We're not another studio class to rush in and out of.
Our one-of-a-kind experiences and revolutionary trainings center presence, pleasure and permission to re-define your relationship with your body and movement so you can navigate your ever changing energy and emotions with ease. We believe the future of movement is in liberating the body, not conditioning it.
We combine body based coaching and depth based movement in a supportive space held by powerful femmes so you can...
Explore your mess, break open and break free of diet and fitness culture
Challenge your limits while celebrating your body in a low-impact way suitable for women in all bodies of all ages, stages and abilities.
— Erika Linae Nimry
"Slow the pace.
Free the tension.
Feel your way."
You can't get it wrong. Give yourself permission to honor and respect your body's ever changing energy and emotions. There's not right way - only your way.
Start prioritizing yourself guilt free. Movement doesn't have to be productive. Pleasure doesn't have to be earned. Make room for possibility.
Check in rather than check out. The only place we feel is in the body and the only time we're in the body is in the moment. This is about being over doing.

move & be moved
The Movement was my own liberation I didn't know I needed. It feeds my fierce curiosity, fuels my creativity, allows me to dig deep, find my strength, feel free and release. I'm a better partner, professional and friend when I'm in my body, respecting my energy and able to make room for my desires.
It healed my relationship with my body and movement, which was incredibly unhealthy for years. As an independent woman, I pushed through and wore my exhaustion with pride. It was never enough, always chasing a horizon.
I created The Movement to change an industry perpetuating the conditioning of women and their bodies. I saw that coaching needed to go beyond talking and movement beyond fitness. Bridging these two worlds formed a practice heavily influenced by my love of dance and somatic awareness that's more powerful than I ever could've imagined.
I want women to know they aren't broken - the wellness world is. They don't have to want or be it all. That productivity and exhaustion don't validate your worth. That you're a cyclical being worthy of celebrating and rest is no reward.
I no longer feel the need to justify moving at my own pace or apologize for my soulful, sassy ways. I've learned to hold space for my mess and to be held in it too. And I relish that I get to do the same for women worldwide.
Creator - Founder - Creative director
The Movement has taught me how to be kind, curious and accepting of who I am, instead of always striving to be who I think I should be.
It reminds me I'm vibrant, strong and determined but that it can't be accessed in a healthy way if I don't allow myself to slow down and act on what I truly desire. I've learned there's never been anything wrong with me - my energy ebbs and flows and I'll listen to what I need - with no apologies.
I had to be a part of The Movement because after years in the fitness industry, I was sick of contributing to the idea a woman's body needs to be changed to be better. Of seeing women of all sizes, ages and abilities feeling less than, thinking doing more or burning out in the process was the solution to a happier life.
The Movement has changed the way I approach all of the class styles I teach.
Facilitating TM experiences allows me to present movement in the way that I've always seen it - as a way of feeling freedom in your body, witnessing its strength, releasing emotional tension and having a little fun with an inviting community.
I want women to step back into fitness with a very different perspective and healthy relationship with it.
