  • Duration Varies
  • Zoom

Service Description

As a part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival online programme, Julia James-Griffiths will deliver three FREE online Mind To Move classes, and an excerpt sharing of The Box. Mind To Move is a mindful movement practice that focuses on supporting mental health and well-being needs through relaxation and mindful movement. All levels are welcome, no dance experience is necessary. The class begins with exercises in breathing, relaxation, and visualisation, before moving into led movement improvisation, and runs for 30 minutes. As a part of Mental Health Awareness Week, Julia will be sharing an excerpt of The Box after the second class. The Box is a dance theatre piece, choreographed by Julia, that explores the impact depression can have on an individual and how our society responds to it. There will be a short break after the class before the excerpt sharing of The Box will begin. The workshop will end with a Q&A and an opportunity for participants to share their thoughts on the work. For anyone who would like to attend just the excerpt sharing of The Box and not the class, please contact Julia. Dates of classes: Wednesday 5th May, 5:30 - 6pm Wednesday 12th May, 5:30 - 6:45pm (with excerpt sharing of The Box) Wednesday 19th May, 5:30 - 6pm To book email Julia: julia@jjgdance.com For more information: https://www.mhfestival.com/events/edinburgh-lothian/705-mind-to-move-2021
