Balance Secrets From a Dancer

This article is amazing.  The type of amazing that can completely change the way you do something when you try it’s concepts and practice them until they are natural.  The whole article is about balance and how tension is what causes us to lose our balance.  Gravity doesn’t pull us sideways or at an angle – always straight down.  Tension in our bodies always resists gravity and the result is less contact with the ground, lateral forces that in turn require MORE tension to counter, and more energy spent to keep ourselves upright.

I’m not a dancer, but as I was reading the article my mind was filled with movements in which I have too much tension and need to learn to relax into the position.  Try it out and see how your movement changes!
