Join Couchsurfing to see Nina’s full profile.
**Currently cannot host, sorry! Will be back **
Hi, my name is Nina, I am usually quite adventurous, physical and loving to moneky around in nature.
Changing places, travelling and writing about it is something that makes me a happy one.
But staying in one place, taking care of the earth and the plants around makes me even happier.
I am a movement teacher, studying physiotherapy.
Dance and music are my way of letting go. Doing permaculture is my way of reminding myself to be humble.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I guess I used to be a bit on the hippie side when I created the profile.
Now as I am growing up (never fully) I am still on the hippie side :)
I am into dance, partnering, capoeira and other forms of movement. Was into Ido Portal's idea of movement culture for a long time. I like to try new physical activities and love to jam, dance, improvise.
- performing arts
- contact improvisation
- ido portal
- making music
- drum and bass
- natural movement
Music, Movies, and Books
I am mostly into dub, sometimes drum and bass, sometimes classical music, sometimes just acoustic guitar.
Deep bass plus some more sophisticated instrumentals usually do the job :)
I also like "spiritual music". I am learning to play guitar and sing.
I've red many touching books. My favourite authors are Fiodor Dostojewski, Orson Scott Card, Philip K. Dick, Leonard Cohen, Stanisław Lem, José Saramago.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hard to pick. Simple life is amazing.
Once while sailing near the Gulf Islands, Canada, BC, a friend woke me up in the middle of the night. She showed me one of the most amazing, magical thing I've ever seen. The whole ocean was glowing - water was full of an extraordinary kind of algae and green light emanated from every single corpuscle of it. Swimming in it was quite a mindblowing experience, because the sea looked as starlit as the sky - there was no border between them...
Teach, Learn, Share
I can show you some capoeira/contact impro/movement things or simply try to answer questions regarding some body issues.
I also did some permaculture, woodwork and helped with bioconstruction, so maybe I could help you with something if you need it.
If you are eg. a dancer, capoerista, contact impro person, yogi, artist, filmmaker (or other type of creative soul) and we can exchange some skills or ideas I thing we will get along :)
