Gravity: body’s friend, foe, or teacher

Here is a nice consideration of gravity and how by the help of structural integration and movement integration we can begin use it as our benevolent teacher.

Gravity Friend or Foe? Or is that the wrong question?

“Only our relationship with gravity determines whether we experience it in a constructive way or destructive way. Depending on the structure of the body on which it acts, gravity can either support us and provide a springboard for our activities or it can pull at us and tear us down.”       ~ Joseph Heller

“We want to get you to a place where gravity is your friend; a nourishing force.”       ~ Dr. Ida Rolf
