Yoga

My love of Yoga began over 20 years ago in Northern California. I took my first classes with Kali Ray of TriYoga in Santa Cruz. Later in New York I studied with David Life and Sharon Gannon of Jivamukti, and Mysore Ashtanga with Guy Donahaye. In Ireland, I had the opportunity to study with backbend extraordinaire Paddy McGrath. Other wonderful teachers through the years have included, Nancy Gilgoff, John Stirk, Diane Long, Eddie Stern, Mark Stephens, Shiva Rea and others. I am currently practicing Shadow Yoga under the tutelage of David Curtis and training to become a clinical somatics educator with Brian Siddhartha Ingle.

I am also a Pilates Educator. I apprenticed for 2 years with Miriam Rowlands of Physio South East to become a Pilates Instructor and Physiotherapy assistant. I teach Pilates mat and equipment classes and assist Physiotherapists with rehabilitation.

I teach Yoga to children, families, teens, adults, and chair assisted classes. I work with mental health professionals to provide Yoga classes for people who have an interest in Yoga classes but for different reasons need more support than an open level pubic class usually provides. I also work alongside Physiotherapists, and get advice on best physical practices of Yoga. My aims as a teacher are to give people new, accessible tools and practices that will help them slow down and enjoy their bodies.
