Our bodies are meant to move.
They are meant to stand up, sit down, lift, walk, run, dance.
This idea that we’re meant to sit in front of screens all day, or sit behind a school desk, or stand in one place all day doing the same task; when you look at our bodies, this doesn’t make sense.
And thus in the modern world, in many places epseicaly where we drive in cars to get from place to place, or we are in urban office where we sit all day, it’s hard to get the movement we need.
If you can begin a movement practice that is natural and freeing: not going to a class where everyone does the same thing, but going for a walk, or a run, where you determine the pace and stride, you will find extraordinary benefit.
Such as ecstatic dancing, where you determine how you will move, and when. Or swimming, where the entire body is enganged and you detiemrin, again, the moments you will do. Or walking, where it is you and gravity, one step after another.
This helps to create the experience you body needs: free moment that is not routine or overly organized. Free moment, in which you must connect with nature around you: the road ,the path, the water, the dance floor, and work with gravity and elements, to find your way.
Instead of going to yoga class, or dance class, or the gym, or any place where there are a lot of people doing the same thing, consider striking out on your own, and experiencing free movement.
Free movement allows your body to release in a natural way, the way you moved when you were a child. It also unlocks your emotions and frees your mind. Also as you did, when you were a child.
