The intelligent act of walking is something most people don’t think about until it becomes a problem. Luckily my next workshop, Walking Is Controlled Falling, will give you the opportunity to explore the intricate details of the act of efficient walking.
It is easy to develop into a habitual, non-thinking walker due to modern society. Walking in the material world doesn’t require a person to think, sense, feel & move in the same way that nature’s world requires. Modern man’s environment hinders his growth while mother nature’s environment nurtures it.
Imagine a person hiking on rocky terrain looking down and texting on their phone. I hope this image makes you laugh and realize that you can continue to learn and explore in many other ways!
“The opportunity to improve your posture occurs not when you are standing still, motionless in the center, but when activity is taking place, when you have a biological necessity to regenerate your skill for adjustability, and you find equilibrium in all other positions which take you away from the perfect center.” ~Ruthy Alon, Feldenkrais Trainer
I hope this inspires you to challenge yourself and explore your world through a different perspective!
