Kentro® Workshops

Angie at a desk


Angelika Thusius, founder of the KENTRO® Body Balance method, invites you to participate in her workshops. These workshops offer a deepening experience of Kentro. The classes are kept small with a 'Greek approach' to learning - an intimate setting which generates a heartful and inquisitive attitude to your body. Combining the Kentro centering movements with this attitude is the portal for your body to release old ‘holding patterns’ on a daily basis. You can look forward to moving with great freedom, as you are designed by Nature.

With Kentro (Greek for 'center') you can discover an efficient way to resolve muscle and joint pain yourself. You do not have to push your body "into shape" or "correct your posture." Merging the simple, practical Kentro movements with your ordinary activities lets your body foster effortless strength and ease, as you grow older. Kentro is a pleasurable 'recipe' for letting healthy motion happen, spontaneously.

Each day
my body
moves freely
and sweet
to meet
my soul
each day
