Maren Hillert Dip. IBMT, RSMT, Heilpraktikerin, Dance Teacher

Together with faculty member Frauke Burchard, and under the supervision of Linda Hartley, Maren built the Lithuanian and Russian IBMT trainings (2011-2018) with a lot of love and commitment. Her joy of practicing Contact Improvisation connected her deeply to the Russian CI dancers during the first Lithuanian IBMT training.

Her wish to spread the IBMT material and widen the possibility of healing & peace in the world, joined with the strong dedication of the Russian students to the IBMT material. This led to the first Moscow training in 2013 (dreamed by Nastya Saevich, Natalia .., Masha Grudskaya, Nina Kungova and Maren in the summer of 2012 in Vilnius.
