Workshops 2020

Unfortunately due to the present situation (coronavirus), our workshop Fan Form (March 21) has been postponed. Also WTCQD for this year is cancelled but you can still enjoy last years event here.

“Dear Marsha – Just a few words to describe what a great session we all had at the Saturday workshop. I said all since everyone I saw was involved, irrespective of their level of knowledge. It was enjoyable and exhilarating and I look forward to the next one”. J.H.

“Thank you Marsha and David for another wonderful workshop – these workshops give me the incentive to practice more every day. We study the moves in detail and learn how each move affects a certain part of the body energizing us and helping us get the most out of our day and also enhancing our wellbeing! I would certainly recommend these workshops to everyone!” M.S.
