Be respectful of your own time and to other clients who have shown up for the session.
Arrive 15 mins before sessions start. This allows you time to go to the toilet, register, set up your mat and props and to inform me of anything about your health (illness/ injury relevant to the class) before we start. This ensures all sessions start on time.

Be mindful of other people’s space. Do not step on other people’s mats. Be conscientious while walking around the studio before and after class. Walk around not over people’s mats. Keep conversation to a minimum and be quiet. This allows people to be mindful, to contemplate, to prepare for class and to meditate if they wish. This also applies at the end of the session.
For Restorative Yoga sessions; Bring 2 yoga blocks, bolster & 3 blankets for your support during class (not warmth), also an eye mask if you have one. If you don’t have your own yoga bolster and would like to borrow one from the studio – please bring 2 x pillow cases to cover it.

After class return any borrowed props to their original place, stored in the way that you found them.
Make sure you look around and take all of your belongings with you when you leave. Take a mindful moment to do this, it avoids stress later incase you lose something. I am not responsible for any items lost or stolen.
After practice; stay hydrated, eat healthy foods, monitor your physical, mental and emotional well being for 24hours. Be kind to yourself.
Booking Conditions & Refund policy.
Pre payment for events are required.
This is important – For you: to actually commit to your health and set your intention for your practice. The energetics of this and other actions are decisions that set your journey of intentional living to move in the right direction for you. It means that you are physically, mentally and emotionally turning up for yourself rather than a last minute decision. Make a mindful choice for yourself!
Prebooking is necessary to ensure that you have your space allocated in an event.
Prebooking and pre payment means that at the event there is some time for me to be available for your questions and that we can start on time.
Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis – to ensure your place on a workshop a deposit or full payment is required. Deposits and payments are non refundable and not transferable to another date.
Prebooking is necessary; to ensure that events happen as minimum numbers are required.
A full refund will be issued if a workshop is cancelled. If you can not attend a workshop that you have booked – you can not transfer payment to another date. However you can get somebody else to fill your place but you must let me know in advance.
If you are don’t show up, cancel your session -a refund or transfer to another event will not be issued. Places are in demand and other people have been refused entry in order to reserve your place.
You will not be admitted to a class or workshop if you arrive late. This is out of respect for everyone in attendance already focusing on their practice. Late arrival will be considered as a no show for class and you will not be issued with a refund.
On the day of events my focus is on being with clients, teaching and not the admin of events. Therefore late requests to join a class on the day will not be answered. So Please! Book your place early!

holisticlife was set up in order to help people live a balanced life.
Life is difficult- but we are not on our own- even though it feels that way sometimes.
holisticlife hopes to provide a platform for thought, inspiration, motivation and just a little pick me up!
To facilitate people to question and examine their own lives and get more balance in their life – whatever that means – for them. I’m not here to preach or judge – it’s about each individual journey. I hope to provide a space for self reflection, self compassion and self realisation.
I care deeply about the environment. Nature is my refuge, my playground, my space to rejuvinate and my source of solace, calm & inspiration. I conduct my business and my life in a way that is as light on the planet as possible. I believe the action of one person can make a difference. Yes, I print business cards & posters which I reuse – but you won’t see stacks of flyers left for people to take. I simply haven’t printed them. The last thing the planet needs is more flyers. I no longer even take other people’s business cards or flyers, but instead take a photograph on my phone – a lot lighter on the environment and you still have the information you need. I encourage you to do the same – not only with my business cards but everyone else’s too.
In order for you to to book a workshop, I will need your details to contact you regarding workshop information and upcoming events. Your details are also needed for contact tracing.
I use mailchimp to send you newsletters. Your details will not be shared or passed on to any third party for any reason without your permission. You can unsubscribe from this list at any time.
Listen to your body first.
Yoga is a physical activity, as with all physical activity there are risks of injury and some could be potentially serious. As a teacher I can’t tell what you are feeling – yoga postures affect everyone differently. You are in charge of your own body and how much you push yourself, please be mindful in your practice and listen to your body when it is sending you signals. Do not push beyond your limitations & these change every time you practice! Please ensure you are fit and healthy enough to attend – if you are in doubt about whether you are fit or well enough – please see your doctor before booking.
Accessibility and diversity.
At events you will be warmly welcomed.
You will be treated with kindness & respect.
Everyone deserves to be treated equally and with respect. This is a fundamental, core belief of mine.
In terms of accessibility – I must inform you that events taking place at Donabate and Dunshaughlin are on the first floor. There is a flight of stairs to climb to access the room.
Neither of these venues have lifts- so these rooms are not accessible to all. For this I am sorry but I can happily say that events that take place in Leixlip are wheelchair accessible and take place on the ground floor or have lift access.
If you don’t see a date or venue that suits, If you would like to host your own group event or book a personal session – Contact Me and I’ll be in touch! I can come to you! I work in the Dublin and Meath areas but will travel further for events of 2 days or more.
If you have any questions or suggestions about supporting your accessibility or individual needs with feeling safe and secure to practice, or other – please don’t hesitate to get in touch and let’s chat!
