About Susan

Susan is a founder member of Mandala Yoga Dublin. She has been practicing yoga for over 12 years and is a certified instructor since 2009. She has taught yoga internationally, in the US and Asia and loves to travel, teach and practice a range of yoga styles.

‘‘For me yoga began as a simple ‘stretch + sweat’ endeavour. I stumbled one wet Friday evening into a stifling Bikram yoga class over 10 years ago and…. I just kept going back.  My practice began as an exercise in stretching my teflon-tight, marathon-running hamstrings.  Little did I realise then how much yoga would, over time, stretch my mind, my body and my world view, in so many weird and wonderful ways.

The strength and flexibility I have built in my physical body today is nothing compared to the mental and emotional strength, courage and flexibility I have gained and continue to receive from my practice’’.

Susan is certified to teach Bikram, Vinyasa Flow, Yin yoga and an empowering Kundalini-inspired sequence called Envision Yoga. She is also a yin meditation teacher. And is a qualified massage therapist. She likes to weave all these different styles and traditions into her practice and when creating intelligent and fun flows and classes.

Today ‘my yoga’ is so much more about what happens OFF the mat than what is happening on the mat. I continue to be amazed at how regular practice helps me to be grateful, contented and to #findthebalance.

Having started out as a pure ‘hot yoga junkie’! in the last few years I have found myself increasingly drawn ‘yinside’ and am enjoying that more contemplative, meditative side of my practice.

I believe everybody’s journey with yoga is their own. Yoga is an amazing mirror that allows us to see where we are at any given time. And how we can be at our best – both in good times and bad.  My greatest pleasure is to see a student return after their first class. My mantra for myself is Stay Humble. Stay Curious. Never Give Up.
