How to Quickly, Easily Feel Safe with COVID-19 Masterclass More than a Movement
Bring your fear, anxieties and worries to our upcoming free online classes. We will explore the Meditative Movement technique which has been found to reduce anxiety, depression and fatigue while improving emotional and functional well-being per the 2017 University of Minnesota research study.
In this 3-part series, you will learn strategies to help you and your loved ones be calmer amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. These empowering exercises can be performed during your routine day and are adaptable to anyone's physical ability.
Ellie Peterson, creator of the technique, was a divorced 23-year-old mother with three children under the age of five. Feeling depressed, she had little energy or enjoyment in her life. Her unhealthy habits caused her to feel disconnected from herself and others. She was a heavy smoker, weighing only 100 pounds, but still thought she was fat. Working as 'Ellie from the deli' making $5.30/hour, she didn't feel like she deserved that much.
The Meditative Movement program was born out of this pain. Ellie believes in the power of the body, mind and spirit to lead us through life. When you tap into your own personal power in this new way, you can be peaceful in each present moment because life is for us.
The I Am Safe Meditative Movement™ and I Am Loved Meditative Movement™ are below so you can give the movements a try. We have cardio, flexibility, balance and strengthening movements. You will learn movements that you can use during your normal routine day so you can take control of your mental and emotional states.
Our intention on offering these classes is that you:
understand why this program exists
explore mind/body concepts and research
practice the movements so your mind and body experience their power
create a community of like-minded beings who want to connect on a deeper level
Together we can be the change we want to see in the world. We can exercise our personal power in a new way to heal ourselves. I look forward to having you join me.
Thank you, Ellie
I Am Safe Meditative Movement™
Are you feeling more vulnerable hearing about the COVID-19 virus? Instead of panicking and feeling helpless, you can practice Meditative Movements™ to release your anxieties and fears. This approach is ideal for these kinds of stressful situations.
We follow the Centers for Disease Control's protocols like washing our hands to protect our physical bodies. What can you do for your own mental and emotional health? According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five U.S. adults experience mental illness each year. We all need to feel safe and confident amidst the stressors in our external environment. Even people who are not prone to depression or anxiety can have their health impacted with this kind of outbreak.
First, remember that you cannot control external events like the virus and natural disasters. Now what can you control? You can exercise your mind, body and spirit by practicing the I Am Safe Meditative Movement™. As you perform the movement, notice how you feel. Stay focused and practice the movement whenever you need to bring yourself back to the present moment.
I Am Loved Meditative Movement™
The I Am Loved Meditative Movement™ aligns your mind, your body and your being with life's mystery. Love is here. We can affirm this for ourselves and tap into it at any time.
When your mind is overwhelmed, it can easily think lack and fearful thoughts. Because of the mind body connection, you can then feel anxious, lost and powerless. To move you into a place of peace and calm, perform the I Am Loved Meditative Movement™. Feel the love that exists within you.
Your life experiences are unique to you. At one time or another, we have all had interactions with others that seem unloving. Sometimes we act unloving to ourselves. We are still loveable.
I believe this is our purpose on earth. To learn to love and respect ourselves. When we allow love to flow through us, we can give that same unconditional love freely to others. This is the gift you can give to yourself. You can see, feel, think, taste, smell, hear, and touch love in everything.
