Movement Therapy

Movement inspires. It boosts creativity, puts things into motion and perspective, and it triggers all kinds of beneficial processes in your body and brain. Movement is at the core of our approach to well-being training. Yes, training – as we can actually train our minds to go beyond habitual ways of thinking, and teach our bodies to move in a healthier way.

When we start training, the first thing that changes is actually our brain. Even though your body benefits from the start too – remember, we cannot separate the body from the mind – but when it comes to increasing strength, the change actually starts in the brain before you grow muscles, literally. Those cognitive changes do actually make you stronger and fitter right from the beginning.

Mahalo Moves offers full body and mind, well-being training. With certifications and 6+ years of professional experience in teaching yoga, Pilates, strength training, cardiovascular training, and personal training, we create tailor-made programmes based on the goals and preferences of clients. We work one-on-one, duos, and groups: creating the right setting and a well-rounded programme. 

Interested in movement-based team-building sessions? That’s possible too! Movement is a great tool to build great teams, so get in touch to express your goals. 

How Can Movement Be Therapeutic & Life Changing?


  1. Because of neural adaptations: strength training leads to neural adaptations which improve motor unit recruitment and coordination. Practically, this means that our brain become more efficient in managing muscle contraction, which leads to increased strength without significant muscle growth during the first weeks of training
  2. Skills improve: practice makes perfect, right? If you repeat certain motions, your proficiency and technique improve, as you learn to do the movements more efficiently every time. This leads to a better activation of the muscles that you want to contract and more fluid movements. 
  3. Muscle coordination improves: training improves the coordination between the brain, muscle groups and joints. Your body becomes better at recruiting a higher percentage of muscle fibers within a muscle group, and this increased activation can lead to improved strength, coordination, and efficiency. 

Movement changes your mind ánd your body, as the brain directly affects the body as well, of course. It’s a win-win situation. It boosts your brain function and mental health whilst improving your hormonal, muscular, respiratory, and skeletal systems – and more things than you can maybe imagine right now.
