Marian is an experienced yoga teacher based in Kilkenny, Ireland and has been teaching Yoga since 2009. Her initial teacher training in India marked a very important change of direction in her life.
Initially she choose the more traditional teaching’s of Yoga with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Academy in India. This included the full spectrum of Yoga, nothing was left out, it was there a new love affair started and that was Yoga. There was no turning back and she went on to study and live the life of a Karma Yogi in the Sivananda Yoga Centrum in Berlin. This was a challenging time for Marian and many great life lessons were learnt. “Learning how to serve without expectation is something that does not come easily for some of us”, says Marian, but it was worth every minute. The main thing she noticed from the very start of her practice was how the postures (asanas) had a direct positive effect on the mind, unblocking what is blocked in us, therefore allowing our true spirit to shine. This was the catalyst for her, to feel mentally grounded and to move forward in life freely and lovingly with others, nature and the world.
Since then she has studied extensively with many world renown teachers, to mention, Shiva Rea and Bernie Clark. Marian approaches her classes with clarity, fun and passion, intuitive to people’s personal needs so they feel empowered and confident to move forward on their own journey. Offering classes in Hatha, Vinyasa, Therapy, Yin and Meditation, Marian has been blessed to study under some amazing teachers in India, America, Austria, Berlin, L.A, Amsterdam and Canada. She also teaches Somatics Movement Education by Thomas Hanna, an amazing subtle integrative, mind/body therapy to relieve chronic pain for the long term. Offering Yoga Holidays in Europe and India and yoga/somatic weekends in Ireland. “My wonderful students who have come my way have taught me most of all”, she says. Namaste!
