Orla teaches barre and deep tissue therapy ball massage at Barre Up. She loves the precisely focused movements and mind-body connection of these practices, and how doing them diligently over time — with ever improved form and technique — only makes them more challenging and transformational. In addition to barre and therapy ball massage, she is certified in kundalini yoga and Yoga Tune Up (RYT-300+), Power Pilates Mat I & II, and Little Guru children’s yoga. She also keeps active by dancing Argentine tango, swing, salsa and more.
