Yoga in Pond Square @ Highgate United Reformed Church
Apr 24 @ 1:05 pm – 1:55 pm

Weekly, drop-in class – suitable for all levels, complete beginners welcome. Mats provided. Free parking. I teach Hatha yoga (with Yin, Scarivelli and Pilates influences) – a gentle style that still delivers strength and flexibility in a safe manner and I incorporate pranayama (breathing exercises) into all my classes. Classes are light-hearted, fun and enjoyable.

I tailor classes towards the needs of our modern society. For instance for computer users, to try and neutralise some of the negative effects of office work such as releasing hunched neck/shoulders, stretching the spine, releasing the hips and hamstrings after long periods of sitting. Hopefully, after each class, you will feel relaxed, re-energised, de-stressed, calm and a little bit stronger and stretchier! Come every week or just turn up to the occasional class.

I am well versed in the safety aspects of yoga and can provide modifications or alternatives to poses for anyone with injuries or medical conditions. I have public liability insurance and am a member of the British Wheel of Yoga. Check out my website for testimonials. I also teach private classes in your own home – contact me for details.

I also run a Thursday evening class 7.15pm to 8.30pm (£12) at Holly Lodge Community Centre, 30 Makepeace Avenue, London N6 6HL – but you’ll need to book in with me for this one as spaces are limited.

Winner of the Best Drummer at the 2017 British Jazz Award Clark Tracey has carved out a serious career for 40 years over and above being the son of his illustrious father Stan Tracey with whom he used to play; and whose legacy he keeps alive.

He has worked with many of the great American players, from Scott Hamilton and Johnny Griffin to Pharoah Sanders, as well as almost every leading British musician of the last thirty years.

Furthermore he has taken on the role of ‘mature mentor’ to many of the very many brilliant young players who seem to emerge on the jazz scene on a monthly basis. This is just such an exciting young group and they guarantee to deliver the hard bop message for which its leader is so revered

Brahms Small
By Gail Louw
Directed by John Burrows
Performed by Andrew Wheaton

27th – 29th April  
Friday & Saturday 7.30pm
Sunday 4pm

The story of a 20th century dad, his son & Brahms

Anton does his best but it’s a heartless and tough world out there – what with the Nazis, internment, a loveless marriage and a son he can’t communicate with. Being Brahms is a much better option, a world of soothing lullabies and the lovely Clara Schulmann to drool over, a world where everything seems so much clearer.

Multi award winning playwright Gail Louw blends a universal, heartfelt story about fathers and sons with the wondrous music of Johannes Brahms in this new one-man drama.

Gail Louw has her plays performed throughout the world: Duwayne, (Best New Play at Brighton Fringe), Blonde Poison (Argus Angel, Best of the Fest – San Francisco, South Africa and Sydney Opera House). Miss Dietrich Regrets (Naledi Award). And this is my friend Mr Laurel, with Jeffrey Holland (Edinburgh and tour), Two Sisters (Los Angeles and UK). Most recently is sell out UK tour of The Mitfords.  Oberon have published two collections of Gail’s plays.

Once described by The Stage as an actor of all parts, Andrew Wheaton has played everything from a dead body in a comedy thriller to multi-role ensemble work, and major roles in productions as diverse as Shakespeare and musicals in the West End and New York.

Tickets
£16 (£14 concession)
