This course is for humans with problems around anxiety who would like to discover or practise ways to regulate their emotions and feel supported in doing so. The body will be central in this course, we investigate our physiology, our triggers and what eases our stress or anxiety. This group will also offer a place where to practise and share the things that you already know help with your anxious thoughts or social anxieties. After this course you will have deepened the connection to your body and have made it into a warmer home to rest your weary head. You will have spent time in a space where you can be yourself and breathe as freely as you are able to while being supported and inspired. In the meetings: – Everything is based around consent – There is time to share what wants to be shared in the group – Sound, movement and breath practise – Yoga and mindfulness – Dance and movement About the facilitation: I will use my background in expressive arts therapy and my experience working as a therapist combined with my experience as a human with anxieties. I will also use my experience in working around the subject of consent and boundaries in groups to design exercises that match the needs of the group and the individuals.

How can we be playful and grow more self awareness? How many ways can we discover to become free in our dance and movement in connection with other moving, breathing bodies?
Dance more, explore more, dive deeper ♡
Due to covid the last mini series of contact improv had to be cancelled. In the meantime the Dutch government allows dance classes to take place again yet cautioning to take as much safety measures as possible. So, we are back with a new mini series in a small group including lot’s of disinfectant, alternative ways to move together in connection without touch and registering to be as safe as we can during this pandemic.
Dates: 10, 17 and 24 of March. Sign-up: email@example.com (limited spots) Costs: 60,- (45,- for students) Facilitator: Leonie der Kinderen
Contact Improv is a playful movement improvisation that is explored in contact with others. It involves the exploration of one’s body in relationship to others by using the fundamentals of sharing weight, touch, and movement awareness. Besides being fun and good exercise it also makes your brain release the hormone oxytocin which gives your mood a boost!
No experience is needed, just a curious mind
Since this workshop can includes touch we will pay special attention to communication and consent during the various exercises to make sure that everyone feels safe and comfortable.
