Last weekend me and my girlfriend Renée were teaching a movement workshop at Mind Your Body festival, organized by @yogaunderconstruction. Theme of the workshop was 'Partnering'. Trying to connect a little bit more with a person you are close with - partner/ friend/ family member - through our movements.
We used some really approachable, basic acrobatics for this. Helped by Nienke Huikeshoven. A teacher at the Youth Circus and enthusiastic Mindful Mover.
For me personally, it was really special to share my love for teaching with the person I love so much. During the spare moments we see each other every week I always bore my girlfriend with a lot of talking about movement. And about experiences of that week's classes. Now she knows I think. Especially during the preparation before the workshop. Because it didn't just involved talking, it involved two persons, both in the role of a teacher, creating, and trying to move together. We really clicked.
I can't speak for the rest, but I felt like everybody enjoyed it. Without ever having the feeling that I had to 'entertain' anybody. I feel like those classes are the best classes. If you were there too, what did you got out of the workshop?? Let us know by commenting on this.
