An event, on 21 August from 6-8pm, will draw the summer school to a conclusion and will include film screenings, durational performance and readings by the Scholars, to supplement the exhibited works. The exhibition will also be open. Please do join us.

Iyengar Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that emphasises detail, precision and alignment in the execution of the postures and breath control. The Iyengar method is a carefully graded system adapted for individual needs. Props, such as blocks and belts may be used to improve understanding of the postures. The class will consider how yoga practice might function as a discourse in exercise, serving to work ideology through the body. Fully qualified Iyengar Yoga teacher Arabella Wright will lead the class. Beginners are welcome and all equipment will be provided.
