Testimonials

 

Michelle McDonnell

HR Generalist, Leinster Rugby.

"As a HR professional with an interest in health and wellbeing for the workforce and personally, I encouraged staff to sign up to Laura’s 8-week corporate yoga and mindfulness program.

What I really enjoy about the sessions is that the focus is different each week which keeps it exciting as you are trying new poses and learning different breathing and mindfulness techniques too.

I have been to various yoga classes over the past 10 years through gyms memberships and yoga programs but I have no hesitation in saying Laura is the best yoga teacher I have come across.

 

Her passion of yoga really shines through and her explanation of the poses/moves and personal attention she gives is excellent. Laura’s encouragement motivates you to push past your comfort zone leaving you feeling energised and proud of your achievement within the session. 
From a physical point of view the benefits have been definitely been noticeable, personally each session has left my body feeling stretched, open and strong! I even think I’ve toned up and lost a few pounds :- )

I would highly recommend Laura’s program and hope to continue our corporate yoga journey together!"

Rosie Dignam

HR Generalist, Digit Game Studios

"When we were deciding who to use for our corporate yoga we reached out to 5/6 companies, Irish Yoga Girl stood out from the start and didn't fail to impress for the duration of our courses. The classes are a really nice balance between mindfulness and movement, each week can be as challenging or relaxing as you want it to be. Laura's instruction is clear and easy to follow and she really gave us the confidence to try poses that seemed impossible. The whole team are really happy with the course and would highly recommend Irish Yoga Girl to everyone."

David Rowland

Marketing Manager, Effective Software

"The Effective Software team found it an absolute pleasure working with Irish Yoga Girl over the course of eight weeks at the Effective Software headquarters in Portobello, Dublin.

 

Effective Software is a growing start-up which can often-times require long and stressful days in the office after which we won’t always make it to the gym or other fitness programs. Having the yoga class in the office saved us time but most importantly allowed us to “shut off” at the end of the working day in order to focus on ourselves through brief mindfulness training at the beginning of each class. Laura also maintained absolute professionalism while often times having to work around our busy schedules.

 

Laura’s course is both challenging and rewarding which encompassed a mixture of starter and intermediate yoga positions. Her ability to gauge our skill in the practice was surely one of the strong points along with her guidance and immensely positive influence. After the eight-week course had finished, several of Effective’s staff are now enrolled in yoga courses and some specifically with Laura’s Saturday class as well.

 

Effective Software will surely look to book another course with Laura in the coming months and years and we look forward to having her back."

Caoimhe Mc Kenna

Sales Manager, Google.

"We had the pleasure of having Laura Farrington facilitate a yoga and meditation session with Google employees where the feedback has been really positive. Prior to the session, Laura was very professional in listening to our needs for the afternoon and customised the session to suit those who attended. The Google team were able to switch off from the daily demands of their role and really relax during the session. We are hoping that Laura returns to Google again in the new year." 

Lisa Synott

Marketing Executive, Carzone

"Laura came in to the Carzone office to run a yoga & mindfulness session in celebration of International Yoga Day. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session, the feedback was brilliant. So much so that we are looking at running a weekly course with Laura. She is such a brilliant instructor, ensuring to give personal attention to each and every person in the class, ensuring everyone was pushing themselves out of their comfort zone and getting the most out of the class. The hour was over before we knew it, and everyone left feeling relaxed, stretched and energised for the upcoming week. I’m really look forward to the next session 😊"

Siobhán Moloney,

Stuctural Engineer, O Connor-Sutton-Cronin

"The staff at OCSC have really immersed themselves in the yoga culture thanks to our instructor Laura. She is a very engaging, hands-on teacher, who really challenges a class and caters for all fitness levels. The progression of the class is great and Laura is always coming up with new and interesting ways to challenge the class. Corporate yoga is a great way to de-stress from work, take some time out of the day to concentrate on yourself and to stretch out after sitting at a desk all day. We have hired Laura for 3 yoga courses so far and will definitely be signing on to work with her in the future again.”

Charlotte Callaghan

Talent Coordinator, Riot Game Studios, Dublin.

"Since the first class Laura has been an amazing yoga instructor. Her classes are challenging and motivating. For me personally, I joined a complete newb to yoga, five months on I have a genuine understanding and appreciation for yoga as both a fitness and meditation tool. Laura's classes perfectly compliment my existing training and I look forward to them every week. I am stronger and more flexible than I ever thought I could be and I owe so much of that to Laura knowing when to push us, but also offering the modifications for when the peak pose is that little bit too challenging for my level (although I know Laura will get us there in time!). Other participants in the class who are more experienced than myself have described Laura as the best yoga teacher they've ever had, and I don't doubt it!

 

Having Laura onsite in our office once a week is so valuable, it's so important to be able to take a hour out of a busy and sometimes stressful schedule to refocus. Laura's approach to yoga makes it easy for both beginners and experienced participants to enjoy and benefit from the class, which is great for an office setting as there is a mixed ability. We're looking forward to continuing to work with Laura and growing the class. "

Katie Collins

Senior HR Coordinator, Regeneron

"George and the team at Umbrella Wellness were absolutely fantastic to work with. I felt I was in great hands from the get go as they were so responsive and helpful while I was organising my wellness day at work. On the day we took a Self Defence Class which was great fun. The instructor Michal Borek was excellent, he had amazing energy and while giving us useful tips he also made the class lots of fun. The team at Umbrella Wellness are professional, friendly, reliable and I would highly recommend using Umbrella Wellness when organising your Wellness Day at work"
