Moving Thought

Welcome to my website

Create synergy in our lives as we move together.

Moving Thought offers personal coaching around study, work and life, supported by movement classes, group courses, and further education workshops

The foundation of Moving Thought is the inherent movement vocabularies which first organize us to participate in the world.  

These inherent movement vocabularies are much more than just the dance step, yoga pose, or the jog we take. These are the movements we use to organise ourselves continuously throughout the day and lives to participate with surroundings, relationships, situations, environments, and organizations.  

We first learn to organise ourselves in the world through baby movements: making it our first language of communication as well as laying the foundation for body language, interactions and our ability to participate. These movement sequences later help us to know where to place a foot, how far to reach, how fast to go, be able to follow, organise us to arrive on time, be ready to participate for an event or a milestone that needs to be met.

As adults, most of these movement vocabularies have become automatic.  We take this organization of movement for granted as we move from laying, to sitting. to standing, using our hands, coordinating our hands, eyes and feet. However, how well we have been able to access and organize with this body intelligence influences our ability to meet the everyday, concentrate on reaching goals and work under stress.  

These vocabularies are not worked on one time and then incorporated into our movement repetory,  but should continually activate when called upon during varying levels of engagement as we progress through the phases in life. 

These movements also support and influence our perception as we search for dynamic balance within the many aspects of our lives and meet the challenges offered by life. Over the course of a lifetime, how well we have been able to access these vocabularies will also have a determination in our 'choreography": enabling us to develop (hidden) potential in ourselves, create new contacts and networks, challenge what we know and find new perspectives for growth. 

Practicing these movement patterns gives us insights into reactions, interactions and understanding of missed opportunities. Does the way we organise support our actions or hinder our ability to fully participate in our lives?

Most of us likely will experience a period of disconnect during our lives. When we feel out of balance, not able to do what is expected of us, deal with what is going on around us and our ability to cope with it. 

Do you accidentally bump into things? Do you find yourself disorientated? Are you finding it difficult to move on after one or more significant events in your life?  Have you arrived at a standstill in your study or work? Have you lost perspective of where to go? Do you repeat the same behavioral patterns? Do seemingly changed patterns return to the way they were? 

When we connect, we build synergy and move with flow and effortlessness through life. 

Come and join!

Revisiting these early movement vocabularies can re-engage, dust off or finish the processes these patterns were meant to give us.

Renewing and refreshing this movement foundation is essential for reaching our goals, finding balance in our lives  and for our well being.
