Stasys Solido
Stasys is Holistic, Deep tissue, sports and orthopedic massage therapist. He has always been an active person taking part in a varied range of sports and events. He trains a lot, to help keep up his fitness levels so he can meet most demanding challenges in life. He loves football, cycling, basketball, tennis and any adventurous activities that might come his way.
Stasys studied through the Holistic College Dublin which is a registered provider for F.E.T.A.C. and I.T.E.C. awards and qualified with Diploma in Holistic massage.
Throughout his time in the fitness and massage industry Stasys felt he wanted to help clients more. He learned through articles, experienced trainers and athletes how valuable sports massage could be to them and the general public with its many benefits ranging from relieving stress, strain, tension, postural imbalances and chronic pain as well as preventing injury and enhancing rehabilitation.

For that reason Stasys qualified with Diploma in Sports massage with Distinction.

Stasys studied advanced orthopedic massage, a unique multidisciplinary approach to chronic pain and sports injuries.

The benefits of Sports Massage Therapy are becoming more widely recognised and understood by the general public as a valuable form of treatment. Sports Massage can be applied to everyone and not just sports people.

Stasys takes an entirely different approach to treatment of chronic pain than what most massage practitioners are currently using in their practice.
Conducting a full musculoskeletal examination, Stasys will assess the body’s functionality, examining the muscles to work toward a thorough diagnosis of what may be causing any discomfort. An accompanying deep tissue, sports and orthopedic massage will strive to get recovery going via the realignment muscle layers, loosening of connective tissues, and relief of physical tension.
Prior to dealing with chronic pain in any other area of the body, Stasys addresses pelvic stabilization techniques. Deep pelvic contractions can cause distortions throughout the entire body. This is why pelvic stabilization is the key to structural balance.

To maintain structural balance around each joint in our bodies, Stasys teaches the client to stretch chronically shortened muscle groups and gives precise exercises to strengthen overstretched or chronically weak opposing muscle groups.

Sibylle Dallmann
At the heart of every one of my classes lies the intention to inspire you to live life with courage, openness and integrity. It is my hope that each class in its own unique way will offer you a space to slow down, digest life and re-discover the ways in which your own potential is ready to express itself into life.
I believe in a supportive, down-to-earth style of teaching. My classes are slow, precise and meditative. They are physically challenging yet deeply nourishing. I place a high focus on integrating and refining movement, breath and attention to access and birth the beauty that lies within each and every one of us.
I am a student of yoga, philosophy and life for as long as I can remember. I’ve been teaching yoga for the past 12 years throughout which my approach has changed, grown and developed quite organically. However, what has never changed is my awe for life, movement, the human condition and the beauty that can be brought forth from it all.
I’ve co-created the 200hrs foundational yoga teacher training “The Art of Teaching” to help aspiring teachers develop their teaching skills and find their own voice of teaching. I host a range of national and international retreats yearly, called SOULFIRE, designed to help you digest life fully and get clarity on what’s truly important to you. I facilitate workshops for teachers and students nationwide with the intention to develop a more nuanced experience and understanding of the practice. I’m the author of “THE SUNDAY NUDGE” a selection of written word articles with the intention to help you transition your practice into your life off the mat.

Graces focus in Pilates in sport and has a range of athlete clients including horses riders, golfers, GAA and Rugby players.

Bev Porrino
My introduction to yoga was accidental, I was a keen athlete in my 20s. I competed in running and cycling events and through over training, I sustained a bad injury. I attended a few yoga classes and I gradually realised that yoga was much more than I imagined. For the first time in many years I didn’t have to compete with myself or anybody else. I went to class a few times per week and when I returned to athletics I continued with my yoga practice. It made all the difference to my athletic performance. That was a pleasant surprise. As I’ve matured, I’ve become more aware of how good my body has been to me and so I made a conscious decision to be more respectful to it. I have practised and studied yoga in many countries but I became a yoga teacher eight years ago whilst living in Amsterdam. I initially studied and practised Ashtanga but I love the freedom and creativity that Vinyasa flow allows. I currently teach Hatha, Vinyasa flow and Pilates. I’m grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing teachers throughout the years. I respect the ancient traditions of yoga but I also like alternative modern influences. I don’t feel out of place in a formal Ashtanga practice -despite my rebellious hips. I like to chant, I can sweat with the best in hot yoga, trance dance on a beach with Shiva Rea, realign myself with Iyengar, laughing yoga is good for the soul, but my favourite practice is the one I do every night before I sleep, it’s called pyjama pranayama. Hope to share some asana soon.

