Time: 1930 - 2130
Cost: £10 (concessions available for students - £7)

Notes: This is the first of a a twice monthly class (or workshop) that I am offering to the South Hampshire area. We started the class a year 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. My aims in teaching this work are to encourage movement; to show how simple changes of body movement can produce change in our everyday lives, and to promote a sense of mindfulness of our inner energy and how we struggle to listen to our bodies and allow the body mind to move in freedom. I look forward to meeting you. For more dates go to the calendar on this site.

Next Date: 12/09/2014
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 September 2015 I may be able to offer a weekly class. Further dates: THE FOLLOWING DATES HAVE BEEN BOOKED: 03/10/14; 17/10/14; 26/10/14 (1 DAY WORKSHOP); 07/11/14; 28/11/14; 19/12/14. Classes are from 1930 - 2130 and the workshop will begin at 1030 and end at 1700. 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...
