Originally from Australia, Matthew began practicing Yoga in 1999 as a way of improving posture, flexibility and physical health. In 2001, Iyengar Yoga took his interest because of its detailed and precise instruction and how this led to a more focused practice. Holding the poses for longer also allowed time to go deeper into each pose and to develop more body awareness. An increasing interest in the subject of Yoga and a steady personal practice of Iyengar Yoga since moving to Dublin in 2008 led him to undertake Teacher Training in 2012. Matthew completed the 2 year Teacher Training programme conducted by Eileen Cameron and Margaret Cashman at iYoga in 2014. Matthew’s interest and experience continues to grow and develop as he attends regular classes in Dublin as well as workshops/retreats with visiting international Senior Iyengar teachers. Matthew holds a Junior Intermediate Level 1 teaching certificate.