Deirdre O'Connor
Deirdre O Connor, Holistic Sleep Therapist, Yoga Dip, Craniosacral Therapist CST-T, CST Paedriatics DTR movement Dip, and Advanced

For over 20 years I have been exploring, training, teaching and experiencing Yoga – initially with the Bihar School of Yoga in India where I trained and lived for almost 3 years exploring many different Yoga styles – Hatha, Bhakti, Jhana and Karma Yoga.
I trained further in Meditation and Buddhist Philosoply, living in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, Thai forest retreat centres and Yogic ashrams in Rishikesh . During that time I undertook many intensive 10-day silent meditation retreats over the years, and wishing to take my practice deeper, undertook three separate meditation retreats of over 3-months duration , one of which was under the guidance of teachers of the Dalai Lama.
My deep love of movement and rests on my faith in our ability to foster a natural self-balancing and healing awareness in ourselves.
My own awareness in this capacity grew exponentially through a four-year advanced training with Dancing The Rainbow. This training was the ground for all my future work and taught me more about embodiment and being present than any previous trainings had up to that point.
It taught me that Yoga is not about doing the poses perfectly but rather showed me the necessity for slowly releasing and undoing the places in my body that remained tight, painful and downright grumpy! And doing this is a way that my body loves rather than any prescriptive idea of ‘what would be good for me’.
After my training I continued to be mentored by my teacher, Lani O’Hanlon, for a further two years, while assisting on their two year training. I spent a further two years with this deep body based exploration working alongside my teacher and mentor, as an assistant teacher.
My current teachings are based in a merging of the traditional yoga teachings and the intuitive awareness of what our bodies and minds need to heal and replenish themselves. Having trained also in Massage, Homeopathy and Craniosacral Therapy I have a strong basis in therapies which promote this awareness.
Further trainings with Shiva Rea and Twee Merrigan, who both embody this way of teaching Yoga, has deepened my own experience and has shown me many ways to encourage the body and mind to come to a place of calm and deep rest.
Over the years , different forms of movement have allowed me to relax deeply in the moment, and to undercover the places of holding and resistance in my body and psyche. The practice of 5 rhythms movement meditation has sustained me many times, as has the practices of Movement Medicine, the work of Ya’cov and Susannah Khan , and as well as attending workshops in both I continually draw inspiration from these wonderfully playful and exploratoty methods .
Lately I have been inspired by the teaching of Thomas Hanna, and his work of Somatic Movement. With its roots in Feldenkrais movement, Somatics has added a new understanding to how our psyche can hold patterns of anxiety and resistance in the body – and more importantly how we can release these old patterns. I have completed the initial stage of my training in Clinical Somatics and have been introducing Somatic Movement into my classes and my individual work with clients.
Hanna Somatics have been a life changer for me as it has allowed me to access deeper layers of tension, that didn’t seem to be touched by my Yoga practice.
In 2013 I created and developed my Deep Sleep Workshops and Trainings. This was initially in response to my own experience of restless, sleepless nights, and wanting to find a way through them without resorting to sleep medication. After finding my own way back to restful, deep sleep I decided to offer these solutions to anyone out there who was experiencing similiar difficulties, and now run my own Deep Sleep Clinic in Dun Laoghaire, offering individual consultations as well as workshops and on-line offerings. (
For myself, I continue to practice and train in Yoga, Somatics, and Craniosacral Therapy, simply because all of these wonderful practices make me feel happy and at ease in my body and mind. In many ways and at different times they have been real life-savers. Yoga and exploratory Somatic movement have turned my anxiety into contentment, and has allowed the stiff, tight places in my body and mind to melt and release so that I feel good inside and out.
Ruthe Burke
Ruthe first took up Satyananda Yoga as a teenager in Galway with Swami Shraddhamurti Saraswati, and found a gift for life. She completed 500 hours RYT training with Yoga Therapy Ireland in 2013, and advanced training in Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga in May 2014. In the same year, she qualified as a Pilates teacher, and Somatics Coach.
Her classes focus on slow, deep inner core work, fun arm balances, and an alignment-based approach to help clients move more easily, develop core strength and stay pain-free.

