Meet kate gaffey
Hi I’m Kate Gaffey. I founded WorkplaceWellness because I wanted to bring top class wellness solutions to Irish companies. Having spent several years working in the corporate sector, I understand the impact that managing all aspects of wellness can have on our day-to-day productivity and happiness in the workplace.
I have a passion for yoga, movement, health & wellness. As a former chocoholic turned green smoothie addict I have experienced both sides of the wellness spectrum! Over the past number of years, I have gone from zero exercise and 10 bars of chocolate a day to a complete and utter fitness junkie. I have come to understand that the best road to health and wellness is a slow and steady one. I have seen first-hand the power of small changes, now I’m keen to spread the message far and wide.
After completing both a BSc and a BA in International Business from DCU and Northeastern University Boston, I spent the first few years of my career working in the financial sector, at Davy Stockbrokers. As my passion for health and wellbeing grew I decided to leave the financial sector and set up a small business development consultancy. After that I began teaching Yoga & Pilates and delivering workshops and training seminars to corporate clients. Existing clients include Savills, KBC, Squarespace, MyWellbeing.ie, Ernst & Young and Bord Gais.
I have undertaken a STOTT Pilates Intermediate & Advanced Matwork training and successfully completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Programme in Centered Yoga Thailand. My classes are dynamic and flowing – you can always expect a good workout while remaining mindful of what the body has to offer. Beyond Yoga & Pilates, I love to spend my time working on, or learning about Nutrition, Strength Training, Boxing, Meditation and Surfing.
