100 (okay, actually 196) Words: Explore from Core

Move more in the core to free energy for extremities – my connection with the world.

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.
