Our skeletal system gives our body the basic form through which we locomote through space, act on the environment, and sculpt and create the energy forms in space that we call movement. Through embodying the skeletal system, the mind becomes structurally organized, providing the supporting ground for our thoughts, the leverage for ideas, and the fulcrums or spaces between our ideas for the articulation and understanding of their relationships.
Embodiment of the skeletal system provides the foundation for the psychophysical qualities of clarity, effortlessness, and form.
This video is one of a series of three videos on the Skeletal System including Lower Limbs, Upper Limbs, and Axial Skeleton. It presents key Body-Mind Centering® principles that bring ease, flexibility, and strength by embodying the bones and joints of the lower limbs from the feet to the pelvic halves through movement and consciousness.
