Gravity & Symmetry for better body awareness and control

In Baseworks, we are intentionally defining the goals of movements in a way which does not match how movement goals are habitually set by our motor system on a day-to-day basis. Breaking habitual movement patterns allows us to inspect the unconscious influences on our movements, build better body awareness and control.

This VS will focus on 2 Baseworks strategies to break habitual movement patterns:

  • GRAVITY is when we try to find identical body part positions in different directions in gravity – similar to how we can rotate Tetris shapes, orienting them in different ways without any change in shape.

  • SYMMETRY is when we look for symmetrical arrangements in asymmetrical forms.

Both these strategies rely on very simple visual imagery, yet systematically following these strategies is very effective in changing how we can feel and control our muscles.

This VS will be approximately 20% theory and 80% practice.

Whereas the Online Practice Sessions are designed to provide the opportunity to develop your practice through repetition, the Virtual Sessions are designed to provide real-time feedback and insight, which can then be re-applied during the Online Practice Sessions.

The level of interactivity in the Virtual Sessions is dependent on the interest/involvement of the participants and may vary from session to session.

Each virtual session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes.
