Given Half A Chance

Saturday 23 June - Sunday 1 July
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Preview: Friday, June 22 at 7 PM – 9 PM
Music and performance evening
: Friday, July 6 at 6:30 PM – 9 PM

Given half a chance showcases the work of a mix of artists, brought together by their ability to react and respond to the unpredictability and precarity of artistic opportunities. 

Their works reflect and respond to this fleeting sense of presence and encounter through varying mediums. 

On the one hand their fragmented works create haunting moments of poignant reflection and unnerving irreverence. Whilst, on the other, they embrace the space before them as an opportunity to collaborate, display and discuss their works, creating an open space in which they show exactly what they’d do given half a chance…

Featured artists include: 

Tyler Blair
Shawn Bodden
Josh Corkill
Luke Thomas Edwards
Tessa Maudlin
Stephanie Wilson

This class is suitable for beginners and those wishing to study the basic asanas (poses). In Iyengar yoga, we begin by learning the correct alignment in the basic poses and build on these as we introduce more challenges to the practice. During the 11 week term, we will learn standing and seated asanas, twists, forward bends, balancing and inversions. Props (bricks, chairs, blankets etc.) are used to assist us to understand the basic actions required in each posture which will allow us to develop our practice.
All of our teachers have completed a minimum of 5 years’ training and continue to train with senior teachers.