As a Mum of three, she understands the needs of Pre- and Postnatal Mums, and is inspired by the babies that she meets in her class!

Áine Fortune

I first discovered Yoga in Australia in the year 2000 and though I had always engaged in physical exercise, I knew straight away that this was something different – something more than just physical movements. The connection I felt between body, mind & spirit was exactly what I had been searching for and it brought me home to myself. Since then, Yoga has had a profound influence on my life and I look for Yoga (Union of Body, Mind and Breath) everywhere – both on and off the mat.

Over the past fourteen years, I have practised a number of different styles of Yoga from classical Hatha to Iyengar and Astanga. Most recently, I have been exploring the world of Somatic Movement and in my own practice I find that gentle Somatic movements preceding Asanas (Yoga postures) allow for greater release of tension in the body.

Following a 500-hour Yoga Alliance-certified training over a two-year period from 2010 to 2012, I received my teaching qualification from Yoga Therapy Ireland ( where one of the core beliefs is that Yoga is for everyone, whatever their age or physical ability. This is something in which I whole-heartedly believe. I have seen the many benefits of Yoga practice in all aspects of life (physical, mental & spiritual) and this inspires me, both in my own practice and in my teaching. After my primary teacher training, I undertook an additional training with Yoga Therapy Ireland in 2013 and gained my certification to teach Yoga for Pregnancy.

I recently completed a 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training Course with Lisa Petersen ( and Dave Curtis (, which has served to deepen both my personal practice and my understanding of what it is to teach Yoga. I regularly attend workshops, retreats and classes with internationally respected teachers such as Amy Matthews, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Donna Farhi.

My practice has brought me to many wonderful teachers, each of whom has given me the gift of their knowledge and experience. I enjoy sharing this precious gift with others.

Elisa Falco

I strongly believe the practice of yoga is learning how to love yourself and that yoga is for everybody. I start practicing yoga when I was pregnant as I needed to find again that union between body, mind and soul. That was eight years ago in Yoga Dublin Studio; there, in the last few years, I practiced Vinyasa flow and Anusara Yoga and I still do it. With teaching in my genes, I teach kids since I was a teenager myself because I love teaching and I love kids. When I realized I love yoga too, I decided to put the three things together: I completed my 200h yoga teacher training and specialized in yoga for kids 2 years ago. I teach kids since then and I cover adult classes for my favourite teachers. I like going to other’s teachers classes and breathe that unique atmosphere in which teachers and students are blended together and at ease with each other. I like taking part in yoga workshops and I feel privileged I studied with the likes of Jodie Rufty (USA) and Donna Farhi. I also attended the Somatic Movement Education Training with Lisa Petersen so when I teach, I focus a lot about posture and alignment, and how to give back the body the ability to cure itself. I also believe that with food you can cure yourself: food is medicine and I share this passion about cooking with my little girl. Being a mother just reinforced my need of a healthy lifestyle and my environmentalist beliefs. The world is hosting us and the earth giving us its fruits....Let’s be gentle and grateful! My favourite yoga poses are the inversions, because they make you to see the world form another point of view.
Yoga for kids and family yoga:
I teach my kids to love themselves and respect the world around them, to keep practicing their imagination, to believe that anything is possible, on the mat and in life in general. I teach adults to focus on the basics, to practice in a safe way and to return to their inner child.
