Ruthe Burke is a Yoga Somatics, and Pilates Movement Educator, and a graduate of YTI.


Since 2011, Ruthe has been spreading the joy of FUNdamental movement to a long list of

William Fry, Paddypower, Yoga Dublin Studios, The Elbow Room, and Galway Community
College.
“Having practiced Yoga since 1997, I always enjoyed sports and being able to move freely,
especially outdoors, so training with YTI felt like a natural step to take.
Although fit and active, a runner, and student of Yoga and Pilates, I was privately dealing
with Chronic Pain for nearly 4 years. After exploring several medical and complementary
therapy options, it seemed that long-term relief was not on the cards for me.
Then, I discovered the power of Somatics during a YTI seminar.
Finding relief through performing simple Somatic movements was a Eureka moment. I
couldn’t believe that the pain was gone. Though echos returned in the following months,
through practicing the daily “Cat Stretch” exercises, I was able to release any residual
tension and pain, and fully recover.
Through this experience I found a gift. If I could educate and heal myself, I could help
others to do the same. Since 2013, I have trained extensively in Somatic movement, and
developed my Method of Yoga Somatics.
What I have learned is that movement is life and life is in moving. We are as young or old
as our spine can move.
Yoga Somatics teaches self-awareness, kindness, and compassion. During my workshop
we will blend modern science and fundamental movement skills with the ancient yogic
practice of meditation and mindful movement. Above all, it is fun.”
