Planning a Mindful Movement Session
Have you ever wondered how I plan my 30-45min regeneration mindful movement sessions? Well, today I’m giving you a peek into my six step process. I hope it sheds some light on what the difference is between a movement session and a mindful movement session is.
Step one is to pick a focus or theme for the day (hips, feet, nervous system, soft tissue, dissociative/efficient movement)
Step two is to pick a teaching point- (self care, breathing, embodying anatomy)
Step three is to start with a guided check-in.
Step four is the movement sequence, typically: breathing, side bending, flexion/extension, rotation
Step five is to pick thoughtful transitions from standing-to floor- to standing
Step six is another guided check-in to feel change in the body.
1. Theme- hip mobility
2. Teaching point- dissociative and efficient movement
3. Tall Kneeling check- in
4. Movement Sequence-
>> breathing with exhale focus
>> resisted posterio-lateral expansion
>> thoracic spine articulation (circular)
>> half- kneel side bending and rotation with breathing
>> quadruped Cat/cow
>> transition to opposite half kneel with kneeling cat
>> pelvic clocks in quadruped
>> quadruped rocking
>> transition to tall kneel, half kneel to stand
>> SL hurdle mobility with ball at knee
>> hook lying hip flexion and circles with ball at knee
>> quadruped hip circles ball at knee
>> transition kneeling Cat to forward fold, to roll up to stand.
5. Transitions- tall kneel, kneeling Cat, half kneeling, roll down/up
6. Standing check-in
