An experienced Yoga Instructor, my goal is to help your body and mind connect. Situated in the Dublin area, I incorporate a variety of traditional practices in movement, breath, & meditation to help each student practice their own unique form of yoga.
Yoga has long been a part of my life. Mum taught Yoga to us as kids & since then, it's been a source of comfort, strength & peace to me. From college days to a career in Financial Services to seeking refuge on my mat to help ease the side- & after-effects of cancer treatment & beyond.
A qualified E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher (Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa & Accessible Yoga), I have studied & practiced with many amazing teachers over the years, including Amy Ippoliti, Donna Farhi, Nischala Joy Devi, Jivana Heyman, John Scott, Shandor Remete, James Higgins & many many more. I have & continue to teach Corporate/Workplace Yoga, Yoga for Runners/Athletes, Yoga Through Cancer Treatment, Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Accessible Yoga in the CommUNITY (Community Spaces & Gyms & Schools), Outdoor Yoga, Online Yoga, Private Yoga & more. I also have taught several fund-raising classes & workshops over the years, for amazing charities like Dublin Simon Community, the Irish Cancer Society, Barretstown, ARC Cancer Support, Women's Aid & more & continue to do so.
EveryDay Yoga focuses on the importance of our breath & mindful movement; cultivating a truer awareness about how we are feeling & where we are now in our lives & practice. Building our strength & enhancing mobility, relaxing & unwinding; feeling part of a community & having fun are of major importance too.
I have found Yoga so great for cross-training too. I’ve run 3 marathons (have trained for 7, long story!) & I also love cycling & hiking. Walking the full 888km Camino de Santiago in 2014, that little bit of Yoga each day along 'The Way' greatly eased the aches & pains of that odyssey. Yoga helps us recover from hard training sessions, it strengthens our core & other key muscles that we need to move comfortably & efficiently. Yoga also helps improve our balance (proprioception adaptation) & our breathing - vital for all athletes.
I also have taught adaptive Yoga at two cancer support centres for several years now. Please get in touch if you’d like more information on those specific classes. I also am qualified to teach Accessible Yoga & love being able to share Yoga's many benefits - Yoga is for ALL of us.
Yoga can bring us peace & calm, a deep abiding source of wellbeing, even amongst the turbulence, tests & trials of modern life. If we can develop a regular practice, adapting & practising to suit our lives, then we are better able, on & off the mat, to live lives with enhanced self-awareness, with a stronger sense of connection to our own unique mind-body 'balance', & to manage our stress & to live with more ease.
I truly believe that Yoga is an ‘everyday’ kind of practice - something attainable to us all, whether that is on a mat, in a chair, at a desk, in a wheelchair, in a bed, outside in the fresh air, inside, online, alone or with others. Try EveryDay Yoga 🙏🏽.
