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.

An odyssey through 20th century European chansons

From the Russian cabaret artist Alexander Vertinsky to Edith Piaf via the music of the Comedian Harmonists in the early 1930’s, Daniel Donskoy will perform German, Yiddish, French and Russian chansons, accompanied by Inga Davis-Rutter and her trio. Each evening will also include guest performances by London’s most acclaimed West End performers.

A Song Goes Round the World is transferring from St. James Studio after its premiere in May 2016, that was received with great critical acclaim.

***** ‘Truly Magical’ – Views from the Gods

**** ‘An outstanding mastery’ – Jonathan Baz

Donskoy’s background is as eclectic as the programme of this evening. He was born in Russia and raised in 1990’s Berlin, before coming to London via several years in Tel Aviv. A Song Goes Round the World is Donskoy’s first solo show; further acting credits include BBC4’s Detectorists, the ITV1 Drama Victoria as well as playing Jim O’Connor in Tennessee Williams’ Glass Menagerie at Nottingham Playhouse.

“In times of uncertainty relating to the European Union, this is a chance to bring Europe together through music – even if just for one evening”, says Donskoy.

The evening will include songs from life in the poor Parisian faubourgs, Yiddish theatre tales of loss and joy, songs sung by Russian political prisoners of the Tsar, witty German cabaret and much more.

Collaborative Artists’ latest major production You Won’t Succeed On Broadway, If You Don’t Have Any Jews was nominated for Best Off-West End Production at the 2016 WhatsOnStage awards.
