Without movement the body begins to seize up. You experience distressing immobility. Your muscles weaken and begin to break down. Your range of motion is more and more diminished. Discomfort and pain become an accepted, daily inevitability and depression often follows close behind.
This is not something you have to accept and at Movement 4 Life (M4L) we challenge the inevitabilities of the body’s aging and slowing down processes and instead have an approach to wellness through movement.
We embrace four key components: breathing, alignment of the body, strength training and increased flexibility. Every person taking lessons and learning dance technique will benefit from these components because they are foundational to your balance, your endurance, the flow of blood and energy through your body and the precision and grace of your movements.
We seek to reveal each person’s brilliance, regardless of age, physical health, limitations or handicaps through our mission to help each person find optimal involvement, expression, and eventually, overall wellness.
As passionate movement enthusiasts, we want to awaken everyone to reach their personal best. Movement helps a person develop on multi-dimensional levels; physically, emotionally and in some cases spiritually.
It is true that life is in constant motion, and with time passing so rapidly, what we do for ourselves routinely serves as the building blocks for long-term change. By reinforcing good habits, and applying learned sensory tools, participating couples and individuals can find greater personal fulfilment in their own lives.
