The Physiology & Physics of Letting Go
I know. Heady title, but simply put: When we don’t release tension and painful emotions that build up from stressful situations and trauma, we literally end up holding ourselves too tight. When we (involuntarily) do this, we don’t just tense up. We don’t breathe as deeply, shutting down our body’s system to literally support us.
While we practice AlignUp we feel spaciousness as we build strength.
- It begins with our body’s natural ability to synchronize our breathing to our core muscles.
- This synchronization uses the core muscles in a very specific way: to support our spine, and our skeleton while we rest and move – we feel like a weight’s been lifted every time we practice and that becomes the condition of each person’s body.
- We also show the body its natural ability to release fascia via neurogenic tremoring – the ultimate release valve for that intensity that makes you feel like you uncontrollably erupt. A game-changer for recovery from trauma.
- We deeply ground ourselves. We learn how to work with the ground, and to feel out the most gravity-friendly way to let our weight down to the ground.
You’ll find that the challenges that lead you here will become your best teachers, you might even be grateful for them leading you to a deeper connection to yourself and joy in your body.
After some time, you’ll find that the ease you’ve brought to your body can be brought to your life. You’ll free yourself up to find the things (career, hobbies, people) that make you feel good. If you choose, they’ll also make it easy for you to connect to a power greater than yourself.
