              Ciaran Hourihan

    Yoga Teacher

    Having done a degree a Philosophy and Politics at university, I believed that problems should be solved through intense debate and thinking. Since then, through yoga, I have discovered another way; one that is joyful, vibrant, healthy, inclusive and quite frankly more fun.

    When I first got into yoga, I was working full-time as a Gym Instructor/Personal Trainer, and my days were filled with experimenting with different training techniques.

    I can remember very distinctly the first time I practiced yoga; the profound relief I experienced in my body and mind will stay with me forever. Since then I have continued to come back to yoga at every opportunity, and was excited to train as a yoga teacher so that I can share the amazing benefits of this practice.

    Many people find that when doing yoga, they may have very deep personal experiences. This can range from simply re-discovering their inner calm mental state, or even the transcendental. My aim is to provide a judgment-free class where you yourself can experience these positives changes in your body and mind with your own understanding and interpretation. I am here simply to offer guidance and help.

    Events Manager Assistant:

    We host social events, from clothes swaps to markets and dinner parties. We would like to grow this aspect of the CIC as we feel these events bring the whole community together and offer individuals an ethical way to spend and interact.
