Mindful movement is simply a meditation practice that uses physical movement to help us become more aware of what is going on in our minds and bodies . Many people find that it is a very natural way to release the day’s tension from the body and mind, throught slow , gentle stretching and the realignment of muscles and joints.

It can be useful to follow some sort of guidance for this practice , either recorded or with a mindfulness teacher, since some of the exercises require quite pricise movements , but you can get a taste of what is involved by following the instructions below. If you have any health concerns, such as back problems , it might be a good idea to consult your GP, or specialist practioner if you have one, before trying Mindful Movement.

While carrying out the movements, keep in mind that the aim is not to feel pain or to challenge the limits of your body . It is important to look after yourself be guided by any signals from your body telling you how far to stretch and how long to hold any position.

Sometimes your body may tell you to back of from a stretch .You will then need to ask yourself if you are pushing yourself too much. If you find yourself doing this, make a mental note of it while making a skillful choice about whether to keep pushing or to withdraw totally or partially.

As you learn to pay attention to your bodily sensations , good and bad and the thoughts they trigger, you will find a new interconnectedness between your mind and body. Many people , particularly those with chronic pain, find that instead of fighting their bodies, the Mindfulness Movement practice teaches them a new relationship with it.
