Movement education allows you to experience how your body functions when it is free from restriction. It involves an assessment of the range of motion of your joints, noting where you experience limitation. You then map areas of your body where you may have less sensation and less capacity for movement, perhaps where you have shut out pain signals for some time. A series of exercises will help you move with greater awareness of your true size, structure and function.
You will find the posture you hold when you feel the most expanded, free, enthusiastic, full of joy. You will also find the posture you hold when you feel the most limited, emotionally or physically. As you move in stages between these postures, you may find that feelings and beliefs arise. Perhaps these have limited you in the past. The expansion of the conscious capacity for variability in movement gives you more choice in the present. You can then choose new postural shapes as responses to events in life, rather than old patterns of reaction.
As you progress, you wake up out of Sensory Motor Amnesia (Thomas Hanna), with the use of VMCE, Voluntary Muscular and Cortical Effort (Stanley Keleman). This work owes a tribute to these two giants. And also to Barbara Conable, and her Body Mapping from Alexander Technique, as well as another brilliant teacher who prefers to remain anonymous.
