I don’t even know where to start with this review, I only wish that I could rate more than 5 stars!
I have attended pregnancy yoga classes with both of my pregnancies, and baby massage and mam and baby yoga with my first born (having only recently given birth to my second baby!) I found all of the above to be invaluable to me and my well being, both mentally and physically throughout and after my pregnancies. I would urge all expectant mothers to attend these classes. You will not be disappointed.

Now, onto the hypnobirthing class run by the incredibly knowledgeable and amiable Naomi. My husband and I attended at 6 months pregnant, and found the class to be excellent. It really prepared us for what was to come, better than any antenatal class. The CD that came with the course was a GODSEND not only when DDay arrived, but also in the weeks and months prior to the event. If like me, you are nervous about labour, please consider this class, it was invaluable, so much so that the midwife even commented afterwards on how calm and relaxed I was.

And finally, onto Carmel and her reflexology. I had 4 sessions with her near the end of my pregnancy and they were unbelievable. So relaxing, especially when teamed with my hypnobirthing CD…

I am so glad to have found this power house mother and daughter team! They are truly amazing.. Roisin Dempsey 7th Sept ’17

iStock_000017520369_ExtraSmallI have been a student at Carmel’s Yoga Class for over one year now. Her classes are a joy to attend as she covers a new theme weekly and also focuses on the body’s chakra system. Her classes offer a delightful mix of rejuvenation, balance, relaxation and healing. Carmel is a master in the art of teaching Yoga, and truly embodies what yoga is on all levels integrating the Body, Mind and Spirit. We are truly blessed to have such a delightful Yoga teacher like Carmel in our community. Wednesday is now my favorite day of the week, as I look forward to enjoying an inspiring Yoga Class with Carmel.

Just a quick note to thank you for the baby massage classes.  I had no idea how much myself and my baby would enjoy them.  Each week we both looked forward to the classes and we always floated out of them.  It is an amazing way to bond with your baby, and just to take an hour out of the madness was so good for both of us.  My little boy always sleeps really well after his massages and is much calmer on the days that he gets massaged.  As a first time mum I cannot say enough good things about your class.  I feel that I have connected with my baby on a whole new level after your classes and cannot thank you enough for teaching me that.  Cant wait for the mum and baby yoga.

 Carmel is one of the most amazing yoga instructors I’ve ever had.

Her knowledge of the anatomy and spiritual body is second to none.

Carmel brings a light heartiest to each class,so even though a class may be challenging it is never torturous.

After each class with Carmel I always feel I’ve had a work out for the mind,body and soul.

 I have been a student of Carmel for the past several years and I have benefited enormously from her teaching. As a result I return to her classes again and again and have discovered in myself, under her guidance, a great passion for yoga and also for other associated disciplines and practices.

 

Carmel is a dedicated proponent of Hatha Yoga. Her approach is a holistic one and she encourages her students to aim for balance and harmony in mind, body and spirit. Her philosophy centers on the idea that yoga is a way of life and this is at the heart of her teaching strategy. Her qualifications are impressive and she is constantly honing her expertise and adding to her range of skills. Her teaching style is practical, gentle and calm. However, she is also extremely kind and compassionate and so is much beloved and respected by her students as we see her not just as a teacher and mentor but often also as a friend and advisor.

Carmel is an outstanding exponent of the discipline of yoga. As an experienced teacher she promotes a friendly and relaxed environment in which to practice and she is especially gifted at managing groups of students with differing levels of experience and physical ability. She encourages us all to aim for a high level of proficiency but stresses that this should be achieved gradually and according to ability.

This sensitivity to individual needs is undoubtedly one of her greatest attributes as a teacher and is fundamental to her success in creating very harmonious and relaxed surroundings in which to learn and progress.

She has a warm and generous personality and a lovely sense of humour which adds that little bit of ‘fun’ to all her interactions.

I have attended Carmel’s yoga class for several years. It is a class 
of mixed abilities and ages. As a more mature member, I enjoy Carmel’s
method of encouraging all of us to participate fully. This helps us to
achieve much more than we thought possible. The class is very diverse,
full of ideas to aid our progress and always fun. Best of all, our
relaxation and meditation is out of this world.

Namaste,
