2017 New book "Ode to Sensation: Connecting Movement, Fascia and Experience."
We seldom notice “movement” itself. Often it is only when we attempt to ‘move’ in a specific way that we become aware of the body’s limitation, imbalances and pain. It is largely the ‘unconscious’ movement patterns (sitting posture, walking gait, repetitive movement for work or single sport activity) or lack thereof that set us in the “shape” that we are.
The modern ‘illness’ of sedentary lifestyle has given rise to many movement-based exercises as counter measure. e.g. aerobics, Pilates, gym workout, yoga, and the variety of dance-based exercise. However, we are moving as we go about our daily lives. In fact, it is this largely ‘unconscious’ movement patterns that set us in the “shape” that we are currently. Furthermore, aging is essentially the decline of the quality of the range of our movement, which is at its core, the body’s relationship to gravity.
“Fitness” of body is not just how strong or flexible you are doing aerobics, yoga or sports. By doing certain ‘exercises’ repeatedly, certain muscles/joints will become overly used and strained. It will cause imbalances and pain as well as distort how you sit, walk and even sleep.
In the long run, a balanced physical structure can only be achieved by engaging in a balance of various movements, collectively. That includes a good proper alignment in the way you conduct your work and chores, sit, walk and of course, exercise.
Whether you want to learn to safely retrain the injured muscles post trauma recovery, strengthen the core/back muscles, tone the pelvic floor after childbirth, or to lose weight and become fit, it is important to first understand the specific ways you move in daily activities. In other words, what “shape” you are carrying now.
In addition, nutrition and the health of your physical structure form a “cause-and-effect” flow of process. Optimal nutrition including the proper functioning of toxin elimination mechanism is part and parcel of achieving your goals effectively and productively, be it regaining joint mobility or reducing muscle achiness or increasing your sport performance.
