Supporting the CentreWe want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being closed means we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please make a regular or one-off donation here. The usual rates for these classes are around £8.50 standard rate or £7 concessionary rate.
I’ll be offering fairly gentle movement practices – a lot of floor work but also sometimes some more active standing practices with time for relaxation and simply stopping. This is a time when we need to work to calm the inevitable anxiety and agitation we are experiencing. So plenty of grounding and anchoring practices to support our nervous systems to rebalance.
My focus is coming into our bodies, releasing tension, giving ourselves space to drop into our experience and hold ourselves and others with kindness and tenderness and offer this to our suffering world.
