BREATHWORK - SOLD OUT
From the start untill the end you breathe your whole life. It’s is a subconscious process which you can influence consciously. When you influence the breath, you instantly influence your state of being and vice versa. Breathe to relax, breathe to energise, breathe to connect, there are many ways to do it.

Although we take around 80% of our energy from oxygen, we don’t learn much about breathing. Besides the physical process there is the movement of the breath, or flow, that can make tensions and stress in the body ‘melt’ or release. We do these breathing exercises lying down. There is no breath work experience required, only a curious and open mind-set. Come join our conscious breathing session feeling renewed!

NATURAL MOVEMENT
In this class we explore our primal movement patterns and discover what our bodies are capable to do through the lens of evolutionary physiology and environmental adaptation. We work on our flexibility, strength and coordination by creating mobility chains looking at the way humans used to move and animals still do.

Mobility gives us options to move in different ways - the more mobile we become the more options our body has to respond from a muscle and tissue perspective. Organizing our body is more a neurophysiological process. Building up different and new ways to move leads to more and more neurological connections - what keeps our brain fit and healthy. There is no movement experience required, only a curious and playful mind-set.

Good to know: we don’t provide any pillows, mats or blankets; please bring your own so you can sit or lay down comfortably! Please wear a fitted shirt covering your shoulders due to the floor work we do during the class.
