YOGAMOVES is in a small town on the west of Ireland called Gort. It lies between Galway, Clare and Limerick and is close to Shannon airport for international students. One of the wonderful things about Gort is that is lies at the edge of the Burren, one of the most incredible places on the planet, famous for its flowers and fauna. Gort also has some great restaurants and cafes, our favourite being the Gallery Cafe across the road in the square. Accommodation options tend to be cheaper here than in the surrounding bigger cities and we get away with free parking. 

For people travelling, there are a few accommodation options.

          O Sullivan’s Hotel is just cross the road form the studio in the main square in Gort

The Lady Gregory this is a very traditional Irish hotel.  Offering 87 ensuite comfortable bedrooms.  There is a very nice restaurant and also a Spa & Pool.  Room rate varies depending on the time of year and length of stay.

Woodley Bnb– a cheap and cheerful up the road, prices as low as €25 per night.

There is also Air BnB options in or close to the town. Air BnB offer private rooms in homes or entire houses that could be shared. We can help group people together for Air BnB. Just let us know you are interested in this option and we can help advise.

Galway City to Gort 

There is a regular bus service running from Galway, Eyre Square Bus station to Gort.  It takes 40 minutes.  So if you decide to stay in Galway City you could commute to your training.

By Air 

There are 3 main airports in Ireland that would offer International services from most destinations. Dublin Airport would be the largest and has a more regular international service than Shannon or Cork.

Shannon Airport – This is the closest Airport to Gort.  It has a very good direct bus service that will take approximately 1 hour.  

Dublin Airport – 3.5hrs away from Gort.  With the option of bus or train links.  Trains are from Hueston Station in the centre of Dublin City. They operate a direct service to Gort with a journey time of 3 hours.

Cork Airport – the furthest from Gort.  It does however run a good bus service but would take 4 hours

Car Hire or Taxi

If you do not wish to travel independently then you could consider either renting a car or hiring a private taxi.  Where possible we would see if others were arriving around the same time and look at car pooling or sharing a taxi to help with the cost.  Prices would vary depending on your pick up location.  

By Road

There is a good road network across Ireland. Gort would be close to Galway, which is linked to motorways.  Google maps offers the best route service to Gort

TTC Full Fees Refund :

If a student has to pull out of the course for any reason and their full course fees are paid, tuition fees can be transferred to another course at any time within the next 3 years. If there are any prices changes in this time for either the venue or Green Lotus tuition fees, then prices may slightly change to adapt to new fees.

We ask students to refrain from the following on your trainings :

Students should act courteously towards each other, to all teachers and to the members of the staff. Antisocial behaviour or communication may result in us having to ask you to leave the training without compensation or refund. We are more than happy to listen to any possible grievances if they are communicated consciously and peacefully.

Green Lotus Yoga sometimes takes pictures/videos in the classroom and share these on social media platforms. Most of these pictures and videos are general and not targeting particular students and always try to be tasteful and respectful to students.  Students will be offered the opportunity to stand out of pictures and videos. If you do not request permission to stay out of pictures and videos, GLY reserves the right to share such on social media platforms or other platforms such as the GLY website.

Green Lotus Yoga reserves the right to pass on student contact details to Yoga Alliance Professionals so that they can invite you to register with them as Trainees and Teachers.


We would like our students to know that if a student has a complaint on the TTC, we would like to hear about it. !  We believe that the guidelines for making complaints are outlined below will create a sense of safety in the group for both teachers and students, and help you complete the TTC successfully.

How to make a complaint

1) Speak to your trainer and arrange to discuss when convenient; your trainer will arrange to meet with you at a break-time or after class. We anticipate that any conflict should be able to be resolved at this stage; however in the unlikely event that it is not, we will arrange another discussion with you or you can try to resolve the issue by following stage two.

2)  Outline the details of your complaint by email and send it carol@greenlotusyoga.com who will investigate the complaint and email you back.

3) If you are not satisfied with the final response to your complaint then you can email  Yoga Alliance Professionals (U.K) and ask for their support.
