Workshop Description: 

This presentation introduces a mindfulness-based method for incorporating movement in psychotherapy. The purpose of this approach is to help motivate clients (especially those that are sedentary) to experience the health benefits of physical activity; and encourage clinical utilization of contemplative, embodied practices. Moving beyond simply recommending that clients (and clinicians!) be active, mindful movement taps into our intrinsic physicality as essential for health and well-being.

Workshop Objectives: 

Based on the content of this workshop, attendees will be able to: 

  • Describe the connection between 'mindfulness' and 'movement'
  • Explain how simple, non-technical movement patterns can be implemented and how they may benefit mind/body integration.
  • Develop the sequence of personally meaningful movements to be practiced with moment-by-moment awareness that could also be taught selectively to clients.
  • Apply the concept of 'embodied awareness' to augment how they could work with a specific client (or client issue). 

Skill Level:
