Our story

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

A taste of Finnish happiness

Movingness is created in Finland, the happiest country in the world (UN 2018, 2019, 2020). 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.”
