Paul Hardiman

We love Paul's humor, curiosity and natural wisdom through which he shares the teachings of yoga. His sincerity of being prevents us from taking ourselves too seriously, and he invites a rare quality of delightful accepting focus.

Paul did his first yoga class in Seattle in 1994. He had previously studied and practiced martial arts and represented Ireland internationally in all styles of Karate, but then shifted his focus to yoga. He continued his practice of yoga in Los Angeles in a variety of styles having fun with teachers Steve Ross and Kathryn Budig, eventually leading to his teacher training with Yogaworks in Santa Monica under the guidance of Malachi Melville, Birgitte Kristen, Anne Van Valkenburg, and Colleen Garrity.

He has expanded his interests to Thai Yoga Massage (commonly called lazy man's yoga), introduced to him by Saul David Raye and has continued his studies with Krishnataki. He is a certified Thai Yoga Massage therapist.

Paul lives in Galway, Ireland with his wife and three children. Their yoga studio, An Seomra Yoga, is dedicated to sharing yoga practices to help live happier lives. His classes tend to be strong and energetic with a Qi Gong influence, and always with a light hearted approach.
