Nadine Thouin's teaching approach is based on the development of personality and creativity of each participant. The course aims to bring each member to discover their own personal body language by developing a deeper awareness of physical, mental and creative/intuitive capacities. The individual teaching style pertains to a theatrical type of command over the body, which Nadine defines as “control by non-control” - mastering a perfect balance during each practice.

With more than 30 years of experience teaching her work, she has developed a unique, personal technique drawing on the essentials she has retained from her training with renouned international masters. Aiming towards participants becoming polyvalent, complete, and free from limits, she incorporates complementary techniques from disciplines such as dance, theatre, voice, gymnastic, Yoga, martial arts, Pilates, Min Tanaka as well as mechanics and body/mind therapies.
