Mindful Movement Courses

Moving Meditation Courses promote relaxation, reduce tension & increase self- confidence

Mindful Movement is an opportunity to promote relaxation, reduce tension and increase self- confidence.  Rather than continue living with stress, discomfort and anxiety, why not make some positive changes?

Awareness of the breath, body and factors that contribute to tension will: improve your health and well- being; increase your creativity and productivity and; deepen your relationship with yourself, others and the world around you.  Specifically, techniques are adapted from Aikido, meditation and life coaching practices.

Description of the Intermediate’s Course

Would you like to feel more fulfilled in your life?

Could you benefit from tools that allow you to become clearer about a fulfilling life direction?

Do you want strategies that empower you to remain on that path of fulfillment with confidence and clarity?

This is a practical and experiential course in which we deepen your confidence, awareness, relaxation and embodiment and build on the foundations you laid in the Beginners’ Course.

Please note that only people who have attended the Beginner’s Mindful Movement workshop are eligible to attend this course.

Course Content:

We will cover six elements that are essential for personal growth and life fulfillment, meaning and purpose.  Learn to embody these elements through archetypes, bring them alive during the course and learn to use them in our daily lives.

We will embody purpose through the Sovereign.  By taking control of our life direction and learning to navigate by this North Star, we can therefore direct our whole life towards living in integrity and fulfillment.

We will explore connection with ourself, others and the world around us.  Through the Lover we will embody presence, curiosity, an open heart and a love of life.  Consequently we will feel empowered us to deepen our relationships with the world at large and manage our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being.

We will meet the Magician, the source of our Intuition, Instinct and Insight.  Through deep relaxation, we can silence the chatter that occupies our minds almost constantly.  We will also begin to connect to a deeper wisdom and profound knowing.

Personal growth requires change and transformation.  Therefore, this requires a particular energy to take action and do and be differently in the world.  We will be introduced to our Rebel, the source of our strength and perseverance to step out of our comfort zone.

We cannot live on work alone.  Play, joy and adventure are also essential aspects of our lives.  When we dance with the Jester, we dance with life and the people we share it with.

Truth, integrity and purpose are qualities of the just Warrior.  With focus, commitment and perseverance, Warrior protects the values that allow us to live in line with what is most important to us.

Together, these archetypes are a powerful team that can support and inspire us to live the life we want to live.  On this course, we will get to know a team that lives inside us that will bring us to fulfillment.  By investing this time, we will set ourselves on that path.

One- off workshops are also available.  You can contact David here if you would like to discuss arranging a corporate or local event.

It doesn’t matter how fit you are because you can set your own pace. There are no moves to remember or complex sequences to learn. There is simply the time and space to relax, reconnect with yourself and discover some strategies to carry this sense of confidence & relaxation with you always.

These will include:

  • Breathing exercises- we rarely take a full, deep calm breath in this hectic and busy world. Tension in the body and focusing attention on the external world means that we do not breath with ease.  Therefore we lose the benefit of power, relaxation, presence and confidence that comes with full breath.
  • Awareness exercises- are you aware of how you respond to situations in your life? Do you notice the affect you have on the people around you at work and in your private life? Also, do you consider the impact this has on your health and well- being? Becoming more mindful of these things means you may have greater positive impact on your personal and professional relationships than you realise.  Consequently, this will improve your confidence and well- being.
  • Movement exercises- we do not think about the way we move.  As a result, this impacts the way we interact with people, as first and foremost we communicate with our body. How do you communicate non- verbally? What impact does that have on others? How is your body language affecting you and your mindset? Therefore, becoming more aware of the way you stand, move and hold yourself is essential for greater confidence, relaxation and presence.

Managing stress and tension

Furthermore, these exercises create an opportunity for you to gain greater awareness of your potential and power.  So you have the tools to manage stress and tension in your daily life. It is as simple as taking some time to connect to your breath and body.  As a result, feel your innate power, confidence and presence. I think you deserve that.

We understand that exercise is a really important part of our health and well-being. We find ourselves living an increasingly sedentary lifestyle.  Therefore building movement and exercise into our everyday life is essential. We understand the significance of managing stress.  The health benefits of relaxation are significant.  As is the chance to “unplug” from the near constant pressure of modern living . As a result meditation and mindfulness are buzz- words and solutions people are gravitating towards.  Yoga, tai chi and other forms of relaxation, mindfulness and awareness practice are common.

Mindful Movement is a combination of all these practices.  Hence, it incorporates motion and exercise with awareness, mindfulness and relaxation.  These courses create that space in your life that allows you to “unplug” whenever you need to.  Live life with more presence, confidence and joy.

What people are saying about Mindful Movement

The centring and breathing exercises I found really relaxed me.  They’re also things I can take away from the session and practice in everyday life. NC

Learning the calming breathing exercises emphasise I have a choice how I react to people and situations.  Teaching methods were great-calm, serious, fun and informative. CG

The whole course was outstanding.  It was helpful with clear , new tools to learn how to relax.  Thank you David for a terrific course.  Most appreciated.  ML

It was great to understand how my body behaves and relaxes and the consequences of that.  NP

I enjoyed moving from mind into “being in my body”.  It made me realise how challenging it is.  Aligning movement with breathing helped me consider that there may be a different way to respond to things.  JB
