My name is Mary Gunning. I’m a Yoga & Meditation teacher, Reiki practitioner, Sound healer, Aromatherapist and Expedition trek leader. I’m passionate about nature, travel and a lover of life.
I set up holisticlife in order to help people live a balanced life.
My aim is to get people to slow down from the fast pace life we live in – and to not be so hard on themselves!
I teach Yin, Restorative, Hatha and Vinayasa Yoga. I’m not super bendy (it’s all that hillwalking!) and I can’t do lots of postures yet – or ever and that’s ok. Yoga is not about that. This is where I teach yoga from.
I think that there’s a perception out there that you have to be super skinny, flexible, fit, great balance etc,etc, to do yoga.
No! – Being the opposite of all that- is exactly why you should practice! It’s called a practice for a reason – it’s not about the end result. It’s just you and your mat – with no strings attached or expectations.
I regularly meditate and love the benefits this practice brings. I serendipitously found Reiki and loved it – to my surprise as I would have been pretty sceptical before hand. It has really benefited me & I’ve seen first hand the benefits it can bring to others too. The Sound Healing is something I’ve been interested in for years and I love, love, love it!
As a Sound therapist and Yoga teacher, I love providing a safe space for people to ‘Just Be’ and to share in their journey to question, to nourish compassion, kindness and self acceptance.
I’m based in Dublin and currently running events in Dublin, Meath and Kildare. I’m open to travelling anywhere to run 2 day events or more.
