our certified body poets
My name is Rosi Lalor I am a Body Poet based in Cork, Ireland. Back in 2004 I trained as a Holistic Therapist (Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology). For nine years I taught young adults with a broad range of special educational needs. I have been writing and performing songs for the past fifteen years and recently recorded my second album of original songs. In 2006 I completed an MA in Creative Writing for Personal Development at the University of Sussex. After moving from the UK to Ireland in 2014 I trained to become a Reiki Master and a Magnified Healing practitioner and teacher. I now offer in-person treatments at The Natural Clinic in Cork city, as well as distance healing and Body Poem sessions online.
I have always been drawn to somatic/ embodiment practices, largely because I needed to learn to regulate my highly sensitive (and often overwhelmed) nervous system. My journey from feeling unsafe in my body and disconnected from its messages, to being in deep loving connection with it, has been a slow one, and my greatest teacher.
Body Poem has been a priceless resource for me in creating this shift. It has enabled me to access, accept, and integrate parts of myself that I didn’t know existed, through providing a safe container for that process. I have seen it do the same for my clients. It is truly an honour for me to guide others through this powerfully gentle process.
