Embody is the website of Jess Glenny, movement teacher, facilitator, therapist, and writer about the moving body. I am based in south-east London and also work online. I am Autistic and welcome neurodivergent people to my movement spaces.
Moving body practices are ways of putting all of ourselves into motion. Through moving and witnessing, we create opportunities for what our body knows (but our mind may not yet be conscious of) to surface into awareness. By being present with ourselves in this fluid way, we are able to become gradually more aligned with our experience in each moment, and so live with increasing spontaneity, fulness and meaning. These practices are an invitation into the unexplored spaces of ourselves, a practical tool for living, a mystical path, a way to play.
“In my wanderings I have visited shrines and many other places of pilgrimage,
but I have not seen a shrine as blissful
as my own body.”—Saraha
