To live is to be in movement, whether it is simply getting from A to B or learning special skills such as using a keyboard, playing an instrument, singing or dancing.
Knowledge about certain principles of human functioning helps us to avoid problems before they occur (prevention), have more energy by using less energy wastefully and achieve optimum ease of movement.
Intelligent Movement is understanding and using more consciously
the connections between mind and body.
Mindfulness is a word often used to describe living in the moment - but what does this really mean?
The brain, quick to adapt, develops well-worn neural pathways; once we have learnt to do something.
We can waste a lot of energy in our everyday lives by holding tension in our bodies, thinking unnecessary thoughts.
When we begin to act more mindfully, less habitually, we become more aware of choice.
What happens in a lesson? You will explore with your teacher your current patterns of movement.
