shifting perspectives: five seated + standing movements

Why we move

Just a few reasons...

We move to get things done. To build a house or keep up with others. We move to show our spirits. To dance, to play, to feel alive. We move to stay healthy. To exercise our bodies and minds with routines that sustain us. We move to get healthy. To create a shift or change in our bodies and minds with new movements that can challenge us. We move to heal.

What makes this trauma informed?

Choices, invitations, noticing, open-ended experiments. Read more about those here.


Integration offering

As you move through the practice or as you move through your week, I invite you to observe your movement. You might notice whether you recognize limitations or capacities. Or whether you notice difference or sameness.

Be moving, be true, be you
