Our day to day life is stressful. We are constantly multi-tasking, over-working and putting our wellbeing at the bottom of the priority list. Our Mind and Body are connected and constantly affect each other.
Mind Body Studies directly addresses the link between the two, so that with specifically designed movement combinations we re-program and re-organize our brain and neurological functions. This leads to new self-image, internal state management and techniques for releasing stress, to develop a language of communication between brain and behaviour, empowering each one to make the most of their inherent potential to be well in body and mind.
Mind Body Studies builds on science, philosophy and psychology, to enable you to find ways to use more of yourself. Using patterns of movement designed to develop awareness in thought and action, you will find ways to connect and apply all of your inherent abilities in a greater range and variety and to locate the unwanted physical behaviors, to avoid them and get yourself back to the wanted center.
These movement-patterns provide an opportunity to re-examine our good and bad habitual ways of acting and to allow you to choose the best way to apply yourself in all your activities.
In building self-knowledge within your system, and in creating a language of communication within yourself, you create cohesiveness in your network of thoughts, nerves and muscles that can lead to stress relief and improve your quality of life.
As you explore your movements with awareness, you discover how you think of yourself and how you orient yourself to the environment. This re-education of yourself internally and externally increases your ability to move with ease, to handle stress and to enjoy life on every level.
The approach of Mind Body Studies addresses patterns of physical and thought-stimulated organization. Systemic long-term habits are re-visited and re-set for greater flexibility, ease and well-being.
Great for Seniors
Seniors, with life experience bringing appreciation to what is important, and for the significance of quality over quantity, are ideally suited to benefit from this work.
MBS is most effective when you work at your own speed, paying attention to your personal and unique abilities and to your own internal feedback. In contrast to regular exercises, you are not required to compare yourself to others and are not set prescribed goals for distance or height.
Rather, these ‘lessons’ teach you how to think of how you operate and the interesting challenge is to discover your own best ways. You discover how to apply what you know, so that you use your life experience and wisdom toward improvement in mobility, stability and a feeling of integrated well-being. Thus, you continue to build on all your knowledge to move onto a path of consistent progress, in mind and body.
With this approach, you decide how far to challenge yourself. Since you are constantly listening to your own feedback, you decrease the risk of injury and accelerate recovery and progress.
For acute cases, or in order to address special issues and ‘jump-start’ the process, learning can begin with an online course, few Individual Lessons (FI). However, the aim of Mind Body Studies is to empower you to understand how you operate and expand on that ability, so that you become self-reliant and achieve autonomy.
