Next Date: 28/11/2014
Time: 1930 - 2130
Cost: £10

Notes: We are fortunate to have a generous and beautiful space with a great atmosphere at Cowdray - and i am also fortunate that with the Rake venue closed to us I have been offered almost two dates each month. I would like to increase this - and hope that by September 2015 I may be able to offer a weekly class. Further dates: THE FOLLOWING DATES HAVE BEEN BOOKED: November 28th, DECEMBER 19TH. the class on the 19th will be taken by Nicky, a delightful new teacher who has just finished her 5 Rhythms' training. I hope you will support her and make it an evening to remember. I shall be going to hospital on 1 December for a new knee..so shall be out of action. JANUARY 16TH 2015; JANUARY 30TH; FEBRUARY 13TH; WORKSHOP 22/02/15; MARCH 6TH WORKSHOP 22/03/15. I HOPE TO BE ABLE TO ORGANISE A TEACHER TO COME 1 x monthly during the spring and summer months and for a peer session to also run monthly. This may take some arranging but I am hopeful! I teach with encouragement, respect and kindness; these classes provide a space of release from the rushing and pushing and noise of the everyday round. This practice is held by a strong rhythmic structure - the music - and your ability to surrender to this in your own way and together with your mindfulness vis a vis your body brings out your authentic energy. This practice can promote change - in body, mind and emotions - and it also an opportunity to enjoy your own dance... FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT ME ON email - gay@joyfuldance.co.uk.

Classes will start again in January on the 7th. Nicky may very well be teaching on that date too. I am not going on hole but having a replacement knee operation. I hope to be back with you mid Jan. We move, we laugh, we give our bodies attention; we become aware of our possibilities and our limitations. We can sit or lie on the floor and we can dance. If you love to sway to a beat and haven't got a big enough kitchen - come and join us and move on a beautiful floor in the company of others who want to let their feet dance. Classes stop on 17th December

THE LAST CLASS OF THE YEAR ON 18/12/2014 WILL BE TAKEN BY BODHI HUNT, another colleague and Certified 5 Rhythms Teacher. Both these teachers may be interested in coming down to Southampton in 2015 in order to move this lovely class onto a weekly basis. More news later.... We started the class 18 months ago and already it is a community with a unique flavour - of joy in dance, a willingness to try out something new and showing great sensitivity to their fellow dancers.

Next Date: 14/02/2015
Time: 1030 - 1600
Cost: £35 FOR THE DAY : CONCS. £20. Early payment detail

Notes: This is the 4th of our Fundamentals of 5 Rhythms' journey. We will explore the rhythms of lyrical and express ourselves physically through it. Despite it's reputation (the name conjures up 'happy, happy' dances;) it is in fact a place where every expression of ourselves is invited in. The many faceted moods and their physical expressions, the "good. the bad and the ugly" are special guests on this workshop as we investigate how we deal with multiple choices, multiple tasks, and managing the myriad day to day tasks of being an adult. I invite you to come along with a spirit of curiosity, food to nourish yourselves, and let yourself surrender to the real person beneath the workaday mask. The last workshop, FUNDAMENTALS 5 on March 21 will let us move into Stillness, how we move in that mindful, meditative place. Again this is an exploration into how we manage to give ourselves time and compassion to let go of anything that is harmful to us or to those we love. It is also a day for re-connection with self, our inner child, the connections we let go, those we have now. If you wish to have the early bird discounted price - pay for the February and March workshops on or before 14.02.15 and it will cost you £50 for both. Let me know by email if you wish to do this. OTHERWISE you will pay the full amount £35, concessions available at£20. Please email me and ask about this. PLEASE THEE 2 DATES INTO YOUR DIARIES - 14/02/15 and 21/03/15.

Time: 1030 -1700
Cost: £35 Concessions £20 see discounted payment plan

Notes: FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOPS. There is so much to cover in and arounds these 5Rhythms, and I like the broad sweep of the word - space to explore, to discover, to learn and relearn our own body movements, what we like, what we avoid, where we hold back and where we jump in.... This is the 4th of our Fundamentals of 5 Rhythms' journey. We will explore the rhythms of lyrical and express ourselves physically through it. Despite it's reputation (the name conjures up 'happy, happy' dances;) it is in fact a place where every expression of ourselves is invited in. The many faceted moods and their physical expressions, the "good. the bad and the ugly" are special guests on this workshop as we investigate how we deal with multiple choices, multiple tasks, and managing the myriad day to day tasks of being an adult. We will concentrate on how our bodies feel this rhythm, how we welcome it, how we fear it. How we manage to be with another and with a group. In short, a voyage of discovery - breathless, exciting and a whole lot of other feelings beside. Bring with you your humour, your compassion, your courage and that curiosity to experience something new. There will be exercises, there will be time for talk, and also time to find your own unique dance. The last of this series - a Study of Stillness will be on 22/03/15. which will take us through this deep and many layered rhythm. Cost - Each workshop £35, concessions £20.(on request) The discounted price for the two workshops will be £50. So if you wish to take advantage book and pay before 22/02/15 please contact me by email if you would like to do this. gay@joyfuldance.co.uk.
