Awareness Through Movement® Classes Term 3 with Jenny D’Cruz
Exploring fundamental movement
In this series we will explore fundamental movement patterns. We will discover how rolling and moving in a spiral path can lead to more efficient and effortless movement.
When we study the structure of our body, we notice how the muscles are organised in diagonal directions. They spiral around the joints and torso almost wrapping us from head to toe. The anatomical design of the muscles and supporting connective tissue has been described as a double helix. Various movement combinations bring about flexion, extension and rotation.
The spiral organisation creates the potential for power and agility. This is required for many movements starting with fundamental movements like rolling, sitting, and crawling. More complex movement sequences develop for walking, running, climbing, swimming and throwing.
Throughout our natural environment there is evidence of spirals. The ocean currents swirl around the world, the wind spirals in creation of a cyclone, petals and leaves in flowers and plants are arranged in a spiral, shells on the beach, and planets orbiting the sun are beautiful examples of this recurring pattern. There is a biological and evolutionary explanation for this structure and function for survival of man and many other species in nature. Indulge your curiosity and join me for this 7-week series of lessons to discover this intriguing spiral movement connection within us and in relation to our environment.
