People are encouraged and supported to explore, discover and interpret inside and outside while moving in space. An Uggi workshop is a creative outlet for people to connect to their bodies and imaginations. To experience enjoyment, movement, freedom, increased physical awareness, flexibility and overall feelings of wellbeing. Wear comfortable clothes, socks or barefoot.
