Hatha Flow Yoga, Mindfulness, Restorative Yoga, Kundalin

Maggie has been with Tree of Life since 2007, facilitating a variety of classes, workshops and events. Bringing professionalism and a truly caring, non judgemental energy to her events. Maggie studied in Sydney Australia, where she spent 9 years living on and off.

She began studying an “advanced diploma of integrated body therapies” full time and loved every minute as she has a big interest in the body, how it works and how to maintain it.

She has a background as a full time remedial massage therapist, but not for long as her interest in yoga grew stronger and went on to complete a “Diploma of yoga teacher training” at Nature Care College Sydney. Since then yoga has become not only her hobby but a way of living that makes her feel great, keeping her body working properly and most of all keeps her mind peaceful and relaxed.

The philosophy of Yoga and its texts are amazing little treasures of knowledge that make so much sense to Maggie, constantly putting life into perspective.  Maggie' I Feel that I have only touched on all that there is to learn in yoga, and hope I can keep learning and pass on my knowledge to others! I completed a diploma of Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training in Limerick in 2010.   I teach Kundalini workshops on weekends.I have continued studying with teachers such as Shiva Rea, Donna Farhi, John Frend, Mia Finnes, Gurmuck and many others. I practice and study vipassana Buddhist meditation and I also studied in Mindfulness teacher training with the Mindfulness Centre in Dublin, specialising in MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction)'
