Move & Play @ 42 Acres Shoreditch

Monday evening class, 7pm at 42 Acres Shoreditch

Whilst there isn't any trees inside, 42 Acres Shoreditch it is as beautiful an indoor space can be. In this class we explore the aspects of my movement practice that is harder to share outside and take advantage of the lovely wooden floor and exuberant energy held within the walls. Expect to limber, strengthen, flex, slide, roll and spin. We'll be exploring elements of flow, contact improvisation and roughhousing/rough and tumble play. The idea is to create a space safe for you to explore and cultivate what freedom of movement is for you. Finally there will be fun. It will be vigorous and challenging in the best possibly way, but my plan is for you to hardly notice as it will feel like play.

Move With The Seasons - Autumn: Cardiff

Two Day Experience / Workshop, 10am - 5pm

What is moving seasonally?

Adaption. Awareness of rhythm, change and ‘spirit of place’. Relationships.

Most can relate to how they eat differently according to the season; the temperature, emotional connection, how they feel and what 'should' be most relevant - what is actually available to eat at that time of year. I believe the seasons also affect how we move, whether we are aware of it or not - from one’s body language (shivering with self-embrace from the cold or open and confident from the warm sun) to how we want to train and move, which if done predominately outside will influence what is practical and relevant. The conditions from a utility perspective, but also with awareness, can feed our emotions to impulses which feed our movement.

We move to fit the environment (adaptability) and the environment MOVES us (impulse or emotionally).

Wild Woods - a Woodsmoke & Evolve Move Play Event

Join us for a five-day workshop celebrating this fifth element – living suspended in the canopy in Tentsile tree-tents for four nights and a final night in a 4* hotel, learning to move through the arboreal environment, from nimbly traveling on forest trails to actually climbing safely through the canopy, learning the art of shaping wood like axemanship and knifecraft, conjuring fire from wood by friction, learning to forage woodland wild food, dining on nutritious woodland based foods; like blossom tea to nut flour bread, cooking on wood fires, and banqueting on spit-roast venison, learning to recognise the tracks of woodland animals and most importantly, learning about the individual tree species themselves, from lore to uses. Evenings will be spent unwinding at the spa before retiring to the campfire circle.

Free Women's Workshop - An Invitation

So this is an invitation to help us with this research – a free workshop and by taking part, help us understand better the many layers and complex dynamics that are at play with the perceived lack of women taking part in natural movement and more specifically, the outdoor element and the rough and tumble / roughhousing play that we do truly believe is universal. All we ask in return for your attendance, is an empty cup / open mind, to give it a try and to give me honest feedback.
