Week 1 | Focus & Awareness | Running 1

[Session 1] Welcome to the first Movement for Mind session. Our theme this week is body focus and awareness – getting used to the programme and how we move. Our lead coach, David Lenneman, will guide us through the session, which is all about learning how to pace ourselves and getting used to the five “gears” we use throughout the programme. We’ll also become aware of how our body feels as we move in the different gears.

Remember, try to do the programme in order and do this session and session two before you move on. If you’ve done the running session, there’s no need to also do walking, but you can switch between the two.

Week 1 | Focus & Awareness | Running 2

[Session 2] This session continues the theme of body focus and awareness with David Lenneman. We’ll revisit the gears from session one, then David guides us through a simple body scan as we move. This is a short set of exercises that will help us align our body more naturally and efficiently.
We’ll also start to see the impact of just focusing our attention on the body and how that can help us to “be in the moment”.

Remember, try to do the programme in order and do session one and this session before you move on. If you’ve done the running session, there’s no need to also do walking, but you can switch between the two.

Week 2 | Breath & Movement | Running 1

[Session 1] This week’s theme is breath and movement, with expert Gray Caws. In session one, we’ll learn about breath awareness and paying attention to our natural breathing rhythms. Using slower gears, Gray will explain how the breath can be an important tool in guiding our movement.

We’ll also look at breathing in and out through the nose and learning about the health benefits of this technique.

Week 2 | Breath & Movement | Running 2

[Session 1] Continuing the theme of breath and movement with Gray Caws, this session will help us build more confidence and control in our movement through guided breathwork. We’ll move up through the gears a little and focus on keeping control over our breath in higher intensity sessions.

We’ll also learn to listen to our body and how pauses in our breathing can support our physical effort.

Week 3 | Mindful Movement | Running 1

[Session 1] Our theme this week is mindful movement, with expert Roos Tji. Very often, moving is something we do while our thoughts are elsewhere. Moving mindfully brings us back into the “here and now” and allows us to be more present. Roos will connect us to our body and breath by bringing our attention to our movement.

The whole session is done at a slow or easy tempo, so that we can fully notice how we move and how it makes us feel.

Remember, try to do the programme in order and do this session and session two before you move on. If you’ve done the running session, there’s no need to also do walking, but you can switch between the two.

Week 3 | Mindful Movement | Running 2

[Session 2] In this session, we continue to learn about mindful movement and discover that how we feel has an impact on how we move, and vice versa. In this session, Roos Tji will introduce different techniques to help us stay focused on our body and breath and connect our body and emotions.

Again the intensity of this session is generally low – we’re not aiming for speed or distance. The joy is in the movement itself.
