WHAT IS LIFE ALL ABOUT ANYWAY?
…but really, we all want the same thing: health, happiness and freedom. And Love. Abundance. Social security, peace, and maybe a job that is truly aligned with our soul. If only there was a way of achieving all of that. If only we could avoid suffering in our lives. If only….
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a manual for how to be a human being? For what life is really all about, how to find my own purpose, understand my karma and know exactly what I need to do in order to manifest all of the above?
Well… I have good news for you! There is such a thing!
The ancient Vedic texts are truly such a manual, if we learn to understand them and relate them to our own, personal life. They provide us with the language to understand our own soul and it’s journey, and with the tools to go on that journey smoothly and without any accidents or traffic jams…
Yoga as you may know it is only one tiny facet of the whole picture. It is an ancient psychology, a way of re-setting not only our nervous system but our whole being.
Let me teach you that language, those tools, so that they can empower you to live a life full of authenticity, joy, abundance, love and well-being.
I have experienced all of the Vedic teachings to be truly invaluable. They have transformed my health (both physical and mental), my energy levels and have shown me what the human mind (and body) really is capable of.
They have given me an understanding and a deep love for the world around me and have enabled me to live authentically and from a constant source of vital life energy, creativity and joy.
And I have seen this transformation over and over again in my students and clients and to witness their transformation has become my greatest motivation to continue offering the methods and teachings of Yoga, Ayurveda, Vedic Counselling and Vedic Astrology.
I believe that through these methods I can guide you toward greater health, happiness and authenticity in your life, so that you may feel a sense of true inner well-being, purpose and abundance in your life.
What is AyuYoga?
Ayu means Life. Yoga is the union of all of the layers of our consciousness.
Ayurveda is the science of life.
AyuYoga is Yoga for life.
It is Yoga based on Ayurvedic principles, aiming to create balance in body, energy, mind, consciousness and soul.
AyuYoga focuses on all of these areas – through the Vedic philosophy as a whole.
Asana is just one small part of it – an important part though. It supports us on our journey to greater freedom.
Freedom from restrictions, obstacles, addictions, disease, unconscious conditionings and limiting self-beliefs.
To achieve this, we use the Vedic traditions and teachings of the Yoga Sutras, Hatha Pradipika, Vedic Mythology, Vedanta, Ayurveda and Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) as well as additional methods of creativity, meditation and release.
In one on one counselling sessions, you will be guided toward greater freedom, using the methods that are most appropriate for you.
Your aim may be to find relieve from physical disorders, disease or weight issues, or it may be to grow in confidence, to understand your Karma better and find out what your true purpose in life is. Or it may be to feel more joy, connection and abundance in life, or to understand the workings of the universe and what is happening in the world at this time from a greater, karmic perspective.
My own journey of transformation started with a near-death experience in 1992, during a motorbike accident, which catapulted me on to a path of self-discovery and awakening
To find an answer to the big question of who am I, I studied theatre and dance, took on many jobs (stilt-walker, fire-breather, youth-worker, dancer, bouncer, post-natal assistant, medieval performer, to name a few…) and travelled in search of adventure.
I learned about the meaning of the divine feminine through ancient forms of expression found in art and dance and for many years I taught Belly Dance to groups of amazing women in Ireland.
I met incredible teachers who taught me about my own creative powers of manifestation, studied Shiatsu, Buddhism, creative writing, dance, Shamanic journeying and Vedic philosophy until the essence of all of these paths finally merged into one.
My own personal daily practice consists of chanting, pranayama, meditation and Asana as well as the continuous study and application of Vedic wisdom in daily life.
Creativity, particularly writing, remains an important part of my journey and I believe it to be crucial in acquiring a language of the soul, through which we can understand the deeper dimensions of life.
