She was working as a researcher on the genome project in San Francisco when she took her first yoga class. Ducky sees Yoga as very scientific and an important form of preventative medicine. Although now living in sunny Los Angeles, Ducky hails from neighbouring Glanmire and returns to Ireland frequently to host highly sought after Yoga retreats.
Ducky describes her Yoga teaching as "a mix of Vinyasa flow, interwoven with Forrest Yoga principles and peppered with a little Kundalini Yoga, this retreat however is for everyone – beginners and experienced Yogi’s alike. These wonderful retreats are for those who wish to explore the many different principals of yoga practices, for those looking for a relaxing, yet invigorating weekend away and a perfect introduction to yoga for those who have never practiced before.
After one of Ducky's weekend retreats we guarantee the benefits are rest, relaxation, a sense of ease and flexibility in body and mind and a freeing of our imagination and waking of our creative potential.
