Yaeli Margalit will appear on the Pilates Stage Saturday 30th March 2019 @14:00 & 18:00 and Sunday 31st March 2019 @18:00
Join Yaeli at Thrive during two sessions:
Therapy Ball Workshop
In this workshop we’ll learn how to use therapy balls to best treat our neck aches, shoulder pains and muscle tightness (who doesn’t have some of those)! It’ll be an individualised, self-massage and yoga practice combined; one that you can take anywhere and use whenever you need it
Get ready for the ultimate sweaty session. We will use yoga-inspired HIIT to push your limits. Fun movements and high repetitions will elevate your heart rate and challenge your strength and endurance, leaving you feeling fatigued yet energized.
Learn more about Yaeli:
Yaeli is an orthopaedic physical therapist, a yoga and dance teacher. She’s also currently a student at the Irish College of Osteopathic Medicine Cork. Her love for body sciences really kicked off during her first degree, BSc Biomedical Science, NUIG, 2010. The learning was rich and rewarding, only the stressful and static lifestyle of an academic was physically crippling! After her degree, the only thing for it was to spend less time at a desk and more on a yoga mat, exploring manual therapies as medicine for physical pains.
This exploration brought her to study remedial massage in Melbourne, 2012-2014, where Yaeli qualified and worked as a senior allied health therapist in a busy city clinic.
It was during this time she encountered contact improvisation dance which, to date has been one of the most enjoyable and informing practices of body movement she has ever met. In 2013 she completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. As a dance teacher, she takes an intuitive approach to exploring the body’s most efficient, soft and powerful ways of moving in space, alone or with a partner. As a yoga teacher, she honours the fact that anybody can do yoga, but nobody is designed to do yoga like any other body.
Coming back to Ireland in 2015, Yaeli set up her own business Manual Movement Medicine, in Dublin and has been endeavouring to make the world a more embodied place through her practices of physical therapy, massage workshops, yoga and dance.
