The Academy of Mindful Movement
Instructor Level 1 Training
What is a Mindful Movement
An instructor who:
• Respects and protects the safety and health of the mover’s body
• Teaches their students/athletes/performers to pay attention to body sensations to guide their movement
• Teaches their movers to move from the inside, out
• Teaches with continuity of consciousness, rather than with scattered, haphazard lack of awareness
• Enhances Joy and Self-awareness

The Academy accepts experienced instructors of any movement practice: athletic, artistic, fitness, recreational, therapeutic.
We train instructors to teach with greater awareness, to enhance the safety & sustainability of their movement practice, and we certify to the public that our Instructors are teaching their practice safely, mindfully – and Joyfully.
“The training videos and follow up questions make the material easy to understand and remember.
Going over the material in the live group sessions reinforces our learning.
And the Pods allow us to think about and apply what we have learned to improve our teaching.”
