If I'm really honest, the first time I ventured onto a yoga mat, my thoughts afterwards were 'what a load of crap!'  At the time I was working within the sports industry and busied myself most weekends participating in triathlons.  It was only a year later, tortured by a recurrent IT band injury, that I decided to try yoga again to give myself a weekly stretching session.

It started with one classs per week, then two, then three!  I discoverd that not only was my physical body improving but my mental state was also.  My father was very ill at the time and what I discovered was, once I was on my mat, moving into and holding unfamiliar shapes, my mind became distracted from all my worries and anxieties.  I was rewarded with some mental peace for that one hour.

This then lead to giving up my job to pursue a career in yoga.  I travelled to a remote part of Northern India where I studied the traditional form of Hatha Yoga under the guidence of highly accredited monks.  The experience that I obtained there will never leave me and is evident in my teachings today. 

Yoga has proved time and time again to be my crutch in the midst of adversity.  I love teaching it and helping people as much as I can.  I endeavour to keep my classes light heartened whilst maintaining my traditional teachings and finish every class with a guided relaxation.

I specialise in Yoga for adults and children. I am Yoga Alliance certified and hold an RYT200 certificate. I am also certified by Rainbow Kids Yoga to teach children and certified by the YTTC Ireland in pregnancy yoga.  In addition to these I hold certificates in children’s first aid, Barnardos child protection and The Irish Sports Council child protection.

I feel very lucky to get up in the morning and do what I love to do as my profession.  I am extremely thankful to all my students and grateful to all my teachers for helping and guiding me along this path we call life!
