Reserve your mat for 6 weeks of Somatic movement classes at Swan Leisure Centre in Rathmines.
We take the opportunity to slow down and take a fresh look at how we move without the pressure of mastering a repertoire. Become better at letting go of stressful tension, zoom in on your breathing and move your body gently into all directions.
If you feel wired and compressed or live with a constant sensation of tightness in your body that is hard to reach and ever returning even after the most luxurious massage, Somatic Movement can bring you back to a harmonious sense of space and freedom of movement. Hanna’s work is a deep look at function and the ‘mind in movement’ that feels calming and refreshing, and cultivates a kind and inquisitive mindset.
The class is geared towards beginners, people with chronic pain (Fibromyalgia, ME, etc) that prohibits ‘normal’ fitness-based classes, anyone nurturing injuries, have had recent surgeries or simply enjoy a gentle movement class that is grounding and makes you feel closer to yourself again!
Classes start February 6th and sign up is for 6 consecutive classes (up to incl March 12th). Sign up is open until February 12th, then opens again for the next block of 6 weeks starting March 19th.
Swan Leisure Centre is well serviced by bus and in the heart of Rathmines, easy to reach from Terenure, Rathgar, Ranelagh, Portobello or Kimmage.
