Dearest Students All
I'm looking forward to getting back into the sessions this week, for the discipline, structure, escape, depth of self-care and being together again, albeit in the saving grace of Zoom. Having been relatively sober-free for some two weeks now, my mind and body crave everything that brings real nutritional value, nutrition for the mind and body. I'm relieved to resume the world that's right for me. The world, that is, of Contrology, of breath, connection and movement. Can't wait to revitalise, reshape and escape with you! Keep safe.
My son and I managed, from time to time, to escape into our world of humour and belly laughs, while being hard hit by friends' personal tragedies, lifted by their joys, and despairing and debating the latest world news, not least scientific data and ramifications. We tried to find films that would keep our focus and the film that exceeded all, is, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Viola Davis IS the legend Ma Rainey. The late, young actor, Chadwick Boseman IS "Levee". Extraordinary, truthful and commited story telling. The cast and direction of this film released at the end of 2020, created out of the play written in 1982 playwright August Wilson, is a must-experience. You may have seen the play at the National? The film is one to behold.
For the record, London is in Tier 4 right now and therefore no Room sessions can take place. Zoom, from my studio, brings us together. Come join, any and all. You will be "admitted" into the session immediately, even if you're "late" There is an automatic "doorbell" entry system in place, I'll know you've arrived and let you in.
If you've got a ball, circle, or band, let me know at the beginning of the session and I'll cue them in.
Here are eleven Zoom links for week of 4th January 2021 (If there's a needed time that's not here, please tell me asap):

Room to Zoom Accounts
Please email me if you'd like an update. Some have chosen to use their Room credit and much has now melted into their Zoom pot, or Library pot, it's all working out beautifully.
Paying for Zooms
I mentioned there might be an increase from the New Year. However, there will be no increase due to the uncertainties around and the ramifications. So, the fee remains @£6 per session and £60 advance payments for ten Zooms. I will continue to send renewal emails, after you've attended ten sessions.
Always good to welcome new people and thank you for spreading the word about the Zoom sessions. There is no need to book for Zooms, just click the link and I'll "admit" you. No passwords or complicated invitations. If you'd like to introduce yourself, we can meet over Zoom or you can email me, etc. Welcome.
The library is open 24/7 for Relaxation to Advanced sessions. There are 89 sessions, all 89 available to you , all 89 are yours for less than £3 a week. Dip in and out of the sessions that fit your mood, at a time that's right for you. I will be catching up and adding the recent requests, this week and next.
Thank you for your continued fluidity. We'll meet again in 2021. We'll stand tall. We'll remain strong from the inside out, and meaningfully breathe to maintain and increase lung capacity. I look forward to seeing you this week and throughout 2021.
