Thinking of Neuromuscular Patterns and Practice

David Keil Yoga 2 Comments

Something I often talk about is our neuromuscular patterns. What are they? How do we develop them? Do they help us? Do they harm us?

The truth is, that at present, the most popular way to interface with the long tradition of yoga is through our physicality. This is not a bad thing. Personally I believe that the journey toward acquiring self-knowledge is ultimately inevitable. Who’s to say where one is on their path and whether it is right or wrong for them?

I feel the need for a fresh post. This is directly related to the “debate” I use that terms loosely about nutation and counter nutation of the sacrum that has been going on in the blogosphere. As of late, right here on my own.

I have been contemplating my own writings and particularly my last post to come to some basic agreement about the movement of the SI joint. It brings up a larger issue of what is “real”? I’m not going to get too esoteric about this but what is the balance between subjective and objective reality as it relates to our own body?
