MOVEMENT AS MEDICINE
Movement as medicine.
This core concept is a belief I have had now for well over a decade. There's a story behind everything. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all our stories is a glimpse of where something began, and there can begin the pathway to recovery, or healing in one way or another.
I have loved Caroline Myss for years… her message that our Biology is our Biography resonates for me... also one of my favourite senior teachers also said…”issues in your tissues” which is a kinda fun way of looking at it too.
There is a level of healing that we can facilitate for ourselves by becoming more intuitively aware. Not to rule out the need for medicine, but I believe we have a huge capacity to help heal ourselves, it sometimes just requires a little more work. There is no magic pill… and healing can take time, patience and a whole lot of courage.
I have so many health challenges, but for each one I've recognised through my own experience with yoga how you can open up space to recognise whats asking to be felt, and to work-out those "issues in our tissues" so we can work inside-out to help heal both the body and mind, and let us not forget the heart. I truly believe it's all connected. Sickness and imbalance doesn’t happen over night and wellness doesn’t happen overnight either. Our body talks, we just have to start listening. Experiencing and becoming curious about the stories held within us so we can cultivate deeper healing for ourselves.
There’s a great quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and it says, “Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret it patience.”
