About Me – Timeline & Random Facts:
Posted on: April 23, 2019
April 23rd 1985 – Born Earth Side, in Dublin Ireland.
Childhood – lived in Kildare, Ireland on a stud farm, two younger sisters, moved to Virginia, USA – did kindergarten there, Still have the most vivid memories of my OOO (out of the ordinary) experiences and ‘imaginary friends’ there. Moved back to Dublin, Ireland. Had a big imagination, the usual – saw things and had experiences that were considered a bit too imaginative, I still remember so many of my OOO experiences and memories/dreams, but I generally kept them to myself. Spent one year in an Irish Speaking school (Gaeltacht).
12 years old, our sister Jill died, she was an earth angel, born with Trisomy18 (Edwards Syndrome) She broke the mould and lived much, much longer than expected, filling our life with unconditional love!
13 years old, initiated into Reiki with Maria Rawlins
15 y/o began modelling, left the school I was being bullied at.
16 y/o started practicing yoga, completed Reiki II
19 y/o did a Ballymaloe chef course – yes random fact! 😉
20 y/o BA 1st Class Hons. Degree in Interior Architecture, won a bursary for my Wellness Centre design based on colours emotional effects on your wellbeing. My dissertation was on the effects of Light and Colour on Space and Geomancy. Graduated with a 1st class honours – Ireland in recession = no work for freshly graduated designers.
2009 – spent 3 years travelling the world – 30 countries. Including South America and hiking to Machu Picchu, Peru, driving North and South Island of New Zealand in a Lord of the Rings painted van, getting happily lost on remote islands off the beaten track in Fiji and surviving on Rum and Coke.
2010 – first time in Ubud, Bali. 3 weeks there and I was a changed person. I did not want to leave – I wonder if I had stayed where I would be?! Met Prem & Radha, began practicing mysore style ashtanga – loved it! Opened up about my spiritual passion and began actively developing this side of me. I read books, sooo many books, attending classes and small events with teachers learning ancient spiritual wisdom and yoga philosophy.
Oz – After months of failing to get a job in Interior Architecture I landed a job at lululemon in Sydney, Australia. I learned about goal coaching. Set a goal to do a YTT Yoga Teacher Training.
Oz visa ended, we toured Asia on a shoestring, ave.$20 a day for the two of us – oh the places we stayed and the incredible food we enjoyed. Our most cherished memories are these next 10 months: the exquisite beauty of Japan – simple breathtaking; got a cargo boat to China (random, but spent 3 days unable to lift our heads from sea sickness). Traveled by land from China to Singapore for 9 months. Respectively doing our trainings in our areas of interest, yoga and meditation YTT for moi, and fitness and Muay Thai boxing training for Rob.
2011 – Did my first YTT in Thailand with Paul Dallaghan, had a very disciplined mysore ashtanga practice (2.5 hrs at 5am) for a few years, moved more to chakra vinyasa and yin, as my own personality moulded with my daily practice. Did YTT’s with Shiva Rea (Chakra Vinyasa), Sebastian Pucelle (Yin Yoga) and Elbow Room’s – Pre & Post natal Yoga and Active Birth Course.
