My first experience of yoga was in the early 90's and falls somewhere between the realm of amusement and humiliation. I was about 25 years old, a runner and cyclist and like most of people, I initially went to yoga to become more flexible. As an athlete I was result driven and competitive and as yoga encompasses neither of these traits, I veritably suffered.

Back in those days Jane Fonda headbands and neon lycra were compulsory, and as a dedicated fashionista, my leggings clashed with the linen-clad yogi-hippies who remained oblivious to my pain as they quietly breathed and effortlessly stood on their heads. I'm glad I kept on going back because that little deviation from my norm eventually led to some amazing life changes and I became a teacher of yoga.

Going back a little further, I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1987 and some years later I was Operations Manager in a busy Social Work department. Yoga and fitness helped me to manage my stress. In the summer of 1999, a conversation over a pizza and a beer brought about an incredible life change that wasn't exactly planned.  I changed my career and moved to Amsterdam. I taught yoga and fitness classes, designed in-house training and education programmes for a chain of gyms and eventually went on to open Amstel Yoga Lounge.

In 2012, I relocated to Dublin. I'm a yoga teacher, a writer and a Be Activated -Neuromuscular Activation Practitioner and I truly love my work.
