About Maeve (Owner & Teacher)
Hi there! I’m Maeve. Welcome to Ebb & Flow Yoga. I am a certified Yoga Therapist & Yoga Teacher. I hold a range of certifications such as: Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs (Registered Teacher), Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Mindfulness & Animal Flow Fitness. I am also a Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist.
I came to yoga a number of years ago, to a hot power practise known as Fierce Grace. I got started originally for fitness, as I was a reluctant runner looking for an alternative! I was also in quite a stressful, busy corporate job with a ridiculous commute and badly needed the ‘down-time’.
I initially got hooked on the physical benefits this form of yoga gave me, but I unexpectedly began to find myself more and more drawn in by the mental balance I came enjoy from yoga.
As I caught the bug, I began to explore other styles of yoga also, such as, Forrest Yoga, Bikram, Acroyoga, Aerial Flow, Yin & Vinyasa. It was with Vinyasa I found my true passion – blending a powerful, physical flow practise with mindfulness and breathing techniques. Yin is the opposite of the strong Yang / Vinyasa style and this balance suits my personality and personal preferences. I have gone on to achieve a Diploma in Yoga Therapy (adapting Yoga for health conditions, ailments & injuries) to support my belief that Yoga is for everyone and every body. This intensive, comprehensive study on anatomy & physiology supported me further to ensure my Yoga classes are accessible for all body types, sizes, shapes regardless of experience, age or injuries. I have also become a registered Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs Teacher, I’m honoured to be the only Studio offering this evidence based, proven effective programme in Co. Kerry.
Back in early 2017, I made the leap, leaving Dublin and the corporate working world behind to move home to Co. Kerry. Back to my beloved beach (Banna!) to teach Yoga full-time and it's been an amazing experience! It's very cool to have been the first to offer a weekly Yin Yoga, Yoga Therapy, YHLB, Aerial Yoga & Yoga for Pregnancy in Tralee! I’ve also made it a goal to offer innovate, creative workshops & events such as YogaFest Tralee, Yoga & SUP / Surf Adventure Days, Hot Yoga on the Pool Deck & many more…
My teaching experience from some great Yoga studios & Teachers and with corporate clients in Dublin, led me to develop a unique style! In my classes you can expect a laid back, playful approach with strong flows. My focus tends not to be solely on physical alignment, as I bring the concept of mindfulness to the mat too and will encourage you to try this out for yourself!
And here’s the thing, it won't always be easy, sometimes it’s going to be really challenging but I promise you this, it’s absolutely worth it! Come to class and join me for some innovative sequencing, a rocking sound track and develop peace of mind. Come along and go with the flow!
