Language & teacher(s) English

Mindfulness as a silent and static affair? Not in this course. We turn our attention inwards, focus on breathing as well as letting our body move.

We start by grounding and focusing on our body awareness. Once our mind and breath have calmed down, a series of guided improvisations bring us to a deeper level of awareness and freedom of movement.

For this workshop, Francesca draws on her background as a yoga and dance teacher. She draws inspiration from various dance improvisation techniques, Hatha yoga, mindfulness techniques and somatic practices.


This course will be taught in English. Wear clothes that allow you to move easily and bring a bottle of water. We dance barefoot.

Level of experience

Level X: for everyone. Prior knowledge around dance, yoga or mindfulness is not required and this workshop is sure to be enriching even for experienced participants.
