Portrait of Olivier Bouquiaux, neurologist for 25 years and founder of the ASBL Fit Your Mind.
"We are here to help you. We welcome you free of charge for your first session. The best way to find out if it suits you is to try it, or risk not having tried it and regretting it.
So dare to take the step, the dance step!"
On Saturday 29th May, we could listen to Olivier Bouquiaux - founder of the non profit association Fit Your Mind and of the Kinésiphilia workshops - and Gauthier Dorban, member of the Board of Directors on the radio la première.
Interviewed for Fabienne Van de Meerssche's program "Les éclaireurs", they tell us about the history of the association and explain exercise therapy.
Listen to the program to discover the benefits of adapted activities.
Discover the portrait of Maité Guérin, artistic coordinator of the Kinésiphilia workshops
"I am convinced that positive stimulation can only be good in a social context where the body does not always have the opportunity to express itself. Dance brings physical and mental well-being through :
- muscle strengthening and stretching
- the use of rhythm and musicality
- imagination and creativity initiating movement
- the use of all the senses
- freedom of body expression and acceptance of each individuality
- the social aspect of the dance workshop and the strong bonds that are formed between dancers"
