For over 20 years Deirdre has been exploring, training, teaching and experiencing Yoga – initially with the Bihar School of Yoga in India where she trained and lived for almost 3 years exploring many different Yoga styles – Hatha, Bhakti, Jhana and Karma Yoga.
Deirdre trained further in Meditation and Buddhist Philosophy, living in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, Thai forest retreat centres and Yogic ashrams in Rishikesh. During that time she undertook many intensive 10-day silent meditation retreats over the years, and wishing to take her practice deeper, undertook three separate meditation retreats of over 3-months duration, one of which was under the guidance of teachers of the Dalai Lama.
In 2013 she created and developed her Deep Sleep Workshops and Trainings. This was initially in response to her own experience of restless, sleepless nights, and wanting to find a way through them without resorting to sleep medication. After finding her own way back to restful, deep sleep she decided to offer these solutions to anyone out there who was experiencing similar difficulties, and now runs her own Deep Sleep Clinic in Dun Laoghaire, offering individual consultations as well as workshops and on-line offerings.
