A big thank you to Kali Yoga for promoting and housing my latest workshop, Yoga as Therapy, where we explored the topic of connectivity in the body – first from an anatomical/biomechanics perspective and then from a physiological/energetic perspective. I’m hoping the participants left with a bit more appreciation for how every bit of our being is connected and intertwined.
Here’s an except from Elissa Cobb’s book, The Forgotten Body, that I read in the workshop to get the participant curious about the intelligence of our cellular bodies….
For some reason, unknown by modern science, at a certain point in our fetal development our tiny hearts suddenly begin to beat. Yet even before this miracle occurs, the cells of our body already have mapped out the essential framework of our bodies and have created the tin pump of a heart that will soon begin the thump-thump sound of “I am.” And all of this intelligence occurs before our brain, the part of us that we consider the be the house of such intelligence, develops.
The human body – what a marvellous, mysterious, machine…
It was a great group of people at the workshop. Thank you all for sharing, experimenting, and discussing with me!
