2 Day Focus on Girls/Women Workshop
Focus on GIRLS/WOMEN - Inner strength and attitude, communication and solidarity
The 2 day Rock and Water training program Focus on Girls/Women, developed by Linda Geraeds and Freerk Ykema, uses the basic skills and concepts of the Rock & Water program, while paying special attention to the developmental challenges and qualities of girls and women. Participants will learn to work with the different Rock & Water principles to build on their communication skills to live with others and the world around them without losing their own individuality and personal path in life. This training supports girls and women in their journey to becoming powerful individuals.
The main goals of the program are:
- To increase body awareness
- To become aware of attitudes, emotions and reaction patterns
- To experience body strength
- To increase self-confidence and learn to rely on your own strength
- To experience your power and to learn how to translate inner feelings into action
- To use mental power related to inner strength
- To feel, set and defend boundaries
- To deal with exciting situations without losing your inner strength
Aside from important theoretical backgrounds, different methods of approach will be taught and practiced. The training is centred around three themes: ground your body, centre your power and focus your mind.
Working with these themes teaches girls and women to connect with their body, inner feelings and strength, and from there connect with the environment.
The Rock aspect enables girls and women to believe in their own strength and to increase their self-confidence. The Water aspect provides the tools to translate this new-found strength into communication with others.
Focus on Girls/Women consists of a 10-lessons program:
LESSON 1 Stand strong and stay strong
LESSON 2 Generating force from your basic

The training program is tailored for teachers, trainers/coaches, therapists and Rock & Water trainers, who want to support girls and women to re-connect with their inner strength.
