Welcome to our Shala

The Yoga House is located in the heart of An Déise's beautiful countryside (West Waterford) Our Shala (Yoga Studio) is an amazing space that is perfectly conducive to the Practice of Yoga. There is a very special atmosphere of peacefulness and comfort so that all our classes and workshops feel like a welcome retreat from the daily stresses that can accumulate in our lives.

The premises was originally a Schoolhouse, built in 1812 and so we feel it is wonderfully appropriate that it continues to be a place of learning, evolution & growth.

We have a spacious car park, changing room & shower facilities, year round classes & workshops and an enchanting garden with a stream and big old trees that our guests/students are free to explore.

We look forward to welcoming you into our Yoga Community, whether a beginner, a lapsed Yogi, a regular Practitioner or even a teacher.

Namaste.
