Natural Movement

ThriveClinic & Studio is delighted to share space with Move free.

What is MoveFree? Is it a yoga class? Pilates?

It’s a combination of Pilates and yoga but also biomechanics and movement neurology.

Hmmm... what’s biomechanics you ask? Imagine a machine which is working out of alignment, and that wonky movement was repeated again and again. Over time there would be wear which may cause a breakdown. Whilst the human body is far more complex than a machine, the same thinking applies. Biomechanics looks at the difference between sloppy, unconnected, tiring movement and how we move at our most effective and efficient - the kind of stuff that makes us feel happy and well.

When we align, or stack, our bodies better, we move better. And when we move in a more varied way, as our bodies are capable of doing, we move better then too.

During a MoveFree class or 1:1 you will explore how your body moves through a variety of different patterns. When it feels stuck, or weak, or sore then it shows us where your mechanics are lacking. These glitches come from us using our limbs and joints in repetitive, two dimensional ways (think about texting, or driving a car).

You’ll learn how to open up your thinking around how you walk, run, lift, and stand. Cool things happen when your brain starts thinking about all of the movement options available, instead of the 3 or 4 patterns we tend to stick to. MoveFree will also help you to find neutral resting positions where your body is totally at ease.

It’s also about making sure your brain can recruit the right muscles for the right tasks, and by reminding it that not all muscles need to used all the time - that’s priceless for folk who find they wonder around with their shoulders around their ears, have little or no butt muscle tone or lead their way through their life with their chin jutting forward!

What else could MoveFree do for you? You’re likely to have more freedom of movement, also fewer aches and pains. The aim is to give you more ownership of the range of things your body can do.

Huh? Ok so, for example, let’s say you’re a 35 year old mum of two, you might not think that your movement is limited, but you may feel that you’re not as agile as you were in your twenties. So, when you go to the park with the kids, you wouldn’t feel able to climb to the top of the climbing frame or swing on the monkey bars, even though you’d love to.

Now consider how you feel by the time you get to forty five, you find that you feel tighter again and less springy. By the time you get a bit older, you might find that you are now struggling to do things you did in your forties such as putting your socks on standing up, so you have to sit down to do it. In fact you’re sitting down to do a lot of stuff you didn’t used to.

So what we cover in our time together is how to create movement and keep moving in a way that reminds the body what it is capable of, keeps it supple and keeps the foundations of independent movement going for the rest of your life.

Because when you think about it, there’s a lot that we accept as ‘normal’ ageing that are really recoverable skills. It’s about reawakening the potential of your body.

Little changes in the way we stack our body make big difference in how our bodies feel.

Imagine the difference a bit of learning, some restorative exercises and a handful of little changes in your actions through the day can have!

If you’re willing to make teeny tiny changes to your habits and approach them with patience, compassion and whole hearted curiosity, then you’ll see real change in your life.

All sessions can be pay as you go, but there is a discount on a block booking. We understand that things crop up and schedules change so a block booking of 5 sessions may be used over 8 weeks. But, for this to work for everyone you need to cancel/change your booking more than 5 hours prior to the start of your session- that makes it fair on everyone. Even if it’s just to drop Georgina a text to let her know.

If you are unable to complete a block within 8 weeks due to extenuating circumstances the remainder of your sessions can be frozen until you are ready to return- but you need to speak to Georgina about this.

Refunds are at Georgina’s discretion.
