Workshops

Flow Pilates Class 8 week Autumn Block

Tuesday 15 October
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Matwork classes taught by experienced Body Control Pilates teacher Jyoti Sigouin.
They are fun and sociable, and kept to a maximum of 12 so everyone gets lots of the personal attention and correction that Body Control Pilates is renowned for.

In the Flow class, the flowing movement that makes Pilates such a joy comes to the fore, increasing your endurance and building strength and flexibility. As we introduce some of the advanced exercises from Joseph Pilates’ original classic mat you’ll also find your mind challenged by the more complex choreographed sequences. And there is lots of fun with the small equipment too!

MYO Beeswax Wraps & Join the Zero Waste Revolution

Wednesday 16 October
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

What are beeswax wraps?

Beeswax wraps are a natural eco-friendly alternative to cling film and tin foil for wrapping food, bread, cheese, sandwiches and covering bowls and jars. Perfect for school lunch boxes and keeping snacks fresh when you’re on the go. They keep food fresh, are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and are compostable.
The cotton wraps are made using organic ingredients: beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.

What will you do at the workshop?
Experienced tutors will guide you step-by-step through mixing ingredients, application, setting, finishing and maintenance. By the end of the workshop you’ll be making wraps like a pro.
It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.

Why take a beeswax wrap workshop?
If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce waste to landfill, reduce chemical-laden plastic food packaging or looking for ways to become more zero waste then this is for you. Single-use plastic products end up in landfill and in our oceans where the continue to leach harmful chemicals for years. Cling film takes as much as 500 years to degrade on land and breaks into millions of tiny pieces in the sea. Reducing your plastic use is great for you, your family and the planet.
Come join our workshop and make 3 wraps to take home with you. They make great eco gifts too!
Every small change adds up towards a more sustainable future.

Introduction to Clowning weekend with Holly Stoppit

Saturday 19 October - Sunday 20 October
10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Explore what it feels like to put judgement to one side and develop the confidence to follow your impulses, turn up your curiosity, play more and connect deeply and authentically with yourself and others.

Holly Stoppit has been delivering clowning workshops for adults in Bristol, South West England & Wales, for more than a decade. She is incredibly excited to be bringing her Introduction to Clowning weekend to Scotland for the first time ever.

Deadline for applications: Friday 13 September (scroll down for link to application form)

MORE ABOUT INTRODUCTION TO CLOWNING

Holly Stoppit’s Introduction to Clowning is a 2-day workshop which gently immerses you into the state of clown, where everything is possible and nothing is quite as it seems.

You will be led through a carefully-paced progression of group games and exercises, designed to free up your body, voice and imagination. You’ll be guided to mindfully anchor yourself in the present, authentically connect with the group and effortlessly enter into the states of ‘flow’ and ‘play’. From here, your clown will naturally start to emerge.

Clown is not a character you put on, it’s a gentle stripping back to a state of child-like wonderment, where pleasure, playfulness and exploration rule. Your clown is the most curious, spontaneous and authentic part of you and Holly delights in creating safe and non-judgemental environments full of invitations for clowns to come out to play.

Over the weekend, you’ll experience a multitude of technical comedy exercises, all geared towards helping you release more laughter from audiences. We’ll explore how physicality, breath, timing, rhythm, surprise and truth provoke laughter. You’ll discover how embracing and sharing your vulnerability through your clown can open up an audacious, laughter-laden quality of connection with audiences.

This training is ideal for emerging / professional performers of any discipline who wish to improve their stage presence, connection with audiences and ease on stage. But you don’t need to be a performer to come to clown school, over the last 13 years, Holly has taught this course to actors, bank managers, therapists, musicians, teachers, politicians, comedians, I.T specialists… If you are interested in cultivating a playful, light, deep and honest connection with yourself and others, then this is the course for you.

Introduction to Clowning lays the foundations for a plethora of advanced training courses.

What do other people say?

MYO Cloth Sanitary Pad - Join the Zero Waste Revolution

Saturday 19 October
10:30 am - 12:30 pm

What are DIY Reusable Cloth Sanitary Pads?
They’re an eco-friendly alternative to single-use sanitary pads. You can make a pad that suits you best. From regular monthly ones, panty liners as back up for your moon cup, post partum or stress incontinence pads or night pads. They’re wonderfully soft, made to measure and best of all, washable, ready for using again and again, month after month, year after year. Perfect for reducing health risks, reducing your plastic use, saving money and diverting from landfill.

What will I do at this class?
Soak up the knowledge and have fun sewing our fabulous tried and tested pad design from textiles you probably already have at home. We’ve done all the research, testing and hard work so you don’t have to. What shape? Which fabrics are best? What size? How many layers? Best care options? By the end of the class you’ll take home your very own made-to-measure pad and the skills to make many more plus the knowledge to look after them.

Why take this class?
It’s empowering! Get in control of what goes next to your skin, ditch the plastic and become a more conscious consumer.
It’s healthier, you’ll be reducing your exposure to synthetic fibres, dioxins, wood pulp that’s bleached in chlorine dioxide, leaching plastics, sodium polyacrylate crystals, artificial fragrances, adhesives and chemical gels. Reducing your risk of yeast infections, toxic shock syndrome, ovarian and cervical cancer and contact dermatitis. Many users even report reduced menstrual cramps.
It saves you money, around £13/month.

Yes, it’s a small step towards reducing your impact on the planet but each step adds up to a big impact. Us girls use 12-17,000 hygiene products in our lifetime, some are incinerated, most go to landfill and some are flushed- around 700,000 panty liners, 2.5 million tampons and 1.4 million sanitary towels in the UK every single day!
It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.
They make great eco gifts!

Yoga for creativity

Wednesday 23 October
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This series of beginner-friendly yoga classes has been designed to help you tap into your creativity and support you in finding your artistic outlet. The mind, body and soul are inseparable: each affects the other, as well as being affected by the outside world. In these yoga classes, we will move mindfully with the breath to become more aware of our body, thoughts and emotions.

As you practise awareness and experience new sensations in yoga class, notice how this starts to spill over into your day to day life. The practice encourages you to be confident and brave while keeping a sense of fun and light-heartedness. Yoga and creativity are naturally linked, both being strongly connected to expression of your instinct, or inner voice. Therefore these tailored yoga classes are sure to be the ideal support for your creative journey.
You are encouraged to bring a pen and paper to write down any ideas and to begin cultivating the habit of getting your thoughts out into the world.
