Pilates with Kirsten Larsen

“In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.” Joseph Pilates

TRX Classes trx

What is TRX?

It was developed by the Navy SEALS to ensure that wherever they were posted, they had an effective exercise programme.

Suspension Training® is a method of leveraged body weight exercises where you can set up the portable TRX Suspension Trainer anywhere and work out hundreds of different moves

The diversity of this training system and programming is unique in its development but simple to perform, though you will be challenged as every movement requires balance and core strength. If you do not have either, the TRX will develop it and take care of all the neglected muscle groups your regular program misses. This can be done as a supplemental plan for athletes or it can be a stand alone program for people at every level of fitness.

The workout helps you increase strength, flexibility, balance and choose your own intensity level.

Would you like to get fit and healthy for the summer? Then come and join our fun group for TRX on the following days of the week.

What we offer: 45 minutes of cardiovascular and strengthening exercises that includes your baby/toddler. Class format is flexible so you can adapt the exercises according to your fitness level and to the mood of your child (meaning if baby is napping, let them nap and enjoy the exercise; if baby is awake, you will use them as resistance and entertain them at the same time!) Expat mothers and Danes have attended these classes and the expat moms found that an additional benefit of this class is meeting and bonding with other mothers. Classes will be conducted in English.

Instructor – April Koskinen: I am an American trained and licensed physiotherapist with 9 years of professional physiotherapy experience. I am also a mom and understand the importance of exercise and the difficulty of finding time to exercise with a child around.

Autumn Performances for Children and their familiesForår Plakat 07
Theatre, Lunch, and a Treat for the Imagination

Dates: 13 – 16 October 2014
Location: Sølyst, 2930 Klampenborg

Every fall Filiorum joins forces with Sølyst and invites you into an
autumnal universe to explore all the senses and make the most of
opportunities to immerse ourselves in theatre performances and play. Four
days with four different theatre performances for children and their
families will set our minds free and boost our imagination. After the
daily theatre performances there will be ample opportunity to talk about
the performances during lunch or later at the coffee table, and then move
on to reflect on the themes in the plays in the Artistic Laboratory,
adapted to each performance by the Little Image School. Then there will
be a treasure hunt in the enchanting lounges at Sølyst with the
opportunity to join a tour of the secret nooks and crannies on the
estate, and then go for a run in the park. It will be an unforgettable
day of fun at Sølyst, enjoyed by the entire family.

All performances are in Danish, but especially the shows for the younger
audiences are so visually and sensory-oriented that the performances
guaranteed will be a great experience.

That Theatre Company presents God of Carnage by Yasmina RezaGodofcarnage

A viciously funny and biting comedy that takes place in the aftermath of a playground fight between two schoolboys. Their parents decide to “meet” to talk it out. What starts as a polite discussion soon degenrates into verbal warfare with all four adults revealing their own issues and true colours.

Winner of both the Tony and Laurence Olivier Award for “Best Play” – God of Carnage is a fastpaced comedic satire described as a “comedy of manners…without the manners.”

19th february – 22nd March 2014
Monday-Friday 8 pm, Saturday 5 pm.

Serridslevvej 2
2100 København Ø

Why Not Theatre presents WIT by Margaret Edson wit

Vivian Bearing, a professor in English renaissance literature, has been admitted to hospital, where she is being treated for advanced metastatic ovarian cancer. All her adult life she has hidden her real persona behind a crisp, academic mask. But now, as hospital doctors and personnel barge into her room at all times of day and night and refer to her in the third person as though she were just another statistic, Vivian finds it increasingly difficult to cope and come to terms with her new situation.

Pulitzer prize-winning WIT is a heartbreakingly funny, unsentimental and uplifting story about human relationships, values, forgiveness and empathy, seen in the light of a woman’s imminent death.

On stage: Sue Hansen-Styles, Andrew Jeffers, Bennet Thorpe, Miriam Yeager, Eira Pryce
Directed by: Peter Dupont Weiss
