Gillian Hick: Teacher profiles
Gillian has been practising ashtanga yoga on a daily basis since 2010, having first been introduced to this style of yoga by Anthony Kearney. As a mother of three and running a busy veterinary practice, she was immediately captured by the sense of ease and spaciousness that the practice added to her life. Within months, the health benefits were also transformative on many levels, in particular dealing very effectively with long term asthma, and chronic insomnia from an over active mind! She continued to practice with Anthony over the next 5 years and for the last year has been observing and assisting teaching with him on a regular basis. She recently completed the rigorous two year teacher training course in Ashtanga Yoga Dublin in Blackrock under the guidance of David Collins and Paula Herbert, adding pranayama and meditation to her daily practice. She has also studied pranayama with Suddhir Tiwari and practiced with Manju Jois, Richard Spahn and Guy Donahaye which has added clarity, contentment and inspiration to her practice and to her life.
