Munich Research Residency

I am currently working on plans for a week long movement research residency in Germany in collaboration with Alex Paal. Exploring ease and efficiency in acrobatics and partnering, the origin of movement in stillness, and developing a broader palette of textures for physical expressivity.

Past Events

The Gut Heart Connection

London Climbing Festival

7th May 2022

This workshop will focus on a practice of embodied mindfulness, exploring how we can tap into our senses and interoceptive experience (internal bodily sensations) to help us regulate and manage fear, adrenaline and commitment when climbing. This practice is relevant to climbers of all levels: whether you’re a newbie who is working on overcoming a fear of heights or a more advanced climber working on more challenging routes - knowing when to hold back and when to commit is key for sustaining an injury free practice in the long term.

Mobility Through Play

London Climbing Festival

7th May 2022

This workshop will provide you with games and tools that you can use in your warm up to develop functional range for adaptable hips and shoulders. When we practice strict poses or stretches we hit only one angle of stretch in our muscles, whereas when we climb we need to be able to hit every angle. This is where play comes in. By working in a dynamic and playful way with a partner, you will find yourself stretching in ways you might never have tried on your own. Build a strong, resilient and bendy body to take you further on the wall.

Intro to AcroYoga

London Climbing Festival

7th May 2022

Acroyoga is a fun and playful practice, but also one that involves the development of trust and good verbal and non verbal communication skills. Sharing this practice, whether with a friend or a partner, is a wonderful way to connect and laugh together. In this workshop we’ll work on key lifting techniques and searching for balance together, as well as breath techniques for finding flow and connection together in movement.
