Teachers

Dave Regan

 

Dave has been practicing meditation and mindfulness for over fifteen years and this led him towards yoga. He immediately noticed the benefits a regular yoga practice had on his meditation and everyday life.

 

Dave completed his Yoga Teacher Training in 2018 with Yoga and Pilates, Malaga. Dave also comes from a nutrition and culinary background, and this is very much a part of his holistic approach to overall wellbeing.  He has also completed numerous mindfulness and meditation courses, most recently in 2018 in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction in the Mindfulness Clinic, Merrion Square. 

 

Dave's classes focus on a combination of strong slow flows, which allow you to take the time to focus on both your mind and your body. 

 

Dee O’Hagan

Alongside her 200hr teacher training, Dee O’Hagan trained in meditation and yin yoga, as well as intuitive eating counselling. Dee has also studied education and psychology. As a psychology post-grad, Dee considers herself to be a bit of a nerd when it comes to the  the mind-body connection. She views yoga as a powerful tool for learning how each of us ticks and works with each of her students from a place of compassion first and foremost. It was this sentiment that led her to go deeper with yin yoga training, a beautiful practice that allows the space for self-enquiry while teaching us how to find a sense of ease and

balance.

 

Dee brings together everything she has learned to help people face understand and quieten the harsh inner critic that takes the wheel all too often. Dee believes that now more than ever, the planet needs people who are compassionate towards themselves and who can go out there and show that compassion to others.

 

Other things that make Dee happy: sea-salty hair, belly laughs with lovely

people, exploring new places, good food and having a dalmatian that’s too big for her lap, on her lap.

 

 

Gill Costello

Gill Costello completed her teacher training in 2013 while in McLeod Ganj, Northern India. Looking back, Gill feels yoga chose her, rather than she chose yoga. Since then yoga has become more and more central in her life, belief system and ultimately her dharma (life’s purpose).

 

Gill has been teaching yoga in Morocco for the last three winters where she has met some incredible teachers from around the world, along with people trying yoga for the first time and many characters in between.

 

Her classes have a strong foundation based on building strength in the body and awareness in the mind. While moving through a dynamic flow, Gill invites you to stay connected to the breath, to quieten the mind and bring your focus inwards. Detaching from the rest of the world and simplifying down to just the present moment.  Her classes always finish with a yoga nidra to ensure you leave feeling calm, collected and centred.

 

Gill is The Space Between’s studio manager, so expect to see her pottering around. Never one to shy away from a chat, feel free to ask her for anything you need. She’s always there to help. Find her online @gillcyoga.

 

Hannah Ryan

 

Hannah recently completed a RYS 200 hour Teacher Training with 'The Art of Teaching'. She describes it as ‘the most wonderful and life changing experience’. Hannah fell in love with yoga three years ago and it's been a pivotal part of her life ever since. 

 

Hannah believes yoga gives you the freedom to move, to understand you body, your mind and to form connections between the two. She believes yoga gives you space to slow down, and take time out for yourself. 

 

Hannah teaches a grounding, stabilising vinyasa flow focusing on moving slowly through transitions and cultivating full body awareness. Blending yin and yang so that you can build strength and stamina, while taking time to nourish yourself. Hannah’s classes allow you to establish a sense of flexibility in both your body and your mind. Utilising pranayama and other breathing techniques to build a relationship with your breath and to help create a solid foundation by which you can constantly move forward with your practise, forever learning and evolving. 

 

Hannah aims to create a soothing and calming energy that can be picked up and translated into the practice to help soften the body and relax the mind.  She wants to create the space for every student to listen to their bodies, to pay attention to what it is they need in each and every practice.

home. Yoga soon transformed her busy life. It became less stressful and she found stillness and peace on her mat. After her return home to Ireland Jane continued her practice under the guidance of Lalit Kumar for 5 years.

Jen Doran’s classes are centered around the concept of connection. Connection to the body and mind, to the people around us and to nature. Yoga has helped Jen deepen this connection in various area of her life and she loves being able to share this with others through the practice. 

Jen has been practicing and studying yoga for 10 years now and completed her 400 hours of teacher training in 2017.  One of her big passions is sharing with people how to create a sustainable practice for themselves, allowing them to deeply listen to, connect and live in tune with their own nature.
