I was reflecting on the movement and strength work I've been doing and it's dawned in me that it started off as the desire to alleviate knee pain, but has naturally evolved into something wholly different and more profound. It strikes me that when approached consciously movement work is really a journey of the self discovery of the intersection of mind and body. There are the conventional fitness elements of strengthening, and expanding range of motion through stretching and movement patterns, but there's simultaneously a deeper internal process of surrendering body tension, letting go, and passing artificial psychological barriers. All of this has lead to greater intelligence and understanding of how my body is designed to support itself and move.
Thank you for being my guide through this process! It's truly a labor of love for me the student as it clearly is for you the teacher.
