Welcome to the four-day intensive course of movement, meditation and neuroscience in Barcelona! Every morning, we’ll immerse into the bodily experience and neuroscientific knowledge with the WiseMotion method. In the afternoons, we’ll have interesting activities around the city. We invite you to enjoy the unique combination of a blissful retreat spirit and a vibrant city holiday.
The WiseMotion method improves brain health, holistic well-being and physical abilities with movement, meditation and neuroscience.
The WiseMotion workshops consist of movement practice, neuroscientific presentation and conversations. The workshops are designed to promote processes in concentration, stress-reduction, creativity and embodied communication. In addition, physical abilities such as the joint and muscle dynamics, relaxation and balance are improved. During the neuroscientific presentation, Dr. Hanna Poikonen clarifies the content using practical examples and connects the latest scientific discoveries to everyday life. During the conversations, the group deepens their knowledge about the topic of the workshop, based on the personal experiences of the participants and the neuroscientific approach.
The WiseMotion method is developed by Dr. Hanna Poikonen. She is a neuroscientist, dancer and movement specialist, and holds a PhD in the neuroscience of movement, dance and music (Faculty of Medicine, University of Helsinki, Finland). She has worked for five years at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ) in brain research and education focusing on the fields of prolonged pain, intelligence and creativity.
She has studied movement and meditation in cities such as New York (Gibney Dance, Movement Research), Barcelona (La Caldera, Institut del Teatre), Montreal. Tokyo and Berlin. Explorations in kung fu, tai chi, butoh and somatic methods have taught her a holistic approach to the body and mind.
She has toured with WiseMotion worldwide in institutions, festivals and wellness centers such as Harvard Medical School (USA), Swissotel Berlin (Germany), Kuopio Dance Festival (Finland), Joint Dynamics (Hong Kong), and Institut del Teatre (Barcelona).
