Description

Florencia Lamarca spent many years as a professional dancer practicing the Gaga movement language in the well-known Batsheva Dance Company and draws from over a decade of experience as a somatic therapist based in Berlin. She has facilitated over 1.000 individual somatic therapy sessions. The combination of these professions and her extensive knowledge in those fields are what inspired her to create her own method: Fluentbody™. The depth of her understanding of bodies moving, feeling, expressing and healing enables a unique space for transformation and awakening of the potential that lies within you. Connecting movement, breath, rhythm, life, and the stories our bodies tell, she authentically paves the way for people to embody their power, softness, pleasure, courage, and much more.

Fluentbody™ is a practice of discovery, curiosity, and awareness. It's an exploration of how to show up with generosity in and for your body, mind, and each other through tools you can easily apply in your everyday life. It is an eye-opening, surprising journey into the many colors of your essence, a practice that offers direct access to more resilience, choice, wholeness, and an entry to the art of connecting – move by move, breath by breath.

The experience of the retreat offers you attunement to your natural ability to enjoy and regulate the wild orchestra of everyday information and turns life into a melody that you can float with. It is an opportunity to change patterns and strengthen your overall health through awareness. Because only by developing our attention can we recognize our automatic responses and stop whatever makes us suffer. By doing so we learn to expand our human experience and express our true potential. Here, we remember the treasures that exist inside of our body beyond thoughts, concepts, or ideas of who we should be.

During the retreat, you will raise your capacity for self-healing not only through Fluentbody™ but also through the opportunity of 1:1 somatic therapy sessions offered by André Laubner as part of the retreat package.

To enhance our collective experience we have chosen a little paradise corner on Earth: Wonderland, an outstanding healing center located on the idyllic island of Koh Phangan, in Thailand. The atmosphere of the space will feed our energies with grounding nature and amazing vegan & vegetarian food.

What have others said about this experience? 

I’ve finally found a method that allowed me to BE. To discover where my body wants to go, to ignite an astonishingly potent energy, the permission to be silly, to not keep it together, to gasp, to rest, to feel weight without collapsing, and to attune to how I want to express myself. It is pure freedom to me and my body that was held frozen for a long time. Many transformational experiences I had were possible because my mind now trusts my body to navigate its own process of setting me free”.

✈️ Travel Planning

Travel is NOT included in the package of this program. All participants are responsible for making their travel arrangements to arrive on the island of Koh Phangan by the start day of the immersion, on Match 5th, 2024. Check our suggestions for you: 

#1 - Fast and most convenient

The most direct way to get to Koh Phangan is to arrive by plane at the International Airport of Koh Samui (USM), the neighboring island. From there arrange a taxi to take you to the ferry to Thong Sala, Koh Phangan. The ferry runs regularly until 15:30 and it's a 30-minute ride. Beware, If you arrive later than this, you must spend one night in Koh Samui. The first ferry leaves at 8:00.

#2 - Cheaper and longer, but reliable and beautiful

Arrive by plane at the International Airport of Surat Thani (URT) on the mainland. From the airport, you can buy a bus + ferry ticket to the pier of Donsak and a ferry to Thong Sala, Koh Phangan, all together. The bus is comfortable and it takes 1h and 30 minutes to arrive at the ferry pier. The ferry takes around 2.5 hours ride. The ferry runs regularly until 17:30. Beware, If you arrive later than this, you must spend one night in Surat Thani. Plan to arrive at the URT airport no later than 3 pm. 

There are two ferries you can choose from and all of their website offers translation to English.
