Combining her love of music and movement, Louise has developed Yoga Dance Ireland, a unique movement and musical experience which is both relaxing and uplifting.
Her workshop ‘Elevate’ is a personalised workshop which uses the music that participants find energising.
The session starts with slow, gentle stretching with relaxing music. The stretches are then completed to more active music, which the participants have chosen in advance. The idea is to have fun, move, stretch and release. The session ends with a mindful, lying down relaxation so that everyone leaves with a feeling of calm and wellbeing.
A feeling of rejuvenation and a huge energy boost
The Elevate session can also be combined with a Mindfulness session for a half day of Wellbeing Practices.
Louise has integrated her vast experience in working in special needs services in designing a workshop specifically for participants on the Autism Spectrum Disorder, and also for individuals with wider special needs. Read more about these workshops here:
