About Dara

Yoga Graphic



I teach private and group classes in both Face Yoga and Yoga & Somatics, from a small Yoga Studio In Glasnevin. Over the years I have taught yoga classes for Yoga Studios, Yoga Therapy Ireland, Dublin Institute of Technology, Trinity College Dublin, Secondary Schools, West Wood Club and The ICA.






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.


In 2013 I qualified as a Hanna Somatics Exercise Coach which blends in beautifully with the style of Yoga for Wellbeing that I now teach.


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 regularly as there is always more to learn and to grow from.
