Our skeletal system gives our body the basic form through which we locomote through space, act on the environment, and sculpt and create the energy forms in space that we call movement. Through embodying the skeletal system, the mind becomes structurally organized, providing the supporting ground for our thoughts, the leverage for ideas, and the fulcrums or spaces between our ideas for the articulation and understanding of their relationships.
Embodiment of the skeletal system provides the foundation for the psychophysical qualities of clarity, effortlessness, and form.
This video is one of a series of three videos on the Skeletal System including Lower Limbs, Upper Limbs, and Axial Skeleton. It presents key Body-Mind Centering® principles that bring ease, flexibility, and strength by embodying the bones and joints of the upper limbs from the hands to the shoulder girdle and ribs through movement and consciousness.
Embodying the bones and joints of the upper limbs from the hands to the shoulder girdle and ribs, including sections on the bones of the hands, ulnar disk, radius and ulna, elbow, humerus, windmill action of the scapula, freeing the rubs, finger relationships to shoulder girdle and ribs and working with the layers of bone.
