Shirine has participated in many intensive silent retreats both in Ireland and abroad and has studied with many inspiring teachers who have supported her on her path. Over the years, she has engaged in Buddhist meditation retreats and study in Northern India and Nepal. She continues to return there on a regular basis and this has supported her to significantly deepen in her own personal meditation practice.

This resonates in her approach to teaching mindfulness. Shirine is also a fully qualified yoga teacher who has studied intensively with many reputable yoga teachers in India and at home. She has an interest in the application of mindfulness meditation in yoga, which is related to more traditional Indian Hatha yoga practices.
