Embodied Movement for Well-being
Release deep joint and muscular tension through guided and exploratory gentle movements. Experience the pleasure of moving with an ease and awareness that decreases stress and promotes a sense of well-being.
Embodied movement is a safe and grounded approach to movement. It combines a basic understanding of the muscular-skeletal system with the sensory feedback received from moving.

- Access inner vitality and inner support
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Find freedom and ease of movement
- Cultivate a positive perception of your body and health
and much more
How does it work?
- Embodied movement is based on the idea that:
- When we move, we feel what it is like to move from the inside out. This provides a focus for mindful movement and a way to be in the ‘here and now’
- Having a ‘felt sense’ or ‘first-hand experience of being in our body’ gives feedback for what we need to regain a sense of well-being and being centred
- An embodied and integrated sense of oneself can offer clarity in our life choices
- The slow speed of the movement allows deep tension to release
What can I expect?
- Within guided parameters each individual is asked to monitor and adapt their own movements to within a safe and comfortable range for them
- An introduction to the muscular-skeletal system as a basic for focused movement
- Guided exercises, movement explorations focused on how we use our skeleton to lever us in space and the joints that shape our movements
