A lesson in Movingness always starts with relaxation so that you have a good contact with your body before you start moving. Then the movement can come from within. The slow movements and deep breathing in Movingness often lead to deep relaxation, sometimes to an experience of flow or meditation. When you are relaxed, your mind is open and your nervous system can learn new patterns of movement, while at the same time feeling calm and content to perform them.

When you are present in the body, or in other words, online with yourself, a communication between body and mind occurs. A feeling of being rooted in yourself. A sense of security. You could say that you strengthen your ability to be in your parasympathetic system. It’s something I think we need a lot today when too many people are too often in their stress system. When you open the connector to your body something strange happens. Your mind is awakened. The body stimulates the mind and the mind stimulates the body. They enjoy each other!

Awaken rest. Relaxation and clarity.
Welcome to a nice morning with Movingness!
