"I found your instruction very helpful (in the Parkinson's movement class) and I have already incorporated some of the movements into my daily regiment."
Educating All Movers and Non-Movers
The beauty in movement observation and retraining is that there is something in it for everyone. Your knees hurt? Your shoulder hurts? Your hips hurt after surgery? You have trouble getting in and out of your car? Your feet hurt? The answers may be in how you move and where in your body you are NOT moving, causing pain elsewhere. Sometimes a lesson in movement awareness- in how you as an individual are moving and in the many movement options that are available to you, are all you need to experience change.
What if I don’t move?
Everyone who is alive moves. In breathing we move, our hearts moves, our blood flows. In sitting absolutely still, there is movement occurring in your body just to keep you sitting “still” as the earth rotates on its axis.
Do you sit at a desk all day; does your body feel stiff, inflexible? Often you feel stiff and have aches and pains because you were in one position too long.
For those of you who do not consider yourself movers, do not enjoy exercise, would rather curl up with a book or play a video game hunched over your phone or tablets, or computers, or perhaps you are in a wheelchair or have had a stroke . .
Jackie offers non-threatening fun classes and sessions in movement and body awareness for non-movers and limited movers, for children and adults and for you who just want to finally feel that you belong in your body.
