What’s On This Weekend

The sun has finally made an appearance, which has us all feeling a little more energetic and wondering what’s on this weekend. Put that energy to good use and book into a workshop over the weekend. From ballet to mud there’s something for everyone!

What’s on this weekend in Dublin

Spring Into Barre @ Platinum Pilates, Clonskeagh

Learn the tricks of the trade from the always awesome Dearbhla Mitchell. Combining her honours degree in theatre studies and background as lead solo with the Monica Loughman Ballet Company, Dearblah has created this Spring Into Barre event for any Barre lover.

The 2 hour workshop will take you on a magical ballet journey. Starting with a fitness section, Dearhbla will teach you how to build the strength, poise and flexibility of a dancer. From there you move into the technical side of things. Dearbhla will teach you the most popular ballet moves and sequences. She will break them down in to simple blocks, teaching you the trick to master them along the way.

Putting everything you learned together, you will finish the day with a choreography session. Dearbhla will teach you a stunning routine to Spring from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

If you love barre or simply want to live a childhood dream of being a Prima Ballerina, then this workshop is for you.

Sunday April 22 from 12.30pm. Tickets are available here

Hips & Splits @ Yoga Dublin Ranelagh
Experience a deep release of psoas tension with hip-opening exercises and somatic movement practices to relieve lower back pressure, lengthen and strengthen glutes and legs. You do not need to be able to do the splits to benefit from this workshop. The purpose is to deepen your range of flexibility and relieve lower back, pelvis and hip tension.
This workshop will integrate Yin Yoga with supported asana to enhance the depth of your stretch. We will incorporate split variations into asana balances, inversions and twists working towards the ultimate split through forward bends.

Please bring warm layers of clothing for different parts of the workshop (including socks). This is for intermediate level students. And, if you’re working towards splits but can’t make this workshop, check out our masterclass.

Sunday April 22 from 2 – 4.30pm. Tickets are priced @ €40 and are available here
