Finding Balance - BRISTOL - 2013

Finding Balance - dynamic stability in movement 

a series of three short workshops 
with Fiona Wright


Thursdays 4.30-6.30pm
5th September
10th October
21st November

126 Hampton Road Bristol, BS6 6JE

Redland Meeting House
(Corner of Leyton Villas. Hampton Rd is parallel to Whiteladies Rd. Buses: 9 or 509)

Fee for each 2 hour workshop: £15 standard / £12 low income.
Early booking discounts available (£10 / £7 low income)


Drawing on ideas found in Awareness Through Movement we will work in guided lessons with the emphasis on independent process, always finding our own pace.             
The workshops aim to be as accessible and inclusive as possible - an opportunity to take some time and space to explore. No particular training is necessary, just an interest in discovering through your own movement experience - whether your focus is to inform your own work or to find more ease and spontaneity in everyday actions. Bring a mat and/or blanket for floor work and warm clothes.

Fiona Wright has a workshop approach that is influenced by many somatic practices and experiential anatomy, especially Awareness Through Movement. She is currently training to be a practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method.

One of her main teachers for many years has been Shelagh O'Neill:

Louise Coleman is a Performance Maker and Inclusive Practitioner. Working across the boundaries between theatre and dance, her work uses movement and autobiographical stories to experiment with challenging different understandings of the body, including (dis)ability. The Feldenkrais Method influences all of Louise’s work.

Fiona Wright has been making performances and teaching for over twenty years, working through choreography, writing and installation. Awareness Through Movement (Feldenkrais Method) has been her main route and influence towards somatic practices and experiential anatomy.
