Description

Many of us live our life 10 feet in front of our body and don’t even know it. We are so conditioned to 
think, plan and prepare that we often don’t notice what’s happening at home, in our own body, until we 
are really suffering. Although the body is designed to move, we sit for long periods of time listening and 
hearing painful stories that can generate tightness and restriction within us creating pain and suffering 
over time.  
Mindful movement is a simple practice that helps us turn attention inward, to our own inner landscape 
of sensations, hearing what our body longs for and needs.  It can be practiced anytime, anyplace 
including the 5-minute break between client sessions. This simple self-care practice supports our health 
and well-being by strengthening the mind/body connectionLet’s explore and practice gentle stretches 
that care for our body and increase awareness of the present moment during Mindful Moments for Me.  

Objectives

1.Empower colleagues to practice simple self-care throughout the day.

2.How this practice impacts clients
