participants arrange themselves out of each others' air-stream. the teacher may indicate such an arrangement, please follow as asked.

always keep a safe physical distance of at least 1,5m from each other.
- if you clearly express your consent in advance, the teacher -always
wearing a well-fitting mask- may come closer to you than this distance.
- you can always withdraw this permission at any time, effective immediately, no questions asked.

your contact-data will be recorded for possible Track & Tracing by municipal health services (GGD)
they will be stored in strict accordance with European and Dutch privacy regulations AVG/GDPR.
more information about how these are applied can be read here

it is vitally important that you only come if you haven't experienced any symptoms that could indicate a potential infection and development of COVID19, at least 24 hours in advance (especially coughing, sneezing, dizziness) and that you also have not been in contact with anyone who started experiencing them.

if you have to cancel for this reason, please

our payment will remain valid until you will be fully well/safe again, or be returned to you, if you prefer.

if you are not certain, it's better that you stay home and come back in 2 weeks.
please consider that you may be asymptomatic and now could be highly infectious for others, who may have a compromised health or immune system, but still are able to participate in and benefit from the class.

by making your reservation & participating in person, you indicate that you have read, understood, and will follow these measures, at any time. if you have any questions, or want to be sure, please send an e-mail or call.

thank you for caring!

why the blankets & extra clothing?

in the beginning we work very slowly and with minimal movements, lying, or sitting.
as a consequence, our bodies tend to cool down quickly, especially in fall/winter.
the blankets not only help you keep warm, but also give you a sense of privacy
which is very important and helpful for this kind of work.

why extra cushions?
cushions help you rest parts of your body in elevated positions, where a ball will more induce movement.
combinations of both are helpful as well.

can i bring balls of my own to work with?
yes, very much - do try them out & how they will work for you!

can i do this work when i have an injury?

yes, and especially then: this work has been specifically developed for preventing and healing injuries.
during class you will comfortably work at your own pace, and directly with your own perception.
you can always pause, take a break, even stop - you decide!

even more, this work helps you find out concretely where and how you can move without or less pain.
as a result, it will boost your healing process.

feel free to contact the teacher in advance if you are not certain or if you have a specific case that you would like to discuss


Kinetic Awareness® can be a valuable complement to professional physiotherapy, ostheopathy, chiropractic treatment, etc. and various kinds of psychotherapy but is NOT a replacement for them, unless this is expressly indicated by the teacher, who then must have the necessary qualifications.
