"I'M IN LOVE WITH SKATES."
Iryna, can you tell us something about yourself?
I’m an ICP level 2 skating instructor from Kyiv, Ukraine. I speak English, Spanish, and a little German, too. I have been inline skating for more than 20 years and I have been teaching skating to adults and children since 2005. I love all types of skating!
So, which is your favorite?
I enjoy roller dance, freestyle, inline figure skating, urban skating, slalom, and even ice figure skating! Each of these skating styles has something special about it and releases different feelings in me and best of all practicing all these skills helps improve the other.
There have been a lot of changes in your life recently, what can you tell us about that?
As we all know 2022 changed the lives of all Ukrainians into "before and after".
In 2013, I set up my own inline skating school in Kyiv. However, now I live in Germany (Nordrhein-Westfalen) and skate in Dusseldorf, Cologne, and neighborhoods. I am now offering lessons in Germany and am happy to work with other schools in these areas. You can contact me on Instagram
or through my website
Iryna, we wish you the best of luck!
