Mindful Movement lessons
with Iryna

Mondays at 19:30 CET online via Zoom

The Mindful Movement lessons are based on a range of somatic education techniques, which focus on learning how to use your body in a more efficient and at the same time more easy, pleasant, and pain-free way through gentle series of movements.

Based on neuroplasticity, these lessons take us back to the exploration of movements from early developmental stages, creating a profound, foundational change in how we move and use our bodies. They can help to unlock movement patterns and change habits from the core, allowing us to move beyond limitations, including overcoming stress- and movement pattern-related chronic pain.

Who would benefit from lessons?

These lessons are beneficial for people with chronic pain or strong muscular tension, as well as for people who want to improve and refine their skills in any kind of movement activity (sportsmen, dancers, etc.). They can also provide relief for people with chronic stress or burnout, resulting in a sense of calm and feeling grounded in one's own body.

The outcomes of the lessons are a bit different for everyone (as everyone's situation is unique), however, most people experience:

  • improvement of posture and movement,

  • release of muscular tension,

  • decrease in chronic pain,

  • feeling more calm and relaxed,

  • better quality of sleep.

What does the lesson look like and what will I need?

During the lesson, you will follow verbal guidance and do a series of gentle movements exploring your body's capabilities and sensations. Some lessons are calmer, others are a bit more active. Every movement will be approached with the idea of safe exploration within the limits of your own comfort. 

To make your experience the most comfortable and enjoyable, please prepare the following:

  • quiet room

  • comfortable floor space (big enough to spread both arms to the sides)

  • computer or laptop with a webcam (so that I could see you from head to toe when you are lying during the lesson)

  • warm and comfortable clothing (most people underestimate the number of layers they need for a comfortable staying on the floor for some time, even on a warm day 😉)

  • a mat or rug to lie on (could be covered by a blanket for more comfort)

  • something for head support (a big-size towel or blanket will work great).
