My body came alive, it was no longer something I had to force according to my mind. It became something that I could harmoniously live with.

I have a job with lots of repetitive movements. This is such a good way to relax tight muscles and open up the body again after a long workday.

Living an embodied life 

Living an embodied life is more than just moving. It’s about reconnecting with yourself – with your body, your community, and nature. When you find home in your body, you also reconnect with your basic emotions. You don’t have to figure everything out with your brain – you can feel it from within!

I’ve found that movement can be pleasurable. And that you can benefit from the pleasure in it. It doesn't have to be pain and gain. It can also be pleasure and gain.

6 ways Movingness is different

How Movingness stands out – and fits in!

1.

Movingness is a new somatic method for body and mind integration (also known as embodiment).

2.

The first series in Movingness creates a deep connection with the body. Later series are focused on natural movements.

3.

All series are practiced slowly in a state of deep relaxation. This makes it possible to renew the body’s movement patterns.

4.

The movements are both calming and stimulating for the nervous system. This often leads to an experience of relaxation in the body and clarity in the mind.

5.

The softness and gradual learning curve make Movingness very flexible. It can be adapted to people of all ages in a wide variety of physical conditions.

6.

You can practice Movingness to increase your wellbeing, improve your body awareness, or refine your movement patterns. Or as a moving meditation.
