Self-understanding through physical practice.

Do you want to have a pain-free body, become able to regulate your mood and in the process understand yourself a bit better? Tensions in our body and vicious loops of internal dialogue often stand in the way of our experience of life. What if I told you that there are methods that could help you resolve these problems.

 

Physical Training & Games

Physical training is based on Fighting Monkey Practice. This practice will help you to improve your posture, interconnect your whole body to a remarkable degree, and awaken a sense of aliveness and playfulness in your body and bodily expression through myriad movement situations. 

Spontaneous Movement & Self-Expression

Through lying-down body work I will offer you a safe space where without judgment or expectations you will learn to release tension and deepen your experience of your body by developing a sense of trust in its sensations and spontaneous movements. Throughout these sessions you will also learn about experience-based expression.

Observational Practice

Observational practices are exercises and introspective tasks that you can practice throughout your day, at specific times or situations to get a better grasp of your conditioned beliefs, attention-fixations and physical responses to life’s problems, challenges and opportunities.

The main practice is practice

Training can be done at any time during your day. Practice is applied and refined throughout the day.
The aim is to apply this work in the midst of daily life.

“Olivier, from the moment we met I have felt deep interest in who I am, my life experiences and the journey that brought me to my essence and personal mission.

Movement is a means, not a goal.” - Jan Adins, entrepreneurial coach
