Martina Cunningham (086 888 5823)

Martina teaches Ashtanga Yoga, which is dynamic and aerobic. It is 95% physical serving as a path to health, flexibility, strength and balance through concentration. It strengthens, tones, improves posture, and releases tension. Ashtanga yoga is like a great massage for the body. Martina has been practising yoga since 1988. She trained with Larry Schultz in San Francisco in 1999 and completed her second teacher training with YTTC in 2004.

Martina has taught in San Francisco and Cork for the last ten years and more recently with the Munster Rugby team. As the first person to introduce this form of Yoga to Cork Martina has taught many students and through her encouragement they have now gone on to become established teachers themselves. She believes one of the most important aspects of yoga and health is the ability to stay in the “moment” as much as possible.


“Martina’s yoga class is like an oasis of peace sitting in the middle of my week. No matter what is happening in life, all of my strength comes from my yoga class.”

“Martina’s Ashtanga yoga class is a gentle flow of energetic movements which reminds you of the importance of balance in your body. Her weekly class allows me an important time to return to myself.”

“Martina is encouraging and consistent in her teaching without ever pushing me to an extent beyond what is possible for me to reach at a particular time. She teaches Ashtanga in a way that is gentle and energetic at the same time.”
