Elementally Intuitive Movement

EIM is a flow-arts based functional movement practice; intended for all ages and stages of (self-propelled) development. 

It includes Elementally Intuitive Movement 101 and Elemental Implement Manipulation. 

I offers in-person guidance through the six levels of EIM, for pod/groups of 12 or less; the rate is the same ($80/hr), regardless of class size--gather together, separately, and save--plus it's fun to gather together, knowing we are giving each other enough space because EIM requires each body have at least 6 feet of space, or more, to explore their sphere freely. 

We wear masks to help reduce airborne particulate (like pollen and dust); to show our respect for each other; and as a form of eustress training (choosing to do something uncomfortable bc we CAN--and getting better at it because we are choosing to practice getting better at it). 

My goal is to provide you with a daily practice that you can maintain on your own, with minimal guidance on my part--because you have learned how to listen to your own body's signals, as it communicates to you, the navigator. 

After 17 years working on human bodies, I want to help prevent the wear & tear I witnessed on my massage table--EIM is a gentle practice that helps keep my own (very particular) vessel mobile, and relatively pain-free (after a lifetime of chronic pain). I'm eager to share it with you and your loved ones, at your preferred outdoor location--be it your back/front yard, or at a local park.

Elementally Intuitive Movement 101 (FREE)
PUBLISHED

EIM is a flow-arts based functional movement program, that guides you and your family through the process of establishing a fun addition to your self-care routine; helping keep your bodies mobile, as you develop and age. 

Rather than teach specific choreography/drills, EIM guides you through a conscious exploration of your particular body, with your unique dimensions, through your sphere--so your nervous system learns the most effective/efficient ways to move through space, according to the biomechanical design of your particular vessel.

EIM is divided into six levels (O-5); and is presented via exploration of the six Foundations of EIM: Breath, Center, Base, Spheres of Awareness, Adaptation, and Intuitive Integration.

Take your time--practice each level for a week, and you have 36 week program. The accompanying articles contain links that may help parents better explain the information I'm sharing regarding how our bodies function, and may inspire lesson planning.

Our bodies are always changing; and so is life. Practicing adapting to change, in a safe way (eustress), helps support our ability to cope with life's challenges (distress) when they come along. Choosing to challenge ourselves, together, in fun way that helps keep our bodies mobile and feeling capable, helps us better navigate through life. 

EIM 101 is free! 

If you choose to show appreciation for what I'm sharing, whether once, or as monthly subscribers ($3+), then you get access to the Elemental Implement Manipulation series I have produced to show my appreciation for your appreciation! Twelve non-Fire implements, representing Water, Earth, Air, Metal, and Wood (and combinations thereof).
