Testimonials

 I enjoyed how you challenged us to think, feel and act in a playful way. It sounds so simple. Finally someone with a down-to-earth interpretation of science. Loved the games we played.

Congrats. The best seminar I ever attended. You provide not only knowledge of what to do with children but of what to do with ourselves as well. Deep teaching. 
Marco
Wow. Those tutorials are really cream on the top. Very helpful! Though, I needed some weeks to realize the value of theory as well. Playness time!
Jenny
Playness method made me realize that children have to have fun while being physically active in order to love doing it. You opened my eyes. I was falsely taught that activity should be more like a serious drill. 
Mustafa
You rock man. Playness compass and 5 flowers method are really unique and very practical. Being a sport coach Playness makes me reconsider some of my approaches.  
Alex
So easy. Following the 5 flower Playness methodology makes it so much easier for the teacher and allows more expression of child's creativity and curiosity. I became much better observer and can focus more on children with additional needs.
