6. Why is combining movement with meditation and mindfulness important?
Humans evolved moving with a mindful intention during daily tasks, hunting and gathering, as well as exploring with curiosity their surroundings. Many of today’s modern exercise formats have us distracted in contrived environments and overly concerned with the measurement of superfluous data. At ALTYOU we emphasize natural movement on our feet with a variety of multifaceted movement sequences that require concentration and intention.
