Located in the Ballyraine Campus, the club is a community space where people can come to connect and be creative together. It was officially opened to the public last weekend by founder Rachel Tyrell, who threw a massive party with fun and festivities for all ages.

Rachel, who is a fully qualified yoga instructor for kids and adults, said, “I was delighted with the turnout, there were so many people who came out to support us. The atmosphere was great, with lots of smiling faces. I just want to thank everyone, from the people who put on the classes and the workshops, to all the vendors and everyone who attended – thanks for making it such a special day.”​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
