Kristi: Hello everyone, Kristi Oen here and I’m with Ellie.
Kristi: This is Ellie Peterson and I am so excited to be with her. We have a special surprise for you today. Ellie please tell everyone a little bit about who you are.
Ellie: I’m Ellie Peterson and I’ve created a technique called Meditative Movements. The reason I created it was because it helped me be healthier and happier.
Kristi: That’s awesome! I’m really excited about her meditative movements because it combines some of the things that I love; meditation and movements. It’s not something I actually used when I was getting healthier but I’m excited to try it and I’m sure other people will really enjoy it. What exactly are meditative movements?
Ellie: What is it? Well, its a process that you use with physical movements. In our body, we hold stored energies, some that are painful. This is an opportunity to really feel being in your body. I know if you have chronic pain, that might be a harder thing to do.
It also then focuses on the breath because the mind will perceive things that are going on so you focus on the breath really knowing how to deeply breathe knowing that life really wants you to be here.
Then we use spoken affirmation because our mind can get into a repetitive thought process that actually makes our illness be worse than it really this.
This is a way to help you snap out and redirect I think is a great word.
Kristi: I think it’s really great because I do mind, body and soul in my program. Mind which is similar to the positive affirmations which are very powerful, soul you have the meditative type movements, and moving which is getting your body involved. It really encompasses everything I’m doing…differently…but very complimentary which is amazing. So how do you know this works?
