I’m a qualified 450hr Yoga Alliance teacher. I completed my 250hr with the Elbowroom in May 2016 & further 200hr advanced training with Michael James Wong of Krama Yoga in 2023. I also acquired my foundation & mindfulness yin training with Josh Summers in 2017.
I’ve been a practitioner of different styles of yoga since 2008, Hatha, Ashtanga, vinyasa &
yin. I’ve been teaching weekly classes in studios around Dublin since 2016 & have acquired approximately to date 3000 hrs of teaching. I consider myself a student of yoga first & foremost. I feel privileged to be able to share my journey so far & enriching my teaching experience by learning from my students & peers, continuously taking workshops & further training with some great inspiring international teachers.
Since I was a child, I have always had a love of dance & movement, therefore I was initially drawn to the physical aspects of yoga. I loved how the practice could give you a sense of connection with breath, body & mind. I also felt I’d gotten a great workout! I soon realised there was so, so much more to yoga than physicality. I developed more of an interest in contemplative practices like meditation, spent some time on Vipassana courses & it is the mindfulness aspect I like to incorporate in my classes, especially for Yin.
Drawing inspiration from different styles of yoga, I love to create dynamic sequences that are challenging & FUN with a focus on breath, safe alignment, mindfulness & hope to inspire others on their yoga journey.


I believe yoga is for absolutely everyBody.
Hope to see you on the mat soon!
