Episode 261: The term “embodiment” is used plenty in the movement world, whether it’s yoga, acting or dance, but it doesn’t stop there. Embodiment practices can be (dare I say) ten times more helpful, healing and ground-breaking than talk therapy, courses, trainings or any relational program. And what’s even better is that you don’t need ANYTHING other than physical and spatial awareness in order to get embodied.
As long as you have a body, you are already killin’ it.
In episode 261, Madelyn Moon shares exactly what embodiment is and how it can help us reclaim our authentic power. By cultivating a daily embodiment practice, we’re able to release old trauma from the body and begin a healing journey back to ourselves. In this episode, Madelyn explains why embodiment is the foundation of her coaching practice, as well as her daily life.
