Walking while Standing in Place
Walking requires that our spine moves in spirals; the pelvis move with a three dimenasional figure 8 pathway; hip joints gliding; ankles and feet move through a spiral from the heel toward the toes; and the arms swing freely while the focus stays forward. Our many joints along these pathways need to be easy and free to move. Walking while standing in place enhances the small motions of the body helping the flow of walking. At first, you can feel how difficult one side is compared to the other. Continue moving and you will feel it smooth out and become more fácil. I recommend to clients to do this movement when their backs feel stiff. I do this movement on long airplane rides. It truly helps with the discomfort of sitting too long.
