After decades of martial arts, wrestling and fencing, I decided to take up yoga in ’95 after watching a demonstration by the late Derek Ireland. He and his then partner, Rhada, became my first teachers.
I started yoga just after the birth of my 3rd son, having never adhered to nor enjoyed any particular form of exercise and going through countless (mostly unused) gym memberships, aerobic classes, occasional runs – yoga transformed my mind, breathing, health, well being and my body…
I am passionate about yoga and how it can transform lives for the better. I have experienced the many benefits that a committed yoga practice can bring over the years.
I took my first yoga class at the very end of 2007 and I fell, hock, line and sinker in love! I had done various other forms of exercises throughout my life but usually tired of them after a while and found the physical gains would plateau.
I came to yoga in my late 40's, as a deeply unhappy and out of condition accountant. I had just had knee surgery and was looking for something to help with my flexibility. From my first class I was hooked. I've played football, rugby, Gaelic sports and been a gym bunny and nothing has been as formative as yoga.
Sceptically attended my first yoga class when I was 18. It was everything I thought yoga wasn’t: no chanting, no religion, no meditation – and all to a funky soundtrack. Luckily for me, the teacher of that first class was Mark. That was back in 2010, and I haven’t stopped practicing since.
