Floor play with sister and niece.
Much of the work I do is also teaching people how to get on the floor and get back up.
I train my clients to not be fearful of the ground beneath us.
A big part of somatic coaching is to lean into the support of gravity so we don’t have to do all the work of tensing all our muscles and be in fight / flight mode constantly.
In today’s society we spend way too much time in the vertical plane, and on elevated platforms such as chairs and couches. We slouch into them and then collapse into our elevated beds at the end of the day.
Ease your way onto the floor and uncover your inner child.
Your spine will thank you for it 💃
