we create our own narratives. we gather what we love, the inevitable mistakes that we make and what we learn into our life’s story
Growing up on the west coast of Ireland, I was never far from the sound of the Atlantic ocean. At eighteen I left home to work and study in London. In the early 90’s I took time out and spent a wonderful year in Paris studying french at La Sorbonne.
Maybe the sea called me back because as I reached 40, I changed direction and moved to North Wales. I now live with my husband and daughters, looking toward mountains and hearing the sound of the sea once more. It feels like coming home.
I’ve created a beautiful place to work and learn. Here I awaken possibilities for people where I teach Yoga and personal awareness. Sharing what works can make a real difference in individual lives. Yoga is just the start of it. How do we create space and change patterns in our lives? How do we learn or re-learn to listen to our bodies and our intuition?
To take these steps requires time to reflect and courage to make the changes that we know are necessary.
Practicing Yoga regularly has changed my approach to life. I don’t want to rush around as I used to. I am more content in my skin that ever.

small really is beautiful because big impact comes from deceptively small changes
we create ripples of change
here is a journey
by taking it you will make time and space for yourself
your balance, strength and flexibility will improve with this regular practice of gentle stretching
you will increase your passion for life, move with grace and look younger
you will become emotionally calmer, learning to respond rather than react
I remember how it felt not being able to stretch or bend when I first started yoga. This keeps me in touch with how my students may be feeling.
I encourage people to listen to their body and work within it’s limitations, whatever their age, whatever their fitness level.
sometimes if you want something to exist you have to make it yourself
What nudge do you need to make changes in your life?
I love the synchronicity of dilemmas. The moment when we arrive at a brick wall, a cul de sac in our lives, and don’t know which way to turn. Is this a pattern of meaningful coincidences? Call them what we will, these feelings seem to have a ‘memory’, a way of appearing and re-appearing.
Have you noticed that some doubts arrive at roughly the same time each year, as if triggered by the light, or the season, or by the frenetic activity of the birds and nature at her busiest?
What throws us into panic as we question our self motivation or lack of it? The ‘what now or what next?’ questions. Hopefully each year we get more clarity, more wisdom, as we start really listening to the nudge that we will eventually act upon.
The very fact that we notice a pattern shows in itself our growing awareness. Where do you want to be this time next year or in two years time? How do you approach making lasting changes in your life? My friend always says, "how do you eat an elephant?" It's quite simple...little by little.
