About Paddy Mcgrath

Paddy discovered yoga in 1990 at the age of 29. Her initial training in Yoga was with Yogacharya Venkesth of Mysore (backbend master ) but she also studied with other senior teachers in Iyengar and Astanga vinyasa both in India and Australia. In 1995 she became a certified Iyengar teacher. In 1997 she began seeking for other masters of different styles and teaching yoga. Her passion in yoga or quest put her in contact with many interesting and well known yogis such as Angela Framer and Victor Van Kooten (Greece ) John Stirk (UK). In 2005, she met her main source of mastery and inspiration Diane Long (www. dianelongyoga.com ) Diane had worked closely with Vanda Scaravelli for twenty four years.

Diane’s influence and Scaravelli approach led to Paddy’s quest and passion now becoming more about moving from the spine, and finding freedom in the spine, especially in the context of practicing yoga.

More recently Paddy has begun to make trips to Japan to study with Martial art masters and other masters of gravity and efficient movement. Paddy brings all this and her unwavering years of personal practice to help students find their own individual way to a real spinal freedom unfettered by styles or dogma.
Paddy is now based in Chiang Mai Thailand and teaches workshops and retreats and TTC course modules in Thailand, Australia, Cambodia , Malaysia and every summer in Europe.
