What is The Non-linear Movement Method®
The NLMM® is a trauma-informed movement practice where you become sensitized to the feelings of your body and where mind and body are invited to work in partnership so you can make better decisions in life.
In a nutshell, the practice helps you release stress and overwhelm, unite body, mind and heart and foster vitality and wellbeing. (To read about its benefits in more details scroll to the end of this page.)
This powerful embodiment modality has been developed by Michaela Boehm over the past 2 decades. The method is rooted in her early somatic training and has been developed and refined within her extensive clinical experience working within a demographic with severe trauma, addiction and personality disorders. She then further refined and adapted it for a broader use in her experiential workshops, as a means of connecting students with their inner landscape, exploring, and releasing physical contractions, withholds and emotional closures.
What to expect from a NLMM® Session
A "no force/no imposition“ somatic modality
ACCESSIBLE TO ANYONE
NLMM® is specifically designed as a “no force/no imposition“ somatic modality which means that apart from a few basic guidelines and prompts, you won’t be instructed on how to move your body. Neither will I tell you what you should feel or experience. It can be practiced by anyone regardless of physical health, ability, fitness level or age.
This is your time for "interoception" the ability to feel what is “inside” and become more body aware.
It is facilitated on a mat or blanket. You will dress similar to a yoga or dance class, in comfortable, non-restrictive clothing.
I have truly fallen in love with this empowering embodiment practice during my certified teacher training with Michaela Boehm & Steve James and hope it will benefit you as much as it benefits me.

Benefits of The Non-linear Movement Method®
Regulates the Nervous System
The demands of modern life create stress and tension in the body and an overactive mind. NLMM encourages the identifying and unwinding of patterns of contraction. Through gentle, non-force movements bodily tension and underlying mental loops are relieved. The result is a systematic, self-guided unburdening of the nervous system.
Processes and Identifies Emotions
As the body unwinds and the mind relaxes its pressured pace, the emotions associated with these contractive patterns become apparent and can be dissolved through the movement. You can note recurring emotional loops for further processing and at the same time allow emotions to simply arise and let go.
Releases Trauma Patterns into Flow
One of the common results of traumatic experience (fresh and old alike) is “freeze”, a state in which body, mind and emotions are stuck in a state of numbness. Often “freeze” is falsely perceived as a feeling of “calm/nothing”, which results in an inability to release the experience and ease the bodily patterns of hold. NLMM facilitates a continued movement, which gently opens the freeze pattern and allows for recognition and release of the underlying bodily and emotional patterns.
Unites Mind and Body in Intimacy with Physical Sensation
Through continued engagement with release of contraction and facilitation of emotional awareness, the ingrained patterns become both more apparent and less pronounced. Over time, physical sensation can be more fully engaged with, and the acceptance as well as tolerance of all sensation increases. Intimacy with whatever is present is possible. Body, Emotion and Mind can align to support an integrated approach to feeling and understanding existing behavioral patterning.
Creates High Bodily Responsiveness
NLMM educates the body how to release and process contractions, stress and emotional tension while at the same time sensitizing you to your internal landscape. This is called “Interoception”, the ability to feel what is “inside”. Via the body we become highly attuned to all sensations and can note, react or release fluidly and without having to attend to traumatic or suppressed backlog.
Opens Access to Bodily Wisdom
By putting emphasis on movement and circumventing the analytical mind and loops of tense thinking the natural intelligence of our bodies is accessed. Through gentle guidance the mechanisms of “freeze” and refusal to feel are being loosened and our innate bodily wisdom can create the necessary actions and releases.
Awakens Vital Energy and Sensual Sensation
As tension, contraction, and emotion are being released, the body becomes sensitized and we are able to feel deeper. One of the marked results of this sensitization is an ability to feel increased pleasure and well being. Participants report an increased ability to connect through their body, both with themselves and others.
