Body In Balance
When standing, is it more comfortable to lean on one leg?
Do you tend to sway forwards, backwards or to one side? (try with your eyes closed)
With your feet shoulders width apart, move only your pelvis in a large circle. Do you notice any differences from side to side, front to back? Try the other direction
Raise both arms straight up, is one hand higher than the other? (take a look in the mirror)
Sit on a stable surface with your feet dangling above the floor. Do you sit evenly on both ‘sitting’ bones?
Take a slow, deep breath in. Is there movement and expansion throughout your whole ribcage? The front, sides and back? How does it feel?
Cross your arms over your chest and give yourself a hug. Turn your upper body to the right and then to the left. Do you move the same distance on each side?
Now try turning your head in both directions. Any difference?
It’s all connected. A problem in one area will affect the rest.
A balanced body keeps the burden of undue pressure and irritation from joints, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs.
When in harmony, fluids can flow freely, and the body is able to support our health and well-being effortlessly.
A body in balance is a joy to inhabit. A happy home for our spirit and soul!
