How Differentiation Looks
If you have experienced low back pain, tight hamstrings, sciatica and more you can resolve it by learning how to differentiate. Imagine not having to stretch because you never feel stiff!
The video of a belly dancer with amazing differentiation in her torso demonstrates how fluid, released and sensual we can be. Most of us rely on our arms and legs to be differentiated but our torso becomes a frozen block unable to twist or bend. Lack of differentiation in the torso is because your joints are constricted by muscles. Ironically, the less we differentiate the weaker we become.
How To Differentiate
Unlike the myth of core strength coming from muscles, it actually comes from the skeleton supported by muscles. Unfortunately we train our muscles to try to do the job of the skeleton which leads to stiffness because of how muscles work. Once the torso is constrained we rely on the muscles of our arms and shoulders for heavy tasks and our leg muscles for heavy lifting. By leveraging the skeleton to lift among many other activities we do not stress any one area of the body at the expense of another.
How It Feels To Function Optimally
To be fully differentiated means being aware of how it feels to move and responding appropriately to brain messages. Your brain only lets you know when you are misusing and overusing muscles. When you feel stiff, sore, fatigue, pain, or stress your brain is telling you to release the muscles interfering with functionality. When you are functioning optimally with full range of motion you should feel nothing.
Start your process to differentiated functionality and never have to stretch again!
