David Scullion is a devoted practitioner of integrative healing. He focuses on the interconnectivity of mental, structural, emotional, and spiritual union with the understanding that when we give attention to any one thing, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
At the foothills of self-enquiry and his own restorative process, David pursued his curiosity venturing into the remote depths of the Peruvian Amazon to engage in a penetrative exploration of the mind. Confined in isolation under the guidance of Master plants and highly revered shaman Orlando Chujandama Huazanga, this rigorous routine transpired into a pivotal shift of consciousness.
Anchoring the heights of this experience and expanding in its teachings, David began to practice Vipassana meditation; the foundational cultivation of mind body awareness. This was met with intensive study of Ashtanga Yoga; the traditional study of eight limbs of yoga as taught by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, synchronising the breath with a progressive sequence of postures.
The multidisciplinary approach to these unwavering practices has been the fundamental groundwork for David’s personal development and the richness of understanding that translates to his professional teaching.
After 10 years of training and teaching throughout Australia, Indonesia and South East Asia, he is returning to his home land of Ireland where he studied martial arts from a young age specialising in Brazilian Jujitsu and competing at the highest level in UK MMA for six years.
He Currently trains at Straight Blast Gym in Dublin.
He also qualified with the Royal Life Saving Society and led the first team of coastal lifesavers in Ireland.
Grace Tempany is a yoga teacher, teacher trainer, and secondary school teacher of French and Music.
Grace’s yoga teaching is deeply functional, grounded in a finely-tuned understanding of the physical purpose of the poses, and moving on into the energetic, emotional, mental layers of the practice from that key starting point. Her teaching stems from a keen awareness of anatomical singularities and meridian theory, coupled with a deep focus on cultivating greater awareness and compassion in her students.
Grace believes that our ability to connect deeply with ourselves and with others lies at the core of our understanding. She believes one can only hold space as a teacher when in humble acceptance of how little we can truly ‘know’ for sure. Holding space for others to dive deep with their own practice and inner work is a privilege.
She is passionate about finding a place for yoga and meditation within the mainstream education system. She is finally getting somewhere in this regard and will be teaching yoga, meditation and philosophy in school from September 2019. Yay for the little victories!
