Movement literacy is much the same as linguistic literacy. You can adopt and use a language by listening to and imitating native speakers. Even a basic grasp of vocabulary can make it possible to communicate and understand fundamental concepts, needs and wishes. That’s an important and valid step towards fluency. Once you get to the point where being specific and accurate allows you to negotiate your interests, navigate conflict or collaborate creatively, mastering the grammar, vocabulary and syntax of that language makes a difference. Structure, timing, tone, context can decisively change the meaning or the outcome of the negotiation. 
The benefits of movement literacy are many and similar with some added plusses. Besides simplifying the study of anatomy, identifying what our bodies are up to and noting the results of the activity helps to evaluate outcome and strategy, which is important for discussions about reasonable expectations, ethical treatment, injury diagnosis and prevention.

Toroid Geometry and the Theory of Everything
NOTE TO SELF: Why does everything look like a doughnut?

We are offered freedom for the first time in human history but we don't know how to be free. We want everything given to us. We want someone else to be responsible. We are still slaves in our minds. We blame the successful for our failures.
We are all participants in our own enslavement.
We are terrified of risking our own decisions, so we are resentful of those who have the courage to risk and succeed.
We legitimize our failings by accusing the successful of greed.
We are envious and weak. We would rather have someone else tell us what to do, so we can also blame someone else when things don't work. That is why we have set up governments/thugs-with-guns, to run roughshod on the successful and bully everyone into sameness.
If we persist in slave mentality, this stalemate between the governing and the governed will remain.

A fine grain look at the roles of the various muscles and the suggestions/limitations of joint geography

Last class we spent time looking at the fiber line pulls of muscles and we didn’t get to go deeply into the wide range of responses and initiatives your muscles possess.
Once again the key words:
Concentric, Ecentric, Isometric, Tension, Elastic Recoil, Lead and Lag, Contraction Inhibition, Proprioception, Connection.

Ieva, Aurimas and Frey convene to discuss some of the main motivations for creating the Conference on Freedom and Constraint

Music: original composition by Max Faust

Concentric, Ecentric, Isometric, Tension, Elastic Recoil, Lead and Lag, Contraction Inhibition, Proprioception, Connection.
Muscles are undoubtedly some of the most complex and least considered organs. Let’s give them their due.

Retracing suggested joint pathways is daily bread, a primary ritual and meditation for all who want to live in peace with their body.
Alignment is sometimes confused with straight lines. In this case we refer to Feldenkrais’ concept of joint “neutrality”, what could also be referred to as joint “centration”.

One of the body’s most ubiquitous building materials is collagen, a versatile, extremely elastic material, that provides scaffolding, boundaries and connectivity.
Some sites in our bodies are subjected to extreme forces on a regular basis. Studies show that the collagen fibers in these areas respond best to shock and load when they are WAVY, rather than STRAIGHT. Bouncing and shaking has been demonstrated to promote waviness.

Receptive and Propulsory structures in the feet. Load and strain distribution point: Metatarsal Weight Distribution Center (MetaCenter). Focus Terminal Stance. Focus "screw-home" property of knee mechanics. Walking on a line is an exercise, not practical in every day life when we need to work with multiple step options and vectors. But, given the chance, most people can learn to balance on a broom handle, or a low tightrope, or the edge of a wall. Its an excellent balance and strengthening aide. People should not walk on or close to the mid line if they do not use their spines of course. They will very likely get sciatica. But I strongly suggest integrating spinal participation in everyday movements. The width of the hips will play a role in coordination of course.
Healthy people need challenges and need to mingle with the world and other people to develop/update their immune systems and stay healthy. The same applies to arch support. A prosthetic replacement for the foot is only valid for someone who's feet are weakened from birth, or those recovering from a disease or an accident (The pillow is a good example. I am forceps generation, a man-made problem.)
Working towards recovery or independence from external aides is the objective of a valid therapy, not further dependence.

Work along connective tissue fiber lines for both flexibility, tensional integrity and tone.
increase elasticity through dynamic rebound

More intimacy with the body's inherent rhythm, its resistance to change.
Conscious directionality is key to evaluating strategy. Considering and working with several directions and destinations at once.
Considering what happens before and after we do what we intend, and how it happens.
Considering our own ambitions and expectations as primary context for advancement.
Reasonable challenges are a sign we are in the space of learning.

Asymmetry, the reason for twisting arcs and spirals, is the rule in the human body-plan and locomotive paradigm, but asymmetry can become symmetrical through repetition. Asymmetry can become symmetry when it is reflective, chronological, reverse and through simultaneous, alternating bi-lateral action.

Passive, adaptive, fragile, robust, intelligent, mechanical, nervous, muscular, organic, isolating however local but also interregional.. what is it? Something in particular? Everything?
How do we apply these contradictions to practice?

This is the cornerstone discipline of the Axis Syllabus. If there is anything we need to continually review and practice, it is our understanding and use of our spines, and by extension, our entire trunk. AS information base drawn from the clinical literature and testing. AS term and authoritative sources introduction.
-Knowledge of anatomy
-dispel myths
-injury reduction
-enhanced endurance and coordination
