I feel this video is a GREAT example of two minds approaching one concept (MOVEMENT)
from very different perspectives. As a physiotherapist, pilates instructor, postural neurologist, etc I started with the Huberman focus on the "How" many years ago.
Thankfully, through Feldenkrais, I became aware of the "WHY" and the "Embodied Experience" of Movement.
As Ido Portal so eloquently shares -
We need more education that we are living movement in every moment -
Even at rest we are moving
I challenge my mechanical minded physiotherapy colleagues to truly reflect on why we are so passionate about MOVEMENT. It's not just about pain reduction, it's about restoring people to the JOY that is Movement. Free Thinking, Free Feeling, Free breathing.
This video discussion invites those in the movement re-education space to fully embody their own movement experience. Intellectual Knowing and Embodied Experience are two very different beasts. I certainly know I became a better teacher ( ? and perhaps person) once I fully let go into the expansiveness that is Movement. It is why I hate EXERCISE SHEETS so much.
My business is called Movement Solutions for a very strong reason.
Movement of thought, Movement of Emotions, Movement of Feelings.... we are beyond the traditional physiotherapy clinic and that pleases me.
My favourite Ido Portal Reflections -
We are a body with a brain not a brain with a body
There is no pure thought no pure movement - everything is integrated and the wholeness is the movement
And this -
Thinking about movement
FEELING the colours and textures of movement
And then the action of movement - the how
Braided together all 3 into an experience of energy in motion
And this -
Movements are the content
MOVEMENT is the container
Do not limit the mind with how you engage in the practice of movement
And this is mine -
Squats planks lunges
Playfulness, spine, breathe, emotions, curiosity,
Stretch, burn, fatigue, spring,
And perhaps all of it is BORING if movement is not your passion ! ?
Let me know.
