About the Work

The Art of Moving Well is about providing people like you with practical tools, strategies and insights to be more comfortable in your body, to move more easily, and to be more able to do the things you would like to do in the world.

See if you recognize yourself in one of these groups:

  • Basically healthy and in good shape. You’d like to find a little more ease and cultivate good alignment and movement habits now so that you can continue to enjoy your favorite sports for many more years.
  • In chronic pain or limited by an accident or illness. You’d like some strategies for how you can be more active without overdoing it. And you’d like some self-care techniques for when pain flares up.
  • Accumulating aches and pains usually attributed to aging. You’d like to set yourself on a course to remain comfortable and active for a few more decades.

Or, if you’ve ever though you would just like to feel a little more comfortable in your own skin…

…You’re in the RIGHT place!

Surprisingly, pain isn’t usually cause by what you do, but how you do it. Small adjustments can make a HUGE difference.

This work meets YOU where you are and uses small movement changes to increase your ability to remain comfortable throughout your life.

 

About Kim Thompson

Welcome! My name is Kim Thompson and I’m glad you are here.

If you are gathering aches and pains as you age — or if you are concerned that you might start, then you will love what you are going to learn on this site.

That’s because I make moving well less complicated and more reachable.

Here’s a little about me:

As a child, I enjoyed physical activities — outdoor games, dance, then Tai Chi and Aikido. In early adulthood, a minor vehicle accident left me with ten years of low back and neck pain. I tried the usual rounds of health professionals, but still had pain. When regular Yoga classes finally brought relief, I began extensive professional training to help me and you and others overcome physical discomfort and limitations through movement.

I have trained in Yoga, Feldenkrais®, Bones for Life®, Sounder Sleep™, CranioSacral Therapy, Balance, Spacial Dynamics®, and more. I draw from these movement modalities to meet the needs of individual clients and students in group classes. Participants in my classes are like me: frustrated by daily aches and pains, tired of having to say no to invitations that involve physical activity because you’re not sure you’re up to it. I provide practical information that is presented clearly so you leave with skills you can implement right away in daily life.

I teach weekly classes for the City of Gaithersburg Recreation Department. Since 2007, I have taught morning movement classes at Wise Traditions, the annual conference of the Weston A. Price Foundation.
