Inspired by „Somatic Experiencing“ and „Tension Release Exercises“ we will explore how the human nervous system is handling stress. We will allow especially the autonomic part to release stress and with sensitized body awareness facilitate the unwinding of fascia tissue. In Contact (-Improvisation) we will play with the potential of Self- and Co-Regulation of our nervous system.

Furthermore we will explore and enjoy the interaction of Organs, Fascia and deep abdomial muscles and invite the juicy power of the "center" to support the spine in its mobility and vitality. Playing with developmental movement patterns we help the body to re-connect to deep sources of life energy. Fascial elasticity and smotheness facilitate effortlessness and joy in movement and being.
