Moving from the Inside Out shows us how to resolve complex movement issues, balance stability and instability, increase power and precision, and explore our own movement using innate learning strategies. Written for practitioners, movement therapists, and somatic teachers and students, the curious athlete or casual learner will also find much to gain in learning the practical and accessible fundamentals of movement. Authors Lesley McLennan and Julie Peck introduce seven core principles that address: The dynamic balance between instability and stability How to move with ease and grace The secrets of flexibility and support embedded in every musculo-skeletal system How anxiety and curiosity shape our individual developmental sequence How qualities of movement are clues for your investigation The special role of intra-abdominal pressure in our physical and emotional worlds How moving and learning are entwined"--
