How to Stay Youthful, Fresh and Vibrant at any Age!

Movement when done with awareness keeps us youthful, vibrant, refreshed and inspired!

When done with somatic awareness we encourage our brain to work through movement patterns that regain dexterity, coordination and ease within our musculoskeletal system.

With curiosity and an openness to learn we encourage the mind to think differently, explore new movement pathways, and to therefore create new neural connections that refresh our brain and body.

We have the choice to stay youthful and we can do this through our conscious awareness of how we think and how we move- it is that simple!

THE IMPORTANCE OF CURIOSITY

As children our intrigue keeps us moving, exploring and problem solving our environment. We go through a series of development movement patterns that encourage our cognitive growth, neuromuscular development and our mental-emotional resilience.

To miss out on certain movement patterns is to limit our capacity and ability to meet our potential.

As adults we become accustomed to moving and living repeated pattens. In doing so we reduce our neural pathways of engagement, we reinforce certain patterns and lose others, our dexterity and adaptability reduces and our cognitive agility can suffer.

But thankfully, the neuroplastic nature of our brains enables us to renew, relearn and recover these patterns of body-mind dexterity, through mindful engagement of the body in conscious movement exploration that stimulates learning and reforming of neural pathways.

We are never to old to learn, it is only the scope of our mind that sets the limits of our expectation.

Through Somatic Movement programs we stimulate reconnection between the brain and body, re-educate the body to greater ease and fluidity, refreshes and reset our nervous system, boost cognitive functioning and recall, and expands our creativity and problem solving ability.


To move differently is to think differently!
