Background

I graduated in 2016 in BSc Psychology from Ulster University, Northern Ireland. I then moved to Edinburgh to study MSc Physical Activity for Health (2016-2017) at The Physical Activity for Health Research Centre (PAHRC), University of Edinburgh with an interest in yoga for health. Now my interests and research areas are yoga in schools for all youth populations and mental health and cognitive outcomes. 

I am also a qualified yoga teacher (200hr yoga teacher training) within Edinburgh, teaching at Hot Yoga Edinburgh and East Side Yoga since 2017.
