Songstress Julia Palmer-Price (alias Ju-la-la) professional cellist, pianist, composer and teacher, came to Malvern after playing Jimi Hendrix with Nigel Kennedy in 1999, the pinnacle of a colourful career. A former resident at 8 Avenue Road, The (then) Grove (2000-2013), Julia and her late-husband Philip often opened their house as a Performance Arts venue and Julia conceived her Cello’ScooL, which, now 16 strong, regularly returns to perform at Elmslie House.

Julia has been singing since the cradle and welcomes All to enjoy SongS P A C E. Intended as a tonic! Classes begin by connecting with the breath adding gentle movements designed to get energy flowing; then, after tuning in with carefully chosen chants, Sol-fa (so good!) is introduced to train the inner ear, refine listening and pitch control; have fun learning well or little known, fave tunes, old and new, with some of Julia’s own compositions thrown in for good measure; till relaxing maybe with a meditation to finish.

As long as we live, there is never enough singing. ~ Martin Luther

Yoga with Three Counties Yoga

Sue has been practising yoga for 26 years. Little did she know that attendance at a local yoga class because of a need for relaxation was going to lead quite so far! She has studied and continues to study with several schools of yoga, for example Iyengar, Viniyoga and most recently Sivananda, but has not settled with any particular tradition. She is currently concentrating on Mahamudra meditation within the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition and is developing an interest in the healing yoga of that tradition. ? Sue has been a yoga teacher for over 20 years. She has concentrated mainly on setting up and teaching private mixed ability, adult classes but has very broad experience in teaching students of all ages, some on a one to one basis. She is committed to bringing yoga within the reach and understanding of all. Her specialisations include themed teaching and aspects of breathing, anatomy and physiology.

Chi Kung with Max Mainini

If you are looking to develop your sense of calmness and relaxation in an increasingly fast paced world, or to help keep your body and joints healthy, then chi kung is something you will enjoy.

What is it?
Roughly translated to ‘energy work’, practising Chi Kung enhances the flow of chi (vital energy) through the body. The exercises are often slow, gentle and flowing, and may take the form of static postures, slow movements and special walking exercises. These are often inspired by nature and help keep the body supple, invigorate and enhance body function and as well as helping to develop mental clarity and inner stillness.
