Embodied Learning

WHAT IS EMBODIMENT

Innovation in learning

Most people associate learning with passive processes such as listening to a speaker or reading a book. This is a pretty common and valid way to become knowledgeable.

But how about being skillful?

At Lena’s Moves, we design, develop and deliver dynamic programmes with an impact, where knowledge is acquired not only through lectures but through movement of the body as well. There is, thus, a unique balance between receiving information, learning through a rich variety of creative tools and techniques and reflecting.

Embodiment is an established way to bring awareness from the mind to the whole body, as well as the other way around.  The embodied approach in training and coaching allows you to discover learning by yourself and with joy.

"The embodied approach helped me to relax both mentally and physically. I learned way more easily and felt better and more active the whole time."

LEARNING & INNOVATION

I was always busy with how to support people’s personal and professional development. Through adult learning, coaching and embodiment. These 3 areas were separate in my career. You can imagine them as 3 different circles in a parallel line.  

Working with these topics separately offered me a unique mixture of experiences, which led me to bring the circles closer to one another. Slowly I got attracted to their common elements: where embodiment meets coaching in the frame of adult learning. These elements formed the green area which is the area where innovation occurs.
This innovation in learning, I use while designing, developing and delivering educational programs.

"Embodiment made me realize that I had neglected a very important part of myself in the process of learning and experiencing – my own body! If you decide to let yourself go and experience what embodiment can do for you-you will be amazed. And Lena is there to guide you the whole way."
