Out of the head, into the body:
learning through movement
Get out of the old, constricting rut: With Stopping Movement Training we learn to break through ingrained patterns of movement and behaviour. We train our attention and perception, our breathing capacity, concentration and joy of movement are deepened. We detach ourselves from the demand for perfection. Lightness and joy take hold. sMove! is really fun!
What happens at sMove!
At Stopping Movement Training we train our body with different movements and at different speeds. Single or several areas up to the whole body are in use. We also find it easier to let go, breathe and feel ourselves. Stopping Movement Training is refreshing unique concept of group movement work, developed 25 years ago by the founder of the Grinberg Method® Avi Grinberg. As in the individual sessions, the focus is on getting out of the head and into the body.
Within defined limits, the body can increasingly free itself from blockages. Flexibility increases in all areas of our being, physical and emotional healing occurs. We train our attention and perception, our concentration and joy of movement is deepened.
What is behind sMove!
Behind the concept of sMove! – and the Grinberg Method® in general – is the release of patterns and personality aspects that limit us and stop our energy, creativity and health. We train to become free from imprints that we hold within us unintentionally and unconsciously. Therefore, this training promotes a freedom, openness and healing power that is naturally inherent in all of us as potential.
sMove! – fun and learning while moving
We shift our attention from daily stress towards the body and movement. Through the variety of movements we end ingrained patterns such as:
the immobile sitting, the fidgety waiting, the tense brooding, the unfocused learning, the angry wanting to do better, the energy-less having to do, the straining to get behind, the sacrificing to carry on, the uniform feeling …
We know all this, but we don’t need it 😉
If we reduce repetitions, our wealth of experience becomes greater, we experience more. We can react more flexibly to circumstances and have an easier time.
Stopping the movement breaks routines. It also makes us more aware of our body and the space around us.
Stopping Movement Training is based on movement with music
Within defined parameters like different areas of the body, different speeds, different sizes, we become more mobile. We also use balls, sticks, bands, ropes. We train standing, lying, sitting, in space and more.
We encourage the body’s variety of movements. We break our own routines with it. Free and flexible movements can develop naturally. Our energy level increases, we feel light and full of strength at the same time.
At first you might think that we only stop physically – however, we also stop thought loops – we increasingly succeed in being calm, concentrated and open.
Who can join sMove?
The sMove! classes are actually suitable for EVERYONE. Individual differences in fitness, range of motion, age or symptoms can be taken into account by everyone. The technique, the concept behind it is the same for everyone. Therefore, I am happy about a diverse group and can only motivate everyone to dare and join in.
sMove! online training
We focus our attention on feeling … and through a brief glance at the screen we also experience a group feeling. Since we don’t copy body positions or postures exactly, it’s enough to follow my instructions. One can follow a class well almost without looking at the screen. Online, learning takes place directly in our everyday living space. This often makes you notice the difference even more intensively.
sMove! into P R E S E N C E
The less routine the more presence! We use this in every movement in this training. While stopping and starting with new options we increase our energy, our curiosity and flexibility on all levels, physically and emotionally.
We train ourselves to exert as less effort as possible while we sMove! We connect with our bodies on a deeper level by quieting our mind and shifting to feeling the presence as a strong power, a calm energy, a balancing and healing state of being.
Being a body and being in the present is a natural state we have lost in the course of the day, the life and culturally in the last centuries. Our lifestyle does not support the state of presence at all. To be a healthy human being, to grow and to develop we choose to tap into body attention, to become free of limitations we do not make on purpose. We bring choices for stops into our training, gaining the most of starting new, finding our potential through body awareness.
Our bodies are able to find their way back to fulfill their potential. For this we enjoy to sMove! to different beats in the music, breathe and come online together at these specific times.
You can be a beginner, bodyworker or someone, who never knew that happiness is in your body and can be perceived and expand through this body attention training.

EXPERIENCES AT sMove! tRAINING:
For me, SMove is a devotion to life.
I arrive in my body. My body parts meet and I feel as a whole, grounded, cheerful and curious about life
Sonja, Berlin, Socialworker
I just feel totally comfortable in the body, as if every cell is reborn and I feel more “space” available. Without sMove! I wound not went through this “times” so well and easy, it makes me more relaxed, calmer, and more open for real enjoyment in life 🌻🍀
Gerlinde, Freiburg, Educater
👍👍👍 More mobile and simply also more cheerful to start the day! There would definitely be more to it: feeling younger, yes, sometimes even like a little child on the floor; rare experience at 63! 👍👍👍💃💃💃
Daniela, Allgäu, Teacher
By training with sMove I know now how to enjoy more in the here and now, I have more creativity and I can also slowly accept how I am … and how valuable I am.
