Mich has been a lover of all forms of dance since she was a child but gave up dancing following a car accident. On her quest to find relief from the chronic pain she was experiencing, and keen to get back into body movement, she discovered yoga.

Mich has trained in Pre and Post Natal Pilates, Pilates for Osteoporosis, Pilates for Spinal Injuries, Pilates with Props, Level 3 Advanced Mat Work, Reformer 1 & 2, Pilates at the Barre and BarreConcept. In 2014, and eager to get back into dancing, Mich stumbled across a pole fitness class and a new addiction was born. She did the Xpert Pole Fitness Level 1&2 training in 2016 (and received the Active IQ Level 2 QCF Award in instructing) and in 2017 she trained in dance methodology Liquid Motion. Mich frequently takes part in pole competitions and has taken home gold in Pole Dance Ireland Princess, first place in Pole Theatre Ireland (Comedy) and a silver and a bronze in the All Ireland Pole Dance Championships. In her spare time she practices chair acrobatics (but don’t try that at home!) and is a dedicated student of Lyra (aerial hoop) and circus trapeze.
