Catia and emka*

We, the artists Catia and emka*, teach yoga and contact improvisation dance since 8 years. We enjoy practicing consensual relations to humans and nature alike. And of course we cuddle. We organized conscious cuddle parties in Bali, Indonesia and various events in Aotearoa and love bringing people into beautiful connections.

Workshops

The Conscious Cuddle Poodle is aiming for a safe space to explore cuddling, human connection and the beauty of the healing power of non-sexual human touch. The workshop introduces verbal and nonverbal communication to tune into ourselves and others. We teach how to approach and invite others safely for cuddles and how to make your intentions and boundaries clear. And we cuddle.(We have two workshops, one ideally at the beginning of the festival for people to get to know each other through this cuddle and the second one at the end of the festival. The second one is to celebrate all the connections made or not yet made on the festival through cuddles. Both open for anyone)

This event celebrates the connections we have made or not yet made trough inviting people to cuddles. As in the other cuddle session, we learn how to approach and invite others safely for cuddles and how to make our intentions and boundaries clear.We celebrate ourselves through non-sexual touch and connect to bring cuddles more into our life outside the festival.
