About us

Our vision

Our civilization has brought us many wonderful things, but we have paid a high price for our success. Gradually, we’ve lost the connection with our bodies, with each other, and with nature. Let’s reconnect and set humanity back in motion!

About Peter and Movingness

Peter Appel, founder of Movingness

Peter’s story

For more than 20 years, Peter Appel studied yoga, ecstatic dance, dance therapy, Feldenkrais, and meditation. But then something happened: Suddenly, his body showed him how it wanted to be moved!

The story of Movingness

The story of Movingness

Movingness was born from spontaneous movements Peter experienced during sleep and waking up. Since they felt so good, he decided to systematize them into what is now known as Movingness.
