The Idea of a Perfect Movement

Thought for the day…

The body’s instinct is to move. The IDEA OF A PERFECT MOVEMENT is innate in our brain, bones and tissues.  Notice how your body feels when you see a dancer…

or when you watch this performance by rhythmic gymnast, Yana Kudryavtseva…

You might notice your body wanting to or even trying to copy these beautiful movements.  At a deep neural, cellular level inside us, they feel known, possible even.

Pilates helps us realise this idea of perfect movement by encouraging us to be present in the body, to breathe correctly, to concentrate deeply, to centre ourselves physically and mentally, to be in control of our movements, to be precise and efficient in the way we move and to flow.
