From Mountain to Mat
Join me on an inspiring journey through the captivating realm of yoga, where I’ve dedicated over two decades to immerse myself in its transformative practice. It is with immense joy and a heart full of passion that I now extend my expertise as a devoted teacher.
Guided by the radiant light of yoga, my purpose is to share its transformative power with students of all levels. With a gentle spirit and unwavering commitment, I embrace the opportunity to guide newcomers along their yoga path, unveiling the hidden treasures of this ancient practice.
Within each class, we create a sacred space where bodies align, minds expand, and souls awaken. With clarity, precision, and a touch of whimsical humor, I invite joy and fun to dance freely in the hearts of my students. Together, we embark on a journey of self-discovery, igniting the spark of transformation and embracing the beauty of yoga.
Come, let us paint a vivid picture of possibility and embark on this enchanting yoga adventure together.
With Knowledge and Wisdom
Drawing inspiration from luminaries in my early days such as Betsy Downing, Debs Neubar, Noah Mazé, Noeleen Tyrrel, Darren Rhodes, Richard Miller and Kathleen Knipp, Jaye Martin as well as the profound teachings of Kashmir Shaivism.
Aligning all this with more recent learning from the wonderful Lisa Peterson who guided me on my journey into the somatic world . These deep reservoirs of wisdom have not only shaped my own practice but have become the guiding light for those I am privileged to guide . My dedication to the transformative power of yoga extends beyond the physical practice.
I am also a trained iRest Yoga Nidra Teacher with this advanced meditation practice, I bring the gift of deep relaxation, restful sleep, and increased resilience to those who seek balance in their lives. Through iRest, I help my students decrease hyper-vigilance, chronic pain, and symptoms of PTSD while nurturing self-efficacy and self-regulation.
Finally weaving all this together with the art of somatics, bodies find freedom, minds discover clarity, and souls awaken to a symphony of inner harmony, forever changing lives.
Two Friends, One Journey
In partnership with my friend and colleague, Christine Stewart, we have manifested a vision of love and learning in the form of The Catamatkara Yoga Teacher Training School. This sacred space allows us to nurture aspiring teachers, offering them Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance Professional certification 200-hour foundational training.
Our journey begins in the serene surroundings of Omagh and extends to the picturesque lands of Boyle in the Republic of Ireland. As a testament to our commitment to holistic growth, we also include a 40-hour retreat on the enchanting island of Inishbofin, where the raw beauty of nature becomes a backdrop for profound transformation.
Within the cozy embrace of The Bamboo Loft, my purpose-built yoga studio situated near Omagh, I orchestrate the dance of body, mind, and spirit. In this sanctuary, live and online yoga and meditation classes come to life, fostering connection and growth. Each student becomes part of a vibrant community, united by their shared quest for balance and self-discovery.
Mixing Magic and Adventure
Beyond the realm of yoga, my adventurous spirit finds solace in the untamed beauty of Northern Ireland’s mountains. Accompanied by my beloved dogs, I wander these rolling hills, finding solace and inspiration in nature’s embrace. In the summertime, my adventurous heart brings me on far flung rowing expeditions to remote corners of the Emerald Isle in a traditional skin boat called a Curragh. My great love of sea kayaking allows me to spend lots of time on the water during the summer, being in nature where I am most at ease . My greatest joy cascaded into my life when I became a grandmother in February 2022, an experience that fills my heart with boundless love and wonder.
So, come, join me on this awe-inspiring journey of yoga, where ancient wisdom intertwines with modern exploration, and the radiant light within each of us shines brighter than ever before. Together, let us embark on a transformative voyage that will uplift our souls, awaken our spirits, and cultivate a profound sense of joy and purpose in every breath we take.
