History

 

I attended my first yoga class in 1991 and it immediately struck a chord with me. In 1995 I qualified as a Hatha Yoga Instructor and began teaching. I then went on to study Anatomy & Physiology, Reflexology, Nutrition and Meditation.

 

I then became aware of the Yoga teachings passed down from Sri Krishnamacharya. Firstly Iyengar Yoga, then Ashtanga Yoga.

 

I qualified as an Ashtanga Yoga Instructor in 2002 and then went on to study Viniyoga, which I found invaluable during my pregnancies and in dealing with old injuries. I also dabble in other forms of yoga as I believe there is no one way to practice or teach Yoga. There is something valuable to be learned from all forms. Yoga is simply Yoga to me.

 

I have had the good fortune to study in Ireland, England and India with some of the world's top Yoga teachers and I continue to update my studies.
