You have top surgery coming up and want to prepare your body as best as possible?
Moving the body on a regular basis is a good support for this because it stimulates blood circulation und helps the body to heal more easily afterwards. As this is often easier in a group than alone at home, we are offering this class.
We’ll do specific exercises that support mobility of the chest, strengthen your muscles and enhance your overall fitness. The exercises are designed in a way that you can repeat them as part of your own movement routine at home. There will also be time to chat, ask questions and get to know each other.
The class takes place from December 13th to mid March. You can participate on a single date or every week. The exercises will help your body prepare, regardless of how close or far in the future your top surgery is.
Open to every body, physical fitness is not required.
COACH: Noah (he/him) is aspiring sports therapist (B.A. sports therapy and prevention) and acquiring a licence for training adults in different sports. I am preparing for my own top surgery at the moment. Doing only a few specific exercises regularly and talking to others about top surgery has had a big impact on my body and mental health. I would like to share a variety of exercises with you and create a space for preparation and exchange in community. This class will be based on my knowledge from health focused fitness classes, sports therapy studies and practical trainings. More about Noah...
Date: 10 December 2023
Meeting point: Gesundbrunnen railway station

Hike from Chorin to Brodowin
The last hike of the year will once again take us to the eco-village of Brodowin. We will first walk along forest and field paths along the Nettelgraben, past the White Lake to the farm shop in Brodowin, where we will spend our big break. The farm shop offers hot food and drinks, as well as everything else you would find in an organic food shop. The large, cosy dining room allows us to spend our break in the warmth. We then return to Chorin railway station via the Denglerweg and Chorin Monastery.
Route length approx. 16 km
For the outward and return journey we offer the use of the Brandenburg-Ticket.
Bring a dog is possible.
Remarks: For all those who are thinking about participating for the first time, but are not sure whether the offer is suitable for them: please contact us in this regard via a note in the registration form. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have or provide you with more information about the schedule.
There is also the possibility to meet with one of us a little earlier, directly before the hike.
On the hike itself, we have a buddy program: participants who have been on the hike many times before will be there if needed to help you get settled into the group.
We welcome participation from anyone on the TIN spectrum, no matter where they are on it!
Coacher: Nora (68), 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...
Important info for TIN folk to hike!
For our walks in Brandenburg, longer S-Bahn journeys or journeys on regional trains are required. The meeting points are - as far as possible - within the city (Gesundbrunnen or Ostkreuz) to give you the easiest and safest access possible. The subsequent rides will then take place under the protection of the group, where you can always feel in good hands. If you have any questions or needs for a safe arrival and departure, please let us know.
We try to keep travel costs associated with our walks as low as possible. Wherever possible, we offer the use of the Brandenburg-Ticket. If the travel costs still prevent you from taking part in the hikes, we are happy to find individual solutions. Please inform us of your needs when you register.

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.
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...

These lessons teach a better perception of everyday movement patterns and enable you to learn movement alternatives. Feldenkrais is appropriate for everyone, even if you have pain or limitations. No previous knowledge necessary.

Trainer: Moritz G. Sander "Some people know me in the queer Berlin scene from other contexts, for example as a moderator or drag king. I completed my training as a Feldenkrais teacher in 2018 and I am happy to be able to make this offer to the FINT Community now through the OUTside Project". See more about Moritz...
