Eilis started yoga over 10 years ago with a beginner’s course in Ashtanga Yoga. Although the course was tough she was smitten by the flow of movement. Initially concerned more with getting into a pose - reaping the benefits from each pose took time. Currently her daily practice is a mix of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow.
Over the years Eilis has explored her love of yoga and has completed a number of training courses. The most influential were: David Swenson - Primary Series Teacher Training London; Paul Dallagan – yoga retreat Koh Samui, Thailand; Sharath Rangaswamy- mysore practice Goa, India; Ajay Kumar – mysore practice Mysore, India; BNS Iyengar – pranayama Mysore, India, and Prem Carlisi & Heather Duplex - mysore practice Ubud, Bali. She completed her teacher training in 2008 at the Green Lotus Yoga School.
As a teacher Eilis aims to enable students to: work energetically with their breath; become aware of their physical limitations and possibilities; enjoy practicing yoga and the many benefits from it.
