Program & Workshops

Surfing 

The blissful act of flowing with, and gliding on water. It is the mother of all board sports, it already has been an art form among ancient cultures living near the ocean. The natural way to have an “oceanic experience” – the phenomena which psychologists call the feeling of being one with the universe.

Acro Yoga

A new movement culture that combines Yoga, Acrobatics and Thai Massage in a very sophisticated and playful way. It has strong communities of practitioners all over the world. It needs at least 2 people (“Base” & “Flyer”), in the beginning 3 people (a “Spotter” to help and secure). In “Therapeutic Flying” the Flyer stays more passive, as he receives a massage while flying. in “Acrobat Flying” the duo of Base and Flyer team up to expand into a common flow.

Contact Improvisation

Is a rapidly growing postmodern dance form that puts improvisation and an explorative approach into the center, rather than a fixed “movement-alphabet”. It opens a space of for researching new ways of being, moving and getting into contact with oneself, others and the world. For many people it opens up a magic box.

Tribal Shake

We gonna travel along pathways of movements which are still and since back in time in our cell memory. With a dash of an urban taste, we will explore the variety of the feminine and the masculine essence in its uniqueness. A class full of rythm and constant earthy, proud, flowy, wavy, circeling movements with an awareness of our senses until we connect with the inner self, the natural intuitive sensitivity- a deep and unforgettable presence.

Aquatic Research 

Brings Dance and Bodywork/Massage into the water – the pool as a movement laboratory.

Thai Massage

Some describe Thai Massage bluntly as “yoga for lazy people”. For the” receiver” this might be true, as it is a mixture of soft muscle stretches and compressions of energetic points and meridians. But for the “giver” the massage ritual is a prayer of loving kindness. Without a doubt exchanging this kind of bodywork is a delight not only for surfers who worked out in the water!

Ecstatic Dance

New!  … updated soon.

Jams/Open Space

Jams are the pulsating hearts of the communities of Acro Yoga, Contact Improvisation, massage or dance in water. It is the format that cultivates and celebrates not only the vast knowledge of techniques, principles and tricks of a specific discipline, but also nourishes and strengthens the community and the bonds of the individuals forming it. Open Space is a format for free movement or exchange of bodywork, in a mindful and playful atmosphere. It is also a space for learning and teaching with an each-one-teach-one-approach.
