Theatre and Yoga share a fundamental truth:
we all want to connect.
They change the way you think, how you feel about yourself and how you are in the world.
Choose to connect, and make change.
ABOUT THEATRE YOGI
I'm Gemma, a West London based theatre director and yoga teacher. Yoga has formed part of my practice as a theatre director since 2008. I’ve used yoga with actors of all ages, fitness and body types. I've found it useful when directing Shakespeare, physical theatre, circus and even comedy.
I call myself the Theatre Yogi because I think yoga and theatre are intrinsically connected. They are political mediums that start with the very personal question of ‘who are you and what do you value’? Both mediums aim to connect people to themselves, and to humanity as a whole. Both make demands emotionally, spiritually and physically, and ultimately aim to ask the questions that make us better humans.
Practising yoga has made me stronger, flexible and more physically capable and I give you that training in my classes. Beyond that you will find yoga can transform and empower your whole life, creating focus, resilience and purpose. As one of my students says "it's a whole mind, body and spirit workout."
