Shantie Tedjai-Carroll


"Namastè🙏🏽 It was pregnancy that introduced me to Yoga about 20 years ago. I was living in Sydney, Australia at the time and without the safety net of family or friends.    I felt that Yoga might fill that gap, teach me how to move this growing body and make new friends at the same time. Yoga offered me health and strength, a welcoming, supportive and loving community, a home away from home. Yoga taught me how to cope better, to be more myself, to appreciate and respect my body and to believe that I could accomplish anything as long as I tried. It was just what I needed living so far away from home and feeling so vulnerable.

I’ve always shared my love for Yoga with others and managed to send quite a few friends down the Yoga path. I am Dutch (from Indian extraction) and moved to Cork from Sydney in 2004. After I had my second child I started going to Diane Howley’s Vinyasa flow classes. And that’s when I was properly bitten by the Yoga bug." Shantie.
