Fiona teaches two joyful flow-based technique workshops, one suitable for beginners and one for more advanced movers. She emphasizes alignment, breath, suspension and release, musicality and performance. A structured warm-up leads into longer set sequences with dynamic variations, travelling through the space, individual movement vocabulary and improvisation.
