WELLBEING FOR DIRECTORS – Presented in partnership with Wellbeing For The Arts & Stage Directors UK
When: Fri 31st August 12-2pm
Where: THE OSO ARTS CENTRE, 49 STATION ROAD, BARNES, LONDON SW13 0LF
Stage Directors UK and Wellbeing For The Arts have partnered up with the Unbroken Festival to offer this special workshop for directors. Many directors feel they have a responsibility of care towards their cast, so we have put together a workshop to help ensure that they are taking care of themselves first in able to then be able to provide a safe space for their actors. Led by Sian, a Kundalini Yoga Teacher, and Tom, a wellbeing coach and reiki practitioner, this workshop will provide you with a go-to toolkit of practices and techniques to prepare you for the working day and ensure that you are winding down at the end. Among other things, it will combine mindfulness practices, stress management exercises, breathing techniques and some light yoga postures to help bring you back into alignment with yourself when you need it!
