Aqua yoga in Ireland
As a Yoga and Swimming teacher combining two of my loves with Birthlight Aqua Yoga seemed the right path to take and to be trained by Francoise with her love and wisdom was truly inspiring.
Bringing this to Northern Ireland where yoga is not mainstream and still some treat with scepticism, has been a challenge to say the least. I do feel a bit of a pioneer on the Emerald Isle.
I am passionate to help Mums have a happy and healthy pregnancy and labour. By teaching combined yoga moves and better understanding of breathing in the medium of water has had only positive outcomes. To see the Mums leave class with relaxed bodies and peaceful minds is most rewarding.
Many of my Mums and babies join my baby swimming classes after birth where I also combine some postnatal moves to help close the body after birth. I feel privileged to be a part of their lives.
Gill along with Liz Doherty helped to bring our first Birthlight Aqua yoga course to Northern Ireland last summer. It was a great success and we are returning again this year in June - course information
