"The teacher is brilliant! :) Very passionate and knowledgeable on the topic, conveying precise and easy to understand knowledge, experience  and enthusiasm along the course. Very friendly, approachable and generous in his support and feedback."

"Absolutely excellent and very unique. The training offers real insight into movement. Beyond categorized terms – and is also a space for personal growth and development. Very recommendable to all kinds of movement teachers."

"With its simplicity this training really enables one to focus and understand what "mindful" realy means. And by constantly emphasizing and explaining its importance it creates the safe space for it to be embodied."

"Personally, this has been an amazing and rich journey, connecting more to my body, physically and sensory, becoming curious and explorative, being more friendly and compassionate with my body and its processes. This course offered the space to go through a wide range of sensing, feelings, thoughts- from I feel nothing, I am not sure what is there... to overwhelming, humbling realizations about my self (mind, body, spirit)"

"Fun, collaborative, awe-inducing, educational, challenging, focused, and transformative. This is what comes to mind when I remember this module. I’m writing this feedback nearly 12 months after I tool the module. This week planted the seed for an awakening process for my awareness. The only thing that exists is right here right now and that’s true for everything everywhere."
