An Invitation from Ladock WI

Ladock WI invites you to join them on Zoom to hear guest speaker Elizabeth Gowing on Wednesday 28 October at 7:30pm.

Elizabeth is an experienced speaker and author, who lives in Kosovo, but is currently living in Cornwall. The title of this talk is Unlikely Positions in Unlikely Places: A Yoga Journey around Britain.

Elizabeth says:

This talk tells the stories from my explorations of yoga. I am not a likely yogini; I am too fond of chocolate and to-do lists, and sometimes fall over on my mat. So this is not a ‘how to’ talk; it’s given by an explorer rather than an expert. Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, it evokes the characters and communities met along a fascinating journey, from doga (yes, yoga with your dog) to my dripping day of ‘hot yoga’, hanging upside down in aerial yoga, to yoga in prisons and with asylum-seekers, children and stand-up paddleboards. It will be of interest to those who love Britain – its quirkiness and its multiple layered communities, from inner city community centres to exclusive spas. It will also be loved by the ‘armchair yogini’ and the armchair traveller. It’s a light introduction to some mind-bending ways that ancient positions can find new homes, and ordinary and extraordinary people in crisis can find peace and a sense of belonging. It is suitable for all interests, not only those with an interest in yoga.

If you’re interested in attending, please contact Sandra Buck on sanbuck@gmail.com with your name, WI and email address. The Zoom link will then be sent to you. There is no charge.
