Our society has forgotten movement,
it has relegated it to a secondary position, as it has relegated the body to a lesser position than the mind.
Movement has become something to ‘do’ 2-3 times a week in the best scenarios – and the thoughts behind physical exercise don’t often lead to perseverance, as they do not light a flame in the soul.
It can be different.
We just need to remember that we have a body and that we are also a body in this earthly reality.
Movement is inherent to human nature. Human beings have moved a lot daily for most part of our existence as a species on this Earth, and this is even truer for our ancestors who were hunters and gatherers.
Movement was certainly tied to survival, but it was also a source of pleasure and fun, and a play tool. Through movement humans could connect with themselves, with others and with the environment.
We were born to move.
We were born to run, fight, jump, climb, crawl, and much more.
We were born to do it often, daily!
We now have the chance to start getting back the enormous amount of movement skills we have as human beings.
It is never to late to start, never!
I invite you to do it with me.
Let’s explore our current abilities, let’s go into the body to feel it and embody our physicality,
let’s challenge ourselves, let’s embrace failure and the consequent learning,
to become stronger, more flexible, more functional,
through research and exploration of the body in movement.
Let’s rediscover the pleasure in moving the body even in unexpected ways,
let’s go back to have fun and play as we did when we were children.
Movement will no longer be a burden, something we have to do.
It will become something we look forward to,
something we will be willing to integrate into our daily life for long-lasting change.
Let’s build together our antifragility,
which is resistance, resilience, adaptability to change.
And remember that
Movement is life.
What do we do in a Wild Movement session?
- First, we enter the connection with ourselves, others and the environment
- Then comes the Movement phase, with:
– warm up / joint mobility
– play (in couples / group)
– technical study of chosen skills
- We end with a relaxing activity, which may vary from session to session
