Event description
A pilates-based session focusing on your breath, encouraging you to tune in to your body and its natural alignment

About this Event

Join Clod Ensemble Associate Artist Ellen Yilma for a pilates-based movement session on Tuesday mornings.

These sessions will offer you a quiet space to focus on your breath and tune in to your body and its natural alignment. You’ll be guided through the basic principles of pilates and some movement sequences to help improve your mental focus, coordination and an awareness of your deep core before moving into your day.

All you need is a space to lie down, on the floor or a mat.

Ellen Yilma is a dance artist and teacher and has performed and freelanced for various companies and choreographers; Richard Alston Dance Company, Clod Ensemble, Tavaziva, Akademi (in collaboration with Jose Agudo) and others.

This morning movement session is part of our Reboot Spring 2021 season, Bodies of Knowledge.

The programme celebrates the range of experience, expertise and unique perspective of the performers that work with Clod Ensemble. They are extraordinary artists with bodies of knowledge that extend well beyond the work of one company or choreographer.

They hold an incredible variety of movement languages within their own bodies - having worked with many choreographers and theatre makers including Pina Bausch, Jacques Lecoq, Hofesh Schecter, Liv Lorent, Wayne McGregor, Akram Khan, Lea Anderson, Holly Blakey and Clod Ensemble as well as creating their own work.

They offer a range of morning sessions to start the day as well as workshops which combine writing, drawing and sculpture, origami and movement.
