5 Week Baby Massage Course

This class is taught by:

Michelle E Egan

Michelle was introduced to yoga while on a tennis scholarship in America in the mid 90’s. At the time yoga was largely unheard of in Ireland but she recognised its benefits to athletes in prevention of injury and also building up strength and confidence within. It was several years later while working in media in London that Michelle was reintroduced to yoga. She made the decision to train as a yoga instructor and completed her training in Hatha yoga in 2006.

Michelle’s teaching places emphases on a deep connection with the breath, stillness and clarity of the mind, strength, balance and a mindful flow of movement. She teaches dynamic and gentle classes depending on the needs of her classes Michelle is also a qualified prenatal, mum and baby yoga and kids yoga teacher. Her mum and
baby classes in Ranelagh are divided between mum and baby. For the mums we focus on rebuilding core strength, toning pelvic floor muscles and strengthening up the lower back and shoulders. We work with the breath and, when allowed!, even enjoy some quiet relaxation. The babies then enjoy some wonderful hip openers and stretching followed by songs and lots of fun.
