Living the dream

Published

SINCE she opted to leave the rat race and pursue her dream, Killarney native Faela Horgan has not looked back.

Faela took up yoga 10 years ago and inspired by the impact the discipline made on her life, decided to train as a yoga instructor. “I recently moved back to my home town of Killarney after spending the last decade in Dublin where I worked as a TV producer,” said Faela. “Teaching yoga is definitely my dream job. It’s about sharing it as it’s made such a positive impact on my life.”

She has won an enviable reputation for her yoga classes in Dublin and now more recently in Aghadoe, Killarney. Faela teaches classes suitable for men and women of all ages, designed to strengthen and tone muscles, regulate the body’s energy, and reduce stress. “I teach a Hatha-style yoga class which is an alignment-oriented practice that consists of physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), mindfulness and relaxation (savasana),” said Faela.

“Each session has a theme to help you explore postures, appropriate modifications and variations.” The Yoga For Beginners class is specifically created for students that are new to yoga as well as those looking to get back into their yoga practice after a break. Here you can learn the foundations of Hatha yoga without feeling overwhelmed or confused.

The drop-in rate for all group classes is €14, but you can enjoy six classes for just €70. Faela also teaches affordable private yoga sessions. “Whether someone is a complete beginner, suffering from an injury, or just wants to deepen their practice, I collaborate with each client to create a yoga programme that is tailored to their needs and lifestyle, creating a yoga experience to address exactly what their body, mind and soul need at that time.”

Semi-private sessions are also available for those who would prefer to practice with a small group of friends or family. “My purpose is to help people feel good in their bodies and create greater ease in their lives,” said Faela.

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
