About Katrin’s Class
Restorative Somatic Movement is all about befriending yourself and moving freely, efficiently and without pain. We use mindful attention and full body movement patterns to ease stuck, tight parts of ourself. The work is deeply relaxing, inquisitive and refreshing. Classes are structured (no improvisation) to create a clarity in movement and intention. You can think of this practice as a luxurious base layer of movements, on which you can build upon. Hanna Somatics is retraining your nervous system / brain to regulate how it 'communicates' with your muscular system, improving motor control, body awareness and emotional regulation.
I certified as a Somatic Exercise Coach beginning of 2014, just after I had my son. When I started using what I learned with some of my private Pilates clients, I was blown away at their rapid progress in terms of awareness, pain relief and ability to make kinder movement choices. I was accepted into the professional training and am currently in my last of 3 years of study to become a Clinical Somatic Educator under Martha Peterson.
I also hold a degree in dance education as well as an MA in Dance performance and have been teaching movement since well over a decade, from children to pre-professionals and adults. Somatic Movement brings me closer to dance again and I regularly teach the professional morning classes as well as guest lecture in Hanna Somatics at the MA Contemporary Dance Performance at UL. You can find more info about my private practice at www.somadublin.com.
What is the format? This is a class focused on the nuance of the body and takes place predominantly lying on the floor.
What to wear? Yoga, Ballet or gym gear, barefoot or socks.
What to bring? Please wear layers and bring a yoga mat. Dance Ireland has a limited number of mats available to borrow if you don’t have one available to bring.
Who is it for? This is a very fundamental movement practice, so the class is open for all, including anyone living with conditions like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Fatigue, Ehler-Danlos-Syndrome etc. Excellent also, if you experience recurring injuries or often feel wired and tired.
