Five sensations of fitness (flexibility, strength, mobility, agility and stability) in pelvis, chest, head and spine:
Flexibility: Energy moving out
Spine moves in 6 directions: left, right, front, back, and spiral left / right. More spine flexibility: breathe more deeply.
Strength: Energy Moving In
Core muscles run around the body. Balance and extension (i.e., martial arts kicks, punches, blocks) in all directions creates core strength – especially when sounding! More core strength: clarity, boundaries, tell the truth.
Mobility: Energy in Constant Motion
Each vertebra moves independently. Mobilize core with spinal rolls and undulations, pelvic circles, and eye movement. Spine mobility: can adjust and flow with present moment.
Agility: Quick Stops & Starts
Hip bumps for pelvis and lumbar spine. Chest isolations for thoracic. Head and Eye for the neck. More core agility: adjust quickly and precisely for ease and power.
Stability: Energy Moving from Center out in all Directions
More stability: more relaxed and ready to move into any of the sensations with ease.
Sense five sensations in your core and how that affects your connection with yourself, others and the world.
