This fun and interactive workshop will explore your yoga practice through a concept called, Be Activated.

Be Activated awakens muscles by stimulating the nerve supply. It helps to release tight muscles and re-balance them to enable you to move through your yoga practice with ease and with grace.

Be Activated is a revolutionary approach to correcting musculoskeletal imbalances. It’s a simple, effective and measurable method of addressing pain, improving performance and restoring balance and is an empowering tool for everyone. It will help you to move easier be connected, which is exactly what we are looking for in our yoga practice.

We’ll practice hip and heart openers, progressing deeper and stronger whilst staying present and mindful. We will practice in a way that nourishes the body, hydrates our connective tissue, mobilises the spine and strengthens you from within.

The workshop will finish with a guided meditation that will focus on the healing flow of ‘Prana,’ our life force. This workshop is for everybody. Beginners welcome.

About the author: Bev Porrino

Bev Porrino

My early career involved strutting the halls of numerous institutes, initially as a nurse then in Social work and while I have no plans to step back into those arenas I am grateful that I experienced the world through a wider lens because of them. In 1999 I moved to Amsterdam where I designed and delivered in-house education for a chain of gyms. I wrote a couple of books, numerous articles for Men’s Health and other magazines. I learned the craft of script writing and eventually went on to open Amstel Yoga Lounge, a boutique-style studio specialising in yoga and food workshops. In 2012 I relocated to Dublin and found The elbowroom. They let me make soup and gave me some classes and a place to hang out. I'm a teacher of yoga and pilates. I’m a writer and a Be Activated - Neuromuscular practitioner and I am smitten with the gritty city of Dublin and it’s eloquent and friendly inhabitants.

The elbowroom has an extensive range of classes for all ages and abilities. We offer such an eclectic mix to enable you to find something that will suit you. If you need any advice, please contact our class advisor who can point you in the right direction.
