Ligaments set the boundaries of movement between the bones. They coordinate and guide muscular responses by directing the paths of movement between the bones and provide specificity, clarity, and efficiency for the alignment and movement of the bones. Actively engaged ligaments underlie specific and effortless movement of joints. Ligaments support the psychophysical quality of detailed specificity.
This video presents key Body-Mind Centering® principles that bring ease, flexibility, and strength by embodying the ligamentous system through movement and consciousness.
These principles can be applied to yoga, dance, bodywork, somatic psychology, and other somatic movement practices.
Embodying the ligamentous system with sections on: explorations of the ligaments; finding the spiraling action of ligaments; ligaments of the hands, forearms, and elbows; ligaments of the shoulders and shoulder girdles; ligaments of the ribs and spine; ligaments of the pelvis and hips; ligaments of the knees, forelegs, and feet; differentiating flesh and bone; and the embryological development of the ligaments.
