Prayer - Breathing Space & Spiritual Backpacking
Breathing Space has not resumed since lock down. It used to meet in the lovely candle lit Sanctuary at St Mary’s on Tuesday evenings from 9.30pm, when doors would be closed at 9.45pm and meditation began, with a short prayer, 20 minutes’ silence, finishing at 10.15pm. We take the silence home with us as we end our day. Do join us for this very different prayer experience. You would be most welcome.

Community Run Classes:
Alice Crawford’s Adult Ballet Class
A beginner / intermediary ballet class taught by Senior Soloist, Alice Crawford from the English National Ballet.
All ages and abilities are welcome.
From an article with Kate Miranda at Putney Time & Leisure:
“I am touring White Lodge with Alice Crawford, who joined The Royal Ballet School in 1983 at the age of 11 and graduated to join the English National Ballet in 1990. She went on to become a senior soloist with ENB and retired in 2005 to teach floor barre to injured ballerinas. Alice was known for Clara in The Nutcracker and was named one of Princess Diana’s favourite ballerinas (Princess Diana was ENB’s patron). She lives in Putney with her family and last visited White Lodge for a reunion several years ago. Darcey Bussell was student a few years ahead of Alice and many of their friends now teach here.”

Our motto is: "Fun. Friendly. Fierce" so prepare to work hard but feel welcomed, smile and have a laugh. The first 40 minutes we are jumping, and the last 20 minutes we tone the body by lying on the trampolines. There are beginners in every session too, so don't worry about feeling self-conscious – you'll see everyone bouncing at their own pace. It usually takes 3 sessions to get used to all the bouncing and recognise the moves so stick with it... but here's a warning: its addictive!
