He has his own artistic group that performs traditional dance and music from Guinea. He began dancing from childhood, he loved to dance so much that he didn’t agree with his parent’s will. They wanted him to continue music line in his family but Mohamed wanted to be a dancer. From the age of 7, he began his professional training with the SAAMATO ballet.

He then went on to dance with two national ensembles, Ballet National Djoliba and Percussion de Guinée before becoming choreographer for the world famous Circus Baobab. During this time he also founded and directed many private ballets and groups including AJK Danse, Ballet Touruna, Percussion de Coursa, Ballet Labaya, Ballet Frigyagbe and Tamtam Plus. He then left Guinea for Senegal where he became the artistic director of Ballet Bougarabou and Gambia where he was artistic director of Tamala Drum and Dance. Almamy has won several prizes for his dancing, including best actor/dancer in the Festival d’Alliances of 2003, a festival in which all the private ballets in Conakry compete, and he has been highly acclaimed by Djembe master Mamady Keita.

The winter months are a perfect time to slow things down – in this workshop, we will be slowing down and moving through some deep hip openers to not only deepen our splits but to create space. I often think of the hips as the ‘junk draw’ of the body – the place where you throw things in to forget about them and not deal with them – we will be opening up this space, cracking open our hearts and shifting through those emotions that have become stuck.

Most of the time in yoga it’s not necessarily how strong or flexible you are, it’s about how you approach pose, it’s about getting to know your body, tuning in and coming back to yourself.

Together we will work with the breath and the body to create a flow that will open up the hips and deepen your splits. These flows will challenge you to find comfort in the uncomfortable and calm your mind when it starts to wander. My favourite part of my own practice is finding new and fun ways to transition into poses and I can’t wait to share my favourite creative flows with you!

You will leave feeling inspired, refreshed and empowered!

Please bring –

  • a pair of long socks
  • an eye mask or headband to use as a blindfold

The studio has yoga mats, blocks and blankets but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
