In case you missed the fabulous news, Train Station on Munster Avenue in Galway's Westend have recently launched their Wellness Garden equipped with saunas, ice baths and a juice bar. Sinéad McKiernan isn't just the lovely friendly face you'll see behind the counter when you enter, she is also an experienced Yogi and Pilates Instructor who will be running sessions from Train Station as well as various pop-up events and retreats throughout the year. Discover Sinéad's story here...

A yogi with years of experience, Sinéad taught Yoga by the Sea classes on Salthill Beach (sometimes to over 100 people!), but the practice has had a profound effect on life off the mat too. "I started teaching Yoga in Galway in 2015 after training in India. I had suffered from severe anxiety and panic disorder for a few years prior and found Yoga & breathwork to be an amazing therapy. It actually began to enhance my whole life, not just my mental health. Studying and teaching well-being became my passion, I continued to train in many styles of Yoga, Breathwork, Fitness, Pilates, Qi Gong, Meditation & Nutrition. I have taught classes and retreats, and given well-being talks in Galway and abroad for the last 9 years."

Sinéad McKiernan dived head-on into the world of wellness with extreme gusto, and it has been repaying her with exciting opportunities ever since; "I opened my Move & Breathe studio in Moycullen in January 2022 and hosted lots of teachers and events there before moving back to the city to manage the Wellness Garden in The Train Station Gym this Spring. The Wellness Garden is part of the gym, you can drop into classes or you can just come and use the sauna and ice baths and stay for a coffee and a chat afterwards. The gym is one of the best communities in Galway; everyone is welcome, all walks of life!"
