“Feet parallel, push your hips back, pull your chest tall, stiffen your upper back, tuck your chin in, grit your teeth, drive your hips forward and lift!”
There’s certainly no shortage of exercise cues out there claiming “this is the right way to move” and “that is the wrong way.”
There’s nothing wrong with cues per se; they can be very useful.
However, in our experience it’s when they become rigid definitions of right and wrong, good and bad, that they can really hold us back from a deeper experience of self expression & physical freedom that’s available.
It's because they often make the technique (external) more important than feeling and honouring what's going on inside your body (internal).
And if we ignore what's going on inside our body and the signals it's giving us for long enough, this can lead to pain, injury, or limiting results.
I've had too many people come to see me after the technique they were told was going to help, actually harmed them.
Physical freedom to us is not about having a rigid definition of the right or wrong way to use your body; it's about finding your unique ways of moving in alignment with your needs from moment to moment.
