NUTRITIOUS MOVEMENT

MOVEMENT NUTRIENTS FOR YOUR BODY

WOULD YOU LIKE TO..

-Learn how you can slow down or prevent common "age-related" ailments by becoming a more conscious daily mover?

-Find out if re-occurring tensions or aches are the result of ways in which you use your body on a daily basis?

- Learn about how increasing your interroception, your internal sensory awareness, might affect your mental and emotional state of mind?

- Learn about how changing the way you sit, stand and walk can affect chronic tension in the shoulders, arms and neck?

- Develop a biomechanical sense of movement which you can apply to whatever type of training or workout you are doing in order to better avoid strain injuries?

- Become more aware of your individual posture and how the way you carry yourself affects the tension pattern in your muscles as well as your metabolism, blood pressure and digestion?

WHAT IS NUTRITIOUS MOVEMENT?

 Nutritious Movement™ is a whole-body movement program developed by the american biomechanist Katy Bowman. In this program the general term "movement" is put into a broader perspective.

The body is to a large degree self-regulating: an optimal use will bring optimal health. However, in order to be self-regulating the body has certain mechanical requirements: it needs to be used according to how it was designed. 

Just like your body needs a big variety of dietary nutrients in order to stay healthy (vitamins, minerals and trace elements) it also needs its movement-nutrientsas in a varied and differentiated use of the whole body on a macro- and micro level.  

"You are how you move" so how about learning how to move in a way that restores, rather than strains the body, and maybe getting some insights into how your daily way of moving might contribute in re-occurring health issues or, alternatively, might help to alleviate them.

Nutritious Movement™ is developed by biomechanist Katy Bowman, founder of Nutritious Movement in Ventura, USA.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A NUTRITIOUS MOVEMENT SESSION?

Typical things to work with in a NM lesson:

  • Alignment – the weight distribution in the body during sitting, standing and walking and how to use body in a more optimal way during these activities.
  • Exercises in order to activate deeper layers of the body and increasing overal mobility and sensory awareness.
  • Exercises specifically designed to relieve and prevent painful cramps during menstruation
  • Increased awareness and knowledge concerning movement patterns which strain the body and which might accumulate into chronic tension and strain injuries.
  • Exercises for increased circulation.
  • Exercises for increased mobility of the spine, pelvis and shoulders.
  • Biomechanical analysis of current alignment and movement patterns which might be a contributing factor for re-occurring tensions and pain.
