Tricia trained in Bikram yoga in LA in 2002 and she has been teaching hot yoga throughout Ireland and as far afield as Thailand and South Africa since 2003. in 2016 she trained in Fierce Grace Yoga, another form of hot yoga.
Having badly injured her back in a horse riding accident in 1997, she was told that she would have to regularly visit osteopaths or chiropractors for the rest of her life. That was the case until a friend told her of the amazing benefits of yoga. After trying various different forms of Hatha Yoga, which is the most common type of yoga practised in the western world, bringing you to your peak of fitness both mentally and physically, she discovered Bikram Yoga the original hot yoga. She decided to concentrate on hot yoga as this form of hatha yoga focuses on strengthening the spine and knees in particular.
We all know that if you have a healthy strong spine you are well on the road to physical fitness as our spine is our core. Lower back pain is one of the main reasons for absenteeism at work. So having noticed the difference yoga made to her back—no more trips to the osteopath were required—Tricia decided to train as a yoga teacher and pass on the its amazing healing benefits to others. With her 2 styles of hot yoga training and her many years of experience teaching yoga Tricia has now developed her own class sequences giving a choice of 4 different hot yoga classes at Hot Yoga Athlone.
