Since I started yoga in 1998 it’s hard to recall one week where I haven’t practised or gone to a yoga class. Over the years, my yoga journey has led me to some amazing teachers and masters of Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Yin Yoga, Anusara Yoga and Jivakmukti Yoga. In 2008 I completed my first training with the Yoga Therapy and Training Centre in Dublin, Ireland. In 2012, I completed 200 hours with Its Yoga International and for the first time in years, I had found a training that met all my needs and requirements and gave me the confidence to teach what I practice and practice what I teach. I have completed a further 280 hours training with Its Yoga completing two immersions, IYI 302 and IYI 501.
I have been teaching in Dublin since 2008 and currently teach the Rocket on Tuesday evenings in The Yoga Loft, Dublin City Centre.
My It's Yoga Inspiration
I do yoga to keep my body, mind and spirit healthy and flexible. After my training with Its Yoga in 2012, I found a practice that worked for me and made sense for my physical and emotional body. As I sit at a desk for on average 8 hours a day five days a week, when I practice yoga, I need to move. I need to unwind from the day and reconnect with my own centre. Its Yoga practices and the Rocket has given me the tools to play with a practice where I can stretch, twist, fold forward, backbend, go upside down and come out of my head and into my body.
My 200 hours training is the fundamental of my daily practice peppered regularly with the Rocket. I am not naturally flexible, but the Its Yoga system of modifying postures and flow has allowed me to progress in postures that I never believed I would experience. I am always amazed by how much learning and transformation lies within the three core Rocket sequences. When I practice and teach, I am always connected, not just to the lineage of the practice but also to the amazing community of teachers and yoga lovers that I have met through the trainings and shared practices with.
