Tuesday’s class were interested to learn about proprioception this week. This is the awareness of your body and movement in space. We have neurons in our joints and muscles that tell us how they are positioned and what they are doing.
Proprioception is what is at work when you are in warrior II and can’t see what you’re back arm is doing, but you can maintain it’s position at shoulder height. When you are doing the chair twist with one leg up on the chair seat with your body turned towards the wall you can use your proprioception skills to keep the knee straight forward and not rolling in towards the wall as you turn.
Proprioception is a useful movement/bodywork skill. Like any other skill it can be developed with practice.
