One of the most fundamental benefits of a movement practice, is the ability for it to be an avenue for self expression.
Although our movement practices may be similar once we have our foundational movement patterns we can begin to express ourselves individually from the most deepest level.
So often when doing so, we can then also discover new movement patterns that we may not have done or even thought to have done previously.
This way of expression in movement can bring the most beautiful sense of freedom just as in any form of art. You can combine it with music and bring all your creativity and passion forward into it. If you haven’t already done so, give it a try. It’s a great way to play and experiment also.
When it comes to fitness training as with many things, it is always best to do what you love. Why force yourself to do some form of exercise that you do not ove or even enjoy when there are so many forms of exercise to choose from that you can find and fall in love with. If you haven’t found yours yet, then simply experiment.
Try different ways and methods; get creative and enjoy yourself whilst also getting results. When you really start doing what you love you may then find yourself finding flow; a state of immersion in what you’re doing. This can happen fairly easily in exercise when we get in to rhythmic patterns and become absorbed in the movement.
This is something I’m working on at the moment and it is a continual process of discovery.
