Eireann loves to serve & offer a super supportive, positive, challenging, and playful class for all participants along their unique journeys, And seeks to ensure a very relaxed atmosphere for maximum comfort for all within their practice. This student-for-life's classes have been described by fellow teachers as: "Validation Yoga", "Exactly what I needed!", and "Joy Yoga." Bringing with her a genuine enthusiasm and creative heart to everything she does, Eireann strives to continually bring her students a fresh approach to the learning process along their path!

With interests in the mind-body-spirit broadening spectrum of the Healing Arts, to include: Expressive Arts, Art Therapy, Play Therapy via Creative Expression, Somatic explorations in Ecstatic Dance, Acupressure & Meridian-Yoga, Music and Sound Therapies, Chanting, in addition to continued studies & passionate interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Healing, The Six Healing Sounds, Usui Reiki Healing Energy, Family Constellation, Crystal Energy Healing and other modalities, Eireann offers a growing holistic perspective and approach for the ever-evolving refinement of the practice.

She first began studying yoga in 1997 when her grandmother introduced her to teachings of hatha. It's application continued to take root. After a decade of practicing, growing, and seeking, she was thrilled to find a local offering for a year of teacher training, coincidentally being taught by a local favourite instructor. The following year in 2007-08 she was blessed to complete a 200-Hr Teacher Training with Ti Harmony's Go-Deep Studio of NC, which gave way to greater applied understanding and direction along her own studies.

Eireann has devoted much time and energy into cultivating a great strength in her practice. She endeavours to demonstrate for all students how the healing and clearing capacities of Yoga can benefit all and are always accessible, no matter the challenge.
With the call for greater expansion through study and practice, as well as additional participation and attendance in an array of workshops & classes offering various perspectives, she dreams to contribute to help make a difference for our world.

After having overcome a number of serious physical and systemic injuries in her 20's, her regular yoga practice amongst other modalities and lifestyle refinements, has helped that to be possible. Eireann desires to share constructive support for those with any kinds of obstacle or injury, in experiencing more of their joy and greater contentment now and along the paths of healing and general personal development, and in bringing a greater restoration into holistic wellbeing through it's practical application.

Today, Eireann continues the unfoldment, clarifying and refining in practice what it means to honor oneself, in context of highest good.
She believes that the revolution starts from within, that we are the change we desire to see outwardly, that doing our bests is the best place to be, and that the very best way to help others, is to motivate and inspire for themselves through exemplification. ''Learning Is A Treasure That Will Follow Its Owner Everywhere.'' She personally feels that the investment of teaching for others is an ultimate win-win for all, in that in addition to uplifting and giving to others for their own expansion, it also assists her own expansion of awareness through personal yoga study.

Although a fresh and relatively new instructor of yoga, Eireann possesses already the gracious experience of teaching for a wide range of populations, from different walks of life.
Including:
yoga for children,
tweens, and teens,
gentle yoga,
aerial yoga (co and sub teaching),
office/chair yoga,
partner yoga,
family yoga,
recovering-perfectionist yoga ;),
those with stress-triggered challenges,
those challenging fibromyalgia,
those challenging chronic myofascial pain, multiple sclerosis,
grounding and focus practice for those with ADD,
grounding for embodied physical awareness for those with Asperger's
and other good work. . .

CLASSES:

Her classes do not subscribe to any single categorized-regimen of style, yet rather bring the intent of Presence, holding a space for Body-Benevolence by way of loving acceptance, while focus is placed on growing the connection of & uplifting the body, mind, spirit ~ acknowledging these vehicles, tools or temples, as indeed interdependent.

And amidst the variety of approaches, it may be no surprise that Eireann is passionately influenced by Acu-yoga & Meridian-Yoga, incorporating the meridian system into specific yoga sequences of movements & held postures which activate & help to especially move energy through the specific organ systems throughout the body. These results play a large role in practice, at present. :)

APPRECIATION FOR ALL THERAPEUTIC MODALITIES:

Earning a BFA from Western Carolina University, Eireann's experience from an Art studio focus in Painting & Drawing allowed for the opportunity of much artistic exploration and relishment. As well, it enabled much retuning within the nuances of her symbolic language unique to her personal narrative explored and expressed in her work.

It was during that evolving time, that she noticed the artistic process was indeed in and of itself, art therapy; Another form of healing; All art making may not necessarily be such, however, with the simple acknowledgement of this potential of liberation, empowerment, or catharsis through the empowering, active practice of creative expression, (whether visually, somatically, musically, cognitively, literally, and whether emotionally, intellectually, spiritually or otherwise,) we may enter the door to a wider world of what is; a beautiful state of greater holistic wholeness & greater balance in our Lives.

SOME BASICS FOR BRINGING CONSCIOUS INTENTION:
