The RTE star has revealed that yoga helped her immensely during and after her battle with thyroid cancer in 2012.

The 37-year-old has since qualified as a yoga teacher, praising the benefits of the exercise.

“When I got into it, I wasn’t in a good place after cancer. I found it so good for the body and mind,” the Galway native told the Irish Sun.

“I bow my head to Western medicine — I wouldn’t be here without it — but I also think we need to look at how the mind and all these other stresses can impact our health.”

 The broadcaster said that she would love to combine her passion for television and yoga and create a programme about holistic healing.

“I’m looking to expand in all things yoga later this year. I’d love to do something with TV and yoga.”

“I’m the kind of person who would love to watch something like that — I’d love to do something on health from a holistic point of view.”

The Gaelgoir also said that “life is really good” with her boyfriend Cork Garda Damien O’Farrell, following her divorce from RTE producer Glen Mulcahy in 2008.
