Bothmer News

Dear Bothmer Gymnasts and Friends,

We are happy to announce that the situation has relaxed to the point that most countries where we have courses are able to offer a local Summer Intensive. Some of the final details are yet to be available but below you will find information and invitations to various locations.

If you are planning a visit please remember to check on the individual country’s rules about entry and exit. Most countries are requiring proof of vaccine or negative test result to cross borders.

However, given these challenging times we wish you a movement, laughter and sunshine filled summer!

Danish Summer Bothmer
Monday, 26th to Friday, 30th July 2021
“The upright human being – how do we get up from the couch and stay upright?”
Greetings to all who love to move,
Once more we must miss our international summer intensive. So, we are offering this year again a Bothmer summer course in Denmark.
This year our summer week will take place at the Rudolf Steiner School in Vordingborg (one hour south of Copenhagen). Here we have a gym hall and sports field. You can sleep in the classrooms (please bring a mat and sleeping bag) or set up your tent outside without any additional fee.
Arrival time: Sunday 25th of July from 4 pm on.
Course starts on Monday at 9 am and ends Friday at 1pm.
The theme this year is “The Upright Human Being” – and who doesn´t need to be that in these times?
Food is organic and vegetarian.
The price for the whole course is 2000 DKK and includes all meals. Children under the age of 16 are free of charge. Before noon each day, it is all about Bothmer and after lunch it is all about sports, games, and basketball. Please note, that children cannot participate in the Bothmer classes in the mornings!  We kindly ask you to find your own child-care. The activities in the afternoon are for everybody and thus, are open for the children as well.
Wednesday afternoon is free. You can go to Knudshoved Odde (a beautiful natural habitat); you can do a tour of Vordingborg city with the Gåsetårnet (which is a tower from the early middle-ages) and Danmarks Borgcenter (museum about the castle, which once stood there). Vordingborg is seated right by the coast so swimming is also possible. The evenings are free for playing, singing, meditating, hanging and chilling out, for taking walks and of course for socializing.

Sports and games: Gyrd Ernstsen

May the Bothmer Force be with you!

Bothmer Gymnastics Training with Jessie Delage

8th to 15th July 2021 in Madrid
Dear Bothmer friends,
We are happy to announce that we will be meeting and continue practicing this beautiful gymnastics together. We will emphasis practice and repetition of the exercises, because it is practice that gives access to the experience of the forces of space.
Pedagogy is the theme of the year: understanding the child's development and its needs better as well as looking at how the exercises can accompany them. So we will continue the work of observation in pairs and in groups. We look forward to the games that you can bring and teach us. Hoping that, in this strong period that follows Pentecost, you will have the necessary strength to fulfil your tasks...
Hugs, Jessie
