So grab a hot flask of tea or coffee, wrap up and get active. There are an abundance of great places around Dublin that are scenic, spacious and relaxing. Any space is a platform to practice yoga but you don’t want to be doing it on Grafton Street so finding the right area which will enhance your practice is very important.

So here are YogaHub’s 6 best places in Dublin to practice Yoga- a short list of beautiful spots that are on your doorstep.

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
