Freedom in the Pelvis and Hips

Bath  21 - 22 April
2018

Obviously, this is what you need for dancing. But what about walking, or getting up from the floor, or sitting down easily? Or even other activities which give you joy… Let’s explore the range of possibilities here, and discover that everyday actions which might have got a bit limited, a bit stuck, can be easier, clearer and more delightful.

We can clarify the mystery of the position of the hip joints. Even if you can picture the location, the true place of bending may be unclear. It can vary between your two hips. And, then again, we often use our hips differently, with one habitually placed more forward, or lower.

There are powerful muscles in the pelvis and hips, which may defy awareness. Through movement, we can create a fuller sense of self - filling in the gaps we didn’t even realise we had. The result is more comfortable, more straightforward action.

We’ll be working in the Dojo, at Stillpoint, The Stoneyard, Old Orchard, Bath BA1 5AX
It’s not an obvious address - one year a few people got lost - so here's a map and some notes:

 

Stillpoint is about 10 minute’s walk from Bath Abbey in the centre of the city. Walk up Walcot Street (past Waitrose), and Old Orchard is a small lane down to the right. At the bottom, turn left, following the sign to the Dojo, which is up the steps. Add another 10 minutes if you're coming from the train station or the bus station.

Here’s a picture of the turning - sandwiched between Aqua and the Thai Restaurant. (The scaffolding's gone now, so it looks a bit different.)

There is no parking at Stillpoint - it’s possible to drop people off, but the parking there is private.

Mats and Blankets
It’s a wooden floor, so you will probably need a mat or blanket or both. I have a few spares I’ll bring. If you’re coming by train, and would like to reserve one of each, please let me know.

Contact details during the workshop
I will have access to emails, and you can phone or text on 07973 324035
