This retreat is for the ones who are looking for ways to maintain or improve their wellbeing starting from inside – through self-awareness and body movement which reaches towards harmony of the body, mind and environment. We will immerse in movement exercises and latest neuroscience to understand the complementing sides of wellbeing: the hormonal, neuronal and biological processes in us, and our subjective experience of being alive. The retreat does not require prior knowledge in movement or science and you can join at any point of your healing or preventative health process.

Meet the instructor

The retreat is given by the neuroscientist and dancer Dr. Hanna Poikonen. For the past decades, she has dedicated to science, arts and movement through brain research on expertise, learning, mental health and creative movement at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich and Örebro University Hospital in Sweden, and through practice in dance, martial arts and somatic methods in Barcelona, Helsinki, Berlin, Montreal, New York and Tokyo. Since 2018, she has toured with the WiseMotion method in institutions, festivals and wellness centers, like Harvard Medical School (USA), Technical University of Berlin (Germany), Brain Film Fest Barcelona (Spain), Dublin Dance Festival (Ireland), Six Senses (Portugal and Spain) and Joali Being (Maldives).
