I will start teaching a regular class again – locally in The Holistic Centre of Ireland in Rathmines (opposite the Swan Centre). The class will practically introduce you to what Hanna Somatics is, how you can ease back pain, tight shoulders and other niggles through enjoyable movement. Learn again how to take cues from your body by increasing your awareness. I will teach you movements for front, back and sides of the body and explain how and why it all connects to the centre.
You will feel relaxed and restored, empowered with being able to make changes without needing somebody to ‘fix you’.
Some of my clients call it a ‘moving meditation’, the first type of movement that they can stick to as a daily practice without getting bored by having to do exercise. A lot of clients are equally amazed and surprised by the immediate effect Somatics has on their posture and alignment, and you can learn how to apply the movement and principles to yourself.
The class is suitable for any level of physical activity (you need to be able to get up the stairs in the building and lie down on a mat). It is excellent for athletes to refine movement and ‘warm up the nervous system’, just as it is wonderful for someone who is usually not very active to gently introduce more movement that won’t hurt. Pilates and yoga enthusiasts can expect to learn how to get more out of their practice.
I am a regularly invited guest teacher for Dance Ireland, teaching professional dancers and I was invited as a guest lecturer at University of Limerick to work with the Ma students in Dance Performance in 2016, and teach movement since over a decade. I work in private practice with clients who want to move better or want to move with less pain after injury, surgery or structural imbalances.
