Dagmara Jerzak

Dagmara is a certified Hatha Yoga & Pilates teacher and a contemporary dance artist. After receiving a BA (hons) degree in contemporary dance in 2012 she moved to Dublin, where she’s been working as a performer, choreographer, and dance teacher.

While working in the creative industry which can be very demanding and requires a lot of energy and effort, Dagmara discovered Yoga and meditation which allowed her to find more work-life balance. At first it allowed her to find some quiet space within the mind and gradually she discovered that daily yoga and meditation practice helped with overcoming daily stress. It also allowed for coming back to the present moment and it brought more joy to everyday life.

Dagmara teaches variety of movement based classes and workshops in contemporary dance, Hatha Yoga, Pilates and mindful movement. Dagmara draws from her vast experience to create unique classes that blend movement, breath and body-mind connection. Her focus is on alignment that supports healthy body, working within the limitations of our bodies and encouraging opening up of restricted spaces within the body in a kind and supportive environment. Dagmara's classes are creative, challenging and fun, sprinkled with flowing breath and sense of freedom within the mind and body.

Mich Piazza

 
Having trained in various forms of dance as a child and teenager, Mich discovered yoga after abandoning dance due to a back injury following a car accident. She was immediately attracted to its balance of mind, body and spirit and marvelled at the healing effects yoga had on her constant back pain.

During her yoga journey, Mich found herself attracted to the grace and precision of Pilates, in particular its focus on spinal alignment and the building of a strong, healthy core to help heal and alleviate back injuries.
 
Within a short of while of regular Pilates practice, all those remaining back pains from the car accident began to vanish until eventually she was pain-free. As a result, Mich became a devotee of the Pilates method and immediately after completing her yoga instructor training, trained to teach Pilates.
 
Mich has also trained in Pre and Post Natal Pilates, Pilates for Osteoporosis, Pilates for Spinal Injuries, Pilates with Props, Level 3 Advanced Matwork and Reformer 1 & 2.
 
In January 2013 she trained in BarreConcept which she found to be the perfect blend of all her great loves in life--ballet, yoga and Pilates. She went on to complete several other ballet barre training courses, including Pilates at the Barre.

Mich is also a qualified massage therapist, a Zumba Fitness Instructor and recently qualified in Pole Dance Fitness. She won the title of Pole Dance Ireland Princess 2015.

Andrea Mc McGee

 
Health and wellness has been a huge part of Andrea’s life from an early age. Born in London, Andrea trained in ballet before moving to Dublin where she competed in a variety of sports such as hockey, tennis, basketball and running.
 
After the birth of her first daughter in 2009, exercise became an integral part of her daily routine and helped her to cope with daily stresses. Pilates was not her first choice of exercise, however, after suffering from back pain following two pregnancies she quickly discovered what a powerful tool it was. Pilates complements all forms of exercise, helping you to slow down and become in complete control of every part of the body.
 
Andrea is qualified in pre- and postnatal, beginner to advanced Pilates, small equipment, Pilates for the ageing population, healing diastais rectus and barre concept. Andrea loves to learn and continues her education to update her skills.
 
Our Ballet Barre Workout combines ballet inspired postures with elements from yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Benefits include improved posture, coordination and flexibility while toning your arms, stomach, hips, thighs and glutes.
