Recently there was an article in the Sydney Morning Herald on what has been called BQ or body intelligence – ok take that whatever way you like but dig a little deeper and names aside, it does makes sense.
I wanted to say more about what that means – especially in sports and for dancers. The more we are able to ‘be in our bodies’ the less likely we are to try and impose ourselves on our body and the less likely we are to injury ourselves or cause pain. Dancers know this and rely on it but it is equally true for athletes – be they amateur or professional – those who go to the gym or if just trying to be active in spite of the pain or discomfort.
So here goes.
