This somatic and creative retreat is open to 5F L1 practitioners (family-friendly) and is limited to 20 people.


Optimize your teaching with the 5F manual approach, a practical and specific methodology for helping your clients perform spiral movements.

These therapeutic modules are open to movement practitioners with experience with the Five Filaments system. The 5F Manual Method provides an appropriate context to assist clients by offering intelligent support with optimal spiral movement patterns, given the constraints of our human species, combined with your movement modality (yoga, Pilates, bodywork, etc.).

You are a movement educator with some experience of the Five Filaments in your practice of spiral movement. If you have a level 1 5F practitioner qualification (which means that you have followed a 15-hour immersion with Karen or Célina or a 20-hour Practicum course or you are following the 5F Specialist course), then you are ready to learn the 5F manual method.

Each day will begin and end with 5 Filaments Flow movement practices, accessible to all, followed by creative workshops and free time to enjoy the magic of the place, bathe, rest, share and regenerate intensely in contact with Nature.

Célina Hwang and Dr Karen Kirkness combine over 50 years of experience in the art of transmitting movement.

They meet as colleagues in their joint work as educators in the fascia research community, each passionate about the power of optimizing health outcomes by facilitating spiral movement.
