In these classes we explore Body-Mind Centering* principles within Nature. We work eyes closed, vocalising, visualising and experiencing our anatomical structure and body systems.


We move with the environment, listening to the space with-in and outside us, embodying our own nature with the surrounding.
We develop a deep sense of embodiment together with your own individual and unique knowledge and awareness of the moving body. This can support and inspire both our everyday life situations and the wider adventures of life.


RISING IN THE BODY … touching the earth, opening the body to the sky

Please wear comfortable clothes and a few layers to adjust yourself to the possible changes of the weather, bring water. Feel free to bring a notebook with you if you like to make notes or draw during the session.


In case of rain or difficult weather we have to postpone the session to another time to be arranged with participants.

*Body-Mind Centering (BMCSM) is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and consciousness. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles.” (bodymindcentering.com)
