Mia (not real name) attended the last workshops series on how to find our graceful, strong body. And she shared with us what she had discovered after the workshop we did on walking. She loves to walk her dog however, her right hip was always getting her attention because it was so painful.
When we started to look at how the freedom in her ankle related to the freedom in her hip; a light went off in her awareness and she could now make a choice on how she was walking and let her ankles be easy and her hip pain subsided. She said, “I know I will have to be more attentive to changing my patterns of walking. This is a practice I can explore on my own.
BALANCE – an even distribution of weight so there can be suspension or poise to remain upright. I think of this when I pause and notice if my feet are on the ground and under the weight of my body. Can we consciously be aware of the balance of our bodies? Sunday morning pondering!
