Yoga was introduced to me in 1997 by a book given to me during my second pregnancy; I began doing a little bit every day and was amazed at how it felt so right for my body. Practicing yoga and pranayama (breath work) had a very positive impact on my pregnancy and the birth of my baby. I soon developed a self taught practice and then began attending weekly classes.
I then left yoga for some years but in 2004 my journey began again – this time half way up a mountain in West Cork with my then teacher and mentor Esther Ekhart (founder of EkhartYoga). Esther encouraged me to embark on a teacher training course which I completed in 2006; I began teaching four classes a week in Esther’s studio ‘The Boab Centre’.
After a while I did my second level and pre-natal teacher training with Yoga Alliance, and have just completed my Yin Yoga teacher training with Josh Summers. I regularly attend further training days and workshops to develop my practice and keep my teaching fresh and fun.
I am hugely fascinated by the human body and how it works. I get a great sense of satisfaction from seeing my students develop body awareness and learning to live and feel better in body, mind and spirit.
I love to share my passion for yoga with my students and aim to bring them to a place where they have their own daily practice and can really feel the many benefits of living in harmony with themselves.
