Hello! My name is Carol Murphy and I am a yoga teacher that has explored and taught many aspects of Yoga for over 27 years (more than half my life). After 10 years of teaching Iyengar and Ashtanga classes as my full-time profession, I started Green Lotus Yoga teacher training school (2006) and have been training yoga teachers from Ireland and internationally ever since. 

I have trained over 1000 teachers on my Progressive Vinyasa 200 hr Training, which was my first offering. This training is still running annually and gets better every year! My love for alignment-based Vinyasa has never wavered and I continue to feel inspired to practice and teach this creative, holistic and spiritual, ever-evolving practice.

I have always been interested in the holistic and therapeutic side of yoga. In 2017, I trained as a neuromuscular therapist. During this training, I learned a lot about fascia, the nervous system, and general anatomy. I used my new anatomy knowledge to write a book Align that connects yoga anatomy and alignment, which I hope to publish later this year.  At this time, I also became very interested in Functional Mobility to support my neuromuscular therapy worked and trained as a FRC® Mobility Specialist (FRCms). In 2018 I created a 300 hr Yoga Therapeutic Yoga Training and have been teaching it annually ever since. In 2022, I went back to school to do an IAYT 800 hr Yoga Therapy Training with Soul of Yoga in the U.S.  This allowed me to deepen my knowledge of Ayurveda, Somatics, Trauma Sensitive Yoga for Mental Health, Yoga for Addiction, iRest for PTSD, Subtle Anatomy, Pranayama, Meditation and more, with world renown Yoga Therapists and medical health experts. Additionally, I have studied Yin Yoga with Josh Summers (and led trainings with Josh), TCM and Women’s Health with Yoga Medicine, Tantra, and Kundalini Trance Dance.

Before the Pandemic, I traveled a lot with my work, teaching, and training teachers in London, California, India, South Africa, Morocco, and Spain. Since lockdowns, I have finally rooted with my husband and 6 furries in the Burren National Park, and have opened a local yoga studio, Yogamoves, to anchor my trainings. Since then, I have also created my own online platform and am dedicated to creating more online offerings. At present, all of my offerings are hybrid, so we can work together in person or online!
