What does Move to Nurture mean?

I often get the question, “move to nurture what?” or “move to nurture who?” It is a great opener to start talking about self care. And how when you care for yourself, you nurture all the others in your life too.

Move to nurture is my business name, it is my personal mantra and it is my intention for my clients.

My personal experience is when I am feeling depleted, stressed, agitated of just a bit off, there is nothing like moving in a self loving way to feel better. It helps to have a guide that understands the inner workings of the body to make sure you focus your attention where you will reap great benefits.

So much of our motivation for exercise can come from a different place. It can come from not loving ourselves just as we are, wanting to change our shape. Sometimes we move because we feel guilty about something we have eaten!

When we move to nurture ourselves we bring a positive intent to our bodies. We listen, we befriend, we reconnect, we learn new things. Within a guided class your body leads the way.

As a teacher I select exercises that allow your body to reveal things to you. My instructions are simple and very targeted. I make it hard to cheat! And I want you to work from where you are at so you develop new movement patterns and get stronger and more flexible quickly.

I teach in Pilates mat classes in Byron Bay on Thursdays at 14 Kingsley Street. 10am is Restorative Pilates (safe for osteoporosis), 12:15 is Lunchtime Pilates and 2pm is Pilates for parents (post natal safe).
