My love for movement is unique and brings me great joy. I was born into a creative family and surrounded by music and dance from a young age, so I guess you could say it's in my blood. Throughout the last 14yrs I have lived and worked in Southern Ireland, Berlin and London as a professional dancer and teacher sharing my passion for movement on stage or in the studio with children and adults. I teach within the community on a continuous basis, offering bright, vibrant and accessible dance & yoga classes to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
Places I've studied - London Contemporary Dance School, UK, The Freestyle Yoga Project, UK & Tattvaa Yogashala Rishikesh, India.
I combine my yoga practice with my professional dance experience and thrive on teaching fluid, well-structured classes with a big focus on breath, space and mindful movement sequencing. I promote individuality in all areas of my work whether its classes, performance projects or workshops and always ask participants to be open, curious, creative and fully engaged with their own bodies.
