So far, the experience has been profound. I’m feeling a need on some level to do some crazy exercise to shake it all up and get back into my past default in questing for muscular strength. However, having just received a second 1:1 hands on session of Body Mind Centering, from the lead trainer Katy Dymoke, I’m just going to continue to lay on the floor and be with the tangled mess which is my inner body.. This beautifully sweet training, and supporting body work is helping me to unwind the world of pain felt in my body which; I had surrendered to needing to endure forever, now I’m not so sure.
It’s a crying shame that despite the amount of yoga and Pilates sessions I’ve received that there isn’t more of this information present. I have just 2 teachers in each discipline whom teach from this perspective. THIS is what it’s all about, not your abs, your yoga selfies or your legs a kimbo!.. I’m so exhausted, in a good way, hence why this is the only thing I’ve managed to publish through out my so far 2 weeks Somatics training, but more is coming! Watch this space ..
Day 3 Nervous System, 2nd Session with Katy
Dropping in, listening..
Relearning how to hear.
A deep yearning for these pathways to clear!
To sense in(my)sides,
Of course before sensing the other may fully arise..
Organ support, how to purport?
After a life time of neglect,
6 short years means I’m not quite there yet..
So many feelings, mainly in my gut and head,
To hear, implicitly, impartially,
My body craving this in its totality.
I’m sorry, I’m here now..
No wonder it all hurts, for so long working as a disjunct and abstract organism..
It’s not just you dear muscles, ligaments and bones whom need to hold up this being.
It’s not just you dear organs, fluids and glands, whom cope with digestion, procreation and feeling..
As, all together, a synergy can persist,
Allowing ease, strength and harmony to exist.
Crossed messages, fibres and pain,
Never again can I move the same..
