I started my yoga, healing and learning journey when I came to Ireland in 2007. Having worked in a very stressful work environment I quickly realized that there must be more to life than a stressful work life. That’s when I discovered Ashtanga Yoga and instantly fell in love with the dynamic practice. For me Ashtanga is the perfect tool to quieten my mind, while also allowing me to be present. Since finding my long-term teacher Matthew Sweeney I have started to incorporate the gentler Moon Sequence into my practice and teachings which I feel is a very good balance to the dynamic Ashtanga Practice. In my private yoga classes I draw on my knowledge to create sequences that suits the individual person and their body.
Massage for me was the logical step after teaching yoga for so many years and wanting a hands on, holistic and deep approach to massage and healing. Similar to the yoga practice, the first time I was introduced to Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage, I instantly knew I was deeply connected to this nurturing and healing practice. It was like I was called to do it. I’m blessed to have found great teachers, including a native Hawaiian practitioner who continuously teach me that the body is a reflection of the subconscious and all aspects of it are seen as one. Consequently the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are all part of the whole self – when healing is effected on one level, all levels are affected. No massage is ever the same incorporating rhythmic movements and long forearm strokes that soothe from light to deep to realign the body bringing immediate relief with lasting benefits to areas of concern.
I love to connect with people on different levels and teaching yoga and giving Lomi Lomi Healings allow me to do exactly that.
If you feel called to receive a Lomi Lomi healing or working with me on your yoga practice I would love to hear from you and be part of your healing journey.
