Great to meet you. I am Certified with YogaWorks, Los Angeles, California, since 2010. I hold a BA and an MA in Dance (1999/2018) and have worked in the movement, and health and fitness sectors, for all my professional life. I've been teaching Yoga, Pilates, Barre and Body Conditioning for over 20 years and it's been a completely, wonderful journey so far.
I'm from Ireland. Dublin is my first home. My name is Niamh, which is an Irish name. It's actually pronounced Neeve, because in the Irish language the last 'mh' is pronounced like a 'v'.
Throughout my career, I have travelled with my teaching work; all over Europe, and to the USA. It's been an incredible experience up till now, very awakening. I have been invited to be a teacher at various festivals and events, as well as coaching Yoga to the Irish Rubgy team, back home in Dublin.
I am currently a lecturer at the IAB Performing Arts Institute, in Barcelona, Spain. I teach on the BA course there; Body Conditioning, Yoga and Pilates. The facilities are gorgeous and it's a total joy to teach the actors and dancers studying there.
I've been teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga for 11 years. I've taught in many Yoga Studios; in Ireland, Spain and California, as well as in my own settings. I've been a teacher of Body Work and movement in a number of Dance Centres, and, I've worked as a trainer for Professional Dance Companies. Pilates, Barre and Body Conditioning are an important part of my work and I often combine these practices to create interesting and upbeat classes. Designing classes and sequences is super exciting to me, my dance background always lends a hand in that.
I am now based in Sitges, Spain, where I live with my 8 year old daughter. She is stunning, smart and takes after her mother! She dances in my Creative Dance class that I run for kids and she often comes to help me with my personal Yoga and Pilates practices by massaging my feet, or, better still; lying on top of me!
All my life's experiences of anatomy, human movement and body work merge to create your Vinyasa Flow Yoga, and, Ballet Barre Pilates classes here at Udemy. I wholeheartedly look forward to working with you and sharing the transformative moving-practices energy with you.
Teaching is my passion. Teaching is my joy. My gift to you is this. I hope to share this passion and joy with you, here at Udemy.
See you on the mat real soon,
