About The Workshop

‘Awakening’ will be 60 minutes of movement and breath to awaken and stimulate the senses, hydrate the fascial system, mobilize joints and expand the body and mind ready for the day ahead.

The power of movement in crisis (a background to ‘Awakening’):

“I have had the good fortune throughout my life as a ballet dancer, Pilates and Gyrotonic teacher to explore the human potential for movement in great depth. Though challenging at times, I have learnt from experience that life without movement is life without breath. The Covid-19 lockdown during March 2020 provided me with the opportunity to prove this to others, though I was unaware of this at the time. 

“Almost as soon as our studio was forced to close, I started to offer this 45 minute ‘awakening’ class on Zoom. As more and more of my clients joined in, I started to recognise the support both emotionally and physically that the structure of these 8.30am classes was giving, not only to my clients but to myself as well. All in our own worlds but together in movement.  

“Ten months later they are still happening and those who have participated have experienced the benefits that regular, consistent movement can bring. Old niggles fade away, the mind becomes focused and the body energised, digestion stimulated and breathing improved.” - Sarah

There will be a chance at the end of the class for Q&A.

Zoom links will either be sent out the night before or 1 hour before the class starts.  You must have registered at least an hour before the class to receive the Zoom link.
