Movement & Words
Film, Body and Space with Brenda Waite and Anna Cady.
This workshop will bring us into our three dimensional body connecting through the layers of our tissue into a deeper relationship with our physical presence, each other and our surroundings.
Playing within spatial frames we will look at how we perceive and inhabit space, our presence and position within an image and what that communicates.
Anna will propose short creative writing exercises to find words to express what effect screened film has on the senses / the body allowing a rich range of movement to unfold.
When: 12th OR 13th June, 2021
Time: 10 – 2.30pm (30min lunch break, please arrive at 9.50am)

I am a performance practitioner of physical theatre and dance whose work is grounded in practises that accentuate ‘live-ness’. My projects revolve around fostering connection with others, our physical surroundings and personal narratives.
My intention, in making films co-creatively with artists and non-artists, is to enable conversations about differing points of view. Site specific installations combine performance, dance, music and poetry.
Classes & Sessions
I have been practising yoga since 2002 and been teaching since 2017. I have a background in dance and dance teaching and this exploration in movement has lead me to the transformative practice of yoga.
My classes aim to be down to earth and accessible to all. My classes focus on breath and moving with intention as well as being physically challenging. There is a focus on precision as well as providing a chance to flow and for deep relaxation.
I am a registered member of Yoga Alliance UK.

Join Yuliya Andrews for her Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga class.
My classes are a beautiful fusion of ancient teachings with a modern approach. They are a blend of the Ashtanga Primary Series and more advanced series combined with funky Vinyasa Flows to bring you the most benefit out of this powerful practice. They are flowing sequences of postures designed to strengthen your body, relax your mind and help you to find harmony in this increasingly busy world. They consist of Pranayama (breathing techniques), Asana (postures) and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation).
My group classes are a moderate level suitable for beginners and advanced students with modifications offered to explore the postures safely and deeply.
Organically grown group of dancers meet fortnightly to explore the connection between movement, sound, self and the others.

Hello! My name is Salacia, 300hr Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher based in Gloucestershire, here to guide you through this beautiful practice of unity and connection, that is yoga.
My intention is to hold a safe space with a light hearted, joyful approach in every class, in order for every individual to freely delve into the practice through expression and creativity. I teach a strong, fluid, ‘dance’ style Vinyasa practice with a deep rooted holistic approach and a strong emphasis on breath.
A lot of my classes include themes of the five natural elements of life – Earth, Water, Fire and Air, as well as Chakras and keeping the focus on our energetic body. I can’t wait to share this practice with you. See you on the mat!

Anne has been teaching yoga for over twenty years. Initially in London where she trained, and then in Gloucestershire, she follows a form of yoga that works to realign the body so that it moves more effectively.
Yoga is not about getting into strange postures, rather, yoga is about working with the spine and the breath to allow the body to move with greater ease. We need to be kind to the body and develop greater body awareness.
