I have practised Yoga since 2001 and trained as a teacher with the Yoga Therapy & Training Centre and the Yoga Room in Ireland. I continue to study to deepen my understanding of this discipline. I am honoured to share the little that I know with anybody who wishes to explore the wonderful gift of Yoga.
My background is in Teaching, I worked for many years in Training and Development, specializing in technologies applied to learning.
I came across Yoga back in 2001, as I was looking for a way to release tension and to do some gentle physical activity, I found a Yoga class held locally and decided to give it a try.
I knew immediately that was the right choice for me. The mindful movements, the attention paid to how a certain posture felt in the body, the practices to slow down a constant racing mind, it all provided an opportunity to create space and freedom in the physical body, by stretching and strengthening it, and a way to explore stillness and the quietening of the mind in a world in constant fluctuation and overall it gave me a better awareness.
The passion for Yoga grew as I developed a daily self-practice, in 2007 I decided to enrol in a teacher training programme with the YTTC, in Dublin. I got a 200-hour teacher diploma in 2008 and completed a 500-hour training programme with the Yoga Room in May 2013.
