Aparna Shukla


I am very passionate about teaching Mindfulness and Meditation to those ready to transform their lives and experience more peace, joy, and clarity of mind. Watching people grow and evolve from within through the practice of Mindfulness is what gives me the most satisfaction. My slogan is “My Mind My Friend” and can be achieved through a regular practice of Mindfulness.
I have done my MBSR Teacher Training from Mindful Academy Solterreno.
My journey actively began after learning Raj Yoga (Yoga of the mind called Royal Yoga) and completing a course in Therapeutic uses of Mindfulness from the Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2015. At this point, I knew I wanted to teach Mindfulness and took a course on reflective practice from UCD in Ireland and my project work was on the Mindfulness workshop I facilitated for Richmond Education Centre. Continuous practice development is my commitment and learning never stops through various courses such as 
“working well Mindfully” and “Self Compassion”. I am also a Yoga Alliance certified Yoga teacher from Durga Ireland and love teaching Mindful Yoga.

My qualification as a Nurse & a Midwife and Masters's degree in Nursing in 2001 and my experience of serving in various colleges & hospitals support me in understanding Mind, body, illnesses and suffering. I have completed the Parenthood facilitation from University College Cork in 2012.  
I regularly facilitate Mindfulness workshops for the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisations Professional Development Center since 2015. I have facilitated Mindfulness sessions for HSE staff, Administration workers, IT professionals, Industrial relations officers, Physiotherapists, Health Care Assistants, Old age care workers, Journalists, PhD students, and the general public.
I was born in India and moved to work in Ireland in 2002, which puts me in a unique position to understand the mindsets of the Eastern and Western populace and combine scientific knowledge with ancient wisdom to teach how to be more present in your life.

Great. My intention was to deepen my own practice as well as to take initial steps in learning how to pass on the possibility of the gift of mindfulness to others, and both of those intentions were met.
