See how your posture stands up with this simple awareness challenge!
Testing our core posture – TangoBreath the study and practice of Argentine tango movement and dance.
Sometimes it’s good to test our posture, to see how it stands up to shifts in our center of gravity.
Occasionally, it’s a good idea just to check where we stand, literally, in our bodies– how solid is our “good” posture, and how does our body compensate when we throw in strange elements, like high heels?
We might be diligent about maintaining what we think is good posture, only to later find out we weren’t using our bodies efficiently to support that posture. A good test is to see how our core responds when we shift our center of gravity. If it is strong, our posture will not be phased, but if it is weak, our body will compensate by contorting.Read More
We have another awareness challenge. This one is from the ministry of silly walks. Find balance and stability, your free hip, contrabody spiral and a relaxed comfortable walk by experimenting with this new silly walk.
Silly anesthetized walk
The silly anesthetized walk is to help you find stability and engagement with the ground while relaxing and finding a ‘loose leg’.
In tango, a relaxed yet stable walk is very important. It turns out that the same walk in our everyday life can help us be more engaged in the world around us. Feeling our strength in the ground and relaxing through our steps while standing tall feels really good! We can feel much more aware of our selves and the world around us. Relaxing into the walk can be difficult, but luckily we have the ‘Ministry of Silly Walks’ to help us! This is a very silly walk, so maybe you just want to do it at home, unless you don’t mind looking silly, in which case feel free to do this walk wherever you like.Read More
