MOVEMENT NUTRIENTS FOR YOUR BODY

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-nutrients, as 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?
In my practice I make use of theory and knowledge from both Timani and NM. Every lesson starts with a conversation about your unique physical situation and your wishes and intentions with booking a NM lesson. Every lesson is unique based on the situation and wishes of the individual client.
First lesson lasts 90 min and costs NOK 780,-
A regular lesson lasts 60 min and costs NOK 630,- (student 560,- )
I teach at my home studio at Holmlia, about 25 min outside of the centre of Oslo. Accessible by bus, train or car.
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.
