Deirdra has been practising yoga and studying its philosophies for over 14 years and specialises in yoga for relaxation and yoga for sports.

“I use an intuitive blend of all my disciplines in my teaching… its like solution based yoga for whatever “issue” the student comes with, be it tight hamstrings, a lull in their sporting performance, a stressful job, or just needing to connect more to their body. I love working one-to -one in the tradition of passing yogic knowledge on but I also enjoy the sense of fun and working together you can get from group classes.”
“Seeing people get the results they want is amazing. I am truly blessed to be able to teach and share such a gift with people whether its helping a runner perform better or stay injury free or helping someone cope with stressful situations and be able to make decisions in a clear manner. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than helping people achieve their goals and feel more confident, more calm and able to take on the world!”
Constantly increasing her knowledge and experience Deirdra completed Part 1 of John Scotts Ashtanga teacher training in 2011.
She alsos works in partnership with an ABTA registered travel specialist www.tatrayogaholidays.com as a tutor for yoga and relaxation breaks.
