When opposite actions in the body embrace in a dynamic, animate conversation, we reside in balance -- and wholeness. Oftentimes, one aspect of our being is over-developed or in excess and a counter-opposing aspect is under-developed or lacking. We each embody a personal collective of these imbalances or fragments in posture, body structure, the prana body and the emotional body.
In general, we can all benefit from exploring pelvis mobility and directionality without banning any particular direction (try Pelvic Rocking, Pelvic Clock, and Balance the Pelvis from my book) — means, let’s relax and play with our pelvis' positions in many directions, feel our tendencies, learn what our default placement is… and then learn what we need to do to help our default position become more balanced. If we tend to be posterior, that would call us to work on certain things. If we tend to be anterior, that would call us to work on certain things. Maybe moving in one direction is way easier than another. That’s informative.
