What is Movingness?

Movingness is a groundbreaking new somatic movement method. It’s an amazing inner journey where you can learn to know your body and mind from deep within. 

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 move and 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 systemaize it and share it with the world.

For whom is it?

You can enjoy Movingness in almost all shapes, conditions, and ages. Most movement practices are about imitating the teacher, but in Movingness it’s about finding a way of moving that feels natural for you. There’s no competition in Movingness. There’s no right or wrong. The only right way to move in Movingness is what works for you. 

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. Now it’s time to reconnect, heal, and come together again!

Finnish happiness

Movingness is created in Finland, the happiest country in the world (UN 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024). 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.”
