Bodywork into Movement class with Jan-Ming Lee & Jayne Peake

You will be guided to find easeful ways to connect with your body and to explore enjoyable pathways into movement alone and in pairs

These workshops aim to gently guide us into finding easeful ways to connect with ourselves and our bodies to find enjoyment in moving alone and in pairs . We will explore sharing space and moving with one another introducing hands on work with a partner with sensitivity.

Exercises will include exploring the head and spine connection, spirals, qualities of touch and spatial awareness working with the anatomy with a sense of curiosity and non-judgment.

Come with a friend, partner or family member who you would like to explore this work together in this class.

There are up to 8 spots ( 4 pairs) available for each class.

Cost is £8 per person.  As a pair, please each book your individual space. If you don’t have a partner and you need help finding one, please email us in advance.

Jayne Peake enjoys creating relaxed spaces to guide people into an exploration of their own unique movement. After having trained as a Fitness Instructor and then in dance, she discovered Contact Improvisation, a practice that feeds her desire to move as a way of release, play and freedom. This practice inspires much of her current teaching, which focuses on facilitating explorations to expand our physical awareness and create new possibilities of moving our bodies.
