My exploration into the world of yoga began in Cork in 2011, it was a purely physical pursuit at first as I was looking for something to help develop and compliment my other passion of surfing. At the end of my first class, it was clear to me that there was much more depth to the practice beyond just physical benefits to be gained.
My connection to the practice deepened over the coming years. Attending a weekly class quickly manifested into practising daily if not twice a day. The practice was beginning to change who I was for the better, bringing me closer to a more authentic version of myself, rather than trying to make my self fit into socially acceptable norms and expectations.
In 2014 I travelled to India to take part in my first teacher training under the supreme guidance of Bharath Shetty. I started the course to purely deepen my practice and left knowing that I’ll devote the rest of my life to sharing the practice of yoga.
I’ve returned to India almost every year since 2014, completing my advanced teacher training and logging almost 1000 hours of certified training, study and practice. My style of teaching is rooted in traditional Hatha, influenced by my teacher’s playful style of teaching I guide students towards creating freedom in mind and body without pressure or force.
I’m deeply devoted to my self-practice, continually studying and expanding my knowledge of yoga and all forms of functional movement. As a result, my teaching is in constant evolution, leading to creative and engaging classes.
All are welcome in the classes I teach. One of the beautiful aspects of yoga is its adaptability to the individual, making it accessible to all.
I look forward to connecting with you soon, Namaste.
Founder and Teacher
Yoga, which means “union” or “harmony,” is both a philosophical system and science whose goal is the attainment of self-awareness.
With its beginnings enshrouded in the prehistory of India, evidence of yoga practices has been found in the Indus Valley civilization of 2,000-4,000 B.C.E. Although ancient, yoga is not outdated. It has value for the modern world. Hatha yoga offers us the opportunity to deepen our self-understanding through physical movement, breathing, and meditation.
There are many different styles of yoga. Some styles are fast-paced and vigorous while others are very gentle and slow-moving. All of the styles of yoga have benefits, so evaluating your individual needs and personality type will help point you in the right direction.
