Namaste! Hi, I’m Moira and I’m a 500 hour Yoga Scotland trained yoga teacher and Ayurvedic Therapist.
I have been sharing share Hatha yoga practices in Dumfries and Galloway since 2011 and also offer Yoga for Pregnancy.
I have been helping mammas-to-be enjoy their pregnancies and prepare for birth and beyond for over 6 years now.
As an Ayurvedic Therapist, who trained in both the UK and India, I am able to discuss how Ayurveda diet, lifestyle, herbology and manual treatments can help in disease prevention and also be applied in the early stages of many common diseases, both physical and emotional. The dual sciences of Ayurveda and Yoga have the power to transform your life as it has transformed mine.
I hope you enjoy browsing this site but if you have any questions please just get in touch.
Like many people I came to yoga to keep fit and get a bit of peace and quiet from the family. But it didn’t take me long to realise that there was so much more to yoga than a few backbends and leg stretches. I could feel the difference that conscious breathing, which is a core part of yoga, made, not only in helping me in and out of the postures but also to my everyday mental attitude. (My, oh my it is such a stress-buster!)
As the years have progressed I have gone on a real yoga journey, studying with many teachers, undertaking pre-and post-natal training with British Wheel of Yoga, and exploring aspects of a rounded yoga practice in real depth, such as pranayama and meditation.
I then found many lightbulb moments in Ayurveda, the Indian health science, and, following various courses in the UK on Ayurveda and Herbology, I took the plunge and went to India to train as an Ayurvedic Therapist with Dr Arun Sharma in Dharamsala.
My aim is to inspire each individual to understand their own potential spiritually and physically through developing a deeply listening and receptive yoga practice, and to enable and empower everyone who comes to practice with me to have the confidence and courage to explore and access their own personal yoga journey.
I am not a knit-your-own-sandals yogi (although total respect if you are!). I have a job, run a house, keep the family together, lead yoga practices, try to keep up with friends, get up as many hills as I can and like to follow all of that up with a lovely glass of red wine and some good, nourishing food.
Yoga helps me to live my best life, be grateful for each and every single day and has empowered me to be all I can be and to hopefully age well. It’s so much more than the ability to touch your toes!
