I started to practice yoga in my 20’s as a way of combining meditation and movement, I experimented with lots of different styles & teachers while spending extending time in South East Asia & Nepal and on return to Ireland I found my teacher Pavara, Senior Iyengar Teacher & Buddhist order member in Dublin to practice with regularly. His gentle yet powerful style of teaching the Iyengar method truly supported me to go deep within myself & my practice and after 7 years of guidance, inspired me to to teach. I was initially drawn to the simplicity, power and attention to safe practice of Iyengar.
Having trained for 2 years as an Iyengar yoga teacher with Senior teacher Aisling Guirke, my yoga journey was only beginning to unfold & I immersed myself many different paths & traditions of Yoga including: Ashtanga, Restorative, yin, gentle, therapeutic, chair & somatic based practices. I continue to regularly attend training courses with senior teachers & I love to search far & wide to spend time with interesting people to learn & share with.
I am drawn to yoga of all traditions, believing that the essence of yoga practice comes from within and it is through this inner journey that we come to know ourselves and the world around us. – Bairbre
