I am an Irish artist, graduate of Dunlaoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Dublin, living in West Sussex in the South of England with my lovely family and two dogs, Honey and Teddy, who regularly join me in the art studio and during my yoga practises.
I first discovered yoga in my early 20’s, have been practising for over 25 years and hope to continue practising for the rest of my life.
Two things I love about yoga is the fact that you can practice it anytime, anywhere (all you need is the space for a big towel or mat), and that you can do it at any age, shape or state of fitness.
In short, it’s for everyone, at every stage of our lives.
A graduate of the Yogahaven Teacher Training course in Brighton, I specialise in the practice of Vinyasa Flow yoga, but like to incorporate some gentle Hatha yoga, relaxing breathing exercises and meditation in my classes.

In my downtime I very much enjoy cooking and gardening. During lock-down, my wonderful hubby built me several raised beds, a 3 bay composter and a fabulous potting bench, so when I'm not in the yoga and art studio I'm tending to my organic vegetable patch.
We're very lucky to have a holiday home in Épernay, the heart of Champagne in France. It's here that I run several retreats (Yoga and/or Art) in the summer months.
Here I am in the local indoor food market, choosing some lovely fresh French ingredients to try out a new dish.
Recently (thanks to my sister) I discovered something very simple and so incredibly important to help us all heal nature, with a different approach to gardening, and ensure the survival of the ecosystem that sustains so much life, including us humans…
It’s called ‘We Are The Ark’.
Quite simply, we are encouraged to let half our gardens (large, small or tiny) to go Wild. There are millions of reasons why we should do this and it’s so easy to do.
Every single one of us can help to heal the earth and combat climate change by doing nothing with half our land!
Let’s become Guardians not Gardeners!
