Exercise & Body Work that Inspires you
to live your life in full
The quality of how we breathe and move throughout our whole day influences how we feel and the choices that we make
Impacting our overall health and wellbeing
What is Harmony In Movement?
Harmony In Movement starts with choosing a quality in your breathing and movements that allows a connection to the greatest and grandest You, the inner-most you that is strong, confident, vivacious and empowered with nothing to prove. When we exercise from this inner connection or quality, we will not compromise it to achieve any image or goal in our fitness training.
When we connect to ourselves and our body like this with exercise we have the opportunity to register whether our body is tired, tight or vital that day. Instead of pushing ourselves to keep up with a class or set program, we can work out in a way that matches exactly what our body needs and is telling us and feel exactly when we need a little extra support such as other changes in our life or some body work therapies.
Connection and Quality in Breath and Movement
Connecting is simple and natural. It starts with breathing gently, then allowing our whole body to become gentle. We then move from this quality, bringing the connection and quality into our movements. See our blog 'What is connection?' for more on this.
Choosing Connection and a quality in our breath and movements results in an openness and expansiveness in our body and our connective tissue system. This brings a settlement and ease to our body, supporting the release of any tension, holding, anxiousness or raciness in the body during both exercise and massage.
When we are not aware of the quality of our breath and movements (because we are too focused on 'what' we are doing instead of 'how' we are doing it) there is a disconnection and disregard for our body in the way we are breathing and moving. The result is tension, rigidity and stiffness in our connective tissue and this is when strain or injury can occur. Exercising or even receiving a massage in such a state will leave our body feeling heavy, tired, drained or even exhausted, stiff, tight and painful.
Exercising and receiving massage with a quality of connection feels fantastic in the body. It is achievable, enjoyable and deeply empowering, because we are saying that our bodies and the grandest part of ourselves are worth listening to.
The overall result is higher energy levels, improved confidence and feelings of worth and wellbeing.
