At a loose end this weekend and looking for something to do that doesn’t involve pints? If you’re wondering what’s on we’ve got the best wellness-inspired events taking place this weekend
What’s on in Dublin?
Vibrantly Alive with Sibylle Dallmann @ Yoga Dublin Ranelagh
She’s back! Join Sibylle as she returns to Ireland for two 90 minute classes over the course of the weekend. What can you expect? Detailed and nuanced verbal cues which guide you through two flowing practices, each offering an opportunity to orient yourself within your own body in a completely unique way.
As you slowly move through space you’ll have time to properly process the information each asana offers you. Before then utilising it to grow your practice. Meditation, pranayama and energy work are all delicately woven into the weekend. To deepen the experience and create a space where you fully step into your own vibrancy.
Saturday, 15 September from 2 – 3.30pm & Sunday, 16 September from 2 – 3.30pm. Classes are priced at €25 each or €40 for both and are available here
Let’s Rocket @ YogaHub Camden
If you tried rocket yoga at WellFest this year then you’ll understand why we’re excited about this workshop. Rocket yoga is based on the Ashtanga primary series but with a lot of modifications so you get to inversions more quickly and in a more fun way. If you have a sense of humour about your practice this is for you!
And this weekend Sarah Grogan is in YogaHub teaching a full rocket sequence, taking some time to break down those tough arm balances and transitions. It’s an all levels class, so there will be variations for everyone. Just remember, as Larry Schultz, the creator of rocket yoga, best put it: “You are stronger than you think you are.”
Sunday, 16 September from 12pm – 2pm. Tickets are priced at €30 and are available here
Yotam Ottolenghi: Off the Page @ O’Reilly Theatre
As part of the Dublin Literature Festival join culinary legend Yotam Ottolenghi as he celebrates the launch of his new book Simple. Ottolenghi is known for easy but delicious dishes that suit whatever type of cooking you find easy. And that’s exactly what this event is about. Whether that’s getting wonderful food on the table in under 30 minutes, using just one pot to make a delicious meal, or a flavoursome dish that can be prepared ahead and then served when you’re ready.
Thursday, 20 September from 6.30pm – 8pm. Tickets are priced at €16 and are available here
