OUT*side Program

OUT*side is a project by and for trans* inter* and non-binary folks. It offers free exercise programs in parks and gyms in Berlin-Friedrichshain/ Kreuzberg as well as online. The focus of the project is to increase health and well-being of the participants. It is also about creating spaces for empowerment together.
Our activities are free of charge and membership is not required.

From NOVEMBER-DECEMBER we are live (OUTDOOR/INDOOR) in Berlin with different offers:

Special feature: your cis friends are invited to come along as your +1 to the hiking trip and Eis Skating evenings

 

Covid Time
We have decided to offer online sport trainings for trans*, inter* and nonbinary people as part of the OUT*side project. We know that they can be strongly affected by the current "shutdown" and especially by health impairments and consequences. For this purpose, we have the OUT*side project. Because especially in this time we think it is important to pay attention to each other and try to provide a safer space. Now you don´t have to be in Berlin to joy us! :-P

Until June 2021, great online offerings have taken place so that we could fight Covid: Hatha Yoga Flow with Ivo, Yang-style taijiquan (Tai-Chi) with Makisig Akin, Feldenkreis with Moritz, Meditation with Rhama. A very special and unique offer in Europe was "Back health for people who (have) worn binders" with Joon. As we find this offer especially important we have decided to offer it at Seitenwechsel in the regular training (online)! The new name for the same offer is now "Back*Health". Click here for all info.

 

All our trainers are trans*inter* and/or non-binary. We are always looking for new trainers (professionals or amateurs) who would like to develop new offers with us. If you are interested, contact us at outside(at)seitenwechsel-berlin.de

OUT*side is now also on Instagram and Facebook There you can get to know our team and the trainers and find the latest information. Like and follow to us!

The trainings are open for all levelsIn this workshop we will learn the basic techniques of skating, e.g. choosing and putting on skates, finding balance, first steps, falling, braking, cornering, running backwards and riding with the non-preferred foot. But above all, we learn to laugh at ourselves because we need to learn that more than anything else when skating. All levels of skaters are welcome to have fun with us on the ice.

On 18 December we would like to celebrate the last OUT*side date of the year again with cookies and (non-alcoholic) Glühwein on the ice!

Coach: Alvina (she/her). I am a performance artist, writer, teacher, and trans woman. I am from Sweden and USA but I live in Berlin since 2015. I have also trained skating, figure skating and can teach many basic skills. I feel that it is important that we can move, teach, learn and hang out TIN*-people together. I look forward to seeing and meeting you all in December on the ice! See you then! See more about Alvina...

Attention! Admission and shoe rental are NOT included in the offer. Admission costs 3,30 €.
