Bridie

Energising Yoga for Samhain

I warmly invite you to join me for a heart-opening, energy-raising
yoga session to prepare us all for another fabulous day of dancing and
learning.

Starting with a gentle activation, we will continue with a
heart-opening Energy Block Release sequence. Following that we will
work with the Dru Power Sequence, designed to build energy within the
body by drawing it down from the heavens and up from the earth to meet
in the middle at the heart centre, including strong Warrior poses.To
finish, if we have time, we will focus on the Dru Point, the still,
quiet core of our being, in the Salute to Dhruva, the Sanskrit name
for the North Star. Then a short relaxation to allow it all to be
absorbed by the body. All this in 1 hour?!

Please have a yoga mat, a cushion and/or a blanket handy, plus plenty
of water to stay hydrated.

Dru Yoga is very gentle yet still powerful, accessible by most
practitioners. Modifications can be made to accommodate all abilities.
Please PM me via facebook if you would like to discuss any issues
ahead of the class.

Akasha

My Roots Are Showing - Dye Them Black No 1

Following on from my previously popular lecture “History of Tribal Fusion”, Robyn suggested a sequel about gothic/dark fusion.
Just wearing black doesn’t make you a goth; Just listing to goth music doesn’t make you one either - or does it?
In this lecture/discussion, we look at the qualities of the darker subcultures and how they have influenced the dance scene over time. The ideas I present will be largely based on my experience and my taste, whilst keeping am objective view; I welcome your thoughts and theories!
There is a fine line between “gothic/dark” and “standard” Fusion, but what exactly are the defining features?
Just (even dark) fashion and tastes have changed over time, so has our festival and the performances; I’d like to take this time to take you on a journey, educate and reminisce!
