About Pamela Sheil

Pamela Sheil became interested in yoga in her late teens but started practicing in earnest 23 years ago as a way of grounding herself, when life was hectic with three small children.

In 2010, simply as a way of self-development and discovery, she   enrolled on a teacher training diploma course with Yoga Therapy Ireland (YTI).  Initially there were no plans to teach but as the two year course advanced yoga roots became deeper and deeper and with encouragement from YTI and very good friends she graduated to teaching.  

Two years later she returned to YTI to bring her knowledge a little deeper and enrolled on their yoga therapy diploma course.  Pamela continues to teach yoga weekly, has run summer ‘yoga in the park’ sessions, and attends regular workshops to keep her skills up to date.

 

About Val Stanley

Val Stanley has, since her early twenties, been interested in yoga and eastern philosophy.

During her early travels in Africa she came across some very inspiring teachers and yoga practitioners. On returning to Ireland in the early eighties she trained as a teacher with the newly founded Irish Yoga Association (IYA). 

Val always endeavours to keep her yoga classes playful and accessible to everyone, enabling students to explore their bodies using the power of the breath to keep grounded and enabling her students to find the type of meditation and mindfulness that works for them, be it active, quiet, focused or contemplative.

She is also very interested in third world development, sustainability and spiritual ecology and the need for us to live in harmony with ourselves, nature and the sacred.  She believes Yoga is a wonderful reminder of that connectivity.
