Laura Murphy

This class ise based on a shaking practice that stems from Laura Murphy's daily practice with colleague and dance artist Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín. The classes will take the format of a shaking practice, and will include structured improvisations and explorations of space - from inside your body to your kinesphere and the surrounding room. Laura's class offers a sense of groundedness in your body.

The class is composed of 4 sections that move from one to the next and increase in vigour. You can take the class at your own pace. Moving together, the classes/practice is accompanied by a selected soundtrack. The classes will be held in a space the size of a yoga mat - and easy to follow.

Please note:

Marion Cronin will be teaching this class on June 14th 

Maria Nilsson Waller will be teaching this class on June 15th 


All bookings for classes and workshops can now be made online through Mindbody. 

**See our COVID-19 Guidelines below including notes on arrival time of 9.45am for class and mask wearing.
