Sinead began yoga in high school and felt immediately intrigued, as gymnastics was her first movement love. During her first year of undergrad, she began to experience more intense body and brain benefits from yoga in her athletics (gymnastics, track, dance), and great benefit to her emotional health. In 2009, she completed her first 200 hour training in Bija Hot Yoga (similar to Bikram's 26 main postures). In 2012, she completed her 200hr KRI Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training.
After graduating with a BA from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2013 in “Preventative Medicine”, she completed a third training in Restorative Yoga. At this time, she also began a regular practice of Healing Tao Qi Gong, a system of Qi Gong ("moving meditation") focused specifically on regulating stress and emotion through balancing the physical body. In 2016, she became an Associate Instructor of Healing Tao Qi Gong with Michael Winn, and, in 2018, became a Certified Universal Healing Tao Qi Gong Associate Instructor with Master Mantak Chia.
Ultimately, yoga and qi gong changed the trajectory of her scholastics, leading her to focus on medicine. Sinead is now in her final year of studies at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Potrero Hill to become an acupuncturist, herbologist, and lifestyle medicine practitioner. Her hope is to integrate mind-body practices with Chinese Medicine theory in order to empower her students and patients with tools for self-care and self-awareness. Lastly, her movement style is heavily inspired by Gaga, Ohad Naharin’s Movement Language.
