The Difficulty in Physical Movement and Expression

Going through the second period of Covid-19, we live I would say a "social adventure", the loss of our daily life combined with the uncertainty about the future, develops more and more the rigidity of both thinking and body-aesthetic movement, the caring touch took the form of the impending threat of transmitting the virus, and perhaps not acknowledging the fundamental human need for touch and lack, physically leads to stiffening of movement and specifically in the arms and legs. We experience a reality where we have small or large losses, both individual and collective grief affect physical and mental health.​

These are the moments when we do a work with dedication (simple or difficult) or even when we admire a landscape, an image.​

As a dancer, I understand the difficulty of physical movement and consequently of expression, observing people avoiding touch (greeting) with somatokinetic expressions that express fear.​

The body has its own code to speak, to express, the emotions that are not confessed. For example, a body that in this new daily life does not move, there is no "flow", loses more and more well-being, weighs, stresses, weakens and loses "functional movement"​

What does functional motion mean? ​

By this term is meant the movement of the breath and the body that are in harmony with the physical and mental functions.

What does functional motion mean? ​

So the purpose, in the midst of confinement, is to start using our body. in the first phase by making a series of simple movements and with the help of breathing to relax the muscles of the trunk so as to help some internal organs (eg intestines, stomach, etc.) to eliminate toxins and waste through the digestive tract.

We observe the heartbeat, we observe the movement of the breath, the intensity and the relaxation. We choose a music that we like and we let its sound seduce us, we improvise our personal dance and express what we feel and experience with ultimate destination the physical, mental strength and consciousness.

Every day is different, every improvisation is an opportunity to get closer to ourselves, and no one can limit that.

Μείνετε ασφαλείς και συνδεδεμένοι με τον πολύτιμο εαυτό σας!!​

In the journey of our lives we are constantly exposed to situations that require us to adapt to continue on our path. Sometimes we do well, sometimes not. Sometimes we fit in with others and sometimes not, Sometimes we are happy, and sometimes we are disappointed ... No matter how pleasant or unpleasant we continue ...

Σα βγεις στον πηγαιμό για την Ιθάκη,
να εύχεσαι νάναι μακρύς ο δρόμος,
γεμάτος περιπέτειες, γεμάτος γνώσεις.
Τους Λαιστρυγόνας και τους Κύκλωπας,
τον θυμωμένο Ποσειδώνα μη φοβάσαι,
τέτοια στον δρόμο σου ποτέ σου δεν θα βρεις,
αν μέν’ η σκέψις σου υψηλή, αν εκλεκτή
συγκίνησις το πνεύμα και το σώμα σου αγγίζει.

ΙΘΑΚΗ Κ.Π. Καβάφης. ​
