Without movement the body begins to seize up. You experience distressing immobility. Muscle tissue weakens and with time atrophies, and begins to break down. As range of motion becomes more and more diminished discomfort and pain become an accepted, daily inevitability and depression often follows.
This is not something you have to accept. Though it eventually happens to most, the challenge is to devise an exercise practice which can ward off or delay it. Movement 4 Life (M4L) challenges the inevitabilities of the body’s aging with intentional movement, joy, connection and purpose.
We embrace four key components: breathing, alignment of the body, strength training and increased flexibility. Every person taking lessons and learning movement technique will benefit from these components as they are foundational to balance, endurance, the flow of blood and energy throughout the body.
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.
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 fulfillment in their own lives.
