Discover a life of ease and joy through movement-based mindfulness

Mindfulness in Motion presents the Body in Mind Training programme: a truly groundbreaking new approach to mindfulness that is practised not by sitting still but by engaging with the moving body.

Written by neuroscientist and mindfulness expert Dr Tamara Russell, this is the only book on mindfulness to explain exactly why moving meditation is the best way of ‘rewiring’ the brain, teaching it to focus on the present moment. Her simple exercises are designed to be accessible to everyone, including those who can’t seem to find time for practice, and those who have struggled with traditional Zen-inspired mindfulness, with its emphasis on sitting meditation.

This book will guide you step by step through Dr Tamara Russell’s Body in Mind Training (BMT) programme, a unique approach to secular mindfulness that uses the moving body as the main meditation tool. The message is simple: getting out of your head and into your body is the key to a happier, healthier life. Chapter by chapter the book explores the five principles of movement-based mindfulness:

PAUSE In order to hear your body you have to slow down and listen to its voice – this is the starting point for BMT mindfulness practice.

INTENTION Setting your intention before you act can dramatically increase your ability to achieve what you want in life.

UNDERSTANDING ME It’s possible to tame your unruly ‘mental monkeys’ and create new neural pathways in your brain to help you to realize your full potential.

COMPASSION Facing and accepting your own difficult experiences can profoundly transform your relationship with life.

With easy-to-follow exercises, step-by-step photographs, clear brain diagrams and a host of practical tips, this book offers all the tools you need to start living in your body. With a little focus, determination and practice, you too can experience the amazing benefits of mindfulness!
Dr. Russell works with individuals and organizations advising on how to use mindfulness techniques to optimize performance and improve mental and physical well-being. She is the Director of the (currently virtual) Mindfulness Centre of Excellence in London, which has as its aim the evoluation of creative yet authentic mindfulness appli...
