"Since joining this group, I have been able to connect with the beauty and pleasure that it truly is to be in my body.

I spent so much time in disconnection and repelling the experience of being in my body and so much of my life stuck in my mind.

I've been moving into a space where it is actually a nourishing and supportive experience for me to be present in my body, and I'm grateful for the deepening of this relationship every single day"

How to prepare for class.


NLMM is practiced on a yoga mat or blanket. You should wear clothes that are comfortable and non-restrictive.

Classes take place via Zoom, so you can practice in the comfort of your home - you will need a private space with no interruptions. If you prefer to have your camera off, you can, and I recommend investing in a sleep mask to facilitate your ability to minimise distractions and drop into your body.

If goes without saying that phones on aeroplane mode is advised.

The method can be practiced at any age, fitness level and mobility. NLMM is always practiced on hands and knees, but if you have trouble maintaining this position, you can lay down or remain seated and still receive incredible benefits from the practice.

 

Disclaimer: I will be there to guide you in the practice of NLMM as your teacher/facilitator.

When you sign up for class, you are agreeing to take full responsibility for your health during and afterwards.

If you miss the session and have not given at least 4-hours' notice, you will not be able to rebook or receive a refund.

A deeper look at The Non-Linear Movement Method®.


The Non-Linear Movement Method® (NLMM) is a powerful somatic modality developed by my teacher, Michaela Boehm, over the past two decades of instruction and practice.

I am delighted to be an officially certified teacher (and devotee) of this movement therapy, meaning I can support you with connecting to your inner landscape, releasing physical contractions/emotional closures, and heightening sensual/sexual pleasure. I am qualified to teach four unique NLMM modalities - my classes focus on a combination of releasing, calling in (embodied manifestation), pleasure, and moving what we're feeling.


This method has many applications and benefits
:


- regulating your nervous system

The demands of modern life create stress and tension in the body and an overactive mind. NLMM encourages the identifying and unwinding of patterns of contraction. Through gentle, non-force movements bodily tension and underlying mental loops are relieved. The result is a systematic, self-guided unburdening of the nervous system.

- identifying and processing emotions
As the body unwinds and the mind relaxes its pressured pace, the emotions associated with these contractive patterns become apparent and can be dissolved through the movement. You can note recurring emotional loops for further processing and at the same time allow emotions to simply arise and let go.

- releasing trauma patterns into flow
One of the common results of traumatic experience (fresh and old alike) is “freeze”, a state in which body, mind and emotions are stuck in a state of numbness. Often “freeze” is falsely perceived as a feeling of “calm/nothing”, which results in an inability to release the experience and ease the bodily patterns of hold. NLMM facilitates a continued movement, which gently opens the freeze pattern and allows for recognition and release of the underlying bodily and emotional patterns.

- uniting mind, body and heart in intimacy with physical sensation
Through continued engagement with release of contraction and facilitation of emotional awareness, the ingrained patterns become both more apparent and less pronounced. Over time, physical sensation can be more fully engaged with, and the acceptance as well as tolerance of all sensation increases. Intimacy with whatever is present is possible. Body, Emotion and Mind can align to support an integrated approach to feeling and understanding existing behavioural patterning.

- creating deeper bodily responsiveness
NLMM increases your capacity to release and process contractions, stress and emotional tension while at the same time sensitising you to your internal landscape. This is called “interoception”, the ability to feel what is “inside” ... via the body, we become highly attuned to all sensations and can note, react or release fluidly and without having to attend to traumatic or suppressed backlog.

- opening access to your body's natural wisdom and genius
By putting emphasis on movement and circumventing the analytical mind and loops of tense thinking the natural intelligence of our bodies is accessed. Through gentle guidance the mechanisms of “freeze” and refusal to feel are being loosened and our innate bodily wisdom can create the necessary actions and releases.

- reawakening your life-force energy and sensuality
As tension, contraction, and emotion are being released, the body becomes sensitized and we're able to feel deeper. One of the results of this sensitisation is an ability to feel increased pleasure and well-being.
