The yoga I teach is classical yoga from the Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga traditions.
My daily self-practice inspires my teaching. I instruct intuitively and guide the class to meet their needs.
I encourage self-awareness, tuning in to practice at the pace and intensity which is right for you, your body and on the day.
For me, there is no such thing as “the perfect pose”, its not about looking beautiful on a yoga mat, the pose is perfect for you in the moment and on the day.
I demonstrate different stages of each pose to meet the needs of a mixed level class. The classes are suitable for beginner and mixed levels of practice.

Me- Deirdre O’Toole – Your Guidance.
Yoga and meditation are my passion in life. I am a certified Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar Yoga teacher and a mindfulness meditation teacher since 2011. I am practicing Yoga and meditation with over 15years. I am committed to lifelong learning and evolution of awareness body, mind and soul. I regularly attend training, workshops and retreats worldwide to further enhance my teaching skills. It is truly a privilege and I take great joy in sharing what I love. I instruct from a place of love & gentle curiosity for what is arising during the yoga practice, joyful acceptance for the unfolding wisdom & love and kindness for the wonderment of life and human connection. We journey together- I wish you a wonderful retreat.
I am a registered general nurse and I’ve studied applied science, so I understand the human body and work safely and therapeutically. I love to travel and experience different cultures. India and Africa have a piece of my heart. “They have their own pulse” as I often say. I come from a beautiful little island off the west coast of Ireland, Inishturk Island with 52 people living there. It’s fabulous. Galway city- the city of tribe and culture in the west of Ireland is my base. I am a fun, outgoing adventurous person. I love to dance. I make raw organic chocolate to share, just a little insight into me J. I look forward to sharing my wonderful retreat with you, join me…
