Edward Clark

Edward Clark is the enigmatic creator of Tripsichore Yoga Theatre, the London-based yoga group, and has delighted audiences around the world with his sensual and lyric synthesis of yoga and performance art. Edward has been hailed as one of the most innovative practitioners of vinyasa yoga and until now, his techniques have only been taught to a very few.

The technique Tripsichore uses is a combination of many aspects of yoga. Says Edward, “We are quick to disclaim that what we do is dance. While there are dancers in the company, there are others who have never been in a dance studio. They meet on a common ground of pure yoga.”

 Vinyasa as defined by Tripsichore, is the evenly-metered flow of movement, breath, and thought resulting in a smooth, uninflected state of being. The techniques are known to bring about clarity and stability to one’s thoughts and actions. Tripsichore endeavours to do this in class and onstage.

 Edward’s yoga journey began in 1978, and counts such noteworthy names as Narayani and Giris Rabinovitch among his many teachers, while also holding huge admiration for the Ashtanga Vinyasa, Sivananda, Iyengar and Viniyoga schools of practice.

 With his company, he has worked daily for over a decade to devise and refine yoga techniques of asana, pranayama, pratayahara, dharana, and dhyana, taking time to perform his creations to fascinated and enthralled audiences worldwide.  Edward also served for 20 years as the Head Of Movement and Dance at the prestigious Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
