Occupy Your Body

Movement classes in Calgary, Canada

Do you spend most of your week sitting still, working on a computer? Join us for these weekly classes as we get into motion, sweat, move, release and grow our somatic (body-based/felt-sense) intelligence - right here in Calgary!

Common side-effects of this type of movement practice are:

  • Improve your overall physical health & well-being
  • Expand your sensory awareness: Experience colours as more vivid, sounds as richer, smells and tastes as more complex, gain greater sensitivity to sensations
  • Strengthen your body and increase muscle tone
  • Improve posture
  • Decrease pain and tension in the body
  • Create greater flexibility in both body & mind
  • Increase your movement efficiency, freeing up energy all day long
  • Experience greater comfort and pleasure in your own skin
  • Gain greater awareness of your emotional self
  • Improve your intuition
  • Access greater creativity
  • Increase your feelings of well-being, trust, joy and connection to others
  • Find greater presence in the moment
  • Gain greater ability to meet and transform feelings of distress, anxiety and fear
  • Increase your appreciation for the wonder and pleasure of the embodied experience
  • Get great exercise without even feeling like it's exercise!
