OUT*side Program

 

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!

As part of our project, OUT*side – movement and sport for trans*, inter*, non-binary folks and women* friends, we worked together with partners TriQ, Gladt e.V. and Sonntags-Club to organize a range of free health-related activities and workshops on empowerment through movement at locations throughout Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg in 2017. This project is sponsored by the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg's planning and coordination department for health.

Training sessions are open to people of all levels of fitness, free of charge and not bound to a club. As of September 2018, all of our coaches are trans*, inter* and/or non-binary.

Current program 2020 - Berlin-Outdoor:

That was our summer programme 2020:

Here our programme 2020 - ONLINE- LIVE Training (April to June 2020):

CoronaVirus 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

HIKING WITH NORA

(for trans*, inter*, and non-binary folks an women*friends)

Date: 11 October 2020
Meeting point: Gesundbrunnen station, platform 9 (in front in the direction of travel) at approx. 9.20 h
Departure: 9.39 h with the regional train RE3 (direction Schwedt) to Chorin

 

Between Chorin and Liepe: the Plagefenn

 

A good hundred years ago, the moorland area called Plagefenn became the first nature reserve in northern Germany. Our hike leads through this wooded area. Although the moors have suffered greatly during the last two dry and hot summers due to the lack of water, what remains is a beautiful mixed forest with an old stock of trees.
The hike begins and ends in Chorin. The view first goes to a monument of the North German brick Gothic style: the Chorin monastery complex. We hike through the forest to Liepe, which lies on the edge of the Oderbruch. Then we take the path via the Lieper Forsthaus back to Chorin.

 

Route length: approx. 20 km

 

Ticket information: In order to keep travel costs as low as possible, it is advisable to buy a Brandenburg ticket. Please indicate on your registration form whether you are interested in the Brandenburg-Ticket.

Coacher: Nora (66), Transwoman, board member of TransInterQueer e.V. For more than 10 years I have been travelling in Brandenburg and have got to know fascinating landscapes through my numerous hikes. I would like to pass on my rich knowledge and experience within the framework of a hiking group. I would like my fascination to be contagious. See more about Nora...

On four evenings, we will climb at different outdoor bouldering walls in Berlin. Instead of a rope and harness, we'll climb in a safe jumping height with boulder mats (crashpads) underneath! We'll warm up together and go through a few basic climbing techniques and safety points. Then you are free to try different "problems" – from simple to tricky. Bouldering strengthens many different muscle groups, and helps increase your overall strength, endurance and concentration skills. Movements can be slow and steady or quick and dynamic. You decide what level and type of climbing is the best fit for you. You'll need to bring comfortable clothing, a water bottle and athletic or climbing shoes. The event will be canceled in case of heavy rain. 

Coach: Finn Rebelle, our Bouldern coach is 31 genderqueer, passionate climbing trainer & fitness coach, founder of Out*side cooperation partner Queerclimb

Meditation with Sarra

(for trans*, inter*, and non-binary folks)

Wednesdays
Time: 6:30 pm - 8 pm
Language: English 

Especially now in times of uncertainties, more than ever we need to be able to find the connection to our true home inside of ourselves to ground and nourish ourselves and find the necessary stability to face our daily challenges, inside and outside of ourselves.
Meditation and mindfulness practice can help us to build this beautiful home inside of us where we can find refuge. We will work with our breathing, our bodies and minds and get to explore different topics around joy, suffering and resilience together. This space is suitable for any level of experience. No prior experience is required, only curiosity and openness :)

Coach: Sarra Bouars (they/them) Tunisian-German with ancestral roots in sufism. My spiritual journey started with Hatha Yoga and Vipassana Meditation in 2009. I’ve been practicing ever since and have been exposed to many different meditation styles and practices. My spiritual home I found in the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh in the Plumvillage Tradition, which is an engaged buddhism rooted in mindfulness and the understanding of interbeing.
