I am bringing in Karin Gurtner to talk about Movement Therapy and how we as bodyworkers can learn from that practice and add value to the work we do with our clients. Karin is the founder of the art of motion, training in movement®, a renowned training organization for Contemporary Pilates & Slings Myofascial Training based in Switzerland and Australia. Her resume is quite impressive with certifications in massage, gyrokenisis, pilates, yoga, personal training and many many more. Without taking the next several minutes to list off all of her accomplishments and accreditations, hopefully it is suffice to say she is incredibly experienced, and a motivated learner through and through.
This is Part 1 of our conversation, as we had so much content to cover that I thought it best to break it up in to two episodes. That being said, we do cover quite a bit in this first part, everything from what it means to move and how that effects our relationship with our body, to the value of conscious movement training, and finally we get more technical and discuss the difference between proprioception and interception. I really enjoyed my conversation with Karin, she has so much energy and excitement around learning about the body and how it works. Not only is her work inspiring, but her zest for life is contagious as well.
She also has the honor of being my first guest to lead my audience through some movements during the episode. I’m curious to hear how that lands for you, so please send me an email through the website www.howsthepressure.com and let me know if it worked for you. I give you my conversation with Karin Gurtner.
