Vortex Workshop on 15th August, 2021

Vortical Motion Patterning (VMP); Worksop in the woods
Your mind is at the centren of your cosmos and a cosmos is at the centre of your mind. The moving body is the key to this VORTEX.
VMP combines Indian Clubs and Han-bo staffs with free body movement patterns to explore this statement. Body, mind and breath converge within specific patterning and forms. The body is strengthened and invigorated; the mind and nervous system stimulated and calmed. 
The woodland setting provides an idyllic environment for moment. A purpose built yoga platform plus fire pit and eco-latrines create a perfect outdoor studio.

Vortical Motion Patterning is a product of the lockdown. An exploration of dance, qigong and martial arts (indian Clubs and Japanese Han-bo). This unique and creative movement training is the product of choreographer and artist Laurie Booth.
In this workshop Laurie will be looking specifically at the forms  he calls ‘Monkey King’ and ‘the Vortex’.
