As proud business owners and residents of Dublin 8 for the past 25 years, we’re delighted to see our neighbourhood and community be injected with a new lease of life recently. We’ve seen the changes firsthand, and the massive increase in popularity in the area. There are so many cranes on the skyline!
With change comes uncertainty though. We know change can mean additional stress or anxiety for people. Increased rents, stressful jobs, managing home life and work and getting through everything that life throws at us can be a challenge.
We have always had a focus on helping people in our studio and we have mainly done this through Pilates and movement in the past. However, the more we teach and the more we deal with people the more we realise that there is a mental health aspect to what we do too.
Time and again we see clients who are at very stressful points in their lives coming into us with increased back pain, more tension in their bodies and an inability to let go of that tension.
If we can help them regain the ability to let go and move more, pain decreases, mood improves and as every system in our body relies on movement, they breathe better and then feel better. You’ll have heard us all say many times in class Let. It. Go. Three simple words, but oh so effective.
So, as part of our plans over the coming months, we want to give something back to our community here in Dublin 8. We’re arranging a series of talks, workshops and events, with the goal of getting you feeling better – both mentally and physically.
As well as our team, we’ve asked a number of colleagues and clients to work with us. If you’d like to get involved too, please get in touch.
Proceeds for events will be donated to local charities.
