Workshop B - Picture Your Weekend & Beyond (hosted by Claire and Martina) - A relaxed creative afternoon where we bring the exquisite experience of the weekend onto paper. By drawing these special moments we can carry some of the magic of the Summer House Weekend out into our daily lives.
Workshop C - Amy HoopLovin's Hoola-Hoop Danceshop - Come and discover a whole new world within a hoola-hoop! Breathe into your hips as they begin to loosen more and more. Unlock parts of your body as you embark on your hoopdance journey. You may perhaps just have always wanted to get the hoop spinning for more than 3 rotations!
Workshop D - Pilates (hosted by Kasia) - bring a towel/mat and stretch into the day with this excellent body conditioning class. Please bring something to sit on - a towel, mat or blanket.
Flowing Out Of The Summer House (hosted by Faerie, Violet, Malika) - A free-flowing workshop that you can step into and leave whenever you want to. Our team of facilitators will lead you through short structures that help you gently close the connections you've made and return to your self as you leave this magical place
Final dinner and close of the weekend.
