Reconnect with your body

Event info

We sit too much. It is a cliché, but that doesn’t make it less accurate — or any easier to change. Our current systems are designed to make us sit a lot, especially when doing intellectual work. Our body is not designed to sit for so many hours. However, just some minutes of regular exercise can already make a difference. 

Lidia and Anna from AVP are now certified energy coaches and know how to boost your energy through simple yet effective exercises, which they’ll introduce in this workshop. 

You can do the exercises in almost any setting: in an office, in a classroom, at home on a sofa, or at a gym — and there’s no need for any specific training, flexibility or outfit.

We will provide yoga mats for those who’d like to experience the exercises fully, but we will also show variations that can be done standing or on an office chair. So, no pressure; you can choose the level of physical activity that feels right for you.
