2016, Series 1, Week 6 - The Understanding Grows

It can seem like a lot to take in as we look to move more effectively, but if you are patient and consistent in your practice - a deeper understanding will take root and grow.

 You can attend a weekend at a music festival and not get a sore back. Take every single opportunity out there to move around, stretch, walk, reach - sit better and move more while seated too. When we did sit in chairs we used jackets and whatever else was available to put on the seat so  we could roll our hips forward.

Each week in classes I add another piece and we see how it fits in with the whole. I don't expect we are all going to download everything at once, but I know that if we keep at it, it does get easier. When someone tells me they sorted out their own achey back with the recognition they had spent the night before in high heels - and so applied the logic of our work to getting out of that pain cycle - I know we are winning. I hear variations on that theme all the time - as you become more self-aware your capacity to self-correct improves hugely (it also helps us to understand why it might be time to let the heels go).

This work is all about empowering you to be able to take care of yourself now and into the future. You can take on a little or you can take on the whole kit and kaboodle. There is a huge amount of free information available at the Nutritious Movement website, or you can purchase one of the many downloadable classes or books. If you prefer an actual DVD then this is a great place to start.

 This single DVD is for the entire body, with the exercises arranged in more of a 'workout' style. This "once-a-day" program contains 18 exercises broken into two routines, five posture makeover tips, and bonus material.

Above all else listen to your body. If something is aching you have a tool kit - use it! The very first time you tweak a movement or stretch, and find that the ache has gone - is a pretty wonderful one. And it can be habit forming (in a good way!)

 Sorry neighbours. A lady asked me about my chair with all the stuff I had in the bottom of it so I could forward tilt my pelvis. I started to explain it to her and she glazed right over. It's a gift I tell you, a gift!
