Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre Gives Back To Cork!

All our team get great satisfaction from helping others through yoga and making a difference in the local community. Part of the tradition of yoga in India is to give back which is called Seva so giving back to the community here in Cork is in line with our lineage and company values.

To date we have raised over €78,000 for our charity partners through our corporate social responsibility initiatives. Our biggest charity event is Yoga in the Park which is a donation based outdoor yoga class taking place every Saturday morning over the summer months. Hundreds of people join us on their mats each weekend in Fitzgerald’s Park to raise funds for Cork Simon Community and the Regional Park Ballincollig to raise funds for Pieta House. Classes run from June to mid-September from 10:00-11:15am in Fitzgerald’s Park and from 10:15-11:30am in the Regional Park Ballincollig.

Attendees give a minimum donation of €5 which goes directly to charity. Yoga in the Park has raised over €76,000 for our charity partners thanks to the generosity of the people of Cork and our amazing team.

We have run workshops and classes at our studio for people in need, taken party in challenge events for charity and every Christmas we organise a Giving Tree to collect gifts for children living in Direct Provision. Thanks to all our clients for stretching their hearts and supporting us with all our fundraising efforts.
