When yoga became part of my daily life in 2011, my well-being was at rock bottom. I was at a crisis point of anxiety and my body had taken the beating for it. Starting off exhausted and full of injuries and ailments, after just a few weeks practising yoga, I began to heal.
Within no time at all, I transformed into a stronger, healthier and happier version of myself and started my journey to become a 500RYT Hatha Yoga and Meditation teacher.My own experience made me fascinated with yoga’s ability to promote healing. I decided to train with Yoga Therapy Ireland on a 2 year, 500-hour course.
Throughout my studies, I developed a knowledge of the relationship between anatomy, asana and emotion. In-depth, practical mentorship with yoga therapists on the course taught me to be a responsive and inclusive teacher, ready to work with all ages, abilities and body types. As my practice deepened so did my spiritual experience of yoga which brought me all the way to India. During my trips, I have been honoured to learn mantra, pranayama and ritual in the Brahmin tradition across the Himalayas.
Whether the class is gentle or challenging, there is always space in my class to listen to your body and be light-hearted. My experience of yoga as both a teacher and a student continues to bring me joy and I hope to share that. When I’m not teaching yoga, I work as a designer in film and TV and lecturer in IADT, Dun Laoghaire. Supported by my yoga practice I’ve gone on to win awards for my work and hold a first class honours BA. Without yoga I would not achieved this.
Need a general sign off to go in here, just a short sentence or two like "I''d love to see you at a class soon" or something".
"The flow and ease of Alice’s welcoming style mixed with gentle, deep stretching is suitable for everyone and will manage to send you home with a huge sense of well being, gratitude and relaxation."
"I loved my class with Alice. She helped me enjoy it despite my hip being sore and made it doable for me."
"There is always such a warm and friendly atmosphere in her classes. Alice teaches with an enthusiasm that she passes on to those who practise with her and which flows through you long after you have finished the class. She helps to build your confidence each time while guiding you in a gentle way to attempt poses you might not be comfortable with practising at home by yourself. No pressure or judgement, just kindness and encouragement. If you haven’t taken a class with Alice put it on your to do list as you won’t regret it."
"After a year of practicing yoga Alice's Wednesday class has given me the confidence to practice at home! Really good guidance to help you with transitions and is the first class I've really felt engaged with my breath. Can't say enough good things about her teaching. Her new studio is gorgeous warm and peaceful and I can't wait to start a second class with her on Tuesdays too!"
