The lessons offered in the Intermediate Awareness Through Movement® program are created with the experienced mover in mind.
Many of the series themes offered in the Intermediate Awareness Through Movement section are a continuation of one of our All Levels series. For some of the series, the movements are more complex and incredibly challenging. For other lessons, its the quality of attention that's demanding.
As you already know, this work can go beyond solving physical problems in improving all that you do. One of the greatest gifts of this work is that it can help you to be more attuned to yourself. For many, this deepens their passions and curiosities and inspires them to explore what moves them. For others, it simply brings a greater sense of ease and contentment to everyday activities.
As you explore the Intermediate lessons offered here, you'll expand your ability to tap into your imagination and move into a deeper understanding of what it means to be embodied. You'll be challenged to move in new ways you may never have imagined. You will experience mindful movement in a series of lessons that link together to build your movement skills and repertoire.
As always, the lessons are not recipes for "correct" movement, they do not tell you how to breathe or walk, sit or stand. They teach you how to become your own best expert on what's appropriate and efficient for you, and to deepen your awareness. Over time, you'll develop your ability to consciously perceive how you move and how to quickly let go of excess effort & unnecessary tension. These skills and knowledge will allow you to develop new and effortless movements.
I guarantee that if you continue to explore your Movement & Mindfulness practices, you will tap into a sense of ease and power that goes far beyond what you have ever imagined!
