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 our inherent early movement vocabulary. We build this vocabulary during our first year of life to organize ourselves as we participate with the world.  

As we acquire this sequence of potential movement vocabulary it allows us, mostly unconsciously, to move through our days and lives as we  participate with surroundings, relationships, situations, environments, and organizations. It also is the alphabet of movement we use to do dance steps, yoga poses, and jog. 

This is not a vocabulary that is done once but needs to be practised and activated continuously as we navigate and progress through the phases in life.

This is our first language of communication. It builds a foundation for perception, body language, language, learning, interaction, thinking, and ability to  create. This vocabulary teaches 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 and meet the next milestone. 

As adults, most of this movement vocabulary is taken for granted. We don't have to think about how 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 our vocabulary, influences our ability to meet the day, concentrate on reaching goals and work under stress.  

This vocabulary supports our 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 determine 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.
