We often consider the body and mind as separate but they reflect each other in profound ways. Engaging in body and movement practices gives us a greater sense of physical freedom. We will notice over a short time that we can access deeper states of relaxation, recognise our body signals and move through life with greater ease and lightness. Flexibility of body can lead to flexibility of mind.

At Oscailt we have a host of experts who can help us to cultivate greater postural alignment, balance, core strength and overall well-being.

Abi Beri

Integrative Holistic Therapist

Hello, I'm Abi. With certifications in Integrative Holistic Therapy and Family Constellation Therapy, my journey into the realms of energy dynamics has been driven by a deep-seated passion for understanding its influence on our lives. From a young age, I've been attuned to the subtleties of energy and have dedicated myself to exploring its healing possibilities. I staunchly advocate for the transformative potential of energy work, viewing myself as a channel through which life force energy is directed to foster healing and well being in others.

My approach as a Holistic Therapist is to leverage various energy healing methodologies, aiming to rectify imbalances on physical, emotional, or mental levels by addressing the root energy discrepancies. I am devoted to creating a supportive and nurturing environment for my clients, guiding them towards holistic improvements in their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It's a collaborative effort, where I empower clients to unlock their healing capabilities and personal development.

If you're navigating challenges like chronic pain, stress, or emotional hurdles, I'm here to support your journey back to equilibrium and vitality.

I offer the following therapies:

Deirdre Hurley - Candlelit restorative yoga, Oscailt, Dublin

Yoga Instructor

Deirdre Hurley

Ever since I first started practising yoga in 2001, I have always been drawn to the practices of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. These practices foster and support deep rest, down to a cellular level and I believe we need them in our lives. I would love you to join me this new year on Thursday Evenings for a series of Candlelit Restorative Yoga classes. Your nervous system will thank you and I believe you’ll have the best, most restful sleep afterwards or your money back!

Faye McGarry, Yoga Instructor, Oscailt, Dublin 4

Yoga Instructor

Faye McGarry

Faye McGarry has been practicing Yoga for over 20 years & fell in love with the practice immediately! Hailing from Southern California, living in Central America & now Dublin since 2016, she has an open mind to the different ways that Yoga can be shared & translated in our world. Faye has been been teaching since 2011 with over 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training under the guidance of wise teachers like Nischala Joy Devi, Rolf Sovik, Kat Greene, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait and her master teacher Danielle Fowler. Her goal is to blend the many branches of Yoga to create a version of Yoga that can be applied to & enjoyed by anyone that walks into the room….to view Yoga as a healing modality, a work in instead of a work out. But, that doesn’t mean you won’t be challenged in her classes! She’s happy to offer active Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga & Restorative Yoga, as well as Meditation, Pranayama (breath work), Yoga Nidra & Reiki Healings.

Her greatest joy as a teacher is firstly to share the gift of Yoga but also to show that Yoga is for everyone! We all deserve to feel at ease in our body, mind, heart & spirit. Namaste.

Fiona Cranwell, Alexander Technique Instructor, Oscailt, Dublin

Alexander Technique

Fiona Cranwell

Alexander’s work is often associated with posture, but how we identify posture is often limiting. Posture in its truest sense is not limited to sitting or standing straight, it is the shape of your body in any action you do. How you hold muscle tension determines your shape, and also your efficiency. Understanding this allows you manage your whole self in new ways. Alexander taught us to find our own power in how we choose to use our bodies.

My job is to teach and support people in understanding what holds them back and how they can free themselves for easier use and efficient management of their movement.

I’ve been teaching Alexander for 13 years, having run into trouble with pain and posture myself. It has helped me solve so many problems that it continues to amaze me. Currently I’m blonde and 5 foot 8 and a half, having gained an inch by freeing myself of muscle tension that held me down.

I am fascinated by human beings and how they work, inside and out, individually and in groups. This Alexander journey is learning about life for life. We are here to work and play together, to communicate and support each other. If we are to be kind and take care of others we must start with being kind to ourselves, our muscles and our mind.

Stasys Solido, Massage Therapist, Oscailt, Dublin

Massage Therapist

Stasys Solido

Stasys specialises in Holistic, Deep tissue, advanced sports and orthopaedic massage, nutrition, human performance and longevity. Received training and certification with some of the industry’s greatest minds – James Waslaski.

Greatly influenced by Paul Chek- a world-renowned expert in the fields of corrective and high-performance exercise kinesiology, stress management and holistic wellness.

Through his own path of resolving sport-related injuries, Stasys understands the importance of integrating the body, mind, and spirit as a means to foster high performance for the long term.
 
As a professional advanced sports and orthopaedic massage therapist, my mission is to deliver the highest level of information and treatment based on over 10 years of actual experience.
A holistic approach to overall health and high performance always begins from inside-out. When you manage the foundations of health first – encompassing your thoughts, breathing, hydration, nourishment, sleep and movement, only then you will be in a state of pure potential. 
An accompanying deep tissue, advanced sports and orthopaedic massage will strive to get recovery and state of rest going via the realignment of muscle layers, loosening of connective tissues, myofascial release, combined with non painful passive joint mobilisation and relief of physical tension. 
This is a unique approach to optimising health, performance and longevity.
