Now you can do yoga in the opulent drawing room of Fota House
You won’t find a prettier setting for your Saturday morning stretch.
The first ever yoga classes to take place in the historic drawing room of Fota House begin this weekend, continuing every Saturday throughout the summer.
Hosted by Grainne Ferreira of Dandelion Yoga, the class (€12, drop-in) begins at 11am and runs until 12.20pm – perfect timing for lunch or a well-deserved cup of coffee in the Fota House Cafe afterwards.
The primary focus of Grainne’s classes is on the relationship between the breath, body and mind as you flow through the sequence of Asanas (poses), improving alignment, awareness, strength and flexibility as you go.
All this while you take in the exquisite Regency features of the drawing room, complete with scagliola columns, painted ceilings and plasterwork – beats your usual class at the local community centre.
Fancy being among the first yogis to do the downward dog in this 1820’s mansion? Sign up for this Saturday’s class at Dandelion Yoga here.
