In a nutshell:

 
  • If you feel like you need more ease, joy and fun in your life.

  • When you finally want to break out of the daily grind.

  • And if your therapy sessions are too top-heavy for you.

Then I have an offer for you. Something that finally gives you the opportunity to take new perspectives, try something new and experience a unique combination of lightness and depth! Namely: IMPROVISATIONAL THEATER!

  • Leaving your comfort zone and having fun anyway (or because of it). 

  • To feel free and light and just to enjoy the moment.

  • To consciously perceive your head, heart and body again and to give your emotions space.

  • Trying things out, making mistakes and slipping into new roles without fear of judgement.

  • To train your own and external perception.

  • To take a new perspective and deal with your personal “backpack”, so to speak.

  • To be who you are, with all your facets.

  • Become more aware of your own limits.

My unique improvisational theater course gives you the opportunity in a playful way:

My improvisational theater course offers you these advantages:

Fun and Laugh and the feeling of lightness make you forget your everyday worries and stress.

What others say about my improv course:

With her warm, funny and sensitive nature, Andi creates a space for tension and relaxation, slapstick and depth. It offers opportunities to break new ground or simply to be entertained, creates connections inside and outside, inspires and gently challenges.

barbara

Taking the improv course with Ändi was one of the best decisions of the year. There is a lot of laughter in class, but there is always room to express more serious feelings. There is no right or wrong, which Ändi emphasizes again and again, and that makes the whole thing very relaxed. Ändi is very good at responding to each individual, always finds something positive to say and spreads a good mood just by laughing!

I would recommend the course to anyone who would like to laugh and have fun with other people once a week and to anyone who wants to learn about themselves by taking on different roles

Andrea is a talent: every evening she knows how to get everyone in the mood and take them on a journey of discovery of improv theatre. With her type of guidance, even shy and inexperienced people dare to experiment. How much joy to evoke. Let yourself be surprised by what is dormant in you.

Matthew

At ÄYou immediately feel comfortable and accepted. Which is very important because in the improv you totally should open.

I recommend the course to everyone who needs a break from everyday life, who wants to test a new side of themselves and, above all, who wants to have fun and

want to laugh. Ändi makes the course varied and interesting.

Nadine

What I liked most about the course was that there was nothing to be embarrassed about. The group always stuck together, even when things weren't going so well. Andrea was very appreciative and empathetic towards all participants. The atmosphere was consistently cheerful and positive. I would recommend the course to both seasoned improv fans and newbies looking to step out of their comfort zone. I learned something at every rehearsal!

Joachim

I thought the structure of the lessons was great. The demands increased and in the 7th lesson it was also exciting to see how improv theater also affects you or is a challenge to dare / to show / to perceive each other etc.

That actually corresponds to your last question, what is it connected to life. For me, letting go of ideas about how good something should be is also very important. It's nice to be able to practice just following the first impulses and not looking for the "best".

 

Newly learnedI don't have to pay more attention to the other person and not to implement my ideas on my own. This requires a lot of alertness from me. I've also learned (or am learning) more to let go and, as I said above, to take the first impulse and see what comes of it.

Maya

fun fun fun! Ändi has an extremely positive, lively and inspiring nature.

She gives constructive and at the same time always appreciative feedback. The exercises are very versatile, sometimes playful, sometimes challenging, sometimes in a group, in pairs or alone. There is also valuable theoretical knowledge about the rules and principles of theater sports/improv.

Martin

ÄWith her calm manner, ndi manages to get you out of everyday stress and into the creative, exciting, funny and endless expanse of improv theater! Sometimes you dive into deep emotional thoughts, and other times into the best and funniest telenovela story of the week! In improv you can freely test your limits, try out every character and invent the most bizarre stories with your fellow players. It's a lot of fun and is always challenging and surprising for yourself!

Hey I am

Ändi

Nice, you found my website! When I'm not eating Sprüngli chocolate, dancing or in a philosophical discussion, I help wonderful people like you to finally experience more lightness, fun, relaxation and depth.

 

I am able to do this not only thanks to my training as a coach and teacher, but also because of my 11-year acting career, which consists of a 3-year acting training, a stay at an acting school in Hollywood, and various private coaching sessions in the areas of improv acting, camera acting and stage acting. I also have the Reiki Master. But now I love using my own version in healing sessions. 

Through the combination of psychology, methodology, didactics, coaching and acting, I have found the opportunity with improvisational theater to help people like you to take on new perspectives. I love giving you new impulses for your life so that you can rediscover yourself and maybe reinvent yourself.

 

With exercises such as body scans, meditation, breathing exercises for perception and concentration as well as with the help of bodywork and visualization, I understand how to support you on your way to yourself and to give you the necessary framework so that you can surpass yourself._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

 

With me you can be who you are.

I'm happy for you!

Ändi
