Movingness – for an embodied life

Embodiment

What is Movingness? It’s a new method for movement and embodiment. You can teach it as a Movingness teacher. Or you can integrate it into your yoga or dance classes, your coaching, or your personal practice.

Interoception. The ability to sense and feel your body from within is the foundation of Movingness. This vital sense is also known as interoception.

Fascia work. Recent findings about fascia are revolutionizing our understanding of the body.

Let me show you in practice!

Here are some short examples from the five movement series. They are practiced slowly to create a deep connection with your body and make it possible to move from within. 

 

What exactly is Movingness?

Movingness is based on five series of natural movements and one series of anatomy explorations. The method combines slow and relaxing stretches with dynamic movements. Movingness often leads to deep states of flow or meditation, where your body and mind truly feels as one.

Earth Series

The Earth Series is the foundation. It awakens your interoception and takes you into states of deep flow and meditation.

Gecko Series

The Gecko Series teaches you how to include heavier movements (yang), without losing your relaxation (yin).

Dolphin Series

The Dolphin Series flows freely between different positions and planes. It’s playful and explores the ease of movement.

Tiger Series

The Tiger Series is about physical and emotional power. It also shows you how to transform them into an effortless dance.

Snow Goose Series

The Snow Goose Series is focused on standing movements. It’s about integration of movement, personal expression, and freedom

Helena Wirén-Westerlund, Finland

“It’s really important to find the slow, rolling movements of the pelvis and the spine and feel how you can move them by hardly doing anything else than breathing. I think we need to experience our deep, stabilizing muscles before we start to use our bigger muscle groups. Working from the inside out gives you a totally different experience and body awareness.”
