When taking a class with Suzanne, you can expect motivating instruction throughout a challenging and rejuvenating Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga or the class she developed called Yoga Sculpt. She encourages students to be positive, to leave their worries behind and to have fun reaching towards their personal best.

Orla Fitzgerald ( Yoga Teacher & Acupuncturist)
Orla began practising yoga over 10 years ago and it quickly became an integral part of her life. With the help of a wonderful teacher, Marianne Jacuzzi, she developed a daily Ashtanga practice. It was through this practice that Orla experienced the truly transformative power of yoga.
Along with health and fitness benefits, yoga helped her to find balance and tranquility in her everyday life. As an acupuncturist and herbalist, Orla was aware of the body’s ability to heal itself. Yoga, however, helped her to deepen her understanding of the importance of balance in body and mind.
She is a certified Yoga Alliance teacher. Her classes are dynamic and flowing and, with a focus on breath and cultivating awareness, she hopes to share the truly wonderful and unique benefits that yoga can bring to anyone who wants to practice.

After many years practicing Ashtanga and Vinyasa classes she completed her Teacher Training in Kerala India early this year. During her work as an Athletic Therapist, Kim has had the privilege of working with many forms of the human body, from Olympic gymnasts to rugby players. She applies this experience and understanding of the human body to her teachings, trusting strongly in yoga’s ability to invigorate every individual with health, strength and well-being.
In Kim’s classes expect a physically strong but mindful practice, with a focus on body awareness, core stability and quality of movement. She believes that Yoga is a truly transformational process, cultivating strength, grace and health in the body while instilling clarity, vitality and stillness of the mind.
Kim is also available as an Athletic Therapist in MYB.
Sarah Jane O’Sullivan trained in Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Claire Missingham. After her first Vinyasa Flow class in 2004, she felt totally at home and has since spent many hours on the mat evolving and learning as much as she can. What drew her to this style is the beautiful flow and ease of moving through each posture, the feel of meditation in motion and the use of uplifting music.
Sarah-Jane believes all forms of yoga come from the same place and that they all have the same end goal – to achieve inner peace. She currently practices many different forms of hatha yoga and likes to incorporate all of what she has learned into her classes.
Over the years Sarah-Jane has learned that yoga is not only about the physical body but you can learn to heal yourself through mind-body awareness. The moments of stillness during each session can be extremely beneficial for healing and finding that connection with yourself again.
Yoga has enabled Sarah-Jane to find the strength to live and speak her own truth, to overcome fears and to enjoy each moment in life. She hopes to encourage each of her students to find the same. Sarah Jane is qualified to teach meditation, restorative yoga and vinyasa flow yoga and likes to use a little bit of each of these elements in all her classes. Her classes are alignment based with focus on breath awareness and have a fun, flowing nature.
