Abbe comes from a dance background (classical ballet) and has been working in the field of movement/somatic education since 1997. One of the first qualified Pilates teachers in Ireland, she co-founded and directed the Dublin Pilates Studio from 2002-2006 (specializing in equipment work), before moving into Feldenkrais full time.
Her teaching approach has been influenced by complementary studies in other somatic approaches (Alexander Technique, Ideokinesis) and her experience over the years working with a wide range of people of all ages and abilities. Her classes provide practical resources for learning to regain and maintain healthy body use, and are particularly suitable for anyone wishing to reduce improve movement quality and confidence, reduce and prevent physical and mental stress, improve posture and co-ordination.
Abbe is a fully certified practitioner of the Feldenkrais method and a member of the U.K Feldenkrais Guild, and Feldenkrais Ireland.
