Heryoga classes are a well rounded balance of asanas (posture work), Meditation (mind work) and Pranayama (breath work). She is fully qualified both in adult’s and children’s yoga.
The yoga pose
“The yoga pose is not the goal. Becoming flexible is not the goal. Standing on your hands is not the goal. The goal is to create space where you were once stuck. To unveil the layers of protection you’ve built around your heart. To appreciate your body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. To make peace with who you are. To love, well….you. Come to your yoga mat to feel; not to accomplish. Shift your focus. Your heart will thank you.”

Studies have shown that practitioners of both tai chi and qigong have found a boost in alpha brain waves, suggesting relaxation and beta waves which indicate strong focus. “It has the dual benefit of relaxing you but also sharpening your mind’ says Dr. Lin, a professor of cell biology at the University of California, Irvine.
Qigong has an effect on the cultivation of balance and harmony of qi, positively influencing a person’s energy and impacting what the Chinese would refer to as qi channels or meridian energy pathways in the body. It activates the natural self-healing capacity within a person. Many branches of qigong have been refined for well over five thousand years. I qualified to teach intermediate qi gong in the UK and have in more recent years gone on to further my skills, to train and to qualify with the Irish Health Qi Gong Association. I am now a Senior Instructor with the Irish Health Qi Gong Association and I teacher train different qigong forms including Five Animals Qi Gong, Ma Wang Dui, Ba Duan Jin, Qi Gong Stick, Shibashi and the Daoyin Qigong set for the heart. My interest and focus is on the health and wellbeing that Qigong can effectively enable through regular practice and consistency. I like to empower my clients and students and bring out the very best in them. Positive transformation one can experience in oneself and others is what drives me. I have a very down to earth, practical and no nonsense approach. Qigong for me is a pleasant set of exercises which is very nourishing for health and wellbeing. My practice of Qigong is grounded in my own Christian faith and devotion
