Find Space in Your Joints | Inversion Sequence // Peak Pose: Down Dog OTW w/ Splits

Intent:

We often think that our bones and joints are in contact with one another.  This is untrue.  Tom Meyers is famous for saying:

“…there ain’t no bones that touch, no where, in no body!”

If we simplify the body to an analogy of a tent; the bones are the support struts, the muscles, ligaments and tendons (the connective matrix) are the guidelines that hold the fabric of the tent up.  Therefore, our bones are suspended in space, held together by tissue that is somewhat malleable.

In your practice move from and into a place of finding space in your joints.  In each pose  think about moving bone away from bone.  Feel the expansiveness of  your breath and how it aids in finding and creating space in body.
