Saturday 7.3.2020 : Asana Practice and Contact Improvisation

Join this workshop ! We will practice Asana on the Yoga mat, we will leave the Yoga mat and go into movement, breathe more, sense, move towards Contact Improvisation. A beautiful journey awaits you ! Read more….

The Asana practice on the mat allows us to connect with our breath, movement and awareness. Within the clear boundaries of the Yoga mat, we experience the body’s movement possibilities with clarity. Contact Improvisation on the other hand…. is in comparison anarchistic. It is really only “limited” or framed by our innate and organic connection to Gravity and to Earth.

If the Asana practice teaches us actions, directions and positions, Contact Improvisation can teach us the lightness found within gravity.

In this workshop we will practice Asana on the Yoga mat, and we will enter the organic moving universe of Contact Improvisation. Both practices will be given the space and time they need and deserve, and the deeper connections and interactions between the two will be gently revealed. Join this beautiful journey and learn to experience yourself in movement, in gravity and in clarity, at once.

Where? Yoga at Lobe Block, Gesundbrunnen, Berlin.
When? Saturday 7.3.2020 starting at 14:00, going on until 16:30. To make it possible to start on time, please arrive 15 minutes before.

Cost: 25 Euros, or 17 Euros + check in via Urban Sports Club. Write me a short message, then either pay to secure your place, or drop in.

The Asana practice on the mat allows us to connect with our breath, movement and awareness. Within the clear boundaries of the Yoga mat, we experience the body’s movement possibilities with clarity. Contact Improvisation on the other hand…. is in comparison anarchistic. Choreographically, it is only framed by our innate and organic connection to gravity and to Earth.

If the Asana practice teaches us actions, directions and positions, Contact Improvisation can teach us the lightness found within gravity.

Asana Practice and Contact Improvisation

Sunday 19.1.2020 10:00 – 13:00 at yogaatlobeblock.de

The Asana practice on the mat is a wonderful movement practice. It connects breath, movement, attention and thought, and because it is anchored on the Yoga mat, it also allows us to experience the body’s movement possibilities with clarity.

Contact Improvisation on the other hand…. is in comparison anarchistic. It intentionally aims to break loose from all anchors but one: our innate and natural connection to gravity and to the earth. If the Asana practice translates movement to the language of the brain, Contact Improvisation tries to speak only Body.

Which is exactly why it is so exciting to practice both side by side !

In this workshop we do exactly that. We practice Asana on the Yoga mat, and we enter the organic moving universe of Contact Improvisation. Both practices are given the space and time they need and deserve, and the deeper connections and interactions between the two are gently revealed. Join this beautiful journey and learn to experience yourself in movement and in clarity, at once.

Michael is a Berlin-based performer and Yoga Teacher. He has studied Improvisation with teachers such as Nancy Stark Smith, Lilo Stahl, Rosalind Crisp, Sten Rudstrom and others. He has created and performed his own original solo work and has performed with the Berlin Ensemble Nico and the Navigators, directed by Nicola HĂĽmpel.

Cost: 25 Euros -OR-  17 Euros + check-in through Urban Sports Club.

Looking forward to move with you !

2020 ! New year, new things

The 1st of January is as good as any day to make new plans, to set intentions into motion.

With my 500 hour yoga teacher training now completed, i am looking forward to start this year with more of my energy available to implement my ideas, to try things out. I am very happy to launch a workshop series at Lobe Block which will offer space for an exploration of Asana Practice and the practice of Contact Improvisation.


“Asana practice and Contact Improvisation” is a workshop series that will take place at Lobe Block. Here is what i have to say about it:

The Asana practice on the mat is a wonderful movement practice. It connects breath, movement, attention and thought, and because it is anchored on the Yoga mat, it also allows us to experience the movement possibilities of the body with clarity.

Contact Improvisation on the other hand…. is in comparison anarchistic. It intentionally aims to break loose from all anchors but one, our innate and natural connection to gravity and to the earth. If the Asana practice translates movement to the language of the brain, Contact Improvisation tries to speak only Body.

Which is exactly why it is so exciting to practice both side by side !

In this workshop we do exactly that. We practice Asana on the Yoga mat, and we enter the organic moving universe of Contact Improvisation. Both practices are given the space and time they need and deserve, and the deeper connections and interactions between the two are gently revealed. Join this beautiful journey and learn to experience yourself in movement and in clarity, at once.

The workshop series will take place at Lobe Block, Wedding, Berlin. More information on dates and cost will be coming soon – here on the webpage, on the Lobe Block webpage and on facebook. So stay tuned !
And in the meantime come to the contact jam at Lobe Block every Saturday at 20:15, and get to know the beautiful space !
