Hello world!

Welcome to Stretch NI on The plan for this blog site is to provide more up-to-date information on the activities of Stretch NI and its founder, Victoria Cunningham-Downey. (That’s me with my dog Foxy below).

For those who don’t know, Stretch NI provides yoga and Pilates classes throughout the Southern area of Northern Ireland (all the way from Armagh to Belfast, basically). I also provide personal and professional development workshops such as stress management, meditation, chocolate meditation (a particular favourite of mine!) and teacher training activities where I have teamed up with some great tutors.

We are starting Pilates Teacher Training this year with a brand new 2 week Teacher Training Intensive in July which is suitable for everyone as well as a much shorter 2 weekend course starting in September for fitness instructors.

Then, in 2012, we are planning to begin Yoga Teacher Training which will take place one weekend a month over 12 months.

We are also gearing up for shorter weekend and day courses such as Pilates on the Ball (for Pilates trained people only) and Yoga for Children (for any adults with an interest in teaching non-competitive Stretch & Play activities to children aged between 2 and 12).

If you have any other areas of interest, just email us and we’ll see what we can do!
