Terms and Conditions

Devote 5 days to yourself in this nature paradise in Tuscany, slowing down to your natural rhythm, relaxing, recharging, returning to inner silence. Befitting the Autumn season, this retreat is focused on discovering and reaping your inner wisdom. Using elements of dance improvisation, authentic movement and yoga, as well as non-judgemental forms of verbal communication, you will be accompanied on a journey to what nourishes you and makes you feel alive.

Enjoy the wonderful environment and surroundings that will support you in discovering your inner power and deep relaxation. Our sessions will take place indoors as well as outdoors, in the beautiful forests and at the nearby beaches, and will alternate between dance/movement and verbal communication.

This retreat is open to everyone (no previous experience required). Sessions will be facilitated in both English and German.

The following video contains testimonials by participants who took part in our Contact Improvisation, Yoga & Dance workshops in May 2016 (German version).

Kati & Ben

Kati

loves to be in movement, whether dancing in- or outdoors, standing on her head or being a mountain goat, dwelling through forests and rocky landscapes. As an anthropologist, holistic dance and yoga teacher, she follows her passion of studying and applying different ways of both verbal and nonverbal communication. Having practiced holistic movement forms like contact improvisation, yoga and authentic movement for many years, she is convinced and yet still astonished by the power and magic of transformation through simply opening paths to the inner self.

Ben

is at home in the mountains and finds creativity and inspiration in experiencing the ever changing landscapes and seasons. On a continual path to connect with people at a deeper level, he practices and teaches contact improvisation and works as a mentor, coaching people in self-reflection and self-realisation through insight. He is fascinated with and is endlessly exploring ways of being present, authentic and trusting in the here and now.
