Posture, Movement & Attitude

Change the Issues with the Tissues – Posture, Movement & Attitude

Take a look around at the people surrounding you.  Some look happy, energized while others look sad, hidden or even beaten down.   What is it that telegraphs their attitude?   

Posture, facial expressions, movement, and even more if you are interacting with them.

The people that are down, may feel mentally stuck and they are probably physically stuck with sticky fascia and unhappy joints.   

When working with people to move, starting slowly lets them work on static control and focus.  Exercises that address patterns and are “self limiting” can create change in patterns and are generally considered as corrective or functional.

With planned progressions, results are tangible and easily understood.  Little victories based on clear direction will improve mental outlook at the same time that you are improving physical performance.  Now the cycle is swinging in your favor and you can capitalize.   You feel better, you think better of yourself, you are better. 

Please take a look at the excerpt below and follow up when I explain how well Yoga and Kettlebells work so well together in changing, reinforcing and maintaining movement and mental patterns.

 

According to Thomas Myers in an interview with Eva Norlyk Smith, Ph.D …”the people who developed yoga recognized was that in order to change the person — not just to change the chemistry or to change the amount of strength that you have or your readiness to dive off a diving board — but to really change the person that you are, to change the issues in the tissues, then you really have to make a deep change in the pattern of your body.”

Now that pattern is in the nervous system, that pattern is in the muscular system, that pattern is in the chemistry, that pattern is in the fascia. But once the pattern is lodged in the fascia, you have to address it at the level of fascia for it to release.

 If you change your mind or you change your nervous system or even if you change your movement patterns, you’re working against this very slow moving, steady tissue of the fascia. But if you change that fascia, then it’s easier to change the nervous system and the circulatory system on top of that. Conversely, if you don’t get in there and make that change, you end up also with what I call the “Woody Allen Syndrome” — you understand more and more and more about why you cannot change. To have a greater understanding about why you can’t change misses the point. The point is to change.”   Fascia Running
