It is with excitement and relief that I celebrate being open for my first full year. I started with a partner, and it was difficult to cope with all the struggles of a new business, AND have your partner bale, but with the support of lovely students and customers, along with my talented daughters & husband, I am happy to still be standing in my gorgeous studio, looking out at the Shannon (or wedding guests walking into the Landmark Hotel). I am delighted to be introducing aerial & yoga to so many children, and to the rare brave adults too! :)
I enjoy teaching private art classes and meeting a range of people in the community that I've lived in for 15-years now. I feel more a part of the town, and of Ireland than ever! I even became a citizen this year.
With the departure of my partner, I have also started teaching yoga to adults. It is such a surprising pleasure. Who would have guessed that teaching yoga is almost as enjoyable and relaxing as doing yoga?! I took my first class back in 1991 in the basement of a Methodist church on my college campus, and returned to it time and time again throughout my life. I also began studying and practicing zen meditation in the late 1990s. It feels like those years of life experience are serving me now. Join me in class, so I can pass it on!
So... Happy Birthday to Soul Space! I am delighted to be here. I thank all of my loyal customers and students, my family, Eva Hickey and my new intern, Eimear Lowe. This is a group effort :)
