About Us

About Us

We are a husband and wife team both born and bred in Clondalkin in Dublin, Ireland. Between us we have over 50 years experience in leadership and management roles in commercial environments and Caitriona is a successful business owner since 2006. We have been together for 30 years and are parents to two amazing girls, Aoibhinn and Soirse.  

A big challenge for us came with the birth of our first daughter. Aoibhinn, who is now fourteen, was born with a rare metabolic disorder, resulting in her having global developmental delay, blindness, severe epilepsy and other complex needs.  

As new parents nothing could prepare us for what laid ahead. We went straight into battle mode to keep Aoibhinn alive and then to give her the best quality of life possible. It was an absolute struggle on so many fronts. Over time, the constant battle was taking its toll on us. We were exhausted and starting to burnout and this was looking like our default future.

Within the chaos we had always tried to look after our health and wellbeing but we realised we were looking in the wrong direction. We had to find another way. The key for us was self awareness. 

We set out on an adventure to get behind our thoughts and feelings and to understand where our focus and energy was going. This led us down a fascinating path of new science, new experiences, new understanding and new tools. Our situation had not changed but we began changing the way we looked at it. We started to re-write our story.

Our new story is about understanding how to enjoy our experience of life and work from the inside out.

Now, we are sharing our experience and our toolkit to support others to grow and move forward so that personal and professional life is enriched with greater vitality, presence, ease and flow.

About Caitriona

Caitriona has been practicing yoga and all things movement for over 25 years.

Following her first yoga training with Yoga Therapy Ireland, Caitriona took a life changing step in 2006 when she left her corporate career of over ten years in marketing management and began teaching yoga full time.

Caitriona has found having a daily meditation  practice to be life changing, giving her access to deeply held inner resources, resilience, calmness and vitality.

Her appetite to continuously learn more about our amazing bodies has led her to constantly enrich her knowledge, training with World leaders in the field Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Somatic Movement, Embodiment, Meditation and Sound Healing. Now with a huge repertoire of training to draw from, Caitriona’s sole desire is to support and serve others through sharing her knowledge and enabling her students on their own journey of self-discovery.

Caitriona brings her personal heart centered, authenticity and warmth to all that she does.
