Practice and movement theory
From my profession, as Masseur and Smart teacher I know quite a lot about attitude and physical complaints. Ismakogie is a posture and movement theory. We as teachers mainly look at body posture and do movements, many calm and gentle movements. We show the exercise, participate and pronounce the movement. You are going to feel. You ask yourself: ‘what do I feel where’ and ‘where do I feel what’.
Body language and attitude tells something about attitude to life
I already knew from the Ismakogie: our body language and posture tell something about our attitude to life. They show how you look at life. Psychic resistance is accompanied by physical muscle tension. This is stored by the body. And physical complaints can reveal themselves.
Body & mind Language
In our childhood you have probably heard it: “behave” or “do not act like that”. This reduces your life energy. Your body language and posture also adjust. Beliefs attach themselves to the body. If we have a (physical) complaint we will talk about this blockage or stagnation. It is known from the ESTIV that the non-verbal aspect is the most important in our communication. It is even less sensitive to misinterpretation than the use of words. Body & Mind Language sets your body in motion with interventions. A shift is being experienced. The client experiences that the stagnation does not mean the end station. This leads to an increase in flexibility, creativity and liveliness.
An exercise from the book ‘Body & Mind Language’:
A lays down on the floor, on the back. B sits on the floor behind A’s head. A places the head in the open hands of B. The head of A is moved by B.
There are questions related to this exercise that you can answer for yourself, including:
- Do you dare to let life take you into a stream of creativity and innovation?
- Which of your beliefs are inhibiting for you?
- Do you give a new idea a chance and do you dare to take a risk?
I thought it was a wonderful afternoon. I was touched at several moments by awareness and reflection in the body.
