Yoga Wellness Day
with Gillian McIlroy
Gillian is a yoga teacher from Co. Antrim, now teaching in Cork and Kinsale. She saw her mother practice and sometime teach yoga throughout her childhood and began to take interest in her grandmothers old yoga books as she reached adulthood. Gillian began studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga under Kushala Camarena at Purno Ham Yoga Center in Mexico City in 2006 and did her 200hr teacher training with him in 2012. She found the ashtanga practice and philosophy gave her a new freedom and vitality that is constantly evolving. Gillian lives near Oysterhaven where she paints mandalas and animals inspired in her yoga practice and the countryside around her. Gillian’s intent with her classes is to convey that what happens in the body happens in the mind, that the body is a wonder, and that there is no need for force where there could be ease.
