Yasodhara Yoga Workshops in Cork


Maureen McLaughlin is a keen practitioner of yoga who first discovered a particular interest in Dream Yoga from Swami Radha’s book, Realities of the Dreaming Mind. Maureen took the Yoga Development Course at Yasodhara Ashram at the beginning of 2017, and brought Yasodhara Yoga to Cork when she returned home that summer.









Maureen McLaughlin opened the bar, called ‘Maureen’s’ in Mulgrave Road in October 2018. Her goal is to create a relaxing environment, and especially to make her bar a safe space for women. It has already provided the venue for Yasodhara Yoga workshops led by Swami Sukhananda during her visit in December 2018.

Sign up with Maureen and come along for a journey of self-exploration and discovery!



Are we living in one world- the world in which we walk with our feet? Or do we live in another world- a world of thought and dream? Which is real? When does life become a reality and when is just another dream?… Our dreams are our own creations, and as we study them we learn our personal language of the unconscious. Swami Sivananda Radha
