This is how we roll.
Rolling seems to be a forgotten form of locomotion.
Makes sense - it's slow and inefficient! Once we learned how to get around with our legs we may have forgotten about rolling . But a little practice with this primitive pattern of rolling can be amazing for your movement base as well as for yoga, running, sports and other complex movements.
Rolling has some awesome benefits:
⭐️First, you (re)learn authentic spinal stabilization by using your head, neck, and eyes ? to drive your movement. this is a crucial step, after developing proper breathing patterns. .
⭐️Second, while most people have no problem tensing, bracing and gripping their way through life, most of us don't know how to let go . Rolling reveals your ability to relax certain muscles while using others.
⭐️Finally, nothing is more fun than a grown-up rolling on the floor.
The underlying cause for many a poor movement issue is a dysfunctional core - The center of your body.
You need core stability if you expect to move your arms and legs properly.
?To re-establish a functional core, rolling is the next critical step after making sure you're ✨breathing diaphragmatically✨

Why make friends with your body?
Sure, there are a trillion other ways to spend your time?
What makes cultivating a relationship with your body more important than cultivating a relationship with let's say FB, or Instagram ? ;)...
Getting in tune with your body and taking care of your physical being I feel may have the most direct influence on your experience of the world.
Everything we do: doing our "work", playing with our kids, walking with a friend...you can't do that without a body.
You get what I'm saying, in order to improve our subjective experience of our everyday lives, it needs to start with cultivating a healthy relationship with our bodies :)
