Dynamic Mindfulness

Dynamic Mindfulness combines  both gentle and more intense active healing excercises which relieve stress, transforms negative patterns, and helps us to be balanced and healthy. It increases our enjoyment and appreciation of life. 

Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions.

This form of mindfulness is a quick, deep , yet gentle and thorough way to break old, ingrained patterns in the bodymind .

  • identify stress more quickly and subsequently do something about it
  • become more connected to your body

  • learn to express and share “shame” with colleagues in a safe and constructive way and  therefore communicate easier with colleagues
  • have more focus, are more creative and perform better
  • release stress and “stuck” energy via highly effective time efficient, easy, practical, playful meditation, movement and  excercises.

Dynamic Mindfulness benefits individuals dealing with the following health conditions or problems:

  • Physical tension, pain, stress from sitting long hours at work behind a computer
