my yoga studio with the advent of the covid-19 virus and began teaching online classes using Zoom which allows people to continue their yoga practice from the comfort & safety of their own homes. While the threat & restrictions of the covid virus remain, I will continue with online classes to ensure all our safety. Welcome to this adventure with me.
