#40 Toe to Head
In my movement research, I tap into the the fascial system—a connective tissue network essential for our upright posture and the delicate equilibrium of our head on the spine. As I walk, my feet communicate with the ground, transmitting crucial information through elastic connections along the spine.
This dynamic, adaptive framework responds gracefully to every movement, a fact particularly evident in the early stages of life. Picture a baby, relying on these elastic connections to hold its relatively large and heavy head upright—an exquisite dance of adaptability.
In my practice, I play with these connections, consciously navigating the distribution of my head's weight. It's a dance, a dialogue between the fluidity of the fascial network and my intentional movements.
