LET GO & CONNECT WITH YOUR body CENTRE
The movement must come from the centre if we want to perform the exercises correctly. However, the movement can only efficiently come from the centre if the force with which the movement is performed is not compulsive.
So, the state of “power without force” is essential. The movement arises from a state of relaxation – from a stillness – and the activation in one part of the body causes a release in another part of the body. This is where joy starts.
