    (11) Putting It All Together

    Dan Peppiatt

    Make sure you do the Warm Up first and then get ready for some fun. This is a playful exercise using the grounding, stability, spaciousness and feelings of freedom that we’ve found. You will need something to make 3 marks on your floor – ideally 3 flat blocks but 3 pieces of sticky tape or 3 cushions will do.

    A continuation of Dan’s Spontaneity Class, here are more ways to encourage yourself to move in different ways. Before you start, remember to warm up your body with Spaciousness: The Warm Up Sequence. Then you will be ready to focus on using different body parts in spontaneous ways. Beginning in kneel, you will explore different movements in your hands, arms, fingers.

    A class to move the body away from mechanical repetitive movement patterns and into spontaneous, organic and intuitive freedom.

You will begin in a moving plank exercise, finding balance in a variety of ways, using different parts of the anatomy. And then we go onto our back to explore how movement feels there. Enjoy!

    What on Earth is Meditation all About?

    Dan 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.
