Here’s a photo of Dominika explaining how the sacral nerves bundle to pass through the glutes and down in to the legs.

Did you miss the workshop? A replay is available, valid through 6/26. That should give you ample time to watch, pause, try, experiment, teach.

YAWN on this cloudy, rainy Phoenix day.

A true yawn is a pandiculation. It’s a narrowing around the center created by dynamic opposition through the joints and a longer inhale with a suspension. (Watch animals: dogs and cats stretch like this all the time.) 🌀 In this pic @hartleypaola is reaching with the cables from her midline while in a lunge. 🌀 its a riff on a respiratory stretch we practiced at Z-Health® Performance Solutions T-Phase. 🌀 Breathe from your belly, to your diaphragm, to your chest and elongate!

Balance play. Standing on one leg (lifted foot on block), pulling the cable, and moving the head.
——
Round one: eyes open;
Round two: eyes closed;
Round three: twist and pull with eyes closed
I only used 10lbs here. I prefer a little bit more for more mapping of stabilizing muscles.
Eventually, the non-weight bearing leg would be suspended in the air (front, side or back).
——
So much research is showing how important vestibular work is for maintaining brain health. AT LEAST 15 minutes per day!!

Holiday stress gotcha wound up? I know it’s got me in it’s grip!

The antidote? Mindful breathing and mindful movement to help reset the nervous system, which is probably going a bit limbic.

This image? A Christmas ornament dangling from the xyphoid process. Put this image in your mind’s eye and imagine the small weight anchoring your ribs to your p***c bone. Now take a few more deep breaths.

Happy Solstice!
Here in the Northern Hemisphere, it is the shortest day of the year. And tonight we’re blessed with the alignment of Jupiter and Saturn in the just-after-sunset sky. It’s been 800 years since this happened in just this way!!

In honor, my class this evening will take a 5-minute pause to observe this planetary moment: a once-in-many-lifetimes sight.

Join us and gaze to the southwest at the ✨.

Blessings of the Season!!!

A little clip from my weekly virtual session with @stronger_human. We were trouble shooting the chronic pain in my left foot, and landed at this complex pattern. “PMRF, Cerebellum and Intrinsic Foot Muscles.”
——-
Old injuries to my left foot have been nagging at me most of this year. It’s wearisome. Very little simple stuff is doing the trick.
——-
I knew I needed FLH rehab, as my left big toe is weak. For load, I resisted with my hands against the thigh. Then we added dorsiflexion of my other foot to challenge my coordination. My brain LOVES complicated movements! How do I know? Because after I stood up and walked, I felt joyful, my gait was better, and my foot didn’t hurt.
——
Thanks @zhealth_performance for giving us the tools to change pain without medical intervention.

Exercise: The Least You Can Do

"After six months, a group who walked an average of 72 minutes a week at two to three mph—that's about 10 minutes of mall-pace striding a day—had significantly improved heart strength and general fitness, nearly matching the efforts of women exercising almost twice as long."

So mask up and meet up for a socially distanced walk with a friend!

Using a resistance band for some self-assistance on the GYROTONIC® JSB.
——-
In variation 1, the band is under my sitz bones. This is giving me better proprioception for pelvic position and allowing me to find more “true” hip extension.

In variation 2, the band sits right at the junction between my pelvis and femur, giving me clearer access to medial glide.
———
Great with clients and awesome for self-care. Both feel really supportive and delicious!
