Candlelit Somatic Restorative 2h
Sunday 22nd December 6:30-8:30pm
with Frankie Walker
A delicious 2 hour Somatic Restorative Workshop.
We will be focusing on poses to support the Lymphatic system. The Lymph is a beautiful fluid formed between cells and filled with our white blood cells, it transports the recycling and waste away from the cells to be processed. The Lymph return is assisted by muscular movement and inverting to gravity, as it has no pump the gentle upside down poses of head lower than heart can support and even flush the nodes and the system.
This will also be a deeply nourishing workshop for the nervous system and a chance to re-balance on a cellular and energetic as well as physiological level.
Come and join us on the 22nd December for this perfect preparation to Yuletide festivities

Candlelit Intro to Kundalini Yoga, Meditation & Gong 2h
with Nick Stolerman
The perfect way to end your weekend and set you up for the week ahead, Nick will lead a session that blends movement, breathing, meditation, visualisation and sound. Kundalini shares many similarities with other forms of yoga but it is quite distinctive. It is suitable for all ages and abilities because it focuses on mental strength and agility rather than physical prowess. It can challenge you physically, but it is not a competitive sport, it’s about you as an individual, doing your best to achieve your potential.
Kundalini is known as the yoga of awareness, a raja (royal) yoga, because the philosophies and techniques developed thousands of years ago were only available to an elite few, to kings, the wealthy, the mystics. But today they are open to all, so if you have never tried Kundalini, you are in for a treat!

Transformational Breath® Breathing Circle
with Lisa Hatton
Come and Experience the Power of your very own Breath
Transformational Breath® is a wonderful, simple yet profound, self-empowering technique that can facilitate powerful lasting personal change without the need to talk, analyse or share. It is natural, safe, easy to learn and proven to have many benefits.
Did you know that just by changing the way you breathe you can permanently clear unhelpful thought patterns and emotional baggage? It's great for those of you who would like to handle stress in a better way or maybe you might like to improve your physical wellbeing or simply connect to yourself in a deeper way.

Accessing a full-bodied, deep connected breath can help you:

Everyone can benefit from learning Transformational Breath® regardless of age, health or condition. It's wonderful for pregnant women too and can help clear their own birth trauma before giving birth. It can also be used whilst giving birth.
In the workshop you will be helped to identify your own unique breathing pattern; you will learn to breathe more fully and experience a full Transformational Breath® session. Sound, movement, and gentle acupressure will also be used.
Teleporters Drama Workshops
Every Monday and Friday
with Katerina Petridou
A mix & match theatre workshop where different arts are blended together and trips to parallel universes take place. Teleport with us! For all ages.
Teleporta is a door that leads you into a magical world, where you can travel through time and space, discover the world and yourself. It's a mix & match theatre workshop where different arts are combined and projects are held. They will all result in a devised piece of theatre, a unique performance made from scratch where you can participate in any way you prefer, on stage or off stage. Children, teenagers and adults become teleporters -in English or Greek- through theatre games, improvisation, role playing, dramatisation, storytelling, pantomime, puppetry, movement, music and songs, props making, short film making, writing and the use of media.
Little Teleporters (4-6yrs) & (7-12yrs) 12week course
Theatre should play a vital part in people's education and that needs to start at an early age. Children need more opportunities to express their feelings and thoughts, share their experiences, build relationships, work as a team, learn to respect each other, embrace diversity, explore the world and themselves, develop their confidence, have a go without the fear of failure, get inspired.
Theatre is the most magical way for all of these to happen. Would you like to be part of this journey?
Mondays 16.00-17.00: Little teleporters (4-6yrs) Block of 12 classes
Mondays 17.15-18.15: Little teleporters (7-12yrs) Block of 12 classes
Teleporteens (13-18yrs) 12week course
Apart from the above, young people need to be heard. They need to feel appreciated. This is why a devising performance will be one of our main priorities. Exploring the real world by raising awareness for a social issue, a place of heritage, a historical event or a story that hasn't been heard will be one of this group's projects. Their concerns, their dreams, their fears, their interests, their passions will be mirrored on the team's work. Making new friends and having their voices heard will help them feel included and develop their confidence and self-esteem.
Mondays 18.30-19.45: Teleporteens (13-18 yrs) Block of 12 classes
Teleportes (in Greek) 12week course
We teleport in Greek. What changes here is that we add another goal: to keep in contact with the cultural heritage & the Greek language and to instil in children the thirst for further exploration of their origins. Through theatre and amusing activities children come closer to the Greek language and culture, their tradition, their history, the greek mythology, tales and songs. We want them to enrich their vocabulary and feel confident. We encourage them to speak in Greek, even if they make mistakes. One of the most effective teaching methods is "learning by doing", by having fun and exploring. How about joining our learning adventure?
Fridays 16.15-17.30: Teleportes (in greek) Block of 12 classes
Teleporters (adults) 12week course
This is a group for adults. It's never late to enter the world of theatre, a parallel universe in which we can have a break from the stress and the automatisation of the world outside, where we are called to play roles all day. As William Shakespeare wrote, "All the world's a stage". Time to put everything back, be ourselves, discover the truth inside us, collaborate and share. It's liberating. It's purifying. It leads to catharses. Participants will experience all the games, activities and projects described alongside plus acting techniques and role approaches. The workshop will be run in English or Greek, depending on people's demands.
Fridays 17.45-19.15: Teleporters (adults) Block of 12 classes
