This is a unique opportunity to play some of the many village games and folk sports that were the main form of exercise in rural northern Europe until their decline in the 19th century.

These games challenge our strength and co-ordination through solving unusual physical challenges, contorting ourselves into strange shapes and using leverage or a partner to create resistance.

Some are played solo and some collectively - these will involve contact with other people so please do a lateral flow test and do not attend if it is positive or you have any symptoms of covid.

Drawing mainly from the research of Jorn Møller, we will also explore the social function that these games had and consider how our gym and regular classes fit into that tradition.
