What you will learn:
In the Indigenous worldview, movement is not just a way to change your physical body. It is an all-encompassing medicine that helps to improve cognitive function, spiritual connectedness, emotional wellbeing, and overall health. Unfortunately, so many people today are subjected to unrealistic beauty standards, and we have been led to believe that the purpose of exercise is to change ourselves because we are not good enough.
This Elective will challenge that idea, offering insight and real-time exercises that help us to heal from any movement trauma, redefine our relationship to movement, and reconnect to a movement practice that is more healing than harmful. This course will also highlight the ways that movement can be incorporated into parenting, becoming a fun recreational activity for the entire family. Finally, this course will help the participant connect the dots between career, passion, social justice, and physical fitness.
About the instructor:
Chelsey Luger is a writer and wellness advocate, originally from the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. She was born and raised in North Dakota, and is now based in Arizona, where she runs an Indigenous wellness media platform called Well For Culture alongside her husband, Thosh. Their wellness work is rooted in Indigenous ancestral knowledge and focuses on reclaiming healthy lifestyles in Native American communities. They seek to change the mainstream narrative on Indigenous communities, focusing not on recent health disparities, but rather on the strong tradition of health that their people have carried on for thousands of years.
