I have studied and practiced yoga since 1994. I originally trained as an Iyengar teacher (introductory certificate obtained in 1998), but my practice and teaching have since been influenced by a number of other yoga styles, particularly ashtanga vinyasa and the Atma Vikasa style of Acharaya Venkatesh (from Mysore, India), who was my main teacher for a number of years.
My quest for a balanced practice led me early on to also study the teachings and practices of Buddhism, which I have found to complement and enrich my hatha yoga practice. I practice meditation daily and attends retreats in various Buddhist traditions.
My strong interest in breathwork has lead me to develop a safe and systematic approach to breathwork, drawing from classical pranayama and mindfulness Buddhist practices, both of which I have been studying for over 20 years with senior teachers from all over the world. I now regularly run Continuous Professional Development workshops in breathwork for yoga teachers.
I am a co-founder of Macalla Farm (Clare Island Retreat Centre) one of Ireland first yoga retreat centre, regularly running quality yoga and meditaion retreats since 2001. I am certified by the Independent Yoga Network as a senior (1000 hours) teacher and have taught more than 5000 hours, on residential retreats, workshops and occasionnaly on weekly classes.
