Where do you find your stability?

by | Feb 23, 2011 | Yoga

Exploratory movement in yesterday’s Hatha class revealed something very interesting.

Oftentimes we lack awareness and/or strength in deep, intrinsic muscles of the inner core. Instead, when our stability is challenged, we engage the familiar, big postural muscles creating tightness and tension. Some of us, without being consciously aware of what’s happening, also hold our breath or lock our jaws.

How do we change that pattern?

Nourishing relaxation above all, before we even start moving, is the key to success. Some simple techniques might include breath awareness, the practice of pranayama or a body scan.

Hey, my name is Julia

Living with chronic pain has taught me to look for solutions in unlikely places –  places where most people see only problems.

Over the years I’ve gotten to be pretty good at this problem-solving and silver-lining finding thing.

So good that I felt compelled to share what I’ve learned and help others to find their sea legs while navigating, living, and winning their battle with chronic pain.
