Development of SELF
Our games promote self development on a physical, cognitive and emotional level. Physically, you’ll improve your fitness and coordination. You’ll build on your existing physical skills and develop new ones. On a cognitive level, our games help to build new neural pathways in the brain - say hello to healthy new habits, thoughts and behaviours. Emotionally, you are provided with opportunities to develop emotional resilience and confidence in your abilities. Through our playful movement games, you can express and explore different emotions in a healthy and safe way.
Development of COMMUNITY
When you move together with your community the relationship you create deeper emotional bonds and develop your interconnectedness with others. Studies show that depression and other mental health issues are less prevalent for people that play active roles in their communities.
Development of RELATIONSHIPS
Our games provide you with opportunities to move with others, mirroring and attuning to one another. Develop deeper emotional connections by letting your body do the talking. You will enhance skills like cooperation, teamwork and practice nurturing touch. And, let’s be honest, moving together can be way more fun than moving alone.
Connection with OTHERS
Moving and playing with others, you invite a meeting between two separate bodies. Moving together creates something special, relating to one another in a non-verbal way. You begin to develop understanding and respect towards your similarities and differences, becoming more empathetic, compassionate and sensitive to one another’s needs.
Connection with the WORLD
Movement is fundamental to all life - it is primal, functional, animalistic and grounding. Our games invite you to connect to and explore your relationships and environment in an intuitive, open-minded way. Adopt a playful mindset and create a deeper connection with the world around you.
Connection with YOURSELF
When you play our games, you will become aware of not only your physical body but your thoughts and feelings too - deepening your awareness and understanding of self. You might even find that after some time engaging in active play, you begin to take better care of yourself in other aspects of your life.

Playfulness within YOURSELF
Connect to your inner child, be curious and explore! When you play, you can move from your comfort zone and find new possibilities that can help to unlock your full potential. You can find joy in simple acts, without any goals, winners or losers, which creates a sense of freedom and joy. Playfulness also allows you to explore and release emotions through creative expression in a safe and healthy way.
Playfulness in RELATIONSHIPS
By exploring playfulness in your relationships with others, there is no goal beyond simply being present together and having fun. But that doesn’t diminish the benefits! Through play, we can empower others and feel empowered, re-shaping our bodies and identities - anything can be possible in a playful world. Play is important for social development because it helps us to learn how to interact with others and take risks in a low cost environment. Play provides us with opportunities to share thoughts and ideas, to listen, and to compromise, enhancing our relationships with others.
Playfulness in the WORLD
In play, we explore the world in new and curious ways; the world becomes our playground. Play invites us to conceptualize, brainstorm, and exercise critical thinking skills - re-imaging the possibilities of the world around us.
