EAT better / LIVE better / MOVE better

Eat, Move and Live Better this weekend

We are always on the look out for activities to get involved in over the weekend. Dublin has so much to offer and it can sometimes be hard to know where to look to find great things to do. We like to think of our message TREAT YOURSELF BETTER as involving all aspects of how we live. Below are a few great options of feel good ways to spend your weekend.

EAT BETTER

One of the best ways to enjoy the weekend is with friends over food. Katie Sanderson is doing a vegetable dinner this Friday and Saturday in the Fumbally Stables. Tickets are €48 euro and available on Katie’s website. Katie is planning lots of ferments, pickles and tastes. The meal starts at 7.30pm and is BYOB.

MOVE BETTER

There are so many benefits of doing inversions (turning our bodies upside down!). Turning the body upside down reverses the blood flow and improves circulation. This provides the brain with more oxygen and blood therefore increasing mental functioning, and improving concentration, memory, and processing abilities. Inversions leave you feeling energised and relaxed. Being able to a handstand or even work towards one is great for our confidence and staying humble. It is not easy to achieve but there is no feeling like it when you finally get there!

Handstand workshop ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’ taught by Lorraine is on Sunday 17th at The Yoga Hub.

The coffee and handstand workshop that takes place every Saturday from 10am at Always Move in Terenure is great fun. It is really suited to all abilities and they serve delicious 3fe coffee! They are also big fans of Nobó but don’t have a freezer as I learnt when I tried to bring them a present and it melted!

LIVE BETTER

This one looks great. I used to go to loads of workshops in The Ark , Temple Bar when I was younger. I have great memories and loads of chalk drawings on paper bags to show for it. This sounds like a really fun family workshop run by Marten Jonmark who is an animator, storyboard artist, lecturer and director. Marten has won two consecutive Daytime Emmys (outstanding individual achievement in animation) for his work on the TV series Peter Rabbit with Brown Bag Films. The workshops are on Saturday 16th at 11am and 1.30pm.
