Hello! I'm Colette a vibrant 48-year-old navigating life with a passion for holistic well-being. My journey began in the corporate world, spanning nearly two decades, until a transformative shift led me to the world of fitness and holistic health.
In 2006, I immersed myself in fitness instruction, earning credentials from NCEHS. What started as a quest for smarter training evolved into teaching Interval Training classes to my colleagues during the week. Fridays became a serene end to their busy workweeks with my popular Yin Yoga classes.
For years, I shared the serenity of Yin Yoga at River Holistic in Raheny, fostering a warm community. When the world locked down, I seamlessly transitioned to online platforms, continuing to inspire movement and mindfulness.
My connection to holistic healing runs deep. From a young age, I witnessed the profound impact of Reflexology on my mum during her battles with cancer. Inspired by her Reflexologist who eased her pain enormously, I became one myself in 2014, subsequently dedicating time to volunteer with ARC Cancer Care on South Circular Road.
In 2018, life threw a curveball when I discovered a lump in my right breast. The initial shock turned into a triumphant journey to recovery. Five years later, I stand cancer-free and invigorated. I've made it my mission to share the lessons learned, providing insights into wellness that extend beyond the physical. My motto remains to be "If you don't make time for your wellness, you may be forced to make time for your illness."
Believing in mind-body synergy, I advocate for a comprehensive approach. My diverse offerings include online weight training with HIIT-style active rest classes, thoughtfully curated yoga sessions for a unique practice, and the therapeutic touch of Reflexology. With varied sequences and themes, you'll never get bored on your wellness journey with me.
For the past couple of years, I've had the privilege of collaborating with DCC, where I've been dedicated to offering a diverse range of classes to various community groups. Among these, my chair yoga and chair fitness classes tailored for older adults became an immediate hit, with a substantial waiting list forming quickly. Witnessing their progress and the improvement in their yoga practice has been an incredibly rewarding experience. It's heartening to contribute to their well-being and see the positive impact that holistic practices can have on their lives. I'm a firm believer in "It's not important how long we live, but how well we live."
Welcome to my space—a platform where I share insights on yoga, HIIT, workshops, reflexology, Doterra oils, natural products, and reflections on my journey with cancer. Join me on the path to balance and holistic health.
