WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR COMPANY'S GUIDING PHILOSOPHIES?
SELF-NOURISHING APPROACH: You are not a machine, so why would you workout like one? The typical approach to exercise is that we yearn to be better, and we believe that if we build a different body, everything will be better. We look to systems and ideas outside of ourselves to build a better body, but that gives us very little experience of our own selves and the information we contain. What if you do not have to impose an outside model onto yourself? What if the body you have right now has more than everything you need to feel the way you want to feel, express the way you want to express, connect the way you want to connect, and fill your life with wonder and beauty? What if exercise connected you to your personal potency? What if exercise exists to nourish your experience of who you are?
EMBRACE THE AWKWARD: Whenever you are learning something new, you encounter the unknown. Movement and bodywork literally put your body into a new set of positions. It is normal to feel awkward when learning something new in your body. This is where the fun lies. It’s not about performance or “Doing It Right,” its about the possibility you open by doing something new and unknown, what is there to discover? What can you learn? By engaging in new physical positions and movements, changes in perspective and outlook naturally occur on a regular basis. This is where your mind expands! When you EMBRACE THE AWKWARD, your movement practice becomes a fertile playground, teaching you more than you ever knew about humor, compassion, courage, patience, love, and mastery.
BODY AS PROCESS: "The paradigm needs to shift from body as object to body as process," Liz Koch discusses this essential shift of approach in her book Core Awareness, Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise, and Dance. Your body is a processor of all aspects of self, from the micro (cell) to the macro (universe). It is constantly in-process of dwelling and existing on this planet, expressing as you, in the present moment. Our bodies are perpetually processing in loops (think neural circuits), responding to information in our physical and energetic environment. With all this going on, our bodies have built into them tremendous ability to thrive with resilience, adapt, and prosper. Nourish Pulse is devoted to nurturing you as your process.
