Thursday | ONE - TO - ONE


I am passionate about making yoga available to everyone, and I believe that whether you are a serious athlete or a “groovy granny”, whether you have limited mobility or superhuman strength - the beauty of yoga is that it is a personal journey. So, what you can't do… is irrelevant. Everyone can become stronger, more flexible and enjoy more balance in their lives.

I have been practicing yoga since 1988 and I have a lifelong interest in the practice of meditation. I trained with Yoga Therapy Ireland, initially as a yoga teacher and later as a yoga therapist. To my husband’s dismay, I am continuing my lifelong journey of further learning. I was one of the first teachers in Ireland trained in Yin yoga, and recently qualified from the first iRest® teacher training in Ireland. I am currently undertaking a 500hr Advanced Teacher Training which traces how human movement is evolving and the inner blueprints to allow us move with ease, grace, poise, strength and balance.

Why not come and visit my studio where everyone is welcome; take time out for yourself to relax and regenerate your mind and body.

I came to Yoga after the birth of my second child. Finding life extremely hectic and busy I needed something to re-ignite my energy yet calm the mind. Yoga was my chosen path, and I trained for many happy years with Paula Mitten. I can truly say that yoga has given me a whole new perspective on life and on the world. My practice has helped me grow stronger and more flexible. Every day, yoga inspires me to live life more mindfully.

I completed my teacher training with Yoga Therapy Ireland. My teaching style is calming, non judgemental, bringing a spirit of playfulness and joy while also providing a space for the student to quietly connect to the their true authentic self. Students taking my classes will feel more energised, stronger feeling the hidden capability within them really shine. My students have told me that my classes improved their sleep quality immensely, their digestion improved, couples attributed their ability to conceive a baby on my flow class and those with a hectic busy life felt calmer. You may be a person with arthritis, a triathlete, a new mum wishing to tone up, a marathon runner, or a person with restricted movement… I am the teacher for you.

My interest in yoga began in the late 1990s. After finding a wonderful inspiring teacher, I began to practice regularly and my passion for yoga grew.

I began my own teacher training with Yoga Therapy Ireland in 2002 and graduated in 2004. I continued to teach and aim to inspire students to continue their own yoga journeys. I took a break from teaching for two years, enabling me to deepen my own practice. My approach to yoga is of a slow mindful practice, incorporating asanas, breathing techniques and simple meditations.

I believe in the healing power of yoga, its ability to assist in the healing of past trauma and hurts; to create space and stillness within ourselves to cope with the stresses of our external lives.


I am a Yoga Therapy Ireland (YTI) trained teacher with 18 years of practice.

I’ve continued my learning in yoga taking courses for yoga for sportspeople and numerous yin yoga & meditation trainings.

I have loved this practice with younger bones, through injuries & pregnancies. I believe in the power of this practice & it’s availability for every body at all stages in life.

Come to your yoga mat with an open mind and sense of fun, find your bodies breath, your joy in movement & peaceful relaxation.

Hi, I am a Primary School Teacher and a Yoga Therapy Ireland (YTI) trained Yoga teacher. I have over 15 years' experience of doing yoga.

I began teaching yoga to children and then trained as a Hatha Yoga teacher in 2015. I love working with children in this holistic way.

Since then, I have gone on to train in pregnancy yoga, mother-and-baby yoga, and yoga therapy. I love pregnancy yoga, I love getting to know the mothers-to-be and following them on their journey to birth.

No Weekly Classes at the moment, but, watch this space…..

Hi, I am Mary, and I love sharing yoga with everyone, Yoga is for Everyone.

When I started doing Yoga I was afraid (because I'm no spring Chicken). I thought you had to be so flexible, so fit, so young, etc., and felt I would never be able for it.

I decided to try it once and I found my experience AMAZING so much so that I kept going back and back for more. My training in Vinyasa Yoga has taught me how to build a relationship with my body and to flow gently on the mat using my breath as my greatest gift. Combining this with meditation makes this a very peaceful experience. If you would like to give your body and mind a gift this is the class for you
