    Play the Game: Joint Articulation

    Daniel Peppiatt

    This free movement exploration class is a really playful way to learn to articulate your joints. So often our joints can be stiff, and this class will help you to move within your own range of motion, but using really fun, playful moves. Dan demonstrates one way of playing with joint articulation, and this is a tool which you can use to express your own movements, in your own time, as he gives ideas for ways to move, rather than demonstrating what you can do right here right now. His demonstration may be more mobile than many of our own movements can be, just check out this fun tutorial and get some ideas for ways you can play with keeping your own joints mobile. You will need a tennis ball.

    What on Earth is Meditation all About?

    Daniel Peppiatt

    Most of us plunge into 'meditation' without even asking the fundamental questions; WHAT actually is it and WHY on earth might they want to do it. Others are scared of even trying because they don't understand WHAT or WHY and yet more give up too soon because they think that they are rubbish at it, probably through misunderstanding the 'WHAT'!! In this lighthearted chat, Dan asks the questions WHAT is meditation? WHY on earth would we want to spend time practising it? And if we decide that its for us then HOW might we go about starting.
