Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Wellness goes beyond 'good health'. It is a sense of balance that encompasses body, mind and spirit. While working with my clients, I encourage them to go beyond their specific goals and achieve an overall state of wellness. I assist them by bringing together:
effective, safe and complete workout complemented by nutrition advice
simple mind training techniques
relaxation and meditation exercises
life coaching tools
Please see below for a selection of classes and coaching sessions I currently offer. If you have a specific requirement, please do not hesitate to contact me directly
Personal Coaching Sessions (Wellbeing & Fitness, Nutrition) I am a certified Wellbeing & Fitness, Nutrition and Life Coach. A coach is a professional who is qualified to guide you through any health style changes you wish to make. A coach empowers you to make those changes by encouraging you to use your own abilities. Whatever the change you wish to make, whatever your goal (big or small), I can help you. Please feel free to contact me directly and discuss your requirements. As an experienced Wellbeing & Fitness professional, I design safe and effective workout programmes to achieve your health and fitness goals. My programmes are always personalized and designed around my clients' life and work schedule. I am also a qualified Nutrition advisor. I love food, particularly when it is associated with a social occasion: a dinner with friends or a celebration with family. Food affects us physically and emotionally. As a nutrition advisor I help people developing healthy eating habit for better physical, mental and emotional health. Strict diets and excessive food restrictions can be harmful to people's health and are not sustainable in the long term. Creating permanent healthy eating habits requires food variety , balancing calories and nutrients and taking into account one's lifestyle. Being a nutrition advisor in a multicultural society, I also believe in respecting one's cultural background.. There are healthy options in every country's foods!
Yoga & Pilates classes I have been teaching Yoga and Pilates at some of Dublin's finest health clubs and studios since 2010. I am a Sivananda qualified Yoga teacher. I have trained in ashrams and yoga centres in Europe and India. I practice and teach a traditional form of Yoga. I believe Yoga is more than simple muscle stretching. A complete Yoga practice should also aim at maintaining a healthy spine, increasing body awareness and mental focus and expanding individual consciousness. The result is a supple, strong body, a calm, focused mind and deep self-awareness. I am also an experienced Pilates instructor.Pilates is often associated with Yoga (and even combined in Yogalates classes). However, while Yoga and Pilates share some common elements (they are both body movement disciplines, after all), the focus of Pilates is on strengthening the core muscles. Through target exercises, I educate class participants on strengthening and activating core muscles to support the spine, achieve a healthy posture and prevent injuries.
Argentine Tango classes and events I teach Argentine Tango in Ireland and abroad. I have performed in many venues around the country and I am the founder and artistic director of the International Tango Festival in Ireland. You can read more about this here. I teach dancers of all levels. Argentine Tango is different from many partner dances because it is an improvised dance. It happens in the moment and requires a strong connection between dance partners. This is what makes it unique and special. So special that it is now danced by millions around the world! Being a social dance based on improvisation and a leading-following dynamic, Argentine is perfectly suitable for team building sessions and leadership workshops as it encourages participants to discover and develop the soft skills required to positively interact within a group. We design tailored workshops to suit your organization's needs. We are the first organization to run such workshops in Ireland. Our facilitators uniquely combine a long experience as Tango instructors with an understanding of group dynamics and business organizations. For details of Tango classes and events, please see my Tango website
Corporate Wellbeing & Fitness events I offer fitness sessions, Pilates, meditation and yoga sessions, nutrition seminars, team building sessions to suit all needs within organizations of any size. I can arrange all-inclusive well-being packages designed around the organization's specific goals.Please contact me to discuss your specific requirements.
