17th - 19th September 2021

Esker Retreat Centre

Back In Balance Workshop
Residential weekend
Starts Fri 6:00 PM, and ends Sun 3:00 PM
Cost: €165
Back in Balance workshops are based on the Alexander Technique which is a unique way of improving balance, posture and co-ordination. It can help prevent or dramatically alleviate backache, migraine, arthritis, insomnia, depression and stress as well as the whole range of physical aches and pains that are common today. During the course we will explore everyday activities such as standing sitting, walking and working at a computer to see if we are causing too much tension in our muscles without realising it. This course will help you to improve posture and confidence as well as alleviate aches and pains and help you to move through life with greater ease and put your life back into balance.
(Lower cost of €110 for non-residential)
About the Venue: Esker is a well-known retreat centre in a monastic site run by the Redemptorists. The retreat centre is set in beautiful grounds, giving a feeling of peace and tranquillity. Close to Galway city.
