Thinking Outside the Box

Thinking Outside the Box If you think about something the same way that it has been thought of in the past, you will invariably come up with the same answers as before.

Let’s Bounce!

Let's Bounce Is Annoying I'll bet you get annoyed when someone you are sitting with and talking to bounces their foot up and down, perhaps shaking the table you are sitting at. It's a nervous habit some people have, that is remarkably effective at transferring their nervousness to you! Personally I sometimes want to shout … Continue reading Let’s Bounce!

Systema – Neutral Points of Contact and Subterfuge

Systema Principles In Systema, the four main principles may be relatively simple and straight-forward, but the nuances are subtle and complex. One of the nuances that has taken me many years to understand (and I'm still going) is the concept of a Neutral Point of Contact.

Mindful Connectivity and Internal Yoga
Internal Yoga

 

Every Move You make

The concepts within Mindful Connectivity are ubiquitous: they are in, ‘every breath you take, every move you make, every step you take.’  (The Police – Every Breath You Take). In a sense, they are a form of Internal Yoga that can be applied to anything you like.

Threnergy – Mindful Connectivity

Here, those fundamental principles from Threnergy Mindful Connectivity are emphasised for use in advanced yoga practise:

  • Energy flows better through relaxed muscle rather than tense muscle
  • Relaxed strong poses are better than tense strong poses
  • Structure is dictated by tension rather than compression
  • Strength comes more from tendon strength rather than muscle strength
  • You are always moving even if that movement is only internal
  • Visualisation can enhance a movement or pose
  • Structure is based on Threnergy Lines that can be focused on individually, but they all connect together
  • The same principles of expansion, relaxation, contraction, bowing, and spiralling apply to each and every Threnergy Line and within each and every Yoga pose
  • Structured breathing can enhance established Yoga breathing techniques
  • Your body can connect with your mind in a seamless way – the very same Threnergy visualisation principles that you apply to your body apply to your mind.
  • Threnergy Internal Yoga enables you to focus on every part of your body including each of your organs
