When you look at all these postures do you get any kind of a sense of how differently your body might feel in them?
From the feet up the whole length of the physical chain – the bare bones – of our body changes shape and this can only happen in the first place by muscle activity. Only some of the muscles will be required to work and sometimes the opposing muscles (i.e. those that action the opposite movement) will remain switched off – they may even get lazy. For the muscles that have to contract to make the shape, there will be no reprieve – they will work and work and work, often getting short and tight and miserable in the process.
We are designed for movement in every which direction and joints can only move to the extent that the soft tissue around them allows and that the required muscles have the ability to contract.
Our postural shape happens for many, many different reasons – conscious, unconscious, physical and emotional – and without our knowing it, often becomes habitual.
In this workshop, TillyLou will discuss main postural types and their implications for the pelvic floor and guide you through moves and shapes to experience the feeling sense in your own body.
In the morning TillyLou will be presenting “Why the Buttafly” exploring the many different uses of the Buttafly.
Refreshments are provided and a simple vegetarian lunch for those staying all day.
