PLAYFIGHT: WHEN WRESTLING AND MINDFULNESS COME TOGETHER
PLAYFIGHT is a powerful tool of self-knowledge and transformation. We Playfight to get to know ourselves more, our strength, our inner power and how to use it consciously in relationship with others. Playfights is a safe and conscious space to express our own inner conscious warrior.
We use a unique formula that combines wrestling and mindfulness: wrestling to engage the body and the strength in a safe and respectful way; mindfulness to observe what happens on a deeper level. What emotions are triggered, what unconscious patterns become evident, and how can I play (my life) in a different way.
Playfight is not a solo journey, but a group practice. We gather in circle, and we Playfight in the middle. We bond, we relate and we support each other.
We use the game of wrestling but there are no winners or losers. We use our strength but we don't hurt each other. We train our conscious warrior to develop inner peace. Welcome to Playfight!
