Expanding Your Movement with Nature & Community
At Nutritious Movement, our broader mission is pretty basic: We teach movement.
It’s the details that get more complicated. The first thing you need in order to move more is to move your own body, and your own body parts, more. So we have a ton of exercise instruction here.
But movement between one’s own feet and fingertips isn’t the body’s full movement potential. There are some movements you can only get from certain environments—meaning both where you’re moving and who you’re moving with. That’s why, to help you move as much as you can, a full movement program needs to include nature and community.
Just like prairie grasses, wolves, birds, and mice all keep each other in check, your movement keeps someone else moving, or prevents them from moving. Your movement dictates how much stuff you consume. Your movement is part of an ecological system.
Your Guide to Movement Ecology
This book of essays is our best reference and resource for expanding your ideas of natural movement. It explores why we need to think of our movement not as an isolated event confined to our own body, but as a vital part of the world’s health—our community in the largest sense.
