Stunning locations along Dorset and East Devon’s Jurassic Coast are the venue for a series of workshops aimed at people who want to get in touch with nature by exploring the movement of their own bodies.
The Walk of Life workshops are an innovative approach to using movement as a physical and creative process. They explore how simple movements work in relationship to the natural environment, with the potential to awaken vitality and heighten awareness both of one’s own body and one’s surroundings.
The Walk of Life programme is one of a number of projects supported by Creative Coast, the Arts Programme of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
The workshops are run by Helen Poynor, an internationally recognised movement teacher, director and performer whose approach has evolved out of 30 years of professional practice on four continents.
Workshops early this year include:
Spring Awakening, April 1 – 3:
combines Sumarah meditation with movement practice. A celebration of Spring – breathing deeply, shaking off constrictions and awakening body and senses to the joy of being alive. Held at Charmouth in Dorset.
Tide-lines, June 4-5:
responding moment by moment as the world changes around us. Also at Charmouth.
