Move me tender – Alchemy of sequencing
What are the benefits of moving the body in parts? Dividing the body in parts to increase the awareness for the whole?
Sequencing our body parts or physical masses allows for less inertial resistance and promotes tonic changes in neuromuscular activity. It allows for moving slow, yet keeping the sense of dynamics and stretching tissues gently and with elasticity through movement. These practices gradually and tenderly open doors towards individual and contextual flexibility. Sequencing is also a useful tool to break down movement processes and integrate new coordination, and it empowers autonomous learning while moving.
