Yoga enchanted me from our first encounter. A friend invited me along to a class she was attending, and I emerged wide-eyed with this new discovery. Physically challenging, mentally engaging, bringing instant awareness by paying attention to the breath. And this was real me-time - yoga is not competitive, but for personal development only. No need to perform, compete, or care at all about what others were doing. Only the teacher's guidance mattered.
I was convinced of the far-reaching benefits of practicing this holistic system, and wanted to share it with others, so qualified to teach hatha yoga in 2000.
I qualified to teach children through Yoga Therapy Ireland, and use the power of story to explore emotions, mindfulness, and relaxation.
Our summer CPD course for primary school teachers, Natural Connections, is delivered in the organic garden and yurt at Ballin Temple. We offer July and August dates.
The unique Yoga & Sleep Retreat at Lisnavagh, Co. Carlow answers the simple need for good sleep. I've been leading the yoga programme since Emily launched it in 2010, and have seen the retreat grow steadily in popularity. The yoga programme is tailored for each group to provide an accessible and effective way to release tension from the body and mind. Emily's nutritious food, fresh air, open fireplaces and comfy beds do the rest!
Private lessons are available to those seeking help with specific issues, or in circumstances that prevented them joining a group class.
