WORKSHOP 15-16 July @ USC-Sportscentrum Universum AMSTERDAM

(Mo)tion is a two day opportunity to dive into the movement perspective – ideas and concepts put into practice in the form of tools, physical tasks, riddles, play and structured materials.

This seminar will introduce participants from all levels of exposure to different forms of practice and thinking on movement, physicality and the body with reflections into our lives and being.

Movement is now recognized as the most potent force in developing our brains, bodies and awareness.

12 hours spread over 2 days, 10:00AM – 18:00PM on both days with a lunch break scheduled at 13:00-15:00

* No prior experience with any form of physical practice is required. The materials are constructed in a way that will challenge all levels.


Movement Perspectives – A lecture about about the approach, tools and conduct inside a cloud.

During the event, participants will be exposed to concepts such as:

Non-Linear Strength – Exploring the use of unknown parameters in order to get stronger in unknown tasks.

Conditional, Oriented Play – Using physical tasks to manufacture instant learning, techniques, solutions, and growth.

Flooring – Soft body, soft floor. Participants will be taught techniques in order make the floor their ally and not another enemy.

Coordination – The nature of the clumsy glitch and finding its resolution.

Movement Terminology – Developing proper terminology; body softening vs stretching and more megapixels in your motion.

Somatic Explorations – Learning to bring awareness into our practice and our lives through movement and stillness.
