come play with us

 With the ever increasing pressures and stress of today, we often forget to play. 
Join us in an intimate setting in tropical Sumbawa Indonesia, immersing 
yourself in a week long journey of ‘learning through play’. 
Move, dance, learn new skills, rejuvenate and get inspired. 
Learning how to integrate more playfulness back into your life 
to live healthier and happier.


the Journey

Come play with us in beautiful Sumbawa.
Where a beautiful coconut plantation greets the sunrise from the Indian ocean,
this will be our PlayQuarters for the week.  

Let’s bring fun and play to the serious, and have some serious fun! 

You will be safely guided through a series of workshops, exploring and playing with various movement practices and techniques – including flow arts and circus, acro balance, theatre games and dance. Through these practices you will learn tools to discover the freedom to explore and express yourself playfully and creatively, inviting and integrating more playfulness into your life. 

 When our mind and body is in balance – we can allow ourselves to move our bodies freely. We can clear our thoughts from negativity. We release tensions and blockages which frees the mind and heart from judgement…and we get a chance to discover and truly be exactly who we want to be. 

This is freedom!

We are The Fiery Pixies – Shaheen and Shouniez (husband & wife), two playful pixies from South Africa. Flow artists and movers at heart, we are passionate about “learning through play.” 

 One day, the confines of the city got too much for these pixies and we needed to fly free. The calling to integrate more “Play” into our lives grew increasingly strong. We sold everything we owned to answer this calling…to play more, to travel, to explore, to learn and to grow. We wanted to explore our creativity, share our art, and make a positive impact in the world. 

We have been travelling the globe since 2013, performing and teaching throughout 14 countries, sharing our passion for playing, through circus, movement and flow. During our travels, we grew as artists, collaborating and learning from many talented professionals and passionate teachers. We deepened our movement practice, exploring theatre, story telling, acro balance, contemporary dance, circus and clowning. Integrating these practices into our daily lives has brought us so much joy.

Benefits of play

Playing keeps you feeling young and energetic. It is keeps you looking young. Play can boost your energy and vitality and even improve your resistance to disease, helping you function at your best.

Play can release endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well being and even temporarily relive pain.

Continuing to learn new skills we continue to grow and improve the brain, just like exercising our body we need to exercise our brain. Play stimulates the brain to make new connections and new neurological path ways. Play helps the brain develop in the frontal lobe which is the center for planning and making good decisions. 

Studies have shown that people who are encouraged to use their imagination are more creative in their life. Creativity isn’t limited to the arts. Creativity also helps people find new and innovative ways to problem-solve, do things and invent new products that make our lives more productive, easier or more entertaining. It’s the ability to “make believe” that can take people’s minds to places where no one has gone before. 
Developing a playful nature can help you loosen up in stressful situations, break the ice with strangers, make new friends and form new business relationships. Laughter and fun can foster empathy, compassion, trust, and intimacy
Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work, it depends on the quality of your work and the quality of your work is highly dependant on your well-being. Taking time to replenish yourself through play is one of the best ways you can help your career and make your work more productive and pleasurable.
