WOMEN MOVING MOUNTAINS
Summer Movement Practicum
You're on a mission to kick ass at work, raise your kids, and give back.
You leverage your energy, passion, and time to change the world.
You've been caring for everyone else through the pandemic with little energy left for your own massive transitions -
career upheaval, relationship shift, the confounding changes of perimenopause.
You know that regular movement lifts your soul, clears your head, and makes your body feel better - but like most busy, career-driven women, you've found it hard to find and stick to a workout plan.
You might feel like:
you want to move regularly but struggle with motivation
you're burnt out on your usual workout routine and would like to experiment with new activities with other friendly beginners
your body has changed and you need to find a new jam
you're moving for the 1st time or in a long time and feel like you have to be an expert before you even start
you're new to town and need activity buddies
you're intimidated by the neighborhood Bendite-Olympian sprinting past your mailbox!
to find an exercise/workout that you actually ENJOY and will keep doing!
movement to be something that lights you up and superpowers your day
to be nourished by community and the outdoors
to appreciate and make peace with your body
You want the energy to MOVE MOUNTAINS.
WOMEN MOVING MOUNTAINS Summer Movement Practicum will provide a supportive space among women where you'll be able to...
build your connection with and confidence in your body
experiment with new kinds of movement in the company of other friendly beginners
gently examine your past and present mindset around movement, fitness, and exercise
envision and enact your own sustainable 'movement practice'
How will we do this?
WOMEN MOVING MOUNTAINS is a 12 week movement practicum starting in late May 2022. We’ll meet every week for the 1st 6 weeks, and then every other week for the 2nd 6 weeks. In every meeting week, we’ll meet twice - once for a discussion group, and once for a movement activity.
The entire group will convene on movement activity days. To keep the discussion portion intimate, we’ll have two smaller groups of 4-8 women meeting at different times.
We'll talk about:
Your movement practice as a tool for self-care, discovery, and general badassery
Making joyful and intuitive movement choices
The construction of your motivational toolkit - your vision, values, and support
Bringing clarity and compassion to your past experiences with movement, fitness, and exercise
Fortifying yourself against the toxic messaging of diet, fitness, and grind culture
Evaluating your movement experiences via a journaling practice
Putting your passion into action - stewarding movement communities and the local environment
Becoming a resilient mover with the confidence to try new things, shape your daily movement practice to your needs, energize the rest of your life, and inspire those around you
Movement experiments may include:
pickleball, Zumba, yoga, paddleboarding, kayaking, aquarobics, tai chi, bouldering/climbing, hiking, nature walks with cameras, running, gardening, a kettlebell class, mountain biking, roller skating, frisbee golf, a team sport like kickball...
