Daily, I watch people’s movement as they come in and out of the gym. There is a lot going on with this movement.
For the average person who examines someone doing a squat, performing a push up, or throwing a punch, it just looks like strength and power being applied to an outside force.
Yet, I see movement differently. This is what I know and see what movement does for people.
Movement is medicine. Movement creates healing through new and improved body patterns. Movement heals wounds that have scarred people. Movement is anger management. It improves poor circulation for those who have high blood pressure. Movement helps build confidence and self esteem. Movement develops focus, increased concentration and a form of meditative state. When you move, you go from a learning phase to an autonomic phase. Movement develops self love, as you learn to take better care of the body you have been given in this lifetime. Movement channels destructive energies into positive emotions and care. You create a quality of life, health, and wealth when you move better and more efficiently. And, movement provides the most important driving need as human beings – it brings people together and creates human connection.
Movement is medicine for the mind, body, and soul.
I witness the strong correlation each and every day between positive well being and focused movement, as I see the impact it’s has on the ladies of Onthebutton.club, participants of Rock Steady Boxing, and the boxers that I coach. I am so proud and thankful to be a major part of Movement’s Power.
