We’re working to create a more BODY-LITERATE society. Find out how our physical movements support or diminish the integrity of ourselves, our bodies and our society~!
Our program pairs SF Mission District Teens with certified movement instructors (yoga, pilates, martial arts, somatic educators) for 1 year of 1-on-1 private instruction to develop physical, emotional & mental stability, openness, agility, sensitivity & strength.
In the last 3 years there has been a national effort to get kids to be more physically active. Our physical, mental & emotional health is directly connected to how we move our bodies, but the principles of those connections are rarely taught in school, or beyond. Body-literacy is the study of those principles, & is a powerful tool in making a lasting change in the health & success of our youth. Read more..
“To use ourselves well by honoring the body’s design can only bring us closer to unlocking our collective potential.”
We Are=Movement is an organization dedicated to building a more body-literate society. By exposing the public to new ways of thinking, working within our schools, communities and organizations to teach a more integral understanding of how the body works, and bringing together minds from diverse disciplines to share and collaborate, We Are=Movement is working to positively change how we move.
