Playfully explore movement of your body to empower your mind

Dance, Movement, & Breathing

Hi there! We recently moved from the Netherlands to Greece, exciting stuff! Bear with us while we are updating our services and working on a new website in both English and Greek.

Γεια σας! Μετακομίσαμε πρόσφατα από την Ολλανδία στην Ελλάδα και είμαστε πολύ ενθουσιασμένοι! Καθώς ενημερώνουμε τις υπηρεσίες μας και δημιουργούμε έναν νέο ιστότοπο στα αγγλικά και στα ελληνικά, σας ευχαριστούμε για την υπομονή σας!

Where movement goes, energy flows

You are here because you want to reclaim time for yourself, feel a desire to move, and a need to relieve yourself of pressure and stress.

Maybe you have tried yoga, Pilates, dancing in your kitchen. But you miss the adventure.

The playful exploration and experimentation that brings your awareness into your body and takes you fully out of your mind and, for a moment, leaves behind the next thing on the to-do list.

Moving in an explorative manner is about having a structure but allowing yourself to move in your way and express yourself freely. To play with the possibilities of movement, come into flow, and find a deep sense of fun and connection to yourself.

The body suffers, the mind suffers.

In current society, we might feel pressure to move a certain way just as we feel pressure to look a certain way. To appear sexy, strong, attractive, successful.

The restriction of our authentic expression that comes from the reality of living by society’s standards and not by our own values, creates chronic stress and fatigue.

Nature intended us to be movers, explorers, and creators. So, give yourself permission to return to this inner truth of curiosity, creativity, and exploration, away from imposed structures and choreographed movements.

Creative self-expression leads you to experience a sense of fullness, nourishment, and centeredness.

From there, you will have more energy, inspiration, innovation, and resilience to face your fears and bring your values, your wishes, your existence as a human into being.

Let yourself be free in unashamed self-expression. Reclaim yourself.

Empowering the body will inevitably empower the mind

The potential for escape, healing, and growth is there; it is available to everyone with a body.

Instead of focusing on how the body looks, shift focus to what it can do. It can breathe, it can move in space, it can connect you to another human being.

By exploring the potential of your body in movement, you can build physical strength.

Empowering the body will create physical resilience, your lungs will be completely ventilated, your heart will be flexible to different heart rates; these are medical indicators for health.

With an empowered mind one gets self-confidence, self-belief, and courage to realize their dreams. When you are familiar with exploration, you are not afraid of failure but use every opportunity to learn, grow, and expand possibilities.

When you understand your space and capacity, when you have a strong center to come back to, you find mental resilience. Being able to navigate change without losing connection to your values is stabilizing in times of transitions.

In a fast-moving world that is always changing, this is an essential skill to remain peaceful, calm, and content.

Hi. I'm Katerina.

Dance & movement facilitator

I tried yoga. I tried Pilates. I tried ballet.

They all felt sub-optimal. Unsatisfying for me.

They didn’t suit my personality or character. And I definitely didn’t feel “at home” there.

I was busy trying to get the pose right. To look good.

Yet I was craving movement that felt good and stimulated my mind just enough to let go of busy thoughts.

Playing with possibilities of movement and focusing on what the body is doing, breathing, moving, co-ordinating, without an ideal pose or style of movement to achieve.

Often, I would put on music at home to just dance freely, but I missed direction.

I realised the power of letting go and allowing someone else to give the impulse. This is when you can be more in the moment and go deeper. The connection with others helps you to develop beyond what you would alone.

In my classes, when I say, “make circles and spirals with your elbow,” the task is specific, but the exact movement is not. Each person can be led by their elbow to move in their own way, immersing themselves in the moment and finding their own flow.

After being led in a creative dance session, I felt lighter. Rebalanced and recentred. I had cleared my mind and found a deep sense of satisfaction.

That’s what I want to open up for you too.

There aren’t many opportunities in life to explore freedom of movement.

If you feel inspired and curious to play in your creative self-expression, I am here for you. I see you, I hear you, and I want YOU in my classes!

Welcomed, Freedom, Self-love, Self-care, these are the things I felt with Katerina from the beginning

Creative Dance meet-up

I got to create a meditative atmosphere for the arrival of my baby, the movements, the music, the contact with my husband.
