Reverb 10, day 12 – body integration

Standard

December 12 Body Integration

This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present?

My mind and my body are frequently not integrated at all; in fact, my body takes sheer delight in embarrassing me with its clumsy ineptitude.  There was, however, a glorious moment in March this year when, after two years of classes, I finally did a birdsnest in the ropes in trapeze.  This is a move where you stand on the bar, and then turn upside down, wrapping your feet above your head in the ropes and arching out your back.  After so long of being scared to take my feet off the bar it was a really glorious moment to realise that I could do it, I could do it very well, and that it was actually a lot of fun.
