The art of movement
The art of tuning your body, as if it were an instrument and being permanently in a good relationship with it
Learn to use Your Body Bravely
Embodiment helps children and adults that seek help with learning difficulties, emotional difficulties and problems with movement itself.
A few years ago I took a Baby Embodiment course with the founders of the practice Ingrid Ruhrmann and Beate Döpke and realized that this was the missing link in my work. Nowadays I incorporate my learning into the work I do with all lessons, sessions, workshops and training.
Embodiment exercises use the movements humans make as they grow from baby to child. Therapeutically they are applied in the sequence that we would learn them, from the first experiences of our own weight to the rotations that enable crawling. The theory is that gaps in this natural development have led to the problems a person now faces – be they to do with their cognitive, emotional, psychological or physical selves.
You will hear the term ‘incarnate’ used a lot by Embodiment practitioners. This term describes the way that a person’s innate self is turned into a physical self that moves, feels and acts in a particular way. Embodiment exercises support this process of incarnating your self.
“It has a deep meaning for life whether you can use your instrument of a body bravely or whether every moment presents you with treacherous obstacles.” R. Steiner”
