Helping young and old, sporty and steady
“What I’m after isn’t flexible bodies, but flexible brains.”
Our classes can be enjoyed by all sorts of people.
Anybody can come to improve the movement niggles that can affect us all:
do day to day activities more effortlessly
melt away muscle tension, feel free and weightless
move with pleasure even as you recover from pain or injury
de-stress and feel grounded
gain confidence in moving fluently and nourishing yourself with movement
Elite performers and movers
Elite performers and movers can fine-tune their expertise:
singers, dancers, actors and musicians can take care of their instruments (themselves) as they refine their awareness
martial artists can feel free and light in action: a zero gravity sensation comes as your skeletal structure is better organised
sports and active people can tune into their own bodily wisdom to prevent injuries, lose unhelpful movement habits and make incremental gains
all can use familiar tools like visualisation and being in ‘flow’
I run regular events for local charities to introduce new people to the delights of mind-body practices. In May 2019 I organised a mind and body wellbeing afternoon, with funds to mental health charity, York Mind.
People had mostly not been to Awareness Through Movement before. They were looking for relaxation, awareness and calm; some faced stress, pain or injury. The words show how they found the class. Click the button if you want to hear about future charity events.
I also took part in a mass celebration of World Meditation Day by leading an ‘Awareness Through Movement’ session in York’s Museum Gardens.
