Into the Core

Training Course

22-28 June 2023 | Statek Habří, Czech Republic

Into the Core is a 7-day training course on PlayFight methodology for youth workers that want to empower the young people to handle the challenges of today's world with confidence and resilience.


We will fully dive into the Playfight methodology as participants and reflect on how we can apply its principles and approach as facilitators, trainers or coaches.

We will be 27 people from 9 countries on a journey to become familiar with the PlayFight methodology and develop our own facilitation skills. All of this will be guided by an experienced team in a supportive and safe environment. 


Playful fighting - PlayFight is an innovative somatic methodology that uses elements of conscious work with the body and emotions and the art of honest communication. Main activities of PlayFight consists of:

  • mindful practice through movement, breathing, meditation, focus and reflex games
  • playfighting as a non-verbal physical activity
  • sharing circles - a safe space for personal verbal sharing and reflection
