motion / memory / body

I was assigned this short anatomy video for homework in my yoga teacher training at The Breathing Room. The woman in the video, Grace Jull, offered some of the most profound wisdom I collected during my training. As a mental health professional, I was already deeply interested in how the body stores memory and the impact of epigenetics on physical and mental health. Grace described “conversations with our soft tissues” and the impact that mindful movement can have on expanding the space between stimulus and response. She inspired me to continuing studying the fascia as well as patterns of the body and mind and to remember that “life is motion.”
