About the teacher
Loby works as an improvisation practitioner and teacher. He has a background in improv piano (since 1991) and theatre (Founder of the Theatregroup Vreemdwild in 2009) He organize performances with students from the Art Academy AKI/ ArtEZ Academie and provide performing workshops. Through play, people get connected and learn the most effective way through personal experiences.
Since 2014, he practice Japanese martial art Aikido (Aikikan dojo NL) and got more inspiration for the CI practice. The benefits from CI he believes are highly inspired from Aikido. Bringing people and being together through playfulness as they show their authentic selves in movements is the core motivation. CI shows benefits applicable to his daily life, like being mindful in the changes and to make a deeper connection with life itself and brings oneself more in the present moment.
He set up Kahbam in 2013, a CI group based in Enschede (NL) to combine all the different gathered perspectives of movements and disciplines in order to offer space to share movement experiences.
