From Dr Sri Radha Sharon
…As a Yogi, I am on the mat or cushion every day. Be it to stretch, mediate, chant, pray. I’m either doing my own self-study, or sharing with others, listening, observing us all as both teachers and students. All around, I am a Yogi through and through, and I was long before I ever understood the title or had the remotest interest in it.
I have taught Yoga Teachers now for many years and spend many hours studying and helping the GGYC yogic community to help itself.
I’m a little older now but because its so topical at present I decided to take a trip down memory lane about my own menopause journey to see if it might help others chill a little, stay on track and not lose faith or focus too much. Too much– I love that term.
At the height of the strangeness that was Menopause for me, it often felt Too Much.
The college was organically grown and originally founded in 2006 in Co. Cork by Sharon O’Neill BCL. Sharon taught mainly in schools and for adult education programs and then opened a Yoga Studio in 2010. There she offered classes to the general public for all levels. That little cottage studio was a great success, so Golden Glow Yoga got bigger over time and we loved our years practicing weekly with amazing people. Eventually owning three different studios in Cork and Carrigaline in Cork county, Golden Glow Yoga College evolved and we headed to Cork city in 2015 and then also to Galway. Since 2013 we also focused on providing high quality Yoga Teacher Training from Foundation to Senior level. There was a growing need to have more classes with our signature styles and routines and we began assisting our long term and advanced students to become teachers themselves.
Our GGYC Managing Director and Founder is affectionately known to thousands as Sri (meaning Highest or Holy -pronounced Shri) Radha (Rad – ha – The favorite wife or love of Lord Krishna ) Sharon, and professionally as Dr Sri Radha Sharon O’Neill BCL Hons PhD Yoga. Sri Radha is originally from Cornwall, but her Father was Irish and she moved to Ireland with her family of five children over 25 years ago.
Even that term of ‘Management’ implies I have choice. That it is in my own hands. That point I think is the first delusion – my potential arrogance.
