Meet The Team
Caroline Rouine O Connor
Originally from the west coast of Ireland, Caroline discovered yoga when she moved to New York. An avid exerciser, she loved running, boxing and cycling as tools to help quiet, soothe and slow down, but it was yoga that gave her exactly what she needed. While pregnant with her first child, when she couldn’t do her full physical routine as before, a friend suggested yoga. She hasn’t looked back since. Caroline completed her 200 hour training with YogaWorks and continued with their 300 hour professional program under the guidance of her beloved teachers Jodie Rufty and Jenny Aurthur. Loving exploring different modalities of movement in all fields and looking forward to bringing it to Reform club.
Caroline is a mother of two and loves teaching adults and children alike.
Tanya is a whole food chef currently residing in Co Clare. After many years in the corporate world, she went to Ballymaloe Cookery School in 2012 in order to take a new direction in life and follow her passion for good food.
On leaving Ballymaloe Tanya started up her own food business, The West Coast Food Company, concentrating on making chutneys and preserves. In 2016, she won a great taste award for her Sweet Chilli and Lemongrass sauce.
In 2014, Tanya joined the small team of chefs at The Cliffs of Moher Yoga Retreat in Co Clare. This role gave her a great opportunity to explore and develop her love for cooking healthy vegetarian food. The retreat centre had its own organic gardens and had a highly praised reputation for the meals that they produced for guests. During this time, Tanya also had the opportunity to cook on overseas retreats.
While at the Cliffs of Moher Retreat, Tanya continued to work with her West Coast Food Company brand. She developed a range of healthy vegetarian ready meals and snacks that were sold to health shops for retail.
In 2018, Tanya began work at Little Fox. A small cafe in Ennvstymon, Co Clare which attracted big attention for delivering flavoursome, colourful, exciting food using great ingredients from local suppliers. As the menu changed daily, Little Fox was a very exciting and creative experience and gave Tanya a great opportunity to work with some very talented chefs and develop her passion for good food further.
Tanya believes that eating well is paramount to our health and wellbeing so cooking healthy, flavourful and delicious meals using great ingredients is her simple food philosophy.
