Scaravelli, Yoga, Workshop, Touch, Catherine AnnisThe art of touch is so important both for humans and animals. When we stroke animals with care and attention, they respond by leaning into us, enjoying the contact. Touch is the first form of communication between mother and child, and can be a valuable tool in drawing attention to forgotten or sleepy areas of the body.

In this workshop, we’ll explore different approaches to touch, and how we can develop our yoga practice to discover:

  • how the quality of our touch can improve our sensitivity and awareness
  • the value of touch in revealing more supple and fluid approaches to movement
  • how touch can help us develop an ever evolving, responsive and inspiring yoga practice
  • how the concept of touch moves beyond the physical and into the psychological

The venue is home to Art’s Complex, a charitable organisation which aims to redress the imbalance between the number of artists working in Edinburgh and the affordable work-space that is available to them. It was a lengthy process between the years of 2008 and 2010 to secure leases for the various floors of the vacant St Margaret’s building.

Today, the space aims to inspire creativity in the local community through exhibitions, educational events and workshops, and through the it also week hosts a varying schedule of activities such as yoga, pilates and theatre. And of course there’s a range of studio and gallery spaces of all different sizes to hire for artists looking to exhibit their work in and around the city.
