About us

Navé Yoga’s teaching style is a Vinyasa Flow style of Hatha yoga. With this as the foundation of all of our classes, we teach Hatha Yoga, different levels of Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Yoga, Meditation Classes, Children’s Yoga and Pregnancy Yoga.  Personal yoga tuition, Corporate Yoga and yoga for sports teams are also available on request. Navé Yoga provides a range of yoga classes where you can practice in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment with a variety of flexible classes and qualified experienced yoga teachers to chose from, something for everyone. Navé Yoga holds regular workshops and retreats in Killarney and beyond, to enable you to deepen and further your yoga practice.

Yoga has been proven to assist with ailments such as obesity, diabetes, depression, and has also been proven to lower blood pressure and boost good cholesterol, release muscle and joint tension and stiffness. Yoga also helps you to get a better nights sleep!

Navé Yoga is run by Elaine and Adrian O’Donoghue with much input from their two young boys. Elaine began practising yoga in 2010 and quickly fell in love with the practice. In 2013 she completed her yoga teacher training (RYT200) in Brisbane. Elaine began teaching in September 2013 in various studios across Brisbane and also started her own small teaching business. Having realised the benefits of pregnancy yoga during her own pregnancy, Elaine then completed a certificate in prenatal and postnatal yoga and began teaching in these areas. Elaine completed her Children’s Yoga Teacher Training in the Elbow Room in Dublin in 2014 and in 2016 she completed her 500 hour TTC with the Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre in Cork under the guidance of Yogacharya Lalit Kumar.

Elaine continues her own daily yoga practice and is grateful for the benefits this brings to her life. She brings her knowledge and experience in the different areas of yoga to the people of Killarney and shares a passion that has invaluable benefits for the health and wellbeing of people of all ages.

    Adrian O'Donoghue

    Registered Yoga Teacher, RTY 200 (2015) Certified Yin Yoga Teacher (2017)

    Adrian began his yoga journey in Brisbane in 2012. Once he took his first yoga class he was hooked right away as he felt the amazing benefits for both his mind and body. Having a strong passion for sport, he was amazed to see how yoga could benefit and complement sports people and couldn’t believe he hadn’t found yoga before!

    His passion for yoga turned into a desire to teach yoga and he completed his teacher training in Cork in early 2015 and began teaching at Navé Yoga straight away.


    In November 2017, Adrian completed his Yin Yoga teacher training under the guidance of Josh Summers.

    Adrian teaches Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, and he also loves to teach strong flowing vinyasa classes. Adrian places a strong focus on alignment and the use of props where needed and firmly believes that yoga is for everyone.

      Rieleen Bn Uí Dhuinnín

      Certified Yoga Teacher RYT200

      Rieleen started practicing yoga at the age of 15. Initially practicing yoga as part of sports injury recovery, she soon started developing a greater interest in her practice and yoga became a part of her daily life.

      She went on to successfully complete her yoga teacher training in 2014/2015 with Yoga Diploma in Cork and has been teaching since.



      She is currently teaching adult and kids yoga in Macroom, and covers classes regularly at Navé Yoga.

        Brendan O'Toole

        Brendan attended one of Elaine’s classes at Nave Yoga in 2015 having no prior knowledge of the practice. It didn’t take long before the realisation that something powerful was at work here became apparent to him.

        Apart from the tremendous physical benefits he became more and more invested and fascinated by the introspection that the discipline promotes.He was introduced to Yin yoga by studio owner and mentor Adrian who encouraged him to deepen his practice by enrolling in a 200hr teacher training with the Josh Summers School of Yin Yoga.


        Brendan feels privileged to be now teaching at the studio that has become such an important part of his life. In yin yoga he acknowledges a deep synergy between mind and body and he places emphasis on functional alignment in poses to better suit everyone’s skeletal variation.

          Kara Fox

          Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance RYT 200

          Kara was gifted an introduction to the practice of yoga at an early age by her mentor in Nashville, Tennessee and has treasured this present ever since.

          The only constant for half her life, yoga has grounded Kara through many moves, an on-again, off-again love affair with home, (New York) long stints living abroad in South and Southeast Asia, and the dedication to her work as a photojournalist. Kara’s daily yoga practice brings her strength and heart and she is happy when she gets to share this with others.


          Kara has been a yogi for 17 years – teaching for 10. Kara is trained in both the Hatha and Iyengar tradition. In both personal practice and as a teacher, her classes seek to find balance between respecting the ancient wisdom of the yoga sutras while acknowledging that we live in a very changed world now. Yoga is all about balance. She respects this and strives to infuse this into each session.
