Part 5/5 – Mindful Movement For Well-being

Witten by Leah Skurdal

Have you ever noticed the relationship between achy, tired neck muscles and a person who seems like a pain in the neck? Or do you know someone who gets a migraine headache when they go home for the holidays to visit their dysfunctional family? The mind, body, and emotions connection can create stuck energy patterns in the body that increase stress, anxiety, and physical pain – especially during the sometimes joyful, sometimes stressful holiday season.

Years ago, a stubborn knot in my shoulder caused me a lot of stress and persisted for weeks. My massage therapist nailed the knot with her elbow and nothing relieved the pain – until I brought mindful movement to my body and allowed the unexpressed anger toward my father to surface. The painful knot melted away. Funny how that works.

When we transform stuck energy patterns in the body through mindful movement, we can heal emotional wounds and build inner resilience.

According to the article, Getting Started with Mindful Movement on

Mindful movement allows us to check in with our bodies and get moving in a way that can help us lower stress, release stagnant energy, and strengthen our mind-body connection. It’s a great way to practice self-care by incorporating both mental and physical well-being. Oftentimes, when we engage in mindful movement to help our body feel better, our mood is uplifted, too.

Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator, Aundrea Veney uses mindfulness tools to support wellbeing. Aundrea reminds us:

When we feel disconnected from the body, oftentimes, we’re carrying on in  disjointed way – very logically and analytically – that doesn’t bring in the heart and body. We need to check in with ourselves and ask, ‘What am I feeling? What is present for me now?’ Being mindful of oneself is the first step and then that spills over into the environment around us.

I am excited to be hosting Aundrea Veney at the third Wellness For All Resilience Building event, Resilience for the Holidays, where Aundrea will share her expertise in mindful movement. In her talk, Aundrea will be highlighting mindfulness movement and bringing attention to practices that help ground, nourish and sustain wellbeing and build resilience.
