I'm waist deep in training this week. Eight days of intensive training for my yoga therapy practice. I'd like to share with you one of my key learnings this week.
It is all about biomechanics.
This can be very important when we speak of the core. I spent a whole day reviewing and discussing the superficial and deep core.
Now I won't get into the anatomy and biomechanics right now (stay tuned!).
What I will say is consider your own core with the following questions:
1. When you move are you “locking and loading”?
2. Are you gripping in your abdomen?
3. Are you bracing with your breath?
4. Are you using other parts of your body to create stability in your middle?
Good core = Ease
Our core is the ultimate destination of the forces that enter our body be it from a specific exercise or a pushing a door open.
The core is also the initiator. It is the initiation generator of forces that move us in the world.
Yep. The core is pretty darn important. AND understanding the biomechanics of it can be super helpful and getting you to move better and move more often.
Now back to training after my little public service announcement!
Stay well and happy moving,
