I have been incorporating the Bones For Life movements into classes this week. We practised exercises for spinal alignment, bunions, building bone density, walking and getting out of a car – legs together, use a plastic bag so you can swivel. Helps protect the hips.
Had some interesting feedback from students. In the workshop on Sunday Mary Wyevill encouraged us to perform the movements with a ‘walking rhythm’. It is our natural rhythm. Mary explained that the reason we can get so tired in museums or art galleries is that we are moving slowly- unnaturally, without rhythm.
One student shared the fact that she had been on the People’s Vote march at the weekend, and such had been the volume and press of people that they’d had to walk incredibly slowly. She said she felt so stiff the next day. Great to have such a topical example to a teaching point.
