Maggie May O’ Callaghan
Maggie May trained in Rishikesh, India to teach Hatha and Vinyasa Flow Yoga. This yoga promotes the gentle flow of movement through poses in synchrony with breath.
“My practice is enriched by my training in UL as a Psychotherapist and Psychologist.Through my class I hope to empower people to establish a sense of connection from breath to the movement of one’s bodies which extends to a sense of connection with the people around us – crucial attributes of mental wellness. I currently teach in AG Fitness in Bruff and am lucky to have a regular group of yogis. One of the biggest misconceptions about Yoga is that you have to be still and quiet, the opposite is true of our practice. It is rare that I teach a class in which laughter is not featured! I am very excited to be included as part of the line-up for this wellness day and look forward to meeting everyone! My class is open to beginners and all ages, absolutely no need to be able to touch your toes!”

A long time student of martial arts, Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Taoism, I teach the transformative power of presence through these practices.
In Qi Gong and Tai Chi, my primary teacher is Sifu Shi De Lon, a 31st generation Shaolin laymonk, who is also a PhD research fellow of medical science. In 2002, I began my training with Shi De Lon and was accepted in 2006 as a Shaolin Laymonk. I was given a Shaolin name Shi Xing Gao which means “aim high”. In Taoist alchemy and Qi Gong I have studied with Barry Spendlove, a senior universal healing Tao instructor, certified by Taoist master Mantak Chia. I teach regularly at various holistic centres in the West of Ireland, in counties Clare, Galway and Mayo. A lot of my work is with active retirement groups, one-to-one training, schools and community groups. I also teach overseas from time to time in Slovakia, Spain and the UK.
“I hold a diploma with distinction in Nutritional Therapy, and I am currently completing a Masters Degree in Personalized / Functional Nutrition. I practice Functional Medicine in my clinic in Limerick city, this entails finding and addressing root causes of any illness my clients are struggling with, not simply treating the symptoms. Functional medicine recognizes the interconnectedness of our systems and our individuality beyond genetic predispositions. With dietary and lifestyle changes, food supplements and herbal medicines, I tailor a menu plan suited to the individual’s needs and goals. I lecture Nutritional Therapy, act as a consultant with a integrative pharmaceutical company based in the UK and Ireland, and give talks on a wide range of subjects upon request, nationwide. I will talk about our “root”, the digestive system, how it influences our entire body and may be the underlying cause of many chronic illnesses and obesity, which is soon becoming an epidemic of this era.”
