Congruency - 5 Nov 2023

I’m organising a day workshop for my Open Floor teacher Deborah Lewin in Glasgow.

I warmly recommend her teaching (and music), in the words of another of her students, she is 'skillful, sensitive, respectful and compassionate'.  

The theme for the workshop is congruency. We'll be learning through our bodies to listen to our impulses to be honest and authentic, to move towards and away from aspects of our lives with integrity.

The workshop runs 10.30am-5.30pm at the 72 Berkeley Street studio.

Places are limited, for more information and booking see Deborah’s website here.

Surrender - 21 Jan 2024

Can we surrender to movement and stillness? Yielding and releasing as we move through rest and motion, connecting deeply to our own bodies and our own dance.

A day workshop of movement, music, connection and deep rest.

Date: Sunday 21st January

Time: 10.30-4.30

Venue: Top floor studio, 72 Berkeley Street, Glasgow, G3 7DS.

Cost: £40 (£10 deposit to book)

Retreats at Dhanakosa

For a deeper dive come on retreat - a week of movement practice, meditation and Buddhism - on the shores of Loch Voil in wild and beautiful Balquhidder Glen in central Scotland.

I’ll be teaching movement on these retreats in 2023 and 2024:

On this retreat we will explore the possibility of easing into natural simplicity and effortless enjoyment of life's journey. Drawing on the ancient wisdom of Mahamudra in meditation and movement we will invite in resources, release obstacles, and relax into the flow of life more fully without the stress of trying to control our experience.
