My work integrating yoga and massage therapy is focused on freeing the body through attunement to classic neutral posture.
After many years of study, I have developed a method of attaining classic neutral posture.
There are natural physics involved in how your body handles the energy of gravity, and how your body is able to move through space with a minimum of effort. This is important in health, wellness, performance, yoga, dance, and all sports.
The grand design of neutral posture shows what these physics are, in the alignment of the skeleton, the shape of the bones, structure of the joints, including how the ligaments, tendons, and muscles are attached across joints, and how the internal organs are arranged inside the body, including the organization of the fascia.
The grand design of the body allows for optimal functioning of all systems of the body when neutral posture is attained.
When you are conscious of this posture, I have called this state of being Light Form, or Healing Light Kata.
Healing Light refers to Light Energy. Kata is a Japanese word that means Form. Gravity is an expression of light energy, and it is transmitted primarily through proper alignment of the bones of the skeleton.
Light Form is a way to realize your natural power and natural alignment, because you are holding your body above the Earth as it is designed. The grand design of your body is honored.
Efficiency and speed in movement is assured, as you will spin around an internal axis, with minimal torque. Energy is used most efficiently in this way.
Every movement becomes more beautiful as you are able to move with greater balance, and graceful expression with reserve power. Performance in yoga, dance, and all activities will be enhanced.
One of the grand miracles in how your body works is how decisions are made in allocating precious resources. Increased efficiency is gained by proper alignment with gravity.
I have based these exercises on what I have seen in my clinical practice integrating Yoga and Massage Therapy. I can modify them to suit your condition, and you will have a routine that you can do that will help you.
Conditions that can be helped include: elimination of pain, increase in strength, energy, and increase in flexibility, or stabilization in the case of hypermobile joints, better functioning of all systems of the body.
From what I have seen, about 95% of the population needs improvement in their posture.
I am teaching classes every week in Light Form, or Healing Light Kata, and I see clients for Private Yoga and Massage Therapy Sessions. I have two locations, one for the group classes, and one for the private sessions.
I look forward to seeing you soon for either group class and/or private sessions to help you with your posture.
