Beginners/Gentle Yoga

Led by Julie Potter

This class is particularly suited to beginners, those returning to yoga having had a break, those with specific injuries or conditions or even those that consider themselves to be of a ‘certain age’ that might need a less challenging approach. We will cover general breathing practises, the basic and gentler postures, together with general information and possible discussion around movement and the potential difficulties we might come up against.

The aim will be to relax and enjoy.

The yoga I teach is an evolution of nearly 30 years of practice and study, with a broad experience of many styles and teachers. In recent years I have been moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential and ‘felt’ approach, influenced by teachers who have been inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.

Wed 12 Jan - 16 Feb (exc 2 Feb), Wed 2 Mar - 6 Apr
11am - 12.15pm
£10 per session, £35 per 5 week course, £42 per 6 week course

This class will take place both in person and online via Zoom.

Royal Opera House Live: Tosca

Encore screenings from the Royal Opera House.

Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter Cavaradossi and his sensuous lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, Chief of Police, with fatal results. Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel and Alexey Markov bring to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory: Puccini’s Tosca. From the demonic chords with which it famously begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan Kent’s intense production.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Approximately 205 minutes including two intervals.

Hi guys, Ed here. I am working up a new show.

Not a clue what it will feature yet, but doubtless it will be a loosey-goosey hour of sweaty horsing around, interspersed with desperately flicking through a notepad. Pop along if you’d like.

Intermediate Yoga

Led by Julie Potter

This class is suited to those who have been practising for at least 6. My intention for this class is to move our practise forward, explore different avenues and approaches to the traditional postures. We will be aiming to be going deeper into ‘awareness’ and ‘noticing’.

The yoga I teach is an evolution of over 20 years of practice and study, perhaps moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential approach. Whilst looking at traditional Hatha Yoga postures and pranayamas, I will be encouraging fun and freedom within the traditional structure, whilst taking into our awareness fundamental anatomical and functional aspects required by our bodies for maximum wellbeing benefits.

Wildfire (15)

Dir: Cathy Brady 2020 | 85 mins

Lauren and Kelly are inseparable sisters raised in a small town on the Irish border. Their lives were shattered with the mysterious death of their mother.

When her sister abruptly disappears, Lauren is left to pick up the pieces. She is suddenly confronted with the family’s dark and traumatic past when Kelly returns home after being reported missing for a whole year. With the intense sisterhood reignited, Kelly’s desire to unearth their history is not welcomed by all in the small town. Rumours and malice spread like wildfire, threatening to push them over the edge.

Art Themen Quartet (sax)

Tribute to the Three Tenors

A nostalgic look at the music of the Blue Note Era and the classic repertoire of the three tenor sax giants John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, and Joe Henderson. Much of this music was recorded at the classic Englewood cliffs Studio by the great visionary engineer Rudy Van Gelder. The bold harmonies and rhythms, the improvisational language and the spirit in which this music came together will be forever etched in western music history books.

A self-taught musician, Art Themen played tenor saxophone with a university jazz band while studying medicine at Cambridge.

After qualifying as a doctor, he moved to London and in the early 60s played in several blues and R&B bands. During this period he worked with Alexis Korner, Phil Seamen, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker and Long John Baldry. In the late 60s and early 70s his musical direction shifted towards jazz and he played with Barbara Thompson, Michael Garrick, Henry Lowther and Graham Collier.

In 1974 he began a long and particularly fruitful association with Stan Tracey, which continued into the 90s. He has also accompanied numerous visiting US jazzmen, including Al Haig, Red Rodney, George Coleman and Nat Adderley. A highly individual playing style marks Themen’s performances.
