Safe to Move
Feeling Safe to move into Exercise as you Recover from Chronic Illness and Reclaim your Energy and Aliveness
Join us for our fourth experiential fall workshop! Building up a sense of enough safety to move again, and to expand exercise in a paced way, is key to recovering your health and wellbeing. Yet you may feel nervous about this new level of movement, and if so, you’re not alone. It’s common to have fears about what you’re ready for, if you might overdo it and make yourself worse. For some of you, an unbalanced approach to exercise and movement may have even been one of the reasons you got sick in the first place. It’s natural for there to be fear involved as you expand your physical capacity again.
In this session we’ll explore building up movement in a safe and sustainable way, in a way that is in tune with where you are on the journey of recovery, to support you to trust yourself as you build your physical capacity again. Come whether you are bedbound and wanting to feel safe to gently move your body, or if you are fully recovered and wanting to feel safe to run or cycle again.
This 90 minute coaching call will take place on 12th December 2023
9am PT/ 12pm ET/ 5pm GMT
In this session we’ll explore building up movement in a safe and sustainable way, that is in tune with where you are on the journey of recovery. This session will include:
Working effectively with fear through exploring the neuro-biology of resistance and poly-vagal theory to help dissolve obstacles to exercise
How to work with your achiever part, celebrating each step along the way and ensuring you are expanding exercise in a paced and sustainable way
Yoga postures with breaks in between to explore and retrain any fears triggered
Sharing and Q and A time
All bodies are welcome ~ whether you’re bedbound and just opening up to gentle movements and whether you’re fully recovered and ready to run and work out again!
Come as you are, in bed, chair, on your yoga mat, on your living room floor!
We are looking forward to being with you for this fourth session of our 2023 Autumn Cocoon Series. You are welcome to join us for any or all of the Cocoon Series.
Previous Participants have said:
“That’s so powerful as an exercise. I felt like I had a big energy shift despite having felt a bit uncertain about this practice, the mirroring & witnessing was an amazing experience, I feel like I really connected with my practice partner and think many of us could benefit from making this a regular practice!”
“I’m going to try and do this every day – it’s been really empowering.”
“My key takeaway is to titrate the work…reminded of a quote I love ‘little by little a little becomes a lot’“
“I learn so much from you two! You co-lead well together. Very good workshop!”
“Thank you so much for this workshop. Your guidance, caring and wisdom was so very helpful and will continue to be with the recording. And it was so good to be with you all and everyone who participated.”
Autumn 2023 Cocoon Series
As we move through autumn towards winter, our energies naturally draw inwards. Our autumn series of workshops focuses on what we need to foster an internal sense of safety so that we can take our place in the world when called to. From this safe place, we can joyfully reach out to community, knowing we are held, and we can express ourselves authentically.
We welcome you to join us for as much of our autumn series as you would like.
We begin with the powerful energy of anger. Healthy anger helps us to understand and express the boundaries that help create our cocoon.
We continue with Growing in Wellness and Joy, experiencing safety in community, relationships, and expressing oneself.
We gather together for Office Hours so you can receive support, ask questions and share your experiences.
We conclude with Safe to Move supporting you to cultivate a sense of safety and ‘heldness’ as you express yourself through movement.

Moon and Frances have been working in the healing arts for decades and co-direct The Women's Wellness Circle together supporting women on a healing journey to reclaim joy, aliveness and power.
I have participated in many of Frances and Moon’s workshops, and I always come away with deeper insight into myself, and more compassionate towards the parts of me that need it the most. Thank you so much for the beautiful work you do!”
~ Cindy, Graduate of 9 Month Programme
“Frances and Moon have a wealth of experience and practices to share. They are truly compassionate, sensitive, embodied and insightful guides and I am so grateful for all the support that they have given me. During the 9 months I had the sense of being profoundly held and accepted in all that I am, which has strengthened my capacity to embrace all parts of myself. The PPP vessel was a safe space for meeting and working with the trauma and limiting beliefs that came up for me around purpose, power and pleasure. I was able to start retrieving parts of myself that I thought were lost or inaccessible. I have taken so much from the experience. It was a deep dive that I feel will ripple out for some time as I continue to reclaim my Feminine Power.”
