Ireland. I began my love affair with yoga 13 years ago as a means to manage stress and after my first class I was hooked. However, like all great love stories, I broke up and made up with Yoga many times whilst dabbling with boot camps, boxing, dance and eventually running. It was through running that I reunited with my first love, using yoga to help with injuries and performance.
