An experiential movement method developed by Romanie Bosman

Your body as a resonating instrument

Would you like to feel more energetic, more balanced? Are you ready to deeply connect with yourself, your body and the world around you? Your body is a powerful source of knowledge. IMS helps you effectively tap into it.

What is the IMS movement method?

IMS is an experience-oriented movement method, developed to help you (re)connect with yourself, your natural movements and the world around you.

The method rests on three principles which strengthen your body’s capacity as a resonating instrument: grounding, sound/breath (vocalisation) and movement.

With IMS, you can focus on and work safely towards a state of deep ‘embodied listening’, in which the body naturally adapts itself, is able to freely regulate/restore itself and allows for the unrestrained development of intrinsic qualities/talents.

How does the IMS method work?

The IMS movement method is based on three principles:

  • Grounding
  • Sound/breath (vocalisation)
  • Movement

In several sessions, we will activate the self-regulating and self-healing power of your body on the basis of these principles. Your body offers a wealth of knowledge. This source you will experience and use during this process. By consciously listening to your body, by following your movement impulses and by expressing what’s going on inside of you via movement, you allow your body to regulate itself from within. Doing this will increase your balance and leave you feeling relaxed and energised.

Together we will work towards your natural state of physical and mental balance. During each session we will focus on what you are going through – in the here and now. By regulating your system from within using the IMS method you become more connected with yourself and your environment (the world around you). In addition, you allow yourself to fully experience and utilise your qualities and talents.

The IMS movement method allows you to recognise, acknowledge and further develop your talents.

This is what the IMS method can do for you

The IMS movement method nourishes, heals and supports you: it helps to relieve tension and remove blockages, restore the harmonious balance in your body and mind, and live a fuller life.

Once you know how to apply the IMS movement method, you will be able to put it into practice whenever and wherever you want. After all, you have your instrument, your body, with you at all times, which is basically all you need to maintain your health, improve your vitality and sense of well-being, feel more relaxed, balanced and have more fun in life.

IMS is an exceptionally efficient instrument if you

  • want to escape your thoughts and mindfully experience (from) your body
  • want to improve your quality of life in a playful and light-hearted way
  • want to experience more relaxation, fun, resilience, vitality, harmony and balance in your life
  • want to tackle your well-being and health, whether proactively or not
  • want to listen to what your body is telling you/seek more insight into what it is trying to tell you
  • want to tap into your body’s wisdom/want to unlock the knowledge stored in your body and use it to make the most of your life
  • want to integrate mindfulness and action in your personal daily practice
