Returning to Work

Greetings from the baby bubble.

It’s been a wonderful summer of getting to know our little Sage and spending time with friends and family.

I’m excited to announce that I’m slowly returning to teaching, Sunday night’s starting mid-September, and Thursday night’s beginning in October at Ocean and Crow Yoga. Both classes are Slow Yoga from 6-7:15pm. Hope to see you there.

I’ll be offering 3 workshops in October for the public on movement and photography at the Anvil Centre in New Westminster with Body Narratives Collective. See our Outreach Workshop page for more info, call 604 527 4640 or click here to register http://anvilcentre.com/register/

Sage and I have also been back to the dance studio, co-directing research through Project CPR. Body Narratives Collective (Julia Carr and I) are working towards a production, April 20-23rd, 2016 at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.

Here’s a little video David Cooper shot and put together for us capturing a few moments from our process. Thank you to all the dancers, Joel Destefano for his musical contributions, and Claire French for her mentorship.
