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. As 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 a unique, refreshing 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, and physical and emotional healing occurs. As 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 block our energy, creativity and health. We train to free ourselves of the imprints that we hold within us, unintentionally and unconsciously. Thus, 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 put an end to ingrained patterns such as:
stiff sitting, restless waiting, tense brooding, unfocused learning, an angry urge to do better, an exhausting feeling of must-do and struggling to catch up.
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 or resiliently 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 up, lying down, sitting, moveing in space and more.
We encourage the body’s variety of movements. We break our own routines with it. Free, 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 succeed in becoming more and more 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 for everyone. The technique and the concept behind it is the same for everyone. I enjoy working with a diverse gorup and can only motivate everyone to go ahead and join in!
sMove! online training
We focus our attention on sensing our bodies 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! ON EARTH
ongoing weekly online movement training
- Feeling the earth as we sMoven! is a great way to bring us back to calmness, serenity and strength. We move and free the body, which leads us to our natural self-confidence.
In between the sessions you will receive an audio training that can be used throughout the week.
At the beginning of the corona crisis we introduced this online training. Since then, we meet almost every Saturday. In fact, it has turned out that this joining in from home – in your payjamas, after or before breakfast, with child and cat nearby – works great.
It replaces your workout alone, because we’re a motivated group coming together in that moment. By feeling ourselves and training the perception around us, we don’t have to travel anywhere at all!
The gaze is always briefly directed at the screen. Through the music and the instructions, the journey begins in your familiar environment, or even while on the road – an internet connection is now available almost everywhere.
No previous knowledge is necessary. The principle is simple – the learning is infinite;)
one time: 17€ (includes the Audio)
3 times: 40€

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.
