My journey so far..

I started my yoga journey around 2013 when I was living in Perth, Western Australia. I went to my first class, like many others, looking for a new type of physical exercise. I was surprised to find I couldn’t do many of the poses and I could not believe how stiff my body was and how little balance I had. I went to the gym regularly but I was really surprised that I found yoga physically very challenging. But I quickly saw the benefits. I noticed my body ease into the poses after some practice and felt myself build strength and flexibility and I loved this change I was going through. I also noticed it was one of the only ways I could get my overactive “monkey mind” to slow down. Soon I was practicing 4 / 5 times a week, I was fortunate enough to have amazing teachers at The Yoga Vine in Perth who taught me so much and helped me deepen my journey and I found myself wanting to learn more about the asanas, anatomy, the history, philosophy, meditation and pranayama so I decided to do my teacher training.

I did my 200 hour yoga teacher training In Koh Lanta in Thailand with Dr Gaurav Malik - Ashtak yoga school in 2017. It was an intense, physically and emotionally challenging 4 weeks but an amazing opportunity to immerse myself in the practice and learn everything Gaurav had to teach us. I learned more than I ever thought I would and couldn’t wait to continue my journey and learning.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to practice with and learn from some amazing teachers in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Ireland. I have practiced many different types of yoga including Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Yin and Hot yoga.

I now teach in Abbeystrewery Hall, Bridge Street, Skibbereen, Cahergh Community Hall, Clonakilty Community Center and also offer private classes. I feel so fortunate to be able to share the things I have learned over the years with people and also continue my learning through my own practice, teaching, completing more trainings and reading. I believe you are forever a student, in every aspect of life and there is so much to learn. I have a huge interest in wellness in general – fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, self-care and essential oils and I am constantly furthering my learning.
