Sebastian Bergne (GB) + Franziska Kessler (CH)


July 30th – August 5th 2017

The Workshop

The importance of balance in all aspects of art and design cannot be overstated. And in life at large, balance is fundamental for a healthy existence. We don’t always have control of what goes on around us, but we can try to control our inner life and balance the trouble outside.

This one week project with design and yoga expert Franziska Kessler and designer Sebastian Bergne explores the meaning and relationship between balance in mind, body and object. Activities in each area will address issues of balance, and participants will have the opportunity to transfer their experiences from one area to another. It will be an exciting and holistic journey to discover how balance can be achieved.

The workshop introduces and practices methods of Kundalini Yoga. It is suitable for beginners and more experienced practitioners alike.

Franziska Kessler Switzerland

Franziska Kessler’s professional history in the area of design is manifold.
