Lourda Scott

Certified to teach Meditation, Youth Mindfulness, Kids Yoga and Prenatal Yoga

Lourdas first introduction to Meditation was when she first started Yoga fourteen years ago and was in fact the part of the class she disliked the most! She just didn’t get the whole lying still and wanted to get up and DO something!


As tends to happen though, life threw a few curve balls over the years leading to periods of stress and insomnia and while Yoga helped her deal with this to a degree, she didn’t always have time to devote to practice. It wasn’t until I stumbled across a Foundation course in Mindfulness Meditation in the Dublin Buddhist Centre that something really clicked for her. She couldn’t believe how simple the techniques were and immediately felt the benefits of a daily 5 minute practice. For Lourda, the most obvious change was being able to detach herself from her internal commentary and not get caught up in her thoughts. She completed the course wondering why more and more people weren’t doing this and why it was so difficult to find a weekly class to participate in. Since then Lourda has continued meditating at home and continued to obtain a 180 hr Meditation Teaching Diploma with Yoga Ireland - an internationally recognised yoga school. Through this year long course she strengthened her own practice and became passionate about taking the mystery out of meditation and making it accessible to everyone.


Her life took on another path when Lourda became the Mother of a beautiful boy. Her regular practice of Pregnancy Yoga, of which mindfulness played a big part, was of huge benefit throughout pregnancy and birth. She says giving birth is really like a marathon meditation session as you stay focused on your breath and in the present moment for hours on end. She subsequently became a certified Prenatal Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance Approved School, ‘The Elbowroom’ and love sharing what she has learnt with other Mamas to be, through such a special, yet often very daunting time in their lives.


As her baby boy was joined by two baby girls she wondered how she could introduce these valuable skills into their lives. As she see them surrounded by technology from the get go she really feels the need as a parent to teach our kids from an early age how to ‘switch off’ and chill out. Having completed Rainbow Kids and Family Yoga Teacher training Lourda continued to train with Mindfulschools and is excited to teach the Mindful Educator curriculum. This research backed mindfulness programme has been taught to over 300,000 students worldwide and Lourda is really excited to pass on this knowledge to kids in her area.

Jess Oatway
Yogajess's journey was born out of work related stress and back pain! She was working in a stressful job and noticed that after sitting at her desk for 3 to 4 hours without moving, her back would really start to hurt. So she found a Vinyasa yoga class near to her work and started going…(religiously) ….every Monday. She was hooked!
She started to REALLY get stressed in work which was taking over in her downtime as well and noticed that during yoga practice her concentration and breathing were so focused and calm she would forget about work and her mind felt peaceful and spacious. The anxious feeling disappeared.
Jess decided she wanted to learn more about the practice, have it as part of her everyday life and to introduce other people to yoga. She trained to become a teacher and completed her YTT 200hrs under the tutelage of Sibylle Dalmain and Naomi Sturdy at Yoga Dublin.
She soon realised that while a lot of people knew about yoga and wanted to try it, there was a feeling of fear and intimidation to go to the first classes. Her goal is to take those fears away. You can expect to be pushed and to have a sense of achievement in Jess's class, feel calm and relaxed but still have fun and a laugh. At the end of the day, we all need to stretch, strengthen, laugh and bring a bit of zen into our hectic lives.

Hannah Partis-Jennings

A lifelong interest in health lead Hannah to Pilates, which she believes to be the perfect form of exercise to compliment everyday living. Having worked in the health food industry for many years, and with a great knowledge of nutrition, she wanted to find an exercise method that would enhance her understanding of the human body and how to maximize strength, health and wellbeing. Pilates, both relaxing and strengthening, was this ideal method. With an ITEC Level Three Diploma in Pilates Teaching, Hannah is delighted to be able to share her enjoyment of Pilates with others.
Sophie Grace
Six years ago Sophie moved to China, she was living in a huge city that was busy, loud and stressful. After a couple of weeks she found yoga and her mat quickly became her happy place and an escape from the craziness of everyday life in China. She soon became hooked and has been on her journey ever since and is loving being able to share her practice. Sophie's favourite thing about yoga is that there is no pressure, no judgement, no expectations: it gives us the space to be ourselves, perfect just the way we are.

Sophie pays great attention to safety and alignment principles in her classes but she take a light-hearted approach and creates a warm and friendly atmosphere where we're all in it together. She always says that we should use the pose to get into the body, not the body to get into the pose and that there is no 'one size fits all' when it comes to yoga. She encourages people to tune into their bodies, find their own pace and feel what's right for them. Expect lots of fun transitions, dynamic flows with variations to suit everybody and loads of love from hands-on assists.
She brings her passion and love for teaching to every class and loves teaching a fast-paced Vinyasa Flow class just as much as a gentle and juicy Restorative class, and a bit of everything in between. Her hope is that you leave feeling strong, happy and nourished both inside and out!
