A Simple Twist of Fate? Or Intentional Posture? Your Choice. Posture without strain depends on the fluidity of your spine. If tight or stiff, restriction makes muscles short, compressing your spine. If allowed to continue for years, the gradual compression of the spine leads to faulty posture which is only exacerbated by sitting for long periods. Discover a mindful approach to reversing the aging process! It occurs in a soothing environment of calm that stimulates the restorative functions of the autonomic nervous system.
Learn to find ways around the pain, or through the pain to the new sense of potency that lies beyond it. Health professionals who offer rehabilitation after injury or surgery do a great job “putting you back together.” But often, the insurance doesn't cover enough sessions. It leaves you at the doorstep of returning to your normal activity level. How can you continue to get better on your own? What can you do to regain mobility without being overwhelmed? This is the means you have been seeking to easily bridge that gap.
Living in Fight or Flight? Relax. It's actually safer to be at the ready but loose. Tension makes you UNready! Resolve the tension. There is no release from a state of emergency unless you intervene intentionally. Neurologically, the body perpetuates the stress response until it feels safe. The Endocrine System has pumped your body full of stress hormones that inhibit relaxation and important things like digestion, immunity and sleep. This means that without doing something to release all that stress, the stress hormones linger long after they are needed.
Convinced Your Abdominals Are Weak? It's much more likely that you have sensory amnesia. You have been tuning out for so long that you can't really feel your belly any more. Sensory amnesia is a result of sitting for hours at work, tuning yourself out because what you have to get done becomes more important than how you are feeling. Therein lies the rub. If you fall into the unconscious habit of subjugating the quality of your life to the quality of your job, the result is a gradual disconnect with your physical mobility. If you are tired of feeling substantially different than you used to and would like to wake up feeling strong and limber, this is a class you won't want to miss.
The modern lifestyle promotes a poor sense of stability through the structure of your body. When you get dressed in the morning, if you are wearing pants, you put them on one at a time. The leg you stand on is the stronger leg - most people would say - the other leg is more coordinated. Address the sense that your leg muscles feel as if they might give out or your hip feels as if it doesn't support you. What if it's not actually muscle weakness? What if that's a myth? What if it's a matter of HOW your organize yourself over your leg? The word understanding indicates a bodily connection to being upright that is functional. Functional means safe, stable, powerful.
"Without limitation, the neck should turn with a smoothness unequaled by the most perfect man-made mechanism". The head, where all the teleceptors are located - eyes, ears, nostrils, and mouth - turns right and left with almost every movement, attending to changes in the space around us. When the eyes move in the direction of the head’s rotation, the reflected turning of the head over the neck should be gliding and easy. By working with the teleceptors in a mindful way that ignites a renewal of the lost sensitivity of childhood, you, too, can regain mobility and a sense that the head is as if floating over the top of the spine. This is one of the best ways to improve function after even a series of whiplash injuries.
