At Zenergize we enhance your experience as we teach Mindful Movement.
Mindfulness can enhance the enjoyment of being in the moment and living a more fulfilled and happy life.
Professor Mark Williams, former director of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, says that mindfulness means knowing directly what is going on inside and outside of ourselves, moment by moment.
“It’s easy to stop noticing the world around us. It’s also easy to lose touch with the way our bodies are feeling and to end up living ‘in our heads’ – caught up in our thoughts without stopping to notice how those thoughts are driving our emotions and behaviour,” he says.
An important part of mindfulness is reconnecting with our bodies and the sensations they experience in the present moment. This is achieved throughout our Pilates classes and workshops as we teach you to connect your movements with breath and become aware of how different muscles and areas of your body feel. It can positively change the way we see ourselves and our lives.
