I trained in various yoga schools throughout Ireland and India for the past 25 years, qualifying as a yoga instructor in 2008 and as a fitness instructor with the University of Limerick in 2015. I studied Āyurveda with the American Institute of Vedic Studies and at the International Academy of Āyurveda in Pune, India.
I have always been passionate about movement, from freestyle movement in my early years to more formal training more recently.
My training and experience in coaching beginners to advanced yoga practitioners and teachers has helped me understand how different bodies tend to move and how this can be adjusted to suit, preventing injury and illness, making exercise more productive and supportive.
The Science of Movement
Vāyu is Sanskrit for the 'deity of life', breath and movement. Vāyu can be translated as wind or movement, Veda as knowledge or science. Vāyuveda can be translated as the 'science of movement'. The symbol used in the name is the alchemical symbol for wind,representing movement; of the body, breath and Prāṇa; the life force.
