Life is movement and human beings live in and through movement. R. Steiner
Every person goes through the developmental process of growing and experiencing the increasing force of gravity.
In Bothmer gymnastics the individual takes a controlling hold, shaping their physical body (gestalt), and bringing it into a healthy relationship with the three dimensions of space.
The joys of movement and of mastering one’s own body, exploring its possibilities and testing the truth of the laws of physics are central to Bothmer Gymnastics.
It aims to overcome hindrances, creating well-being and a secure centre from which to become active. The stillness of the upright human body is the starting-point for much movement and Bothmer promotes this uprightness, increases balance, dexterity, awareness and concentration while improving self-confidence and self-esteem, preparing the body as an effective tool for the individuality to inhabit.
