About Ahimsa Yoga and Wellness
It all started when…
In 2010 Clare was living in a little seaside town, just south of Dublin, called Dunlaoghaire. Looking for something new to do in the evenings, Clare tried a Yoga Class and immediately fell in love with the practice. Inspired by the ambience of the room, the flowing sun salutations and how good she felt after each class, Yoga quickly became a part of life.
Shortly after this, Clare studied a beginners Yoga and Pilates course and started teaching a small number of students.
Then in June 2016 the real journey began. Clare's partner Peter was between jobs and both were at a loss on what to do next in their careers. Deciding that a little travel may be the best way forward and understanding Clare's passion for Yoga, Peter stumbled upon a Yoga School in Rural Banagalore, India, called Shrimath Yoga.
Soon after finding the school, the decision was made to sign up to the accredited and globally recognised 200 hour Teacher Training Course. Bags were packed, Apartment keys where handed over and off they went to India.
Studying 200 hours of Teacher training at Shrimath Yoga gave Clare a wonderful insight into the Yoga philosophy. Having only studied the Yoga Asanas (postures) up until this point, Clare had no idea that she was in for was one of the best experiences of her life, delving into the philosophy behind the 8 limbs of Yoga and understanding that this ancient practice is about discovering self love and acceptance, before being able to show this outwardly to those around you.
Clare has continued her study since returning from India, earning a Diploma in the Anatomy of Yoga. Clare has participated in many workshops for professional development and has gained a deep passion for Yoga Nidra and Mantra Meditation.
Clare's outlook on teaching Yoga is to share this practice with one and all in a personable, traditional and welcoming environment.
She looks forward to welcoming you to a class soon.
