Hello, I’m Bev,
Thank you for popping into my website. I’m a Neuromuscular Therapist and a Yogi and I help people to understand how their body really works.
Let me explain, there are hundreds of complex structures that make up the human body, learning about them is interesting but knowing how the body communicates will change the way you see and understand the human body forever.
How I got here?
I trained as a nurse, was part of a multidisciplinary team covering Emergency Duty Services and later I moved into stress management and wellbeing. Working for local government in those services was relentless and sometimes there was danger. I learned how to manage my stress through yoga, exercise and breath work. One thing led to another and I was invited to work as part of a National focus team assessing the effects of stress and aggression in the workplace a few years later a career break gave me the time to think. Serendipity intervened and I moved to Amsterdam. I opened a small boutique yoga & food space called Amstel Yoga Lounge on the River Amstel where I lived for 12 years with my partner. That was such a lovely time in my life but as you know life is always changing.
My change came in the guise of a road traffic accident. I came off my bike on a rain soaked Amsterdam morning and did myself a fair bit of damage. In my quest to heal my injuries I tried every modality known, I studied Neuromuscular Therapy and biomechanics, I travelled listened to endless podcasts and lectures took courses, unskilled my professional qualifications but the clarity came during a lecture entitled, what is what you are learning is wrong. It made me rethink everything. I realised that I had spent a long time focussing on what I couldn’t do rather on why my body wasn’t healing.
That lecture changed my direction and became the focus of my work. Be Activated by Douglas Heel. I quickly integrated it into my practice and Yoga and I went on to develop two programmes ‘Postural Reset’ for office workers, and ‘Activate Your Asana ‘ both of these programmes help people to realign their own bodies. I am inspired by the stories that my clients tell me and more than that, I love helping them to unravel the why’s and what if’s that get in the way of their healing process.
I am currently based in Dublin and I love sharing my knowledge and skills with my clients.
