Why Movement Matters
Movement is life! Even in stillness we move, as our bodies actively work in keeping us alive, alert, attentive, and curious.
Why stop this energy?
Embodied knowledge means our body knows how to act. We assimilate new experiences by comprehending and adjusting to the context. And this implies relationships between people, space, and objects we interact with.
In an age where we fall easily into stagnation patterns, at home and work, movement becomes an essential skill for growth and self-awareness. Movement supports the body with the intelligence to generate energy for positive impact.
That is why movement matters.
