11:00-13:00 TOUCHING & BEING TOUCHED | SILJA VIERMANN

14:00-16:00 THAI YOGA MASSAGE TECHNIQUES I CRISJAN ZÖLLNER
Thai Yoga massage can be understood as a sacred dance between two people and is much more than a purely physical form of treatment. It is performed with Metta.

16:00-18:00 IMPRINTING LOVE – EPIGENETICS & MORE I FEDERICA FIORE
