At a time when were are constantly adjusting to the ‘new normal’, often on a daily basis, Gaby shares her tips for finding balance in the mind, body and movement…
“Balance is not about being in one perfect, completely still place. Balance is a state of adjusting, shifting, evolving, living within as we move forward.”
In movement practices, training balance tends to go one of two ways…. We tense everything, body rigid, wobble over and probably hear from inside something like, “Come on you should be able to do this!” Or, before we even begin our head saying “You’re not going to be able to do this”, we don’t apply the effort to pose by engaging or muscles, and we’re floppy so again we wobble over.⠀
With practice and awareness our it goes a little more like this… You engage a little then, remind yourself to relax. You stay present second to second and assess whats happening, your mind and body work togather to convince yourself “You can do this” and “You are safe.” This is balance. This is the place between effort and ease. ⠀
