Ethical Yoga – Introductory Course

Tue 14 Apr 2015, 6.15pm

Conway Hall Ethical Society & YogaPod London presents

Ethical Yoga - Introductory Course

We hear a lot these days, that “yoga” is good for us. But why is that and what it is good for? Can yoga be for anyone? Does it need to be ‘spiritual’ to be of benefit? 

Over the four-week course, you will be introduced to fundamentals of the yoga “asana”, how to align the body, counter hyper-mobility, improve posture, core strength and safety techniques to ensure your own practice is muscle and not joint based.

Nicole Frances-Galtié became a qualified yoga teacher in 2006, after completing the Yoga Alliance 200 RYT training at OmStation3 in West London. Her own practice and teaching style is focused on the physiological building blocks of a good practice. Alignment is key and understanding how each individual body responds to yoga training is of paramount importance, you’ll never be made to conform to a perfect pose, but you will learn to build a pose from the ground up, so that it’s aligned, supported, safe and beneficial. 

Introductory Course Topic

14 Apr - What makes a “dynamic” practice? 

Each session lasts 75 minutes.

Tickets £5 per session

Spiritualists

Sun 19 April 2015, 16:00

The Conway Collective presents:

Spiritualists, a rehearsed reading of a new play loosely based on the Rochester Rappers

written by Anne-Sophie Marie

In the years preceding the American Civil War, a young spiritualist medium struggles with her profession, her beliefs and her powers.

Margaret and her two sisters earn a living through séances, passing for the real thing by using various tricks to fool their audience.

When Margaret meets Elisha, an explorer who remains a sceptic, something triggers the kind of experience she usually only pretends to have. As other events unfold, Margaret no longer knows her own mind nor the kind of life she must lead to survive while keeping her integrity.  

Tickets: £5

Thu 7 May 2015, 19:45

The Conway Collective presents:

CounterPointe Shorts: new work by women for pointe

CounterPointe is a performance series dedicated to presenting the latest experimental, innovative, risk-taking choreography that shows a depth of investment in ballet by women dance makers working with the pointe shoe. Investigating new and old territory the series highlights new work, opening up discussion, and creating a forum for women, young or old, emerging or established, to take risks. 

Presented by Norte Maar’s Julia Gleich with Briar Adams and in collaboration with Conway Collective. 

This instalment of CounterPointe Shorts will feature informal showings of new works and post-performance discussion. Past post-performance talks have been led by: Claudia Jeschke, Karole Armitage, and Susie Crow. 

I remember one of my first ideas in these early punk pointe pieces was to think of pointe shoes as weapons. – Karole Armitage, 2013 CounterPointe

Tickets £10, £8
