It is my mission within each and every session to create a true learning experience within the exercises we may perform for strengthening or the stretches we may perform for releasing tightness and tension.
I'm really here to relay experiential information that can change the way you perceive your body as opposed to giving you cues for how-to-do or adding a tip or two while you move.
Backbone connotes a mutual feeling of both ease and empowerment.
There are several other bones along the backside of the body
that serve to support the spinal column and
thus give full access to the entire line of spine and
grant a true sense of both ease and empowerment -
these other bones along the backside are
the sit bones,
and the sacrum.
(the triceps, the lats, the lower traps)
ultimately gives one
the sense of being winged.
Joseph Campbell states,
"The serpent bound to the earth, the eagle in spiritual flight - isn't that conflict something we all experience? And then, when they amalgamate, we get a wonderful dragon, a serpent with wings. All over the earth, people recognize these images."
I had a revelatory moment one day in my teaching while relaying to a student that the quality of the spine moving through space is an undulation.
I remembered someone telling me that the spine is a serpentine line.
You'll discover and experience all the ranges of motion of the spine within your study
with the Backbone and Wingspan Integrated Back Strength way of understanding your body:
Rounding the Spine Arching the Spine Side Bending the Spine
and Rotation of the Ribcage while Unwinding or Spiraling the Spine
I put together that serpentine comes from serpent.
I realized that when I chose Backbone and Wingspan, without knowing it, I had given my business - and my beliefs about the body - a mythological name.
Backbone and Wingspan
is a spine that has the capacity to feel flight.
