What is Movingness?

Movingness is an amazing journey into yourself. During this journey, you’ll connect with your body and learn to know yourself from deep within. The practice works on multiple levels: You can use it to refine your movement patterns, improve your body image, and learn how to freely express your feelings through your body. It can also bring you into natural states of flow and meditation.

Peter Appel, founder of Movingness

Peter’s story

For more than 20 years, Peter Appel studied yoga, 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 during sleep and early mornings. The impact on Peter’s well-being was so immense that he decided to share it with the world.

Movingness vision


For a long time, we have separated body and mind, human and human, and human and nature. As a result, we’ve created enormous suffering in our world. But now it’s time to reconnect, heal, and come together.

Finnish happiness

Movingness is created in Finland, the happiest country in the world (UN 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021). So what is Finnish happiness? In short, it looks for balance. As the old Finnish saying goes: “Happiness is somewhere between too little and too much.”
