This portrays beautifully just how seamless and fluid movement can be! The woman’s practice clearly respects the body as a living, breathing whole, rather than something robotically controlled by the brain with individual moving parts. This balanced and respectful movement encourages clear communication pathways so moving becomes almost effortless – it is possible to be strong, flexible and sensitive! In fact, it is the merging of these qualities that allows the cat to feel its way over and around her body all the while staying totally zen.
As you move around today, even as you type, consider how interconnected you are. Thoughts, breath patterns, postures all have a bearing on yourself as a whole. Take a big breath into your belly, and as as you exhale notice your chest gently drop, your shoulders relax, your jaw soften, your head feel more open, your mind more calm. Repeat and enjoy.
